BSA changed its homosexual scout policy on urging from the loathsome scum at NAMBLA
Coach is Right ^ | 6/2/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Posted on 06/02/2013 8:48:35 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

For many years the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) has been licking its lips at the thought of legalizing sodomy with little boys. Raping little boys with impunity is all these loathsome scumbags think about day and night. Unencumbered by the responsibilities of living a normal life, NAMBLA members are able to put all of their efforts, time and money into bringing about the satanic kingdom they long for. They will do anything to get their way.

NAMBLA follows a kind of paraphrase of the famous bank robber Willie Sutton who once said he robbed banks “because that’s where the money is.” For NAMBLA finding a way into the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is “going where the...

NAMBLA must have a lot of support among the American people to be so strong in winning its goals.

Boy Scouts blew this bigtime.

I don’t know how the election was done, but it truly needs to be reversed.

Not dealt with, reversed.

Or the Boy Scouts is done.

The LDS Church - which is the largest supporter of the BSA - will never let that happen - at least not in the scout troops they supervise. The LDS Church will keep its ranks “Morally straight!” Remember Prop 8 and The Church’s support for it and it passed, in California no less.

For the members of NAMBLA: Just covert to Islam. They don’t consider sex with youths to be sex. If you then get caught under the current regime you’ll probably get a free pass since its a religious freedom issue and Islam is more equal others. For the rest of us it’s just another reason not to import Muslims.

Sorry but my understanding is the Mormon church is behind the new emphasis.

Is that not the case?

My understanding is, they are the driving force behind this new policy?

The Boy Scouts are in bed with the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)?
LMBO!!!

It’s all making sense now - - the Boy Scouts were infiltrated by Democrats, just like the GOP has been infiltrated by Democrats.

It is reported that the LDS published a letter supporting admitting Sodomite boys into the scouts. To put it another way the heirarchy approved the BSA action admitting “Gay Boys.”

Mark 4:17
But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.
We can not be a fair weathered fan, friend or just mere observers in order to endure the present climate and things to come.....
The Lord can not tolerate...Nicolaitans, REV 2:6, 3:16
Romans 8:35
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?...(or we our worst enemy?)
Philippians 4:4-7
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus...
For no matter what may come,if we focus on Jesus there is always Joy in the morning, noon and evening.
We are the Hallelujah side...

Not surprising at all. I first heard of Nambla when I was 7 back in the early 70’s. Our local news would show clips of the San Francisco Gay Parade. I remember seeing NAMBLA banner marching. Liberal Gays and NAMBLA very much are interconnected. I also recall their little slogan “Sex before 8 is too late”. Sickening yes, but they are gradually infiltrating every aspect of what is good about our nation and ripping it apart to destroy it.

“The lds was the gateway for the new policy. Look it up.”

It was the leadership of the BSA that approved the new policy. I talked to some scout leaders yesterday and they all said that no boy may practice homosexuality - or heterosexuality - while participating in scout activities. They are to remain “morally straight” at all times. I am glad that folks are leaving the BSA in a huff. The LDS Church will continue to accept all boys and lead them in the ways of righteousness and good citizenship.

“My understanding is, they are the driving force behind this new policy?”

Not that I know of. The question was put like this: Shall we exclude some boys from partaking of the Blessings of BSA activities? How would it be acceptable to tell a young boy that he is not welcome in the Boy Scouts. All boys should be welcome. The motto of “morally straight” is one that will continue to be in effect and the LDS-led troops will not fail. Meanwhile, gay scout leaders are not acceptable because they are ADULTS who are charged with awesome responsibilities to maintain the upright tenets of the BSA.

Leave the definition as it has been for years.

That was perfect.

That is not what happened. The definition was changed, and my point is, the LDS was a force behind the change. Is that not the fact? My point is it appears to be, the LDS contributed to that change.

If that is not the fact, then they as a major influence should reverse this pig-headed stupidity right now.

Now.

The mormons operate self contained boy scout troops ~ and they all go to the same summer camps at the same time ~ so they don't have to interact with Boy Scouting outside of their little world.

They literally have no reason to leave plus there's one half billion in assets that will fall into their hands to control just as soon as they get rid of all the gentiles!

It’s simple enough to fight. Simply DO NOT put your kids in scouting; and take them out if they’re in. Tell them why. Leave the BSA and whoever else is infiltrated with a tiny group of gay members. They’ll fold fast. I can’t imagine many effeminate boys wanting to ‘rough it’ in the wilderness. Perhaps they’ll make scouting more about crafts and interior decorating, maybe make up and hairstyling.

NO child of mine would be in the BSA one minute after this ruling. Take all straight kids out of scouting, or risk sacrificing them to predators-like the people who gave their children to the god football at Penn State.

I don’t know the cause of your obtuseness; the homosexual agend pushers have been tight with NAMBLA since the beginning of “gay libeation” in the early 70s, only after a while they publically distanced themselves from NABMBLA. The original “Gay Rights Platform” including this:

Repeal of ALL age of consent laws.

Add to that the fact that at leats 1/3 of all child molestation is same sex, and there you have it.

Quotes from the NAMBLA letter to the BSA is at the link; here are a few more snippets:

The male homosexual lifestyle revolves around the culture of youth. Old homosexuals lust for younger and younger partners.

A 1988 study titled Archives of Sexual Behavior, established that 86% – almost 7 of 8 – pedophiles self-identify as homosexual or bi-sexual.

NAMBLA calls itself a part of the mainstream of gay and lesbian “liberation.”

The Queer Resource Directory www.qrd.org a homosexual “meeting place” linking homosexual groups that focus on young people, lists NAMBLA as a resource.

Never forget that every male homo is a NAMBLA member still hiding in the closet.

This is simply the next and more progressive level of sexual abuse led by perverts in what is a normal sexually dimorphic species. If we can get past the hollywood promotional by homosexual writers to look at the lifestyle still hiding in the closet, we can fully characterize just how sick these creatures really are. The hallmarks of the male homosexual: unnatural acts of perverted sex with dozens of partners; an attraction to sex in filthy public restrooms; an aphrodisiac-like attraction to fecal material, aka coprophilia; molestation of young boys they label “twinks” as they pass their victims around the gay community to infect these kids with a dozen diseases; complete disregard for basic human hygiene in the most unsanitary of conditions explaining why male homos have the highest incidence of odd diseases transmitted in unusual ways; suicide rate spiking well above normal populations; and finally an average life-span of about 43 years. Naw, no mental derangement here. This is a healthy life choice and deserves to be foisted on young children.ding in the closet.

I believe the motto was "sex after 8 is too late." And I'm thinking that was actually the motto of another pedophile group. I vaguely remember that NAMBLA had a similar slogan that is equally depraved and disgusting.

NAMBLA proves that if there is no Hell, then there is no justice' and life makes no sense.

There must be a God, a Heaven and a Hell, and eternal judgment.

LOL!!! LDS has been coerced into compliance by the homofascist rulers. They, at least the current leadership, has buckled and compromised principle for survival. It is not a coincidence that donor and support information was leaked by the current leftist regime. MAYBE once the neutered leaders are replace LDS can regain the initiative and again REALLY oppose the homosexual sex perverts.

Th original letter from NAMBLA to BSA can be found at ...
http://www.defendthefamily.com/pfrc/books/pinkswastika/html/the_pinkswastika_4th_edition_-_final.htm>
The Pink Swastika

Only took the chicken hawks 21 years ...

NOV 1992 – NAMBLA sent a letter to BSA Chief Scout Executive Ben Love in which NAMBLA predicted that BSA would eventually succumb to homosexual demands. The letter was also published in the NOV, 1992 NAMBLA Bulletin.

Dear Mr. Love, (Chief Scout Executive, BSA)

At its 16th membership conference, held in Chicago, August 7-9-1992, the North American Man/Boy Love Association unanimously adopted the following resolution:

“NAMBLA calls on the Boy Scouts of America to cease its discrimination against openly gay or lesbian persons in the appointment of its scout masters. This will permit scouts to be exposed to a variety of lifestyles and will permit more of those individuals who genuinely wish to serve boys to do so.”

I feel especially honored to have been asked to alert you of this resolution. I have also been a scout and a scout leader and share with so many in NAMBLA affection for the movement.

We recognize, of course, that the action for which we call is inevitable. What a great added contribution your organization will make possible to all the boys and girls who participate in it when you take this step. May it be taken in the near future.

We share a common mission — to bring greater understanding and light and purpose to the young as they grow. We invite you to join with us in cherishing individual integrity, and in seeking the opportunity for every boy and girl in our country to find their own truth. We encourage you to help every person associated with your organization to be able to express those values from themselves which to them represent for themselves the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. As we work together toward these ends Light will guide our way.

We express these sentiments most respectfully,
Very Cordially,
Leland Stevenson
Co-Recording Secretary, NAMBLA

26 It was the leadership of the BSA that approved the new policy.

4/19/2013 - The BSA’s National Executive Committee (~23 voting members) unanimously approved and released its membership standards resolution, which proposed removing the restriction denying membership to youth on the basis of sexual orientation alone and maintaining the current membership policy for all adult leaders of the BSA.

http://scoutingmagazine.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/executive-summary-of-study-findings.pdf

http://scoutingmagazine.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/membership-standards-frequently-asked-questions.pdf

Key Findings - excerpts

 Attitudes and opinions among Americans related to gay and lesbian relationships have changed rapidly over the past 3 years.
 Four experts were consistent in their findings and recommendations …
• David Finkelhor, Ph.D.
• W. Walter Menninger, M.D., psychiatry
• Charol Shakeshaft, Ph.D.
• Victor Vieth, J.D.
• “The nearly universal opinion among sexual abuse authorities is that same-sex sexual interest or same-sex sexual experience, either in adults or youth, is NOT a risk factor for sexually abusing children.”
• In regard to role modeling: “Most of the research on the effect on children of associating with self-identified homosexual adults has been done about homosexual parents. The clear conclusion from this research is that there appear to be no effects on children’s adjustment, mental health or sexual orientation.”

These statements are breathtakingly duplicitous and will be a stain on the reputation of the BSA because of the 23 members of the BSA National Executive Committee who engineered this change. The ~ 30 year scandal within the Roman Catholic Church of homosexual priests preying on adolescent males is the proof of this Goebbels-sized big lie.

... I am glad that folks are leaving the BSA in a huff. The LDS Church will continue to accept all boys and lead them in the ways of righteousness and good citizenship.

A great deal of information has been posted on FR since 5/23/2013 on the topic of the LDS Church's role in the membership change. Just do a keyword search with "Boy Scouts" and read the posts since 5/23. Of course, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

31 Yep, they voted in favor. Catholics, Methodists and Baptists against.

5/24/2013 – Churches to have 'hard discussion' about Scouts
http://www.baptistpress.org/BPnews.asp?ID=40379
The Southern Baptist press organ reported:
"Rich Peck, communications director for the General Commission on United Methodist Men, said the organization would continue its affiliation with BSA. But local churches, some of which have voiced disapproval of the policy change, may choose to end their charters. The group had issued a statement in February asking the BSA Executive Board to delay the vote in order to give them more time to consider its implications."

I haven't found a direct link to the UMM statement, yet, but everything I have sourced from the Southern Baptist organ has proven accurate, so far.

5/31/2013 – Baptists plan exodus from Boy Scouts http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/31/southern-baptists-to-urge-churches-and-members-to-cut-boy-scout-ties/
"… The Southern Baptist Convention, the country’s largest Protestant denomination, will soon urge its 45,000 congregations and 16 million members to cut ties with the Scouts, according to church leaders. The denomination will vote on nonbinding but influential resolutions during a convention June 11-12 in Houston. “There’s a 100% chance that there will be a resolution about disaffiliation at the convention,” said Richard Land, the longtime head of the Southern Baptists’ Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, “and a 100% chance that 99% of people will vote for it. … Southern Baptists are going to be leaving the Boy Scouts en masse.” Roger “Sing” Oldham, a spokesman for the Southern Baptist Convention, emphasized that local congregations make their own decision on the Scouts."

Now, we have had a lively exchange regarding the RCC's position. I am only posting what I have found ...

5/29/2013 – Letter from our NCCS Chairman
http://www.nccs-bsa.org/comment/Response-EPM-130529-v2.pdf

I am excerpting ...

... We felt that the Catholic Scouters selected as voters could, in good conscience, vote either for or against the Resolution.

... The NCCS has as its purpose to utilize and ensure the constructive use of the program of the BSA as a viable form of youth ministry with the Catholic youth of our nation. To do this, we cooperate with the bishops of the United States, relating to the USCCB through a Bishop Liaison. Each diocesan bishop must decide whether the membership standard is acceptable. Bishop Guglielmone has written to every bishop in the United States concerning the issue and has made himself available to assist them in doing what is best for our young people.

... BSA is expected to provide more details on the application of this resolution over the coming months leading to the resolution’s implementation on January 1, 2014.

... We ask that Catholic Scouters and chartered organization heads not rush to judgment as the policy does not go into effect until January 1, 2014. Over the next couple of months, the NCCS will use a task force to develop and execute a plan for insuring a consistent message is delivered to dioceses, parishes, Catholic Scouters and the media and to prepare guidelines to assist diocesan committees in understanding the issues associated with the change in the BSA youth membership standard.

This article is just BS plain and simple. There is nothing in the text that even addresses the claims made in the headline. Also, NAM$LA as an organized group has not participated in those parades probably since the 70s. Look, I am aware of th gay agenda creeping to mainstream society ias the next person but this blog is fantasy Prove me wrong, Post a photo from a pride parade from this century with a someone holding a NAM$la banner. Coach is wrong. This shrieking does nothing productive to address the problem of gays and their lifestyle becoming mainstream.
