Skip to comments.Boy Scouts to vote on policy involving gays
Posted on 02/06/2013 2:23:56 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
The polarizing debate over whether Boy Scouts of America should allow gay members could culminate with a vote on a new policy Wednesday.
But no matter which way the vote goes, activists on both sides aren't going to be satisfied.
The controversy pits leaders of religious groups that sponsor about 1 million Boy Scouts against activists who want the organization to end its ban on openly gay Scouts and Scout leaders.
Neither side is happy with BSA's proposal to let local troops decide if they want to allow gay members.

I do. And I will not commit murder because some Internet tough guy twists the Word of God and orders me to kill.
Look for parents to remove their children from the BSA.
To BELIEVE in God is the STARTING POINT.
Intercessory prayer is powerful and God does hear!This cannot be repeated often enough. :) I'm off for my daily Rosary which is recited before Mass at our church, and included in my intentions will be the vote regarding the scouts.
Our son, who has mild autism, is in a troop that he is very much attached to. This is HIS main form of getting out and socializing with other boys, spending time with his dad, and learning life skills and having a place to go on weekends. They VERY much DO spend a lot of time camping, on trips, learning how to survive in the outdoors, etc. To end this would end what has been one of the happier aspects of his childhood — and there aren’t many.
Oh, and I can just see MY already horridly vulnerable special needs son exposed to the eyeballing of homosexual men. What a nightmare . . .
I say — what is to stop a close knit group of fathers and sons to just organize their own trips, independently, sans fags and/or their homo fathers? This is what I could see our group doing.
I do not understand why gays want to join a mainly Christian based organization, which vows allegience to God and Country — these morelocks are devoted to neither ...only to mocking God and destroying country.
God never commanded me to commit murder. You should get help.
many churches already have in-house alternatives to the Boy Scouts.
In the baptist church it’s called the Royal Ambassadors.
I believe new groups will be started up be loving parents. I’m afraid we are seeing the end of BSA.
This is just as logical as having heterosexual men in charge of Girl Scout Troops. On overnight campouts.
Apparently there are two board members pushing this. Since queerdom goes completely against what the Scouts stand for, I think these board members should be removed.
If the Scouts do allow homos into membership, it will doom the organization. What parent in their right mind would let their son anywhere near an organization that promotes a sick, perverted twisted lifestyle. Kids today have enough problems without this.
What is wrong with you? Do you honestly believe that if you keep insisting God is ordering me to go out and murder homosexuals I’m going to start believing you over the real God?
I think we can expect those church groups to expand.
The already have there own groups
Open Scouts for All been around since 1997
Baden Powell Service Association (BPSA) since 2003
Both are identical programs to the BSA and are in most states.
The homosexuals do not want inclusion. They want to destroy the BSA and the high moral standard it sets. The only way they can feel morally correct is if there is no standard above theirs.
As for the board of directors- they are just selling out for the money. My question to them is- How much does integrity and morality cost on today’s market?
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.
I agree to say no to their agenda and do not let them corrupt others, but as for sending them to hell, likely they are headed that way, but your attitude is way out of line. They need to be prayed for so that they can be saved and be set free from that kind of bondage to that kind of sin.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
James 2:8-13 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing well. 9 But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. 10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it. 11 For he who said, Do not commit adultery, also said, Do not murder. If you do not commit adultery but do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. 13 For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
Jude 1:22-23 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
Scripture does indeed teach that homosexuality indicates a certain level of depravity in one's heart but NOBODY is beyond redemption and that kind of attitude is NOT Christlike.
In the Beatitudes, Jesus says that looking on a woman to lust after her is the same as committing adultery with her in his heart. Anyone who is so judging others had better be sure they have been absolutely perfect in their thought lives before casting the first stone.
Jesus died for ALL and it is God's will that all come to repentance and a knowledge of the truth, and I'm pretty sure that when He said that He knew that it would include homosexuals.
I will never condone that kind of sin, any more than I would condone ANY kind of sin, but there but for the grace of God go I or you or any other person. They were made in God's image just as you and I are. They are as deserving of salvation and being set free as any of us.
For myself, I pity anyone trapped in that lifestyle and who has to struggle with that kind of sin. Separate the sin from the sinner.
Your attitude is reprehensible.
The thing is gays are already in the Boy scouts and always have been. I was in the scouts in the early 1970s and to me the kids who always were the biggest problems were the gay ones. Of course back then nobody knew they were gay, maybe some adults, but looking back now it’s clear as hell what they were, and what they were doing was throwing what they call “bitch snits” which BTW is another reason why gays cannot serve in the military, they are too emotional.
For example we had this one kid named Scott who acted very effeminate, back then we just knew him as a sissy, and getting this guy to do anything was like pulling teeth. For example telling him to get water for cooking and he would got to the lake instead of the spring, or telling him to get fire wood and he would get a couple twigs. And he would always go into these b*tch snits and hide in his tent.
This is EXACTLY what went on with Bradley Manning, I know it is. He went into a bitch snit because they were giving him orders and as a result he committed the largest security breach in US military history.
This is why gays cannot be allowed in ANYTHING that requires orders because they do NOT have the mental stability to accept them. But tell that to liberals, they just don’t care. When it comes to the military gay men are a different breed mentally from straight men, women even lesbians. Gay men cannot take orders. Maybe some can, but most of them can’t and what that does is put our military in danger which is exactly how the libs want it.
