And so it goes. Goodbye BSA—you were good for awhile.
good. i wish conservatives could get their act together for a third party as quickly.
I'll send them money.
I hope this new organization forms soon.
The only bummer is all the property the queers get to keep. Wonder if the feds will try and bar them from using national forests based on their values. Maybe some large donors will get together and buy a Philmont replacement.
It would be nice to get some alignment with Promise Keepers.
The homosexuals destroyed the Boy Scouts. Let’s see what else the homosexuals will wreck, besides each other’s lives.
You have a good memory.
5/28/1993 - Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt reinstated a National Park Service order prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the Service's Western Region. Under the order, BSA members could have been barred from volunteering in the National Parks. Subsequent public outrage over the Secretary's decision ensured that BSA members would not be barred from National Parks.
The speed of this is impressive. First meeting two weeks ago, nationwide launch by the end of the year. That’s really something. I’m sure God’s blessing will help.
Now we need something like this in the political sphere with the likes of Ted Cruz, Allen West and Sarah Palin leading the charge.
All the groundwork they have laid over the last 50 years is paying off for them.
Sounds just great!
It is one thing to recognize that some boys will exhibit homosexual interests, and to make sure they are welcome and not hurt or discriminated against as they work out their maturation. It is altogether another thing to officially approve of the “gay lifestyle” and invite it to be practiced or paraded openly by said youngsters, and by them to all the other boys in Scouting.
The idea of Scouting is to help boys grow up successfully, not to mis-lead them into dysfunctional lifestyles (which, admittedly, a few will still choose... but Scouting should not be seen as a facilitator or enabler of such a choice).
Thanks for the ping! This sounds good. Hope it succeeds as proposed!
Man, this is good to hear. I raised my share of hell in scouts, but I can’t begin to count the ways in which it influenced me in a positive way, despite my attempts at the time to screw around.
And maybe that’s the point. Few who enter as a Cub Scout will become an Eagle, but I would argue that every single boy will come out better than he would have if he hadn’t had the positive influence of the old traditional Boy Scouts. Whether you call it osmosis or just good role modeling, it worked for many years, and I’m delighted that some of these new organizations are picking up that mantel.
This article is worth an interim ping to the entire list. Any of you who are or were in BSA leadership, take note, investigate, and see if you can work with this group.
But then I saw it was a new organization...if they adhere to this mission statement and stand by their guns, I will support them.
nothing sexual should be allowed at all
