The Boy Scouts of America's stance of not allowing openly gay people to serve as troop leaders or members has inspired several Eagle Scouts to return their hard-earned medals and renounce their membership.

Now they can start their own organization for boys run by openly homosexual males. I am sure the openly homosexual organization will accept all the boys whose parents want them to join.

That is their choice.

The same as the Boy Scouts organization’s on membership.

A few very sad failures dropping out of a wonderful organization. So be it. Better they leave if they harbor such distorted attitudes, lest they harm the new kids coming up through Scouting.

Pray that they learn some basic human values somewhere (it is such a shame they didn’t learn any at home, or in church, or even... in the scouts).

I expected his name to be Kerry.

Was he returning his own medal or someone else's?

Good.
The Scouts should erase all records that these simple faggots ever served as members.

These Eagles have a right to freedom of association.

Of course, so do the Boy Scouts.

We all have the right, or none of us have it.

I wonder how many parents will rush to enroll their boys in the faggot led version these Eagles will perhaps start up?

Why, it will be a virtual stampede. /s

Take pictures of them returning their medals. When they decide to run for public office and claim these awards, pictures of them returning their medals will keep them honest......unless they are democrats which means they’ll just lie about it anyway.

Ironically enough as one of the major qualifications in boy-scouts is your duty to God theses men’s rejection of God’s commandments makes them unworthy of the medal.

I am therefore glad they returned the medals they obviously did not honestly earn.

Well,Mr. Baker,

The Boy Scouts are no more “bigoted” than they’ve ever been. They’re upholding the same standards they’ve held since the Boy Scouts were created. They’re upholding the same standards printed and taught in all their publications and manuals. The same ones you read as you made your journey through Scouting.

They’re no more “bigoted” today than when you came up through the ranks of the Scouts.

They’re no more “bigoted” today than when you got your First Class badge.

They’re no more “bigoted” today than when you earned your Eagle Scout badge.

The only thing that has changed is “You.” Have a nice life...

I breaks my heart to see the BSA embroiled in this controversy. We raised three Eagle Scouts, who worked so hard for their awards, I can't imagine them ever giving them up.

Boy Scout Oath

On my honor, I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Seems like a good motto to me. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

First, congratulations on raising some fine young men.
Second, I wouldn't take this crap story seriously. From the story:

...has inspired several Eagle Scouts to return their...

"Several".... This means maybe "three".

Three out of several hundred thousand living Eagle Scouts - - an infinitesimally small handful - - made a big, self-promoting stink. This is obviously a controversy orchestrated by a few activist Democrat parents. How else would the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms get copies of those letter? The rat faggot parents probably spammed every newsroom in the world knowing many of them would be eager to bite, and do their thing to promote the radical homosexual agenda. And naturally, the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms got right on it.

This homo Scout Leader issue was studied for two years by the BSA (including several women on the study panel) and the decision was made. The Boy Scouts do not want homosexuals taking little boys off into the woods. That decision sounded final, and even if it isn't, the issue will not be revisited in earnest for a long, long time.

FRegards,
LH

My key chain medal is a remnant from 1962 Cub Scouts: “I promise to do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to be square, and to obey the Law of the Pack.”

Exactly.

As do most all of our elected representatives, they either lied or don't understand what an oath is.

As an Eagle Scout myself, I would just as soon the BSA revoke _all_ these political puppets’ Scout awards and deny them access to Scouting benefits for misrepresenting themselves.

The Scout Law:
A Scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.

Inconvenient for most, but words mean things. An oath _should_ be binding and one should expect consequences from breaking their oath. (Especially for those in positions of trust and responsibility.)

This Eagle Scout recognizes that our Boy Scout creed has been unchanged for 100 years.

And it certainly won’t change because the secular leaders of our collapsing society no longer call perverts “perverts”.

Yeah, with Jerry Sandusky as their spiritual leader, they can earn their Gerbil Scout rank by conducting overnight field trips to a prison and experiencing the action first-hand.

Then it might dawn on them what the REAL scouts meant about being morally straight.

One wonders how Christopher Baker managed to refrain from putting the title "Princess" in front of his name? Kinda hung up on titles. He's going to regret the little hissy-fit that made him give up "Eagle Scout".

Great point and one that is nearly alwasy missed. Imagine if the BSA wouldn’t let them leave. The Freedom of Association must be reclaimed.

Start your own organizations and have all the “openly homosexual” leaders you want.

Isnt it weird that the same people that are comfortable with gay scout leaders would never imagine a girl scout troop with a single 30 year old man as the head?

Would you let that man take a group of little girls on a camping trip? If not, why would you let a gay man take a group of little boys?

I read somewhere that a maximum of 2% of our population might, I repeat, might have homo tendencies.

How does 2% of a population raise so much fuss that they are granted a special privilege and protection requiring that the rest of us, 98% of our population, fall in line behind them.

To hear the media tell it, a body would think that every other person they met was gay. Our Republic is lost. I am grateful that I am now old and some of my health issues will no doubt take me soon.

We had gay people around when I was young, though not many. We all knew who they were, they kept to themselves and we left them alone. What happened?

Just reading:
“In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that whis is right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25)[the last verse in the book of Judges]

“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking head thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought Thee: oh let me not wander from Thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” (Psalm 119:9-11)

Uh huh.

The hypocrisy of the left is indeed breathtaking. The Boy Scouts are protecting their members from sexual predators, exactly what the libs are only too happy to criticize the Catholics and Penn State for failing to do.
Of course, I suppose we could all be stupid enough to believe the nonsense that those gay troop leaders are not there to find victims and recruits.

So, hey lefties, here’s the truth: gay men want to be scout leaders for the purposes of preying on the boys exactly the same way the priests and Sandusky did. Scout leadership is working hard to prevent that. They should be applauded, not criticzed. Deal with reality.

“Anybody who puts MBA after their name is a dork.”

I’d imagine it was to lend weight to his protest; all it did was show the disconnect between the “educated elite” and the average Joes that make this country work (including the reproducing side of that). This idiot probably hasn’t had a Christian thought since the day he left for college...
