DALLAS (Reuters) - As former Defense Secretary Robert Gates is set to head the Boy Scouts of America, many are wondering if the official who helped end the U.S. military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy will also lift the scout's ban on gay adult leaders.
The century-old Texas-based organization kicked off its annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday as questions lingered over its decision last year to allow gay scouts in its ranks but bar them from adult leadership posts.
Gates, a former CIA director, will succeed Boy Scouts President Wayne Perry, who led the group through the emotionally charged debate in May last year when the council voted to lift a ban on openly gay scouts, a decision criticized by both conservatives opposed to the change and gay rights groups for not going far enough.

Boy Scouts becomes Scouting For Boys.
Gates is pro-sodomy and he will soon make condoms mandatory in camp and trips
Hiring Gates was another slap in the face to normal America
He may be participating or condoning in scouting for boys. But, scout parents will be gunning for Gates.
"We shall sodomize your sons...."
From the Gay Revolutionary quoted on the senate floor
It seems that every day now, there is something in the news about homosexuality, or trans-whatevers, or sex change operations.
I would like a day free of hearing about the “LGBT” peoples, and their bitching about what a bigoted society we are.
Not at all the way I used to feel.
As someone posted on an earlier thread about all of this, Romans 1 pretty much sums it up.
The BSA will have to drop the “clean” imperative.
What don’t I understand here? How did Gates get put over the BSOA? Who appoints this position?
How about reverent?
And morally straight.
He used to be an Eagle Scout and he applied for the position. Some actually think he was a good Sec of Defense. When he stayed over as Obama’s secretary anyone should have known he was a left-winger. Any republican-appointed official under Bush should have resigned instead of wanting to work for the Kenyan fraud. Just call Gates the white version of Colin Powell. No integrity whatsover.
Thanks for that info. It helps. But WHO approved his application? Doesn’t this involve all people in the BSOA, families etcetera?
reading he title, ‘hitler youth corps’ was my first thought
The CEO of the Boy Scouts did make 1.5 million dollars a year. Gates came on as the “president”, what he makes I have no idea.
15 He used to be an Eagle Scout and he applied for the position.
He had previously served a term as the president of the National Eagle Scout Association. His brother was an Eagle Scout also.
The volunteer National Executive Committee of the BSA National Council, ~27 business executives, got together and made the decision. They were the ones who overruled the national volunteer survey in 2013 to place the new membership standard, i.e., open homosexual youth, measure on the ballot at the annual business meeting. They were planning in 2012 to install Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T, a supporter of homosexuals in BSA, as the president of the National Council at the business meeting this week. The drama from last year's meeting caused them to shift course, temporarily, and get Gates on board to soothe the ruffled feathers. Stephenson is still on deck to be inducted as president in 2016 when Gates term expires. Acceptance of open homosexual adult leaders will occur during either Gates or Stephenson's watch.
The president of the BSA National Council (the governing body of the BSA) and all ~1,400 members of the National Council are all volunteers. The BSA professionals do not vote at the annual business meeting.
I can’t believe they picked a leftwing, political hack to run the Boy Scouts. It’s “In your face America!” time again.
Yes, if bending over the first time wasn’t enough- there is plenty more coming
The Boy Sodomites of America don’t have to go to hell since they’re already there. How awfully sad that the sodomites infiltrated them and are still unhappy.
Has anyone seen membership numbers for the BSA versus a year ago?
Pulled our son out of Cub Scouts last May. Joined the Royal Rangers in July. My son loves it. A true answer to prayer!
I too would be interested to know what, if any, impact the BSA has suffered since throwing their legacy away.
2/12/2014 BSA Membership Decline
The BSA said that it lost 6 % of its membership after an often-bruising year in which it announced it would accept openly homosexual boys for the 1st time, over the objections of some participants who eventually left the organization.
BSA spokesman Deron Smith said that the 2013 decline could partially be attributed to that change, but also other issues that have caused slight declines in membership over the last decade.
The BSA mouthpiece is spinning like crazy... in an article that says enrollment is down 6% he had this to say [BSA spokesman Deron Smith ] "Last year was a milestone year for the BSA in many ways," he said. He added that accepting openly gay boys "allows us to serve more kids."
It was just like this in the 90s, only about Bill Clinton.
The Jan1, 2015 numbers ought to be interesting——provided that is if the BSA headquarters ( and Gates) can be truthful.
Gates’ first policy change: The name has got to go—”Boy” is too gender exclusive. So, I expect the organization to be renamed to simply “Scouts”.
As such there will be no reason to exclude any “gender” (faggots, surgically altered, sexually confused...) Jamboree will take on a whole new disgusting meaning. The Youth Corps will be in full swing, indoctrinating young nascent homo-fascists openly.
The Civil War that is coming will be about so many things—breakdown of race relations, death policies, government excess, anti-constitutional measures, the effective destruction he rule of law—but chief of which will be the overthrow of the family by the sodomites and their sympathizes. There can be no peaceful co-existence with two such diametrically opposed world views—God’s created order, and man’s perversion of that order. One leads to blessedness, the other to destruction.
It will be an unavoidable defensive conflict, since the corrupt must corrupt all and will not tolerate any who do not celebrate their perversion.
He is an Eagle Scout. The award is not temporary.
However; I am not sure of my status as I asked them to remove me from the Eagle Scout roll and I send back my Eagle badge when they decided to cave on the homosexual issue.

You are correct.

You are still on the roll as an Eagle Scout. The homosexualist Eagle Scouts have been sending their Eagle medals back to Irving/BSA National since before the 2000 SCOTUS 5-4 ruling that BSA is a private organization and can make its own membership rules. The folks at National just put all the returned medals in boxes for storage. No action is taken to go back and purge the rolls. Afterall, there are more than a few Eagle Scout felons out there. They are not going to waste energy purging the rolls.
Eagle Class of 1972
With Gates in charge there is no longer any question which direction the Boy Scouts are taking. They are going down into the sewer with children.
