Posted on 04/08/2014 3:54:27 AM PDT by markomalley
New survey numbers from Rasmussen show public opinion turning slowly against the Boy Scouts. Though most Americans still view them favorably, their numbers continue in a perennial trend of decline.
The national poll taken by telephone shows 59% of Americans still view the Boy Scouts at least "somewhat" favorably, this represents a decline of six percentage points from last May and a 14 point decline from February, 2012. Twenty-eight percent view the Boy Scouts unfavorably.

Is this because they rolled over for the gay mafia or because people no longer believe in their “be morally straight” credo?
The whimpering death of an American cultural right of passage for generations of boys.
When I see stuff like this, I really feel like I no longer live on planet Earth.
Seems every day gets worse.
I used to donate to the Boy Scouts. Not any more, not since they started caving.
It's the same exact thing.
Instead of remaining the Boy Scouts of America they chose to become the boy sodomites of America.
There is no way to equate promoting sexual perversion with being morally straight
There are no 11 year old or 13 year old queers.
I thought accepting gay children(wth did I just type) was supposed to greatly increase participation.
We are letting Satan destroy every bastion of what is good and Holy.
It is not simply the tearing down of what is good.
It is the complete transformation to the promotion and endorsement of evil.
Ya mean to say that caving into the mores of the “gay” crowd DOES NOT getcha wealth, fave, respect and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$?
Whooda thunk it. The NYT loves ya, though.
Quite frankly, who wants their sons or grandsons being in the company of homosexuals?
Thats well more than half of today's 41% unfavorable rating.
As a partner in a large law firm, I was confronted by a surprising number of other lawyers about the BSA's anti-homosexual policy and alleged militarism in the early 1990s.
The 41% unfavorable rating doesn't come entirely from rolling over for the gay mafia. I'd guess less than half of it does.
This will change when we get another Boy Scout president, or at least someone favorable to the Scouts who has the sae beliefs, ideals and goals as the Scouts.
The loss of support is purely from the traditional base. The gays will never support them despite the caving. So in end, they give in and lose even more support. Just like a rino. They appease the media and lefties who in the end will never be on their side. Good going.
“Follow Me Boys”, starring Fred MacMurray, is a reminder of the value Boy Scouts had to a town - get the boys off the streets and occupy their time learning valuable life skills — including citizenship.
