Posted on 05/24/2013 6:32:58 AM PDT by chessplayer
As counterintuitive as it may sound for an organization with such a wholesome and all-American reputation, it seems that secrecy and heavy-handed tactics are the order of the day at the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) meeting that will decide whether the BSA will change its century-old policy to expand its membership to include open and avowed homosexuals.

This is a ban within a State licensed activity. It is (supposedly) not a constraint on free speech.
My days with scouting are far behind me, but up until yesterday I remained enthusiastically supportive of the entire program.
That all changed yesterday.
Yesterday was a very sad day.
Can't see how that will help them and I worry about the greater consequences for the rest of US.
In the intense spiritual warfare being waged around us, that was a major battle lost.
So much for parents who enrolled their sons due to the BSA providing a “safe, moral environment.” Anyone remaining in this disgrace of an organization gets no respect from me.
“..A couple staunch gay-rights supporters have risen to key leadership positions in BSAs national leadership and are pushing for the change..”
This how the gay and other far left movements have taken over churches, universities and many once worthy organizations. It is their modus operendi
Sounds as though homosexual activists wormed their way into the BSA’s leadership and took over the entire organization.
> So we have 16-18 year old boys with 11-12 year olds and hope they dont hug them too much???
Oh it won’t be hugging going on in those tents, now. I say defund them. The fags won’t support them very long. I wouldnt mind knowing how much money was transferred into some of the council members’ bank accounts by LGBT organizations in the last week though.
i hate democrats
when i was younger i would try to reason with them
just hit them with baseball bats or glocks
Democrats can take anything and make it ugly.
They give cockroaches a bad name.
While I love being a Texan, I hate being an American these days. When is the last straw going to be the last straw?
Next up - changing the name from “Boy” (racist doncha know) to “Homie”. PC run amok - still.
For now. The federal government is now considering silence on the issue of gay pride to be disapproval.
Slippery slope and all that.
2 other states are also trying to adopt this law.
WTH do the Boy Scouts need with money??
A local church offers their basement one night a week for 2 hours to a collection of 30 well-behaved teenage boys supervised by two responsible men, so they can learn clarity in their moral values and plan upcoming camping trips on public or private land.
The boys (or their parents) buy their own uniforms, Boy Scout Handbook, camping gear. Parents drive them to and from the meetings and camp-outs.
If there is anything much more to it than this, anything requiring some expensive bureaucracy, then that’s the problem, and easily solved.
They decided to keep the pedophiles out. For now. That’s some consolation ...
I’m glad to hear that!
I'm not in disagreement there. I was merely pointing out that they probably couldn't get away with a ban on speech such as the language of your post indicated. At least for now.
The people who made and approved these changes to the BSA are the moral equivalents of child molesters. May they all burn in the hottest corners of hell.
This is what happens when you let liberals take over the executive leadership of your organization: Faggotry.
I still have my 1960s BSA Handbook to cling to.
They want to get them while they’re young
That’s the next step.
