Eric Holder: If Gay Adults Are Fit for Military Service, They Are Fit to Lead Boy Scouts
CNS News ^ | 06/13/2014 | Susan Jones

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 5–4 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."

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.

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 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...

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.

They are not fit for either.

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).

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'.

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.

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.
