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
