Despite a directive from a leader of the Great Salt Lake Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), prohibiting scouts from advocating political or social positions, some scouts and adult supporters of Scouts for Equality wore their uniforms Sunday as they marched in Utah’s gay pride parade.

“...What were the doing marching ,,,”

personal attendance was not the issue ,wearing a uniform makes you represent the institution you are with.

Break the rules get dismissed....
but there is no backbone.

(except to send young people to death in stupid policy wars)

From BSA to SBA— (Scouting Boys from America).
Next up on the docket—Jerry Sandusky types for Scout Leaders.. might as well be a division under NAMBLA at that point.

All liberalism (like the New America generally, I'm afraid) operates on this principle:

"It just feels like the right thing to do.”

Watch for it to replace that outdated Scout oath.

The Boy Scouts thought that they could appease the “gay gods” wrath by giving in to their demands. Instead, they should’ve realized that all they did was sell their souls for the privilege of becoming another official mouthpiece for the queer pride movement. The BSA is now about SEX. It’s become a one-trick pony that is more concerned about where a man puts his penis than developing young men. It has been assimilated into the big pink blender.

Headquarters actually said that they could, just not in uniform. Unbelievable. Now "morally straight" means that you can celebrate sodomy, just not as a scout.

The idea of “gay Boy Scout” works the same way the idea of “gay marriage” works ... once the term itself is accepted in the vernacular, the condition is accepted sooner or later, and any aspect that had formerly constituted a “Boy Scout” or a “marriage” is wiped away and replaced with the dynamics of the new term.

So, yes, the “Boy Scouts” as we all knew them growing up are gone.

Folks here aren't getting what this incident actually was.

Here is what the action basically amounted to: Sodomites dragging their trophy carcass through the streets as conquerors.

Why are there 18 year old Boy Scouts anyway. I lost interest in the Summer before I went to High School. Do you really want the majorettes and cheerleaders aka GIRLS to see you in a Boy Scout uniform? End BSA at 16. Anyone older should be in Explorers. Especially if they have a drivers license.

Well by golly let’s not enforce the rules and kick them out of hte scouts for violating the rules eh? Because after all, they are supporters of the self-destructive gay lifestyle, and they apparently are allowed special privileges that straight scouts are not- ie: gay supportign scouts can break whatevwer rules they like, and anyoen that tries to do somethign about it will immedfiately be labelled a hater

[[Isn’t anything sacred anymore?]]

Need you ask that after our dear leader VIOLATED our constitution by shovign his health care down our throats UNCONSTITUTIONALLY? Not even our constitution is sacred any more- and the bible ceased beign sacred long ago in this coutnry to the left- The left have declared open war on the ‘moral majority’ in America, and they aren’t even tryign to hide it any longer-

IF they get called to the carpet for it, they simpy shrug their shoulders and claim “I didn’t know anythign about it” or “I did nothign wrong” and that will be the end of it as the spineless republicans in office look puzzled not knowing what to do next when faced with hte godless left

Funny , I thought that too, Well, you know how Rhom ended up

"..In fact, the Nazi Party began in a gay bar in Munich, and Ernst Roehm, Hitler's right hand in the early days of Nazism, was well-known for his taste in young boys. William Shirer says in his definitive "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," not only that Roehm was "important in the rise of Hitler," but also "like so many of the early Nazis, (he was) a homosexual." Hitler eventually had Roehm shot, not because he was a homosexual but because his influence over the Brown Shirts made him a political threat to Hitler's control. The Roehm Purge, or "Night of the Long Knives," was largely implemented by homosexuals. Hitler's Brown Shirts, the dreaded SA, better known as "Storm Troopers," were the creation of another homosexual, Gerhard Rossbach, and Storm Troopers were almost exclusively homosexual. They also, sadly, comprised most of the leadership of the Hitler Youth, resulting in frequent instances of sexual molestation. The Brown Shirts were Hitler's enforcers. According to Nazi historian Louis Snyder, Roehm recruited homosexuals into the SA because Roehm felt Germany needed "a proud and arrogant lot who could brawl, carouse, smash windows, kill and slaughter for the hell of it. Straights, in (Roehm's) eyes, were not as adept in such behavior as practicing homosexuals." Of the Brown Shirts, historian Thomas Fuchs says, "The principle function of this army-like organization was beating up on anyone who opposed the Nazis, and Hitler believed this was a job best undertaken by homosexuals." ....Bryan Fischer"

How is marching in a gay pride parade NOT advocating a political or social position in the first place?

ANY organization that won't stand up for it's beliefs because doing so might offend someone doesn't deserve to exist as an organization to begin with, IMHO.

Well since you asked...

FBI expert: Quran is 'revealed word of God' Agency sterilizes records to satisfy Muslim critics WND ^ | 6/4/13 | Bob Unruh
Posted on Tue Jun 4 19:14:29 2013 by Nachum

The FBI has censored and modified hundreds of pages of materials to satisfy Muslim critics, including a change that was made because an agency “expert” insisted the Quran “is the revealed word of God.”

The details come from Judicial Watch, which obtained documentation of the hundreds of pages of FBI memos, training documents and other paperwork that the agency purged on the demands of Muslims.

“The FBI is rewriting history in order to help al-Qaida,” said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “This shows that the law enforcement agency is in need of serious top-to-bottom reform.”

Fitton said a lesson learned from the Boston Marathon terrorist attack is that the country is less safe when it allows radical Muslim organizations to tell the FBI how to train its agents and do its job.

“The FBI’s purge of so-called ‘offensive’ material is political correctness run amok, and it puts the nation at risk,” he said. “The Obama administration needs to stop putting the tender sensibilities of radical Islamists above the safety of the American people.”

The organization recently released hundreds of pages of documents from the FBI that demonstrate the effort to purge from anti-terrorism training materials and curriculum anything that a number of unidentified “subject matter experts” deemed “offensive” to Muslims.

For example, according to Judicial Watch, one expert insisted that a particular slide in a training program describing the Quran as the teachings of Muhammad be removed or changed.

The reason?

“The Quran is not the teachings of the prophet,” wrote the expert, “but the revealed word of God.”

The Boy Scouts succeeded in keeping gay leaders out.

That was a huge accomplishment IMO.

The Boy Scouts still admits gay boys but that's not nearly so bad; in fact, I'm all for helping kids to escape the bondage. Yes, there will still be activists...but the position of the Boy Scouts to not discriminate against kids may be the right one.

Thanks for pointing this out. A lot of folks have always thought that the Nazis hated queers, but Roehm is the perfect example of how Hitler had no qualms about homosexuality when it fit his plans.

I think you are being naive. First of all, the gay mafia got their foot in the door and for that the victory goes to them, not the BSA for waving the white flag of surrender. Gaining admission for gay leaders is going to be laughably easy after this.

BSA should have taken the opportunity to reaffirm their commitment. In showing unforgivable weakness, they have begun a slow death spiral.

Second, there is a difference between being gay and being openly gay. The former I cautiously agree with you about because strong male role models are a positive thing. The latter has NO PLACE in Boy Scouts. Boys are there to learn to be men, not to be distracted by open displays from other boys who are confused about their own gender.

Scouting is not about sex at all. I am pretty sure that most boy scout leaders did not sign up to chaperone perverted “couples” on campouts. And if they ever kick a kid out for breaking any rules, just let the discrimination lawsuits begin. No, the BSA should NEVER have cracked the door on this. If a kid has openly declared that he has no interest in being a true man, then he should be denied membership.

In a word... No. I am a Scoutmaster. This new policy is one of affirmation. We WILL NOT be able to tell a homosexual boy that it is wrong and point them in the correct direction. We MUST accept his homosexuality as normal and encourage him. This will be strictly enforced and the homosexual activist will be ready to sue any troop that does not comply into non existence, and since the BSA policy is to admit them and affirm them, the BSA legal will not help.

As for adults, this decision guts the Supreme court case in favor of the BSA ( DALE case). They no longer have that protection. Adult open and avowed homosexuals will be admitted into BSA ranks very soon.

The BSA as we knew it died on May 23, 2013. I will no longer be a part of it , or my two sons and wife who was on the committee. Anyone currently in BSA and who does not agree with this policy needs to get out and let it rot and die.
