Skip to comments.Rasmussen: Boy Scouts' Favorability Continues to Slide
Posted on 04/08/2014 3:54:27 AM PDT by markomalley
New survey numbers from Rasmussen show public opinion turning slowly against the Boy Scouts. Though most Americans still view them favorably, their numbers continue in a perennial trend of decline.
The national poll taken by telephone shows 59% of Americans still view the Boy Scouts at least "somewhat" favorably, this represents a decline of six percentage points from last May and a 14 point decline from February, 2012. Twenty-eight percent view the Boy Scouts unfavorably.

Is this because they rolled over for the gay mafia or because people no longer believe in their “be morally straight” credo?
The whimpering death of an American cultural right of passage for generations of boys.
When I see stuff like this, I really feel like I no longer live on planet Earth.
Seems every day gets worse.
I used to donate to the Boy Scouts. Not any more, not since they started caving.
It's the same exact thing.
Instead of remaining the Boy Scouts of America they chose to become the boy sodomites of America.
There is no way to equate promoting sexual perversion with being morally straight
There are no 11 year old or 13 year old queers.
I thought accepting gay children(wth did I just type) was supposed to greatly increase participation.
We are letting Satan destroy every bastion of what is good and Holy.
It is not simply the tearing down of what is good.
It is the complete transformation to the promotion and endorsement of evil.
Ya mean to say that caving into the mores of the “gay” crowd DOES NOT getcha wealth, fave, respect and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$?
Whooda thunk it. The NYT loves ya, though.
Quite frankly, who wants their sons or grandsons being in the company of homosexuals?
Thats well more than half of today's 41% unfavorable rating.
As a partner in a large law firm, I was confronted by a surprising number of other lawyers about the BSA's anti-homosexual policy and alleged militarism in the early 1990s.
The 41% unfavorable rating doesn't come entirely from rolling over for the gay mafia. I'd guess less than half of it does.
This will change when we get another Boy Scout president, or at least someone favorable to the Scouts who has the sae beliefs, ideals and goals as the Scouts.
The loss of support is purely from the traditional base. The gays will never support them despite the caving. So in end, they give in and lose even more support. Just like a rino. They appease the media and lefties who in the end will never be on their side. Good going.
“Follow Me Boys”, starring Fred MacMurray, is a reminder of the value Boy Scouts had to a town - get the boys off the streets and occupy their time learning valuable life skills — including citizenship.
In our council the troops and packs lost were with Baptist churches.
Many of the boys migrated to other units
Most of the former scouting families that I know joined
Trail Life USA
What a sad ending for a once remarkable and wholesome organization.
Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave,
clean, and reverent
I’m an Eagle Scout but I don’t have my sons participate in scouting. They have moved too far left.
this is a direct result of Obama being elected. It empowered the grievance mongers and we now have a social environment, very hostile to the USA being fueled by the CinC..
I hope everyone that sat home on election day are happy.
It will fail...... very narrow, no extensive program.
A trivial five minute make up
And in the end all the assets and camps will go to the fags.
Not necessarily - many of the troops are set up such that when the troop disbands, the assets go to the sponsoring organization, who is free to sponsor another organization, like a Trail Life Troop.
Yes. The first is proof of the second.
Had the BSA not allowed the first, the second would still be accepted or defendable. Religion is under the same assault.
In fact, I can't think of a single American ideal, virtue or admired institution that's not under assault or hasn't already fallen.
Bite the apple and rot from the inside out and we've been force fed for decades.
The stuff of the end times or just ours?
Sadly, likely never again.
It’s not that BSA and it’s values are less popular, its that what’s popular has less values.
That's why I would have answered "unfavorably" if polled.
Never gonna happen.
Sorry, I don’t believe that to be even remotely true...Trail Life is filling a void left by the BSA, actually, one the BSA abandoned...it may not grow as large as the BSA once was, but it will survive and thrive...bigger isn’t always better.
The BSA went after “bigger” and in doing so, had to sell their morals and values to the highest corporate bidder...this is the result...queers in the BSA, a loss of morals and values.
The BSA will adopt homosexual adult leaders once Robert Gates takes the helm at National...it’s what he’s “famous” for when in the DoD...
Let me ask you a question, you say with a certain air of certainty that there are “no 11 or 13 year old queer Scouts”...you know that for certain? You really do? Cause I have a question for you then; When do they turn into queers?
Why is it ok for a 17 years, 364 days old queer Scout to tent with an 11 year old hetero, but it’s not ok for an 18 year old hetero Scout to tent with his 17 years and 364 days old hetero best friend?
National won’t answer me...maybe you will, since you’re all knowing?
Robert Gates is slated to be the next National President...his history precedes him as it relates to homosexuality...
Scouting or your sons?
I thought he already is?
Hard to believe he used to be president of the very conservative Texas A&M University.
And it is dying because of the gay mafia. It makes one feel nauseous.
That’s what happens when you compromise....you just wind up pissing everybody off.
Could be and if so, thanks for the correction...if it’s not here on FR, I don’t keep up with what they’re doing any longer...I’m still trying to get that knife out of my back...the one the BSA slipped in during the time between the Scouting survey +60% against the change to the Convention where that suddenly went to +60% for the change...I’m still trying to figure that one out...not.
Along with every other conservative. But it's probable that at least two Trojan horse board members were instrumental in placing their own trolls in places of power in very short order.
The 11 year old and all those in the troop will know the 17 kid is queer..... it is a straw man argument. Won’t happen
Kids are cruel and will give the queer a very hard time.
baloney! Most troops are just as they have been from past years, as they are sponsored by good, upright institutions and are not following the national path.
And, starting back in the early eighties volunteers for adult leadership positions were required to complete a detailed application which district professionals had to approve. This was an effort to keep homosexuals out of the troops. It was pretty much successful, although some slipped in. I understand that an even improved process is still in place.
End of story.
You’re dodging...why does BSA policy permit a 17 year old queer to tent with an 11 year old hetero but an 18 year old hetero can’t tent with his 17 year old hetero buddy?
I don’t give a rat’s ass about what kind of hard time they’re going to get...why does BSA policy permit this?
Our entire troop joined with Trail Life USA. Their program has many elements that are better than what BSA offered. We’re small now but growing in leaps and bounds. Both troops and units.
I highly encourage all Freepers and those who care about their boys having a moral foundation to explore Trail Life USA, join a troop or just bite the bullet and start one.
Technically there are no homosexuals of any age. There are only people afflicted with homosexuality.
And those afflicetd adults who have been attacking the BSA for years have finally gotten the BSA to cave in to the homosexual agenda and turn away from their oath to be morally straight.
Next step is to push for 'gay' scout leaders as those gay boy scouts will need someone they can identify with. The end goal is faggots molesting boys in order to spread their disease.
We've got one already. We have a homsoexual (or at least a homsexual promoter) in the white house and the BSA promotes homosexuality.
Perhaps what you mean is this will change when the BSA RETURNS to it's founding beliefs, ideals and goals.
Tha’st the anti BSA party line being parroted among some sects
