The Boy Scouts of America Statement:
“For 103 years, the Boy Scouts of America has been a part of the fabric of this nation, with a focus on working together to deliver the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training.
“Based on growing input from within the Scouting family, the BSA leadership chose to conduct an additional review of the organization’s long-standing membership policy and its impact on Scouting’s mission. This review created an outpouring of feedback from the Scouting family and the American public, from both those who agree with the current policy and those who support a change.
“Today, following this review, the most comprehensive listening exercise in Scouting’s history the approximate 1,400 voting members of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Council approved a resolution to remove the restriction denying membership to youth on the basis of sexual orientation alone. The resolution also reinforces that Scouting is a youth program, and any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting. A change to the current membership policy for adult leaders was not under consideration; thus, the policy for adults remains in place. The BSA thanks all the national voting members who participated in this process and vote.
“This policy change is effective Jan. 1, 2014, allowing the Boy Scouts of America the transition time needed to communicate and implement this policy to its approximately 116,000 Scouting units.
“The Boy Scouts of America will not sacrifice its mission, or the youth served by the movement, by allowing the organization to be consumed by a single, divisive, and unresolved societal issue. As the National Executive Committee just completed a lengthy review process, there are no plans for further review on this matter.
“While people have different opinions about this policy, we can all agree that kids are better off when they are in Scouting. Going forward, our Scouting family will continue to focus on reaching and serving youth in order to help them grow into good, strong citizens. America’s youth need Scouting, and by focusing on the goals that unite us, we can continue to accomplish incredible things for young people and the communities we serve.”

No we do not. We don’t need junior rump rangers using scouting to further their agenda.
I have just told my wife that in the future when Boy Scouts come to my door to sell their stuff...they are to be told sternly that because of their acceptance of homosexual members...they are to get off my property and not return. In the past, I have always bought stuff from them to support them....NO MORE!
Sadly .... not any more.
The queers harassed them into surrendering. Now guess what the average Scout is going to get?
Moral cowards will do it every time. No backbones, no notochords, no nothing. Just plenty of yellow, and Lucifers on their board whispering the counsel of surrender.
Obviously the poison pill that they inserted , knowing it will ensure homo adults as Scoutmasters. So it's ok for scouts to be homo, but not adults? It's illogical nonsense, inconsistent, and indefensible. It won't be 2 years before they capitulate to the gaystapo lawyers.
The pathetic part is that this is all about money. They did it to protect their jobs, their organization, their gig. They are going to submit my boys to the company of mentally ill so that they can continue to have meetings, push paper around, and make ad campaigns. Like hell they are, not with my boys.
