The following comes from a July 14 Christian Post article by Stoyan Zaimov:
The historic ban on openly gay leaders is set to be officially struck down within the Boy Scouts of America after its executive committee voted unanimously on the change late last week. Individual Scout troops will be allowed to set their own policy on leaders, meaning that church-sponsored troops would be allowed to uphold the ban.
“This change allows Scouting’s members and parents to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families,” the Boys Scouts of America said in statement on Monday. “This change would also respect the right of religious chartered organizations to continue to choose adult leaders whose beliefs are consistent with their own.”
The Associated Press reported that the resolution is expected to be ratified by the organization’s 80-member National Executive Board at a meeting on July 27.
The change has been expected, with Boys Scouts of America president and former Defense Secretary Robert Gates stating in May that the ban on openly gay leaders was no longer sustainable for the organization, and maintaining it would likely result in a number of lawsuits.
“I am not asking the national board for any action to change our current policy at this meeting,” Gates told members back then. “But I must speak as plainly and bluntly to you as I spoke to presidents when I was director of the CIA and secretary of defense. We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be.”
He added: “We can act on our own or be forced to act. But either way, I suspect we do not have a lot of time.”
Part of the problem is that BSA no longer understands their mission. Boy Scouts is not about baby sitting or camping. It’s mostly about helping to form boys into men. This fundamentally requires men and the “psychological stuff” that only men can give to boys. Women can’t give this, yet BSA allows women to be involved in Scouting, thus weakening their mission. This new move by BSA compounds the issue. Homosexuality in men usually develops from lack of adequate bonding with the father. As such, gay men have a deep-seated ambivalence towards men and typically experience a masculinity deficit. Consequently, its doubtful that gay men have the “psychological stuff” that scouting needs. BSA has lost its sense of mission.
Uh, no, homosexuality does not result from lack of adequate bonding with the father. That nonsense was thrown out as an hypothesis decades ago.
By the gay psychologies!
I knew the Boy Scouts would do this. I will not give them one thin dime.
The Boy Scouts don’t know right from wrong.
Without GOD, there is NO morality. Just like the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts have given in to ungodly behavior. We often speak about the Nazi Youth, or the Hitler Youth, and now these same agents of Satan are poisoning the minds and souls of our young. May God have mercy on us.
I was an assistant scoutmaster. We donated th BSA every year, but a few years ago stopped. If I want my children perverted they will do it for free in public schools.
I was once proud to be a Scout, and “be prepared” has served me well over the years.
I will never again support the Scouts.
All Boys were forced in to the ‘hitler youth’ (run by pederast party founder Ernst Rohm) and used as a stable of boy toys (like hitler was Rohm’s boy) for the leadership to get intoxicated and Rape – often taking blackmail pictures for the family to pay to keep quiet.
Gates sold out the US Military and soiled the Service of so many Fine Men who never would have volunteered to defend such EVIL
I say it is time to Become – Conscientious Objectors. Not just to the Military but the DRAFT (still the law) and the rest of the evil of POTUS Barry ‘on the down low’ Soetoro’s Abomination.
Look on the bright side – Arlington Cemetery can now be ‘fundamentally transformed’ in to an amusement park for ‘happy campers’ to tolerantly join in the Conga Line of Patriotic Buggery dressed in military drag or the traditional ‘tsysted syster’ mockery of Catholic Nuns..
Another once good organization taken down by “tolerance”.
Tell the Boy Scouts NOT to Accept Homosexual Leaders
July 21, 2015: According to CNN, the executive committee of the Boy Scouts of America has adopted a new resolution to accept openly homosexual scout leaders. The announcement clearly contradicts the original mission and oath of the Scouts, which is based on honor, duty to God, and moral uprightness.
Take action: The national executive board will vote whether or not to accept this new resolution on July 27. So please sign this petition, urging the Boy Scouts to REVERSE course.
But we only have until July 27 to make a difference.
Now is our LAST CHANCE to contact the Boy Scouts and tell them that…
Tell the Boy Scouts NOT to Accept Homosexual Leaders
…Now is our LAST CHANCE to contact the Boy Scouts and tell them that faithful parents don’t want this pro-homosexual agenda. Faithful boys don’t want it either.
Moreover, parents understand how the public acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle would not only undermine good morals, but also increase the risk of sexual abuse. An in-depth study published by the Family Research Council demonstrates that homosexuals, who account for approximately two percent of the population, are responsible for up to one third of child sexual abuse cases.
Sign & share this urgent petition today. Thank…
