Posted on 05/26/2016 5:47:47 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Robert Gates became the Boy Scouts of Americas president facing deep divisions within the organizations membership over whether to let gays serve openly in its ranks.
On Thursday, Gates finished his two-year term by arguing the Scouts had overcome that challenge and were ready to reverse years of membership declines.
In a speech to Scouting leaders, the former U.S. secretary of defense defended the compromise last year to allow openly gay adult leaders to serve in the Scouts, but give churches sponsoring troops the right to use sexual orientation as a guideline for selecting leaders.

Monstrous bastard...may he meet the worst of the fates he has inflicted on innocent children here and in hell.
Gates always struck as the untrustworthy & conniving sort. Too willing to serve liberal masters and thereby providing a veneer of bi-partisanship. He can rot in retirement.
His legacy - caving to the gay lobby and putting the scouts on a path to certain destruction.

At least he is gone.
Although given the way things are going lately, they will probably fill the position with an avowed Homo-pedophile-tranny.
There will be kids molested and lives destroyed all because of his actions, opening the doors of that once-great institution to perverts. I hope he burns in the deepest, darkest corner of hell.
Oops, forgot link:
He helped destroy to institutions, the military and the scouts. Rot in hell.
Declining membership will not be saved with pro-sodomite, pro female is male, policies.
It wil tank harder.
These society destroyers are evil perverted bastards.
Gates MUST be QUEER!! Why else would a MAn want young BOYS involved with GAY LEADERS??? SICKO!!!

The gay Scouts are no doubt losing membership because of this policy. Otherwise, we would be treated to huge headlines bragging about the fact.
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.
How can a practicing homosexual take that oath in good conscience?
Of course one could I suppose be lying to themselves and say that God made them that way so it must be Okay.
“On Thursday, Gates finished his two-year term by arguing the Scouts had overcome that challenge and were... “ready to reverse”
... forget it It would be too easy
He sure gives Texas A&M a bad name.
Not only Gates, but the entire of the Democrat Party as they push for special rights for queers. That’s right special rights above, and beyond your rights, and mine to be respected, and left alone to travel down the path of destiny unmolested.
The Democrats, the Socialist-Marxist-Democrats goal in all of this toilet terrorism is to breakdown the morals of this once great nation, and rebuild it under their control to be what they want for their comfort, and their pleasure. They seek a master/slave society, and they almost have achieved it.
The Boy Scouts are no longer a viable safe entity for our kids as now they have monsters in leadership able, and willing to grab our children, choke them, slam them against walls, force them to capitulate to their perverted pleasure. No more Boy Scouts unless they return to the moral family oriented entity they once so proudly were.
Steady decline, meet cliff drop off. Sucks for the kids.
Wonder how far down the list Gates is on the NAMBLA membership list...
Scouting isn’t about sex. If the leaders have to parade their preferences, they aren’t fit to be leaders.
