Posted on 04/26/2012 11:40:58 AM PDT by DesertRenegade
As support for gay mom and former Boy Scout troop leader Jennifer Tyrrell contines to pour in from across America, it's important to reflect on those who have been saying all along that moms like Jen should be allowed in the Boy Scouts. Including Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who said in a 1994 debate:
I believe that the Boy Scouts of America does a wonderful service for this country. I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.
Romney was a member of Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board at the time. Romney's belief that "all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts," echoes the opinion of over 146,000 People who have joined Jennifer's Change.org action calling on the Boy Scouts of America to end its long history of discrimination against LGBT people. Tyrrell was ousted as scout leader of her 7-year-old sons Boy Scouts troop simply because shes gay.

Man, those poor kids are being used as nothing more than props.
The boy looks like he’d rather be anywhere but there...
Her smug expression tells me all I need to know.
How’s the recovery coming along?
No. Just no. No gay scout leaders, and no Romney for any longer than it takes to get B Hussein out of OUR White House, if Mitt is even of any help with that.
Well, here we go...
I hope, Dear God, I hope this doesn’t link to “rumors,” but rumors spread by former Mormons, of abuse of boys in “Utah”.
Would Romney trust one of his 5 sons with a homosexual scoutmaster? Does the BSA really want to have their own version of the pedophile priests scandal that happened in the RCC?
Virgil Goode Jr.’s sounding like a better Presidential candidate to me all the time.
Still on course for an October orthopedic recovery so the neurosurgeon may then start to do her voodoo. Thanks for asking.
Some Girl Scout leaders are lesbians, too.
Too many. I’m sorry, but I don’t think homosexuals should be around children. Children are very impressionable; some adults are, too.
Some heterosexuals shouldn’t be either.
Children are too precious for them to be put in this environment.
If anything is to be needed, it is to carefully check the potential leaders prior to selection.
Something that just occurred to me is that there are so many illegitimate children or children whose parents are divorced now, that so many boys have no father in the home. Such boys are especially vulnerable to homosexual predators because they are looking for a father type figure, and homosexual predators seek out such boys.
All the more reason to keep the Scouts “morally straight”!
Of course not, but he'd have no trouble trusting yours or mine.
Liberals are like that.
Right. And, I reserve the right not to send any young boys under my concern into the Boy Scouts.
What a shame the Boy (and Girl) Scouts decided to take this path in the first place.
Hmm, that would be an interesting list to keep.
The s*** sandwich known as Romney is like a giant quadruple decker club sandwich by now.
Glad to hear that things are going as well as can be expected.
Must be the same morons.
Writing in Sarah Palin.
That’s four of us. Anyone else?
