Dishonorable Homosexualized Boy Scouts of America Leadership smacks down super-majority of BSA
Holy Souls Hermitage ^ | 5/23/2013 | Fr George David Byers

Posted on 05/23/2013 5:26:00 PM PDT by markomalley

BSA-googled image
This is now a total farce, blasphemy, actually. A lie. Dishonorable. Immoral.

When I was a kid, holding up one’s hand and saying “on my honor” was the thing to do.

Did the vote result the way it did by dishonorable means?

Since a secret ballot is against BSA policy, the vote is invalid.

The entire executive committee should be thrown out.

But none of that’s going to happen, unless the executive committee is brought to court.

Who will do that?

Certainly not the Mormon leadership, who wanted to homosexualize the BSA.

Perhaps the Baptists?

I think that the Catholic crowd ought best to start local gatherings of the Catholic Scouts.

For a ferocious, precise fisking of the policy:

Fisking the BSA Boy Scouts of America Homosexualist Agenda: Liars!

Now watch for draconian expulsion of all those who do not uphold the new policy.

It reminds me of what I think happened with Obama’s election, and what he is doing with the presidency now.

The BSA is no longer the Boy Scouts of America.

It’s America scouting for boys.

They are already talking about homosexualizing the leadership.

You know, the BSA is now like the Rainbow Sash crowd. If any Rainbow Sash crowd or any Boy Scouts showed up for Holy Communion, I would not administer Holy Communion to them, for they are swearing to uphold the homosexualized Boy Scout Law, which is now about celebrating how great homosexuality is, against the natural law, the teaching of Scripture and the Church. The BSA has made itself enemies of the Church.

Not having a private vote was definitely a ploy to affect the outcome.

What's next is the destruction of the Boy Scouts of America.
Many will withdraw their children and their support for ANY organization that supports homosexuals.

Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

Anyone taking odds on how soon the first lawsuit is filed on behalf of one of the newly admitted homosexual boy scouts alleging mistreatment. And asking for, and very likely getting, a SUBSTANTIAL financial settlement. This will happen as surely as night follows day.

BSA will regret this decision.

Ironically the royalties to the song God Bless America funds both the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts.

According to US News & World Reports, the God Bless America Foundation was going to withhold money from the Boy Scouts unless they included homosexuals in the organization.

Time for a new song.

I agree. CSA sounds pretty good.

The Baptists have a good girls’ program called AWANA.

No. DeMolay is a Masonic organization. Catholics have the Columbian Squires (Knights of Columbus) and and the Blue Knights.

please provide an explanation for this most serious charge. as i recall, mormons aren’t the only denomination to have homosexuals amongst their members or clergy. i’ve never heard any of my mormon friends promoting a homosexual lifestyle: quite the contrary.

Why would mothers and fathers encourage their sons to camp out with homosexuals? Remember, too, that the younger scouts almost always have tremendous admiration for the older ones. I see big trouble ahead.

Incredible. I hope they have to fold up now that sodomites will infiltrate the banquet of young boys. I can’t see any dad wanting his kid to spend a weekend with a sodomite boy scout or a leader.

They can all go to hell.

Withhold money? It's apparent what god they serve? For the Great I am says..."No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."

the God Bless America Foundation appears to be going around seeing how many souls it can buy.

Romney LOST.

It was exactly this sort of crap that lost the election for him.

He LOST.

Why in the world would we want anything from Romney?

Turn the other direction, for crying out loud.

I just sent an email to the BSA leadership castigating them for their sick and perverted decision to join the evil legions of political correctness and telling them they will never receive another cent from me.

Of course, even though this will result in a massive decrease in donation income, in a year or two, their new queer masters will put out a news release announcing the transition has been highly successful, and that the BSA is prepared to move on to the next phase.... Allowing queer scoutmasters.

This whole gay agenda/Boy Scout decision puzzles me. I’ve never known a gay person who had the slightest interest in the outdoors. Maybe what we have here is an incremental push toward converting BSA into NAMBLA.

The BSA is no longer the Boy Scouts of America. It’s America scouting for boys.

Kind of a crude way to say it, but the Chicken Hawk Patrol is always looking for young meat.

That is not what the Politically Correct groupies are thinking --- they just want to be 'correct' -- but that will be the net result and the end of the BSA.

The Chicken Hawks will have a feast, for a while, Scouting will die, and we will lose a wonderful institution that has helped millions of kids for the last 100 years to become responsible citizens.

I know my old Scout Master, one of the most wonderful persons I have ever known, is probably be rolling over in his grave right now.

Today is my “rant” day.

I am royally PO’ed about the Boy Scouts selling out.

I did not expect it. All my life the Boy Scouts has been special, and above all the other politics all around.

Today that changed. Today I am royally PO’ed.

And a bit fired up. Tomorrow I will move on.

And the Boy Scouts will begin to really, really shrink.

I will not help them now.

If there is a break in the organization with some retaining the old rules, I may help that group.

Lots of things can happen, and there are quite a lot of people out here today just like me. Moreso, because I am just incidentally impacted anymore.

But today is primarily for ranting.

Sorry you ended up on the receiving end.

The September report posted by the Huffington Post was published in collaboration with The American Independent. It called out Intel, UPS, United Way, Merck and others for contributing to an organization with a stated policy of banning homosexuals from membership.

The report came less than two months after the BSA affirmed its policy at the conclusion of a two-year examination of the issue by a committee of volunteers convened by national BSA leaders.

Along with UPS, Intel cut off its funding to the Scouts after the report. In December, Merck issued a statement saying it could not “continue to provide support to an organization with a policy that is contrary to one of our core beliefs.”

“We remain ready and willing to re-consider our funding position in the event that the BSA were to revise its policy,” the statement said.

The American Interest report said 23 of the top 50 corporate foundations, ranked by the Foundation Center in terms of total charitable giving, gave at least $10,000 each to the Boy Scouts in 2010.

Combined, they donated about $3.6 million.

Meanwhile, two prominent board members – including an adviser to the Obama White House – have stated their intent to change the policy, Randall Stephenson of AT&T, who is next in line to become BSA national chairman, and James Turley of Ernst & Young.

Last June, Turley vowed he “will work from within to seek a change” to the BSA policy.

“As I have done in leading Ernst & Young to being a most inclusive organization, I intend to continue to work from within the BSA board to actively encourage dialogue and sustainable progress,” Turley said.

Stephenson has been praised for publicly opposing the Boy Scouts’ policy and explained he would remain on the board, which he’s in line to lead in 2014, because he could have more influence.

Turley was nominated to President Obama’s Export Council in 2010, and has been a promoter of Obama’s economic policy.

Turley and his wife, Lynne, were guests at a state dinner hosted by President Obama for British Prime Minister David Cameron at the White House last March.

Battle stations

As with previous U.S. presidents going back to President William Howard Taft in 1910, Obama became the honorary president of the BSA shortly after taking office in 2009.

In a Super Bowl pre-game interview Sunday with CBS’s Scott Pelley, Obama affirmed the Boy Scouts should be open to “gays.”

From the LA Times, 25 April 2013:

Mormon Church to Boy Scouts: Gay Scouts proposal OK

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a message for the Boy Scouts of America's plan to allow gay Scouts: We're fine with it.

The Mormon Church, which has historically opposed same-sex marriage, said Thursday that it supported the Scouts' recently proposed rules change that "No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone," as the proposal puts it.

The proposed policy change, announced last week, came after years of wrangling, soul-searching and prodding from advocates, alumni and funders to open the Scouts' ranks to gays.

You were saying?

The leadership of the Boy Scouts of America are now in communion with the fallen angels. Pray for their deliverance from this spiritually and Naturally grievous error, and pray for the innocent souls to prevent their ruin.

God, most certainly, through the Apostle Paul, reminds us that we are not to be in communion with the devil:
1 Corinthians 10:[16] The chalice of benediction, which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? And the bread, which we break, is it not the partaking of the body of the Lord? [17] For we, being many, are one bread, one body, all that partake of one bread. [18] Behold Israel according to the flesh: are not they, that eat of the sacrifices, partakers of the altar? [19] What then? Do I say, that what is offered in sacrifice to idols, is any thing? Or, that the idol is any thing? [20] But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with devils. [21] You cannot drink the chalice of the Lord, and the chalice of devils: you cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord, and of the table of devils.

The way the radicals operate their “long march through the institutions” is to coopt an organization identified with conservatism or ate art the establishment and then take it over from within leaving the trappings of tradition. For example, the university will continue aggressively to promote its football team and photographs of ivy-covered Victorian/Edwardian buildings while teaching students vile anti-western-culture ideology.

Look for the Boy Scouts to show up at White House functions and “liberal” Democrat functions, while traditional conservatives leave the movement.

The Boy Scouts are going to have a very high profile now among progressives looking for symbols to give them greater legitimacy, in my opinion.

As I wrote above, the Boy Scouts will not really shrink, as you wrote. They will become the youth movement of the Progressives because they symbolize tradition in the public eye. Turning the organization into a haven for homosexuals is simply a means to the end of driving away the conservatives who would have prevented the left from coopting the organization. It will flourish as never before, but not in the aces or with the people who populate it today. It will be the Young Pioneers.
