The FIRST time a child is molested as a result of this ban being lifted, everyone who signed off on this should be held legally and financially responsible.
Disappointment, hell outrage.
The Boy Scouts was one of the only charities that I support, if this passes, they are off my list.
Starve the beast!
Allowing homos in BS = end of Boy Scouts
Girl Scouts are on the same trajectory...threw out mention of God awhile back and are now in bed with Planned Parenthood = no more cookies!
If they do this...no more popcorn. Don’t bother asking us for money, it will NOT be forthcoming.
There's been pressure from gay lobbies to crack the wall of protecting young boys from homosexual indoctrination and exploitation. Apparently they received sympathetic support from these companies for some reason. Well, there are a LOT more heterosexual parents then gay men and we ought to be able to fight back. I've already told the BSA that I'll quit volunteering, pull my son, and dissuade others from participating since the BSA favors PC over safety and morality.
“On my honor... I promise to keep myself, physically strong, mentally awake and MORALLY STRAIGHT.
Please don’t do it.
What ever happened to “Don’t ask don’t tell”?
With so many troops being organized by and supported by churches, these troops will continue on as they were, he explained.
No they won't. There will be a massive withdrawal from the BSA by churches and individuals. It will be the death of the BSA as we know it.
I hope this is just a way for the board to bring attention to why they must downsize the organization, and find other means of financing the organization.
Although you and I contend over other matters, in this I am with you. As Paul points out, homosexuality is a clear statement of rebellion against God’s fashioning of our bodies. There is simply no way to be a practicing “gay” (misnomer) and properly represent life to boys, certainly not the Gospel. The nation is perhaps experiencing the “deluding influence” (IIThess. 2:11) sent by God as the curtain falls.
There is an agenda at work here...WHO are the members on the Board of Directors that are pushing this? We need NAMES. This can be fought; this can be defeated.
“On my honor” used to mean something - and financial pressure should not be enough to change that.
My Letter to the Southern Arizona Catalina Council:
Subject: Scouting is By and For People Who Love Scouting
As a Scout Parent I have volunteered thousands hours as a Den Leader, Asst. Leader, and as a Volunteer Parent helping the Troop on activities from camp-outs to Spit and Slurps. I also give money regularly through the “Friends of Scouting”. I am a typical Scout Parent. In my Troop alone there are Scouting Parents and Scouting Adults who no longer have kids in Scouting, who volunteer hundreds of times the hours that I have given, all for the love and joy of Scouting.
If the BSA keeps it current policies it may lose some corporate money but the BSA will survive. If the BSA bows to outside pressure groups and allows homosexual leaders, my family, and many other Scouting families, will withdraw volunteer support as well as monetary support from the BSA. Many BSA troops are hosted, as my Troop is, by Churches of every religion, Mormon, Methodist, etc. Should the BSA allow gay leaders, those Churches who host Troops would soon likely let their charters lapse and Troops would be forced to find new homes or disband.
The BSA will never survive a blow like that. No amount of corporate promises could ever take the place of those volunteers and church sponsors. The BSA was not and is not meant to be a corporate run entity. Scouting runs, as we all know, on the generosity of people who LOVE SCOUTING, and cannot survive by the hand of those who despise the BSA’s adherence to GODs Law.
Once the BSA is abandoned by parents and sponsors, the outside pressure groups who forced the new policy would not be able to or even willing to make up the short fall in BSA volunteers. They would abandon the BSA as quickly as the Scouting Parents and the BSA would likely cease to exist.
I hope and pray, while outside groups still allow Scouts to pray, that the BSA will make the right choice.
Yours In Scouting,

Intel, Merck and UPS should not give money to the BSA with strings attached nor should the BSA take money from companies that accept and encourage deviant behavior. These companies are a mouth piece for our progressive government because the gay political agenda is associated with government contracts and Obamacare. The subterfuge that is occurring within the US Government and its culture of mendacity is disgusting. The Obama administration and Democrats love to destroy conservative icons because they don’t want children taught conservative values and they hate Christianity.
I disagree with above statement completely. No Church is going to want to be liable for any sort of molestation incident that WILL occur by letting in active deviants into this organization. The Boy Scouts are asking for trouble if they go through with this decision.
Where is the outrage on talk radio? Has anyone nationally even brought this up? Our champions are silent mice. I have a seven year in scouting and well i want him out.
The Boy Scouts are now out of their text in the Scout Oath and Law.
No participation by my children, grandchildren or me, ever again.
Goodbye to a once great organization.
