Mitt Romney Comes Out in Support of Homosexual Boy Scout Leaders, Members
Christian News ^ | August 6, 2012 | Heather Clark

Posted on 08/07/2012 6:36:10 AM PDT by xzins

A spokesperson for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has advised that the former Massachusetts governor disagrees with the Boy Scout’s current policy prohibiting open homosexuals from serving as members and leaders.

According to The Associated Press, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the news outlet in an email that Romney still stands by his beliefs that homosexual men should be able to serve in the organization. She specifically noted that Romney had outlined his views in 1994 during a political debate, and that his stance has not changed.

“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” Romney stated during the debate. “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

As previously reported, last month, the Boy Scouts of America issued a statement reaffirming its policy prohibiting open homosexuals from joining the organization.

“The committee’s work and conclusion is that this policy reflects the beliefs and perspectives of the BSA’s members, thereby allowing Scouting to remain focused on its mission and the work it is doing to serve more youth,” the statement said. “The review included forthright and candid conversation and extensive research and evaluations — both from within Scouting and from outside of the organization.”

The decision to reiterate and reaffirm the Scout’s current policy followed two years of deliberations from an eleven-member committee comprised of Boy Scout executives and other volunteers who represented “a diversity of perspectives and opinions.”

When all was said and done, the committee concluded that the restriction served as “the best policy” for the Boy Scouts.

The current policy reads, “While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.”

Mitt Romney also recently reiterated his support for homosexual adoption. This past May, in an interview with Neil Cavuto of Fox News, he explained that while he is against the concept of homosexual “marriage,” he does believe that homosexual couples should be able to adopt children.

“[I]f two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child, in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something that people have a right to do,” Romney outlined. “But, to call that ‘marriage’ is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word.”

He had first outlined his position on the matter in 1996 while talking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

“Well, they are able to adopt children,” he said. “I’m not going to change that.”

Prior to Saul serving as Romney’s press secretary, Richard Grenell, an open homosexual, filled the position.

He did not say what Joe said. He also said the above:

I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

And he had his spokesperson come out the other day and say he still stands by that.

Mitt loses on the second count ~ he disagrees with Boy Scout policy. That policy is to keep homosexuals away from young boys.

He then thinks it's OK to put homosexuals into contact with young boys.

Frankly, I think his personal belief on the matter DISQUALFIES HIM TOTALLY for consideration as President.

Totally unaware of it but I might give an abrupt answer to someone who didn't ask a clear question. Then again I might not give any answer at all.

In other words, Romney rightly affirms it is the right of an organization to set its own rules. If he were making the rules, he’d let homosexuals participate.

In Massachusetts in 2006, Romney pushed and passed law that DENIED the right of adoption agencies to set their own rules with regard to homosexual adoption. When Romney says he thinks gays should have the "right" to adopt children, what he really means is that government should have the right to PUNISH adoption agencies that refuse to cooperate with homosexuals.

From Mitt's own website, we see "repeal and replace"

In place of Obamacare, Mitt will pursue policies that give each state the power to craft a health care reform plan that is best for its own citizens. The federal government’s role will be to help markets work by creating a level playing field for competition

RomneyCare = "state..healthcare reform plan..."

I think a lot of Romney voters are as disgusted by him as we are (or at least they say they are). But since they can’t bring themselves to actually defend either Romney’s record or his conservative creds, too many are reduced to insulting those who can’t bring themselves to vote for him.

I love talking with intellectually honest ABOs. We have solid debates and I enjoy the conversations. The others do no credit to their candidate or, frankly, the cause of beating Obama. Which we ALL want to see. Some of us just can’t support Romney as the candidate to do it.

May I add

The Catholic Churchs’ adoption services had to close in MA after providing adoption services for 109 years, because Romney said adoption agencies must let gays adopt. Sounds like the libs who say Chic-a-fil must agree with the homosexual lifestyle or close down your business. Actually it’s worse, because poor innocent children will suffer for Romney’s decision.

“Keep the Govt and politicians’ opinions out of private organizations.”

Nonsense! Romney wants the “votes” of moral conservatives, but basically takes a “moderate” position on something we feel strongly about. He has revealed he true character. HE IS A HOMOPHILE and it will affect his actions as POTUS. I don’t think he is fit to be POTUS. I won’t vote for him anymore than I would Obama. They are both equally bad, in differening ways...but both bad for the country.

I am strongly on record in support of the wisdom of the traditional Boy Scout policy, as witness this 2001 article: Boy Scouts Of America vs. A Leftwing Agenda.

But this article is misleading in its basic emphasis. While I deplore the comment of the Romney staff member, one must not overlook this statement by the candidate, even in Massachusetts, years ago: “I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue.”

So long as Governor Romney respects basic American freedom, my essential point in the "virtual" endorsement, remains the valid approach: Gov. Romney & American Conservatives.

By polite, persistent & persuasive appeals to Romney's strengths as a "problem solver," we have both our best chance to move him in the right direction, while moving others in the right direction. Why? Because the Conservative position on all issues is based upon human experience--what actually works for the betterment of all. We need to calmly appeal to reason, not denounce those who are only partly on our side. Those partly on our side are the most obvious ones to recruit next!

Think about how to win!

If 0bama wins, America is lost forever. Simple as that. He will finish the destruction—Supreme Court will be completely leftist FOR YEARS TO COME! Dictators don’t need no stinkin’ constitution either. And those are not even the worst things...

We have to start somewhere. THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE to even BEGIN with half a fighting chance.

Then look to get your ‘can do no wrong’ candidate in and then work on the boyscouts, the homo, illegal and the pro-life debates.
Sheesh, those are not the most dire problems we have AT THIS TIME.

Just because a candidate doesn’t stand up to all your soapy clean beliefs, you are willing to keep 0bamao in power.

You are the ones that will help take down America. It’s on your hands.

GET 0BAMA OUT FIRST!

Romney's bill would let charities block gay adoptions

BOSTON (AP) — Republican Gov. Mitt Romney proposed legislation Wednesday that would allow Catholic Charities to refuse to arrange adoptions for gay couples....

Arline Isaacson, the co-chair of the Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus, said that Romney's proposal was reprehensible and that exempting groups from anti-discrimination laws would lead other groups to seek their own exemptions.

I'm also an Ohioan. I actually listened to Romney's statement on Youtube and you were only told half of it, Ohio.

He went on, and this is what the next line was:

“I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.

I heard it with my own ears.

Oh really smart.(not) Replacing an evil with another evil just gets you more evil.

No, Romney is NOT a viable option. FOCUS on getting conservative elected to the House and Senate - that WILL keep Obama in check (If he keeps urinating on the COTUS, they will impeach and convict him). Stop wasting effort on a loser like Romney. Electing Romney will bring only momentary relief with long term disaster the result. It would be a totally hollow victory.

PURE SOPHISTRY. You make the assumption that Romney has strengths...he DOES NOT. NO Romey is NOT the answer to OBAMA. He is as bad as Obama. He cannot be moved to the right....he is NOT subject to persuasion.

Just say no to Obama!
Just say no to Romney!

Vote third party this cycle...and concentrate on getting conservatives elected to House and Senate and again in 2014. This election to already lost in regards to the position of POTUS. Romney is NOT an acceptable candidate...he is a country club GOP establishment candidate and DOES NOT represent the REAL party base - he will DESTROY conservatism. It is best to punt until 2016 when we have a chance to get a REAL conservative as the GOP candidate.

????

This belief about not giving homosexuals access to young boys is older than the Old Testament and New Testament combined, TP.

This isn't something new or unususal. It has been uniformly condemned as a terrible offense against creation and God Himself for millenia.

What is unusual in human history is for someone to be saying, "Hey, ignore it. It's no big deal."

Good post, Lancey, showing how Romney actualizes his "respect" for the Boy Scouts' right of free association. About the same as he "respected" the right of adoption agencies to refuse to allow the innocents entrusted to them to be adopted by homosexual "married with children" wannabees. Law in Massachusetts passed by him FORCED adoption agencies to cooperate or else -- and Catholic adoption agencies CLOSED after being in the biz for more than a century, rather than condemn the souls of innocent children in the name of Romney's depraved social engineering.

Voting for Romney is clearly as nuts as voting for Obama. I'm voting for a plurality -- third party -- to help in the vote count to deny either Romney or Obama a majority. The last time a liberal president was elected on a plurality, he was IMPEACHED -- and the time before that, he was bulldozed by the Republican Revolution and forced to the right. People piss and moan about the "Perot plurality" and at the time I was furious with folks who voted for Perot, but in retrosepct it is CRYSTAL CLEAR that the plurality created the opportunity for significant advances for conservatism that simply wouldn't have happened if HWB had been re-elected or if Clinton had ever won a majority -- which he didn't; he was elected by a plurality both times.

I'm voting FOR A PLURALITY because pluralities favor conservatives as per Clinton's two plurality wins. Others here are pretending to vote "against" Obama by voting TO strengthen liberalism in the Republician party. They don't mean to do that, but it is exactly what they are on the verge of voting for.

This article is full of it. From Mittens’ statement:

(1)“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,”
BSA had decided to EXCLUDE homosexuals as scout leaders

(2) “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”
As scouts? As leaders? He doesn’t say, nor does he say he thinks they should reconsider a decision he “supports”.

This article is VERY misleading, as it says Romney “comes out in support” of homos in the Scouts, and that he now “disagrees” with BSA’s policy. THIS IS NOT TRUE. She merely said “his stance has not changed”. Well, in the statement above, Romney in 1994 said he supported exclusion of homos. So why is the article’s author lying?

I find such “amoral” thinking to be scary Chaplain. Unfortunately, some folks only care about their pocketbooks. They would live in a moral sewer as long as they are properous. There are unwise folks out there that actually think that Romney is somehow going to rescue this country by economic means. Pure delusional thinking on their part.

Some people actually “live” what they believe. So if someone actually thinks homosexual marriage/adoption and abortion is wrong, they came from DU or Soros? We are being hypocritical if we only criticize the left for evil policies they take, and not stand up to the wrong in our own party, especially when we can stop it before it happens. If every pro-lifer and pro-true marriage person called the RNC and said they would stay home of Romney is the candidate, we might be able to get a true conservative in. In fact, to give romney the prize of the presidency, while he is guilty of the same things Obama does, is hypocritical. I think their a lot of people who like romney, even they they don't like him socially, but are too embarrassed to admit it.

Social conservatives know Romney doesn't’t care about what is important to us. He assumes we will all vote for him because we have no choice. We do; vote third party or write-in someone. Is the reason some people “expect” us to vote for a guy who is ok with abortion, homosexual marriage/adoption, because THEY are ok with abortion, homosexual marriage/adoption? Romney is offering social conservatives nothing. We don’t need him, HE needs us. Why do some people blame us for not voting for their guy, while NOT expecting ANYTHING FROM ROMNEY?

I'm with you, Hugh -- and I'm a Scot, as well. Have pinged another Scot, which makes three of us.

I abhor Romney's record on abortion, and recognize abortion as murder of an innocent, but the sinners involved -- the doctor and the mother -- are adults responsible for their sin and capable of sincere repentance.

Attempting to normalize homosexuality to children, on the other hand, is a million times more depraved, because those children pulled into the homosexual lifestyle become sinners while innocents, so for them to find repentance for a "sin" they (unlike the doc and mother involved in abortion) were too young to know was a sin, must be monstrously difficult. How can you repent a sin you honestly thought was perfectly okay? It is wickedness and pure depravity to so cavalierly risk putting children in that situation.

MITT ROMNEY promoted and celebrated the "outreach" of Gay Youth Pride to children as young as 12 in Massachusetts. He punished adoption agencies for refusing to cooperate with homosexual wannabee "parents." He condemned and effectively punished the Boy Scouts when he "saved" (ha ha) the Olympics in Utah.

Jesus had pretty strong words for those who "cause little ones to stumble."

I refuse to vote for Romney under any and all circumstances. My fear of God is greater than my fear of Obama. Furthermore, my TRUST in God to help a righteous people is far greater than my trust in Romney to change his ways once in office.

ABO is an affliction, and I pray that conservatives and Republicans get over it before November.

Yep, it does. I also hate it when I’m playing poker and have a pair of Kings and an ace falls on the table. It sucks but I have to play the hand I’m dealt and if it’s Romney or the Kenyan it’s a very easy choice for me.

I’m a Scot, too (1/4th, at least). You know where I stand.

I’m sure that is the goal of most of these DU Kos transplant GOP candidate bashers.

The Mittbots are the real Obots. They've inflicted an unelectable jerk on us.

Best if they left the Republican party and went back to their Democrat roots.
