The Boy Scouts of America is considering dropping a longtime ban on gay members, according to a spokesman.
The BSA is discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation,'' spokesman Deron Smith said in a statement obtained by FoxNews.com. "This would mean there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation, but that the chartered organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with their organizations mission, principles or religious beliefs."
I hate to post and run - but thought this worthy of the attention of all FReepers... back later today.
Well of course they are. What one generation tolerates, the next embraces.
I find little comfort in the fact that the law of the land says these ‘individuals’ have the same rights, etc. as the rest of us. Especially, in the case if I had a young son that was eager to go on his first ‘camping out’ trip with a Scout Leader who had a penchant for buggering little boys.
Nope, just not gonna accept that!
It’s never just about inclusion, butt adopting their agenda.
It’s the Democrat motto.
If this is true, then I will no longer contribute.
I wonder who will accept the liability of putting a queer older boy in a tent with some tenderfoots. I sure wouldn’t write liability insurance for Boy Scouts Troops with known homosexuals.
Ditto. We'll see how much they get in contributions from the NAMBLA types.
They were probably strong-armed by one of Odumbo’s lackeys. Weeks ago, it was a definite no. It didn’t surprise me that they lasted this long before the ass munchers go in for the kill...
This is the BSA's "enemy in the wire" moment.
They, like the rest of America, are now officially doomed.
Sexuality put aside, I would question anyone’s motive to desire spending the night in the woods with my son if they didn’t have their own child in the group. I’m not going to ban my kid from the scouts, but he sure as heck isn’t going on an outing unless I know all the adults and none are either homos or have questionable motives.
Adult gay men and boys do not belong together for the same reason that you don’t have straight adult men as the supervisors of girl scouts.
“Boy Scouts” seems to have an differnt meaning now.
“Deviants Scouting for Boys”
As a 1963 Eagle Scout, and current NESA (Nat’l Eagle Scout Assn) member, I’ve already notified the BSA that I’ll return my rank award and stop all donations. Yeah, sure; like that’ll have any effect on the pro-fag decision.
“What one generation tolerates, the next embraces”
Post of the day
Well, why not? I mean since the Girl Scouts went pro-abortion & pro-bulldyke years ago, the Boys have really been behind the times /s
(I’m only being sarcastic about the boys part...the GSUSA have swung left - way, wayyyy left)
