After a span of more than half a century of supporting the Boy Scouts of America, I find it distressing and repulsive that Gates would be selected as the leader of the BSA.
To me, the BSA is beyond its high water mark and on the way out because the BSA has compromised its integrity at the very top.
I do not know how long it will take, but the original physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight boy scout is GONE, thanks to the spineless and corrupt leadership.
I am aware that the justification for the change was considered necessary given the support in the military for accepting homosexual behavior, and the danger of loss of support by the military and commercial interests that provide funds and access to millions of dollars of facilities. Nonetheless it was a corrupt decision that has doomed the original Boy Scouts of America.
“I am aware that the justification for the change was considered necessary given the support in the military for accepting homosexual behavior”.
You can bet your bottom dollar that the senior leadership of the US Armed Forces didn’t want to lift DADT. They caved to the pressure of the muslim-in-chief. He basically said agree or be fired. They put their careers over the common good of the US military. Every study that has ever been conducted about homosexuality in the Armed Forces said it was not conducive to good order and discipline and for over 200 years that sound policy never changed. The nothing-in-chief is elected president and he could have cared less what was good for the military. He has never served day in the service of his country and is clueless. Like all good leftists he hates the military. He is all about social change and nothing else. The senior officers who allowed the hostile sodomite takeover of the US Armed Forces (then women in combat) put their careers over the the military. All are traitors to their country, starting with the dunce at the top.
