I hate to post and run - but thought this worthy of the attention of all FReepers... back later today.

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!

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...

Oh, queers are allowed in the Boy Scout tents now, huh?

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.

What one generation tolerates, the next embraces.. Profound. Very gripping....seven very potent, and true, words. One of the most concise distillations of our problems today all boiled down to those few words.

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.

This comes from catering to corporate executives on the boards of directors. Liberal ones love getting on boards of organizations like the Boy Scouts and undermining them from within.

The Pittsburgh council had an anti-Christian one join their board shortly before the spokesman went on local Christian radio to beg for public support. I called him out on it and his response was that he didn’t know how I found out who was on the board of directors.

Look for liberals in the machinery on this one.

If they do this they’ll be finished, gone in 10 years.

The public assumption will be that all boyscouts are gay.

That will run all the straight kids away.

Gay mission, accomplished.

These organisations can’t fall over themselves fast enough to offer up innocent sacrifices to the sodomites, because that’s what this boils down to. They are actively placing on offer, young innocent boys at the convenience of the sodomites to abuse and, hopefully in the sodomites’ minds, turn into more sodomite fodder for their future use.

And yet this still won’t be enough, sodomites being as promiscuous as they are. Don’t think they won’t be soon ramping up on their “activism” against parental rights, including homeschooling, parents raising their children as Christians, etc, because these are all fresh new sources of victims for them, and they can’t have obstacles such as “parents” or “church” in the way of their desires to practice their perversion.

Not the boys, it will scare off the parents.
Granted, in a few places it will open boy scouting in public schools where they are currently unwelcome, but it will destroy it where it is currently strong.
The net-net will eventually be a massive membership decrease.

Yeah, and the perverted government school system-from Sesame Street and Head Start, right through grade school and university, has a monopoly on educating the majority of children, and thus ensuring this embrace of perversion. The kids don’t have to know how to read when they “graduate”, but at least their ideology will be “correct”.

That was all his response? Just wow. We used to say that they didn’t care what they did as long as they didn’t get caught. Now they don’t even care if they get caught, because they know there will never be any repercussions, now that they’ve created a society where “anything goes”. Cole Porter had no idea whatsoever (a bit of ankle?!)

As a VERY traditional Catholic family, the local Southern Baptist church is about the ONLY place we feel totally comfortable dropping off our kids for occasional activities, such as Vacation Bible School. Ironies abound.

While in my first year of law school, we studied several cases involving Scout leaders who had molested boys, with the Scouting organization ultimately losing lots of money. Trial lawyers are probably salivating as much as open homosexuals. God help the Scout leadership to not allow this insane idea to gain any ground.

Last year, some foundation for a company...Merck, I think, said it wasn’t going to fund Boy Scouts anymore.

I sent the BSA some money in support.

They had better hold fast.

Boy Scout Oath or Promise:

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.

Every time I hear that at my Son's Scout meetings, I quietly think to myself, just how much longer they'll keep the "Morally Straight" part in there? Once fags are in, you know that will be one of the first things they'll whine about.

Yes but he was supported by the show host who wondered why it mattered who was on the board of directors. Fortunately other callers saw my side (and eventually swayed the host). The point put forward was that organizations need to be careful of the people they put into positions of power. It’s not all about money.

So what do they intend to do with pedophiles? Oh, that’s right, acccept them as the “adult” supervisors. What will they do with 14 year old homosexuals at camp? Oh, that’s right, accept that behavior as “normal”.
