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.
>>”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”
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.
You would think he has more pressing issues.
"The Man-Boy Camping Club of America"
Then let the market decide.
At least, that was the way it was supposed to be until the B.S.A. announced their compromise. Show me a boy who has to declare the he is "openly gay" and I'll show you one who cannot possibly keep the morally straight part of the scout oath.
B.S.A. needs to decide now if the scout oath is more important that Holder's perverted view of equality. It should be patently apparent by now that there is no room for compromise.
So you homosexuals and homosexual advocates have two options:
1. You keep it to yourselves and we leave you alone.
2. We make you leave us alone.
With all the horrific problems in this country, are we going to continue to let them steer the conversation to gays and race? Time to fight back, publish all of Holder’s anti-American antics, ask him why he’s focusing on the beliefs of a private group when the country’s going to hell in a handbasket.
This administration is pathetic
That oligarch’s boy Eric Holder, doing what he’s been told to do, destroy any vestige of the societal taboos which made America great. Morality is a hindrance to the globalist’s degeneracy.
This shows the utter foolishness of trying to accomdate the left. Nothing but complete capitulation is enough. The BSA though they’d take a “cut the baby in half” compromise to preserve their corporate funding and all they accomplished was to turn EVERYONE against them.
C’mon Holder....pick on someone you’re own size....
Holder: Poster man for NAMBLA!
Another once-great American institution is sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.
They will force it to accept gay scoutmasters, and no sensible parent will let their sons join.
One nation, indivisible, with faggotry and sodomy for all.
It is downright criminal that this cretin already hasn't been thrown the hell out of office (like his boss, but that's another issue)
I thought you all negros were against homosexuality, least that’s the crappola pushed by obammy and you all’s religious jargon.
Guess that’s a load of hooey.
Anything and I mean anything to take the eyes off of what this CRIMINAL administration is doing or has done.
Not that I give a crap about the BSA any longer, they destroyed themselves from within and willingly so.
Trail Life USA, not as big but based on solid Christian principles is the way to go for any true Conservatives out there.
Their poll numbers are going down so they have to get their base in a tizzy.
Get ready for more war on women crap to surface.
Parents just do not want ScoutMasters diddling the boys in their charge.
The perverted left has mainstreamed homosexuality now the next step to pedophilia has started with the Obama administration.
House, start impeachment proceedings against Holder. It will never pass the Senate or King Obama, but the hearings will expose Holder as a communists criminal.
I hate the stereotype that men who are attracted to males are a greater risk to teenage boys than men who are attracted to women and not to other males. I can’t imagine how that belief became so prevalent (except that the only males who molest boys are males who are attracted to other males, but other than that, there is no evidence at all for this belief).
This former Scout is disappointed with the BSA’s actions over the past year, but Holder really needs to stop embarrassing himself like this.

Well dumb ass most parents do not want perverts around their childrem
Parents are aware that queers die an average of 15 years earlier than do normal, heterosexuals.
Being normal parents, they will not take any avoidable risk that their children might be seduced by a queer. If that is discrimination, the normal are all for it.
Live with it, Eric.
Or will he let his daughter sleep in the same tent as a heterosexual male?
Yes, as if Holder and Obama are doing their part to put to rest the stereotype of the stupid black man.
Eric Holder, is an evil terrorist who should be tried for high crimes and treason. This savage should be rotting in a prison cell.He is a closet queer..I think him and B.O.have something going in that oval office..He is so bound and determined to have our children taught by the queer scout men..
