Shame on those Girl Scout mothers who think 2 gay men represent the best role models to lead their Girl Scout troop. So much for developing female leadership.
.......and no smarty alecky remarks about what kind of merit badges you can earn in that troop either......ya wisenheimes-freepers ya.../s
I recently chastised a young niece of mine, when she so strongly objected to a Christian school’s dismissal of a self-idenitied “gay” teacher. She used terms like “his first amendment rights” and “freedom of speech and thought”, and suggested that what the school did should be considered illegal.
I patiently asked her - what about the “first amendment rights” of the school, to adhere to it’s religious faith and practice. I suggested she back off of her idea that the law should be brought to bear on the case, even if she disagreed wth the school’s policy.
I asked her - if the school did not have a right to it’s opinion, then whose opinions are free from becoming “illegal” just ‘cause enough people say so. She saw my point, agreeing that the school had a legal right to it’s policy.
I just want to remind everyone:
So does the BSA, and guess what, so do private organizations that disagree with the BSA.
We can feel betrayed by our own religious organizations that do not live up to their own standards of faith and practice, and we can and should advocate that our religious leaders not permit such betrayals; as long as, beyond that, we do not wish, hope and desire, a reversal of fortunes and want the law to “enforce” the opinions of the BSA.
We will never get the Liberals out of the use of the law as their most-desired instrument of “social change” and “social values”, if too many of us simply want the shoe on the other foot.
Personally, I am more of a “social” Conservative; when it comes to the law I am more a Libertarian. I believe Jesus intended we make His law our own, personally, and in all our private assosications and priavte institutions, and not pretend we are making secular government His instrument. I believe He disavos such linkage to Him.
The homosexual rights war against BSA is a multi-front campaign.
1. BSA National Executive Board - corporate CEO members who want to internally eliminate BSA’s DADT membership policy.
2. United Way chapters which decrease/deny needed funds to local BSA councils to meet their payrolls.
3. Christian denominations/ churches which charter scout units, but which will soon become problematic for BSA because of the churches acceptance of open homosexual membership/ ordination/civil unions / marriage ...
a. United Church of Christ
b. Episcopal Church
c. Presbyterian Church in the United States of America
d. Evangelical Lutheran Church
e. Disciples of Christ/ Christian Church
f. Alliance of Baptist churches
g. Moravian Church
This article clearly demonstrated the ongoing fight within the Roman Catholic Church on this matter. I confess that I was very surprized, and disappointed, that the local church clergy initially opposed BSA. There are several reports of Roman Catholic clergy attempting to deny open homosexuals the eucharist and admitting children of open homosexual parents into church schools but are later reprimanded by higher-ups in the church when the homosexuals press their case.
So far, the United Methodist Church has withstood the homosexual flood, but it appears to be weakening in its resolve, at least within the USA. The mantra of “social justice” has taken root in many suburban churches. The subject of BSA’s membership policy will very soon be taken up by the American national church’s leadership.
4. “Other” BSA Cub Pack/ Bly Scout troop charter organizations, e.g., in this article it is the Missouri PTA which is threatening to break ties with BSA units. Public elementary and middle schools used to accomodate BSA and permit them the opportunity to hold recruiting events during the evening on school properties. Those days are gone.
5. TV and radio. It was farily common, as late as the 1980s for PSAs to be broadcast which supported Scouting. Those days are gone.
6. The Girl Scouts of America have definitely embraced “total inclusion/ diversity” and appears to be becoming an open adversary of the BSA. Others here have had more experience with GSA. My understanding is that adult males can assist unit operations but only in the background and at a distance. Most everyone seems to grasp the wisdom of keeping the adult males away from the girls - yet many cannot see this same understanding applied to open homosexuals - male or female.

As so many biblically literate Christians have pointed out, all sin has to be opposed but in a loving manner. This is a tough stand to take in these extremely permissive and bibilcally illiterate times. Also, the homosexualist opposition has been applying Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” since the 1969 Stonewall Riots to (1) isolate, (2) ridicule, and (3) demonize orthodox Christians.
They know that no-fault divorce since ~ 1970 has severly weakened the church’s moral standing because if preachers preached against divorce, their pews would empty, i.e., how can the church preach against the bad behavior of 2.8% of the population (homosexuals) when ~50% of the marriages conducted in churches fail and end in divorce?
There is a biblical method to address sin:(1) call attention (identify) to the sin (again, in a loving manner), (2) ask for repentance, (3) personal behavior reform (including education/counselling) to avoid the sin from now on till you die, and finally (4) the isolation/shunning (”tough love”) of unrepenant sinners who are harming themselves and those around them.
Society is truly unraveling, and becoming irreparably polarized. These degenerates will never stop until they invade every conservative institution to destroy it, and conservatives must continue to stand firm in order to remain conservatives.
There is no way around a civil war, a bloody one.
It is no real news about the GSA, though. They have been supporting atheistic secularism for decades now.
Of course there is going to be push-back on this, true Christians are few and far between these days.
This man, living with another man for thirty years in sexual deviancy, is no position to guide the character development of youth. This would be like putting a sex addict as their leader and one whose sexual preferences have a history towards pedophilia.
The sad part about this is that these two males are raising their two children to believe this deviant behavior is to be promoted when, the truth is that, it is a behavior that is not only immoral but a rather severe disorder and nothing that should be encouraged nor accepted in the public sphere.
First of all, it isn't a "don't ask, don't tell" policy. The policy clearly states a homosexual cannot be a scout leader.
Second of all, if you are "uncomfortable with it" then quit being a scout leader. They don't want you anyway, so both parties will be happier.
