That's the official position of the BSA right now, "has no plans to change...".
How long do you think that will last given the very public statements from its National Executive Board members?

"We are at a tipping point, with national leaders within the Boy Scouts now taking a firm stand to help end discrimination," Tyrrell said in response to Turley's statement. She called on another prominent Boy Scout executive board member, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, to join Turley in speaking out against the Scouts' anti-gay policy. Like Ernst & Young, AT&T has been commended by gay-rights groups for gay-friendly employment policies "The last thing AT&T wants is to undermine its excellent reputation for supporting LGBT people by failing to support a resolution that would bring equality to the Boy Scouts," Tyrrell said. AT&T issued a statement on Stephenson's behalf, indicating that he too might be interested in working internally to reconsider the membership policy.


First it was one Exec Board member, now two... I would prefer something a little stronger than "has no plans to". In fact, I would prefer to see Executive Board members who actually share the real values of the BSA, and those that don't shown the door or voted out. The homosexuals now have the wedge they need. Incrementalism...

We see the powerful gay activist not just putting pressure on businesses, organizations, even churches, but also threatening individuals. People are compromising their values out of fear. Hopefully the Boy Scout will live up to their motto and not waiver. God forbid it is changed, it will be board members who give in.

If you look around here, many conservatives are compromising on this very issue on FR. Romney just said gays should be allowed to adopt. He also promised the Log Cabin republicans he would get gay marriage enacted in this country as president. While governor of MA he also forced 5 yr olds to be indoctrinated into the “gay lifestyle” and the parents could not opt out their kids. If you bring this to light, some freepers call you obama lover or say obama is going to destroy this country and we must vote for romney. There is a communist principal that says, if you can put fear in the heart of people, you control them. I refuse to vote for a pro abortion, pro gay......not conservative person out of fear. What will I tell God. “Sorry God, I was more afraid of Obama than You”. There are many who won't vote for romney. Praying for a miracle at the convention.
