Say no to these people against Christ and send them to hell.

Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

If they vote for it, it’ll hurt more ways than one.

I can't understand how you can have "boy" scouts with known homosexual men involved....

but you can guess that some know it all liberal mom will think she is being oh so cool by allowing this....dumb arses....

now is the time for those truely religious to cling to like minded people....insulate your kids....insulate your lives....

They don't seem to be interested in forming their OWN group, do they? They would rather DESTROY the Boy Scouts...that is the gay agenda...destroy...destroy...destroy. Look at all the small businesses destroyed by queers...B&B's that refuse to perform sodomite 'weddings'...bakeries that won't prepare a 'wedding' cake for sodomites.

When will people learn to say NO to queers?

The article is so typical of liberal framing of every issue. It presents the vote as if there’s a real 50/50 split in the organization over letting homosexuals in a leaders.

Instead you have roughly 2% of the population demanding access to young boys, with perhaps four times that number supporting them. So at best its 90/10 against, yet the media presents this as if it were a real dilemma for most Scouts.

Imagine if this were a group of twenty something males demanding access to the high school cheerleaders’ locker room or a wolf asking to guard the sheep. We’d see it for what it is.

The end of the “BOY” scouts is very near. The disease of political correctness has become terminal for them and the queers will kill a tradition that made many boys into morally straight men and successful lifestyles.

It saddens me for I was also a boy scout when I was a boy and as I look around today, there aren’t many local scout troops left around here any more. The young boys of today have become too “domesticated” and enjoy a climate controlled environment along with plenty of video games to play at home. They have no aspirations to enjoy camping trips and rustic life along with how to survive in the woods if you had to.

It’s simply a shame to even think that your son could possibly be sleeping next to a queer scout or scoutmaster. Worse yet, in many cases, I remember cases where we took baths in a river or lake without clothes and never thought a thing about it.

Man! Have things changed!

“Representatives from both camps aren’t happy with a proposal to let local troops decide if they want to allow gay members.”

BULLSHIT! This is exactly how liberals operate: one “compromise” at a time, always appearing publicly displeased with the results, but grinning like a devil when the cameras aren’t on because they know the next “compromise” is just around the corner thanks to the spineless twits who lack resolve to stand against evil.

I’m so sick of the liberals wrecking one group after another. If this trend continues, I shudder to think what the American landscape will look like 10, 20 years from now after even more people from the older generations have passed on (due to age and, of course, Obamacare).

Wish I had a penny for every time I have heard, “unless we take a stand”. And yet the evil ways of government against the people and our children continues to grow and aggressively overrun the parents of those who disagree and even now are overrunning conservatism and Judeo-Christian peoples and families. These are evil times and God in heaven will bring down all who hate and mock Him. So America is becoming a communist country under the federal politicians and we continue to rant and rave and pick up ourselves from the dust as the monsters in government do their own will.
We need to pray that the Lord God of Israel return to us and destroy His enemies in high places who rule and destroy us and our children.

“When the devil comes in like a flood, the Lord will lift up a standard against him”.

II Chronicles 7:
7:12 And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.

7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;

7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

7:15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.

Less we forget.
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.

No wonder the left is anti-scouting.

As a District Commissioner I can tell you that we are very nervous about this vote. Many Charter Organizations are threatening to pull out. While they would be able to set a local policy, it doesn’t really protect their youth at Summer Camp where they may be camping with Troops with gay leaders and boys. Some have said they won’t allow their youth to attend Summer Camp, which would make attaining an Eagle Rank next to impossible. The consequences at the local levels are far reaching indeed.... could be a sad day today.... and a lot of work for me, which is never a good thing!

That may happen. Was at one of the Charter Org Churches last night and one of the congregation was asking a lot about this very topic. The Scoutmaster said they could try to have a Troop-only Summer Camp but that part of the overall experience would be lost and the burden would fall heavier on the parents and leaders to provide that concentrated of a program. Someone even having an alternate camp would invite legal challenges and protests. This is just a subtly planted nuclear bomb to the BSA.

Read somewhere on FR that a number of churches that sponsor troops say that if the BSA accepts gays they will no longer accept Boy Scout troops at the church run camps.

Never going to remove all gays. It has been around since forever.
It would be nice if it were re-closetized. The blatant flaunting of it is what is sickening and will (is?) tear down western society. People who show pride in this aberrant lifestyle is destroying America. The soviets(now the Russians ) were the ones who pushed this on us as a form of undermining of our society. You may have notice that the Putin administration has criminalized homosexuality in HIS Russia.

Back in the closet with ye, faggots.(but then leave them alone as long as they are not doing it in public, are pedophiles or are even teaching your children)

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.
