Skip to comments.Eric Holder: If Gay Adults Are Fit for Military Service, They Are Fit to Lead Boy Scouts
Posted on 06/13/2014 1:21:44 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Attorney General of the United States told a homosexual advocacy group on Tuesday night that the Boy Scouts of America "preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes" by refusing to allow homosexuals to serve as Boy Scout troop leaders.
"Today, courageous lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals routinely put their lives on the line as members of America's armed services," Holder told Lambda Legal Tuesday night. "And if these men and women are fit for military service, then surely they are fit to mentor, to teach, and to serve as role models for the leaders of future generations."
In June 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 54 ruling, said the Boy Scouts had a constitutional right, as a private organization, to exclude homosexuals from leadership positions.
Almost nine years later, President Obama came into office, pledging to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. In December 2010, he signed a bill passed by the Democrat-majority Congress repealing the ban on homosexual men and women serving openly in the armed services.
Holder received a warm reception Tuesday night at the Lambda Legal reception, where he promised that the fight for civil rights and "LGBT equality" remains a "top priority," not only for the Justice Department, but "for me personally."

Holder is an IDIOT!
They’re fit for neither, you hack!
It ain’t up to you Eric the Red!
Do these people ever stop talking or thinking about sodomy?
This is why I reluctantly pulled my support for the BSA when the leadership caved to the gay lobby the first time, allowing gay scouts. It’s a slippery slope.
Little boys can’t defend themselves against rape, douchebag!
“Do these people ever stop talking or thinking about sodomy?”
It would seem not...
Who says they are fit for military service?
Its been done merely via bureaucratic fiat. Big deal. time will prove otherwise.
Gerbil face is a moe-ron!!
I was wondering the same thing.
Legitimizing sodomy in every aspect of daily life is key a wedge to fundamentally transform America.
So, I guess it would be OK for, say, a studly male coach to take 15-16 year old cheerleaders out in the woods alone for a weekend.
You know, so there’s no double standard.
I wonder if Eric Holder would be in favor of Men taking teen & pre-teen Girl Scouts on camping trips as troop leaders?
I think members of the Texas Bikini Team would be more appropriate scout leaders.
Having once been a 13 year old boy, I know which one I would have preferred...
That picture is just creepy...
Our PINO seems to be down with that....
Is the idiot back to selling something he likes himself or selling something he hasn't tried yet?
Either way that's a big IF.
The analogy is correct - he just has it backwards
Satan is delighted with Democrats doing his work for them.
Truly, we are Lost in Zombieland.
They are not fit for either.
HOMOSEXUAL, because there's nothing GAY about it.
Obama took our HOPE and spent our CHANGE.
ok then. they’re not fit for active duty.
Apples = oranges, if I say so.
Holder is a TRAITOR!
Exactly. HOMOSEXUAL, because there's nothing GAY about it.
I know a Boy Scout leader from another area that told me one of their older scouts raped one of the younger scouts at camp.
They “handled it” meaning kept it out of the media, and even kept it from the scouting leadership. The boy essentially got away with it; no legal repercussions.
Homosexuals look at scouting as fertile ground for recruiting adolescent boys into their lifestyle. And many of them don’t want to wait for these boys they recruited to reach the age of consent (even the concept makes me want to puke just thinking of a young man “consenting” to sodomy).
If Gay Adults Are Fit for Military Service, They Are Fit to Lead Boy Scouts
Otherwise stated, if the logic holds:
If Hetrosexual men are fit for Military Service, they are Fit to Lead the Campfire Girls.
Hey Stedman, STFU you clueless @-hole.
Only to a liberal are mentally ill sexual deviants fit for military service.
Exactly. As you probably know, there's a liberal campaign on now to eliminate the word "homosexual" from the lexicon, and instead use "gay". Because, these strategists surmise, the word "gay" doesn't invite imagery of what homosexuals do to each other.
Which is exactly why we must ALWAYS use the term 'homosexual' over 'gay'.
Both a non-sequitor and circular reasoning.
They must think we are stupid.
It’s their second sacrament.
Its a private group. What next will Holder insist all Christian churches to have homosexual ministers?
It’s a lesser evil. You know...those evil purists are just supporting Obama and stuff. Thank God we sent moderates back to DC. Imagine the hell some problematic guy with principle might cause for Eric. Opposing things like this. That’s no way to get along. /s
I wasn’t very reluctant. Our entire troop changed to Trail Life USA. Earlier this week we spent several days recruiting others to the new organization.
A sick idiot.
No they are not and Holder you are a piece of trash.
Was he speaking to LAMBDA or NAMBLA???
It makes me want to puke.
> Little boys cant defend themselves against rape, douchebag!
That’s the homo’s wet dream. To be a Boy Scout troop leader and live out their twisted fantasies of raping little boys out in the middle of the woods in tents far removed from their parents.
The boy-scouts are not a military organization, they are a Religiously guided Boy’s organization designed to instill moral values.
Having been a boy-scout I can tell you I would not share a tent with an openly Gay scout, nor would I be comfortable Going on a camping trip with a Gay scout master.
Open and unrepentant sinners are not suited to teach moral values.
Holder gets away with this crap because gutless cowards refuse to stop him.
WE put those gutless cowards there and if we do it AGAIN, the rapes will be on our hands. There is no excuse.
“Gerbil face is a moe-ron!!”
The Butcher of Waco has never struck me as anything other than cold, cunning and calculating, hardly the characteristics of a moron.
Even IF your initial assertion is correct, you are comparing Apples to Oranges, Mr. Holder.
The Boy scouts are a private organization. The military is not.
They were declared “fit” only by law. Some laws are absurd, turning truth itself upside down. I recommend we all obey the law but keep private matters PRIVATE.
“Holder is an IDIOT!”
Well having no moral values of his own holder obliviously doesn’t know or remember the first thing about the Boy Scouts.
You don’t pick open and unrepentant sinners to teach moral values to impressionable young boys.
I don’t care whether they risk their lives in their own sodomite bedchamber or on some battle field.
