Skip to comments.Boy Scouts of America Should Drop ‘to God’ and ‘Morally Straight’ From Oath
Posted on 05/25/2013 3:52:24 AM PDT by NKP_Vet
FPN President Joe Glover issued the following response to todays announcement that the Boy Scouts of America will permit open homosexuality among troop members:
The Boy Scouts of America should drop the phrase to God and morally straight from their oath, since theyve decided to reject His standards of morality. The Bible clearly states homosexuality is a sin against God, and yet the Boy Scouts of America has decided to allow it.

I think this is a huge mistake and will mark the end of the scouts...at least as a major organization. They became something else the moment they do this. Very sad day. I suspect another organization will emerge, one staying true to the Scouts mission.
However, to me - the frothy mouthed statement from the FPN guy was over the top and very legalistic and Phariseeical as well.
“More on the soon to be mass-exodus of young men from the morally corrupt Boy Scouts of America.”
Of course. That is what the Marxist want.
Not to fear, they will reemerge as the “Pioneers”, the Communist version of scouting.
The Boy Scouts will soon disappear.
In many places they are already struggling.
Troops without openly gay scouts may survive for a while, but the first one that comes in will spark an exodus in that troop. It only takes one bad apple to spoil the barrel.
As the BSA descends into a homoerotic meat market, parents at least can know many good church-connected youth organizations are out there to fill the gap, even though the prestige of once-venerable Scouting is off the table.
That said, it’s still very sad BSA has chosen to kneel at Satan’s altar.
So they finally succeeded in turning the Boy Scouts into the Gay Scouts. This will not earn them acceptance. This will hurt gays much more than help them. Where once they were tolerated they are now starting to be despised.
WHEREAS, it is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law:
On my honor I will do my best
A Scout is:
AND WHEREAS, duty to God, duty to country, duty to others, and duty to oneself are each a core value and immutable tenet of the Boy Scouts of America; and
WHEREAS, the Scout Oath begins with duty to God and the Scout Law ends with a Scout's obligation to be reverent, and that will always remain a core value of the Boy Scouts of America, and the values set forth in the Scout Oath and Law are fundamental to the BSA and central to teaching young people to make better choices over their lifetimes; and
WHEREAS, the vision of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Scout Law; and
WHEREAS, for more than 103 years, programs of the Boy Scouts of America have been delivered to youth members through cooperation with chartered organizations that select adult leaders who meet the organization's standards as well as the leadership standards of the Boy Scouts of America; and
WHEREAS, numerous independent experts have recognized that the programs protecting Scouts today, which include effective screening, education and training, and clear policies to protect youth and provide for their privacy, are among the best in the youth-serving community; and
WHEREAS, the current adult leadership standard of the Boy Scouts of America states:
The applicant must possess the moral, educational, and emotional qualities that the Boy Scouts of America deems necessary to afford positive leadership to youth. The applicant must also be the correct age, subscribe to the precepts of the Declaration of Religious Principle (duty to God), and abide by the Scout Oath and the Scout Law.
While the BSA does not proactively inquire about sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.
AND WHEREAS, Scouting is a youth program, and any sexual conduct, whether homosexual or heterosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting; and
WHEREAS, the Boy Scouts of America does not have an agenda on the matter of sexual orientation, and resolving this complex issue is not the role of the organization, nor may any member use Scouting to promote or advance any social or political position or agenda; and
WHEREAS, youth are still developing, learning about themselves and who they are, developing their sense of right and wrong, and understanding their duty to God to live a moral life; and
WHEREAS, America needs Scouting, and the organization's policies must be based on what is in the best interest of its young people, and the organization will work to stay focused on that which unites us, and
WHEREAS, the Boy Scouts of America will maintain the current membership policy for all adult leaders of the Boy Scouts of America, and
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT:
The following membership standard for youth members of the Boy Scouts of America is hereby adopted and approved, effective Jan. 1, 2014:
Youth membership in the Boy Scouts of America is open to all youth who meet the specific membership requirements to join the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Sea Scout, and Venturing programs. Membership in any program of the Boy Scouts of America requires the youth member to (a) subscribe to and abide by the values expressed in the Scout Oath and Scout Law, (b) subscribe to and abide by the precepts of the Declaration of Religious Principle (duty to God), and (c) demonstrate behavior that exemplifies the highest level of good conduct and respect for others and is consistent at all times with the values expressed in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone.
The corporatist takeover of the of the Boy Scouts is complete, a sorry end to a great organization.
While I am 100% against the Scouts doing this, I do not see this as kneeling at Satan’s altar. I think they made a scared, poor decision under pressure - one that will ultimately end their organization. I also do not see them descending into a homoerotic meat market...but I do see other good organizations filling the gap.
Concerned parents and grandparents should do all they can to keep their children from the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts have in effect praised homosexuality. In no time, young boys will be victimized.
Where did the backbone of the American Military and Police Force come from? Answer: The Boy Scouts of America.
But the Boy Scouts are over, they have allowed gays to prey upon them. Our nation will suffer for it.
To Your Tents Oh Israel! To Your Tents!
Exactly. No parent or grandparent should want their boy sodomized. No parent or grandparent can take that risk.
I agree... GOD will turn HIS back on the Scouts now... I already have. Scouting having been one of the finest things that I ever did in my entire life... this greatly saddens me.
They hopefully won’t be required to do so; either the defections will be so huge they’ll change their pro-sodomite policy OR the lack of numbers will bankrupt the organization. Not even corporate poofers will want to throw money to a dying entity.
The way things OUGHT to go, if there were REAL support for homosexuals, would be for a RIVAL organization to form....see how many adherents they get....instead, they infiltrate a well established group and destroy the ideology.
Pro-sodomite forces failed, for instance, to get a significant following when they started their own religion, under the guise of the “Metropolitan Community Church” movement in the 1970s. So what happened? They weaseled into mainstream churches....and began to change THEM. Today, the MCC is still dead, but formerly strong Christian churches are embracing perversion.

Every political act bythe Gaystapo makes the public despise them that much more. They are hated more than ever now and have made it obvious that sexual immorality, power, and control are their objectives. It’s taken over 40 years of continuous TV programming / Hollywood (comedies where they are made to seem harmless and ndoctrination of the children in schools with the concept of false equality, fairness, tolerance ( PC ) and removal of God from the schools to get the low information voters to become sheeple and accepting of the gay lifestyle. While we were distracted by our cushy lifestyle they put gay politicians into office, setup gay activist organizations and laid plans to make pedophelia and the homo lifestyle acceptable. Looks like they’ve succeeded for the moment.
“No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone”
In otherwords drag queens can join. The current PC name
for drag queens is Transgender. These are males that dress up like women, never had a sex change, still have something swiniging between their legs. They are to be treated as perfectly normal and can join the Boy Scouts. When these
drag queens go to the Veterans Hospital for treatment, they are treated with fullest respect and if they happen to go in to the women’s restroom, well no problem. Say a word to them and you are shown the front door. Welcome to the Obama Zone. Where sexual deviancy is not only accepted as normal but praised and gloried.
When I was in Boy Scouts, any form of fornication would have been seen as not morally straight. What’s next a bestiality merit badge?
