Skip to comments.Attorney General Eric Holder blasts Boy Scouts for anti-gay discrimination
Posted on 06/11/2014 8:43:49 AM PDT by NCjim
WASHINGTON Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America perpetuates the worst stereotypes by barring gay people from becoming Scout leaders.
The continuation of a policy that discriminates against gay adult leaders by an iconic American institution only preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes, Holder said in a speech to the gay civil rights group Lambda Legal in Washington.
Holder did not announce any legal action against the Boy Scouts. A Supreme Court decision 14 years ago said the Scouts, as a private entity, had a right to discriminate against gays.
Last year the Irving, Texas-based organization softened its policy toward gays in a compromise move. After initially saying it intended to allow gays to serve as both Scouts and Scout leaders, it instead allowed openly gay boys to participate in Scouting but continued to prohibit those 18 and older from serving as leaders.
In an approach similar to the dont ask dont tell arrangement in place in the U.S. military until three years ago, the group has said it will dismiss gay leaders only if they publicly announce their sexual orientation.

They sure are out to destroy this organization. Was a great one too.
Eric Holder is an insect that needs stepping on.
can’t have organizations with those values in a democrat paradise.

Behind all stereotypes is a truth. Gays are sexually attracted to men, and frequently to young men. Holder, you are arguing for the potential rape of young men and boys to satisfy your false ideas about equality.
They might as well. Conservatives aren’t coming back whatever
Why sure, because there certainly aren't any real problems to focus on in this country.
Had the BSA remained steadfast in their tradition “morally straight” policy, they would have found a new generation of enthusiastic supporters.
We don’t need or want perverts around our young men Eric.
That is all.
I can see where protecting children from pedophiles would offend Holder and his boss.
Oh I know, they’re not pedophiles, ‘cause they say they’re not.
Go back to running guns Holder, and protecting black panthers at election polls. Stay away from clean, honest American boys who have yet to be corrupted by the likes of you.
Dear Mr. Holder - Does the Center for Disease Control discriminate against sodomites as well? Because they are saying that the lifestyle of homosexuals is deadly! Get back to us with that answer soon.
While you are at it Mr. Holder could you please check with the local blood bank? Do the blood banks of America and around the world "discriminate" against the sodomites in our society? If so could you possibly tell us why they can "discriminate" against sodomites but the Boy Scouts of America cannot?
People need to FOCUS LIKE A LASER on these points to these radical leftists that are hellbent on destroying our Republic. They are evil and need to be smacked in the head with the truth about sodomy! It is a diseased lifestyle.
We can expect much more of this over the next 2 years
Obama will face even more opposition in Congress, and knowing his personality and politics, his attitude will be “screw it - I’ve got nothing to lose.” He will not moderate to help other Democrats nor does he care about the long-term effects on the USA.
Expect the rhetoric, extreme politics and questionable/illegal Presidential orders to become more numerous and more extreme.
The 1st amendment protects US citizens right to peacefully assemble. That also encompass the right TO NOT ASSEMBLE. But hey, since when has this administration listened to the constitution.
Leaders have followers
The enemy has been co-opting our language long enough.
NO FAGGOT IS A LEADER !!!
Please someone in the District of Corruption, anyone - IMPEACH this crook and TERRORIST Defender.
