That we even NEED to keep the pressure on them is grievous beyond words. This should be a battle that we don’t even need to fight. Pathetic.
Yes, fully agree. The two homo-activists must be removed from the board, with no apologies or compensation.
Big problem for BSA having corporate leaders on the Board of Directors. These guys won’t separate their “diversity” requirements instituted in business from the rights to freely associate (and thus not associate) in private. There’s a huge difference between working in the same office with a homosexual and allowing an individual who admittedly is aroused by someone of the same sex to go camping and otherwise be in close quarters and little privacy with young boys.
Hopefully when this comes to a vote and they lose, big time I pray, these two simply resign. Expect there to be repercussions to individuals who stand up - the Board will probably need to rely more and more on retired individuals to fill its positions, those who can afford to stand on principle without having their business damaged, which the left will attempt to do. Of course Chik Fil A proves the businesses can survive and thrive, just not that many with the willingness to stand up.
Absolutely...remember, the Devil was a "sower of discord." Some of the weaker members have obviously chosen the wrong side. The problem is that they may be weak, but they have the Federal Government and the media behind them. By May, there will either be an open "schism" in the Scouts, or there will be total capitulation, forcing those who don't agree to go off and form their own organizations.
Fortunately, I think there are a lot of creative people dedicated to the education of youth who might actually welcome the challenge.
Baden-Powell is probably upchucking in his grave even as we speak, however.
The issue is NOT complex!
Simple solution. Form your own non-profit charity and give them big donations from many like-minded others under the conditions that you state, in this case keeping their current policy on gays. (but keep the overhead low)
Talk is cheap.
If they lose all their donors (now) like me who dont want the policy to change , what you think their options would be on this? Only one.
Those who think this important should talk with their $$$.
I see this as a good sign. Having been involved in large organizations for a couple of decades I can say that the way to create a revolt or an upheaval is all-at-once on short notice, which is what I thought was expecting happen. The way to STOP that kind of take-over is to gather enough votes to table the key motion and buy time. When that happens the status quo usually comes out ahead on the next vote. It is important now however for defenders of the scouts to mobilize, get their ducks in order and make sure they overwhelm the next meeting, perhaps making a motion to take it up and the next full convention (which will totally kill it).
Not likely. It probably means the pro-homos don't have the votes to overturn the policy, so, instead of it being soundly defeated, they made sure to "table" it.
Live to fight another day and all that.
Randall Stephenson is next in line for the top chair.
These two need to be kicked out the door.
Wow, we really did not think that our members, leaders and charter organizations would respond so strongly against or attempt to push the burden of the decision down to the unit level.
Well we can’t tick or members off, and we dont want to have the gay nazis after us again, so we will come up with a face saving measure that kicks the can further down the road.
There is NOTHING complex about the issue! Abandon God and the beliefs of 5000 years of civilization, and see how many people continue to support scouting.
This is the scouting teaching moment, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
They may get the thirty pieces of silver but parents will vote with their feet, their time, and their children’s attendance.
Those two need to go.
Perhaps it is time to start demandming resignation petitions.
First they issue a statement as a group not as individuals.
Second they are not getting tons of donations from gays. They have a clear “no gay” policy, this is a no-brainer they aren’t getting donations from pro-gay groups or individual gays.
Third, gays are not going after businesses for donations to the scouts. Not nearly as much as to have BSA consider letting gays into scouts. The lack of stories in the libtard media is evidence (or lack of) because this stuff is what they live to print.
Fourth if that means donations go down, that means you make do with less and ask more from the donors that are with you. And plan additional fundraising events.
I think you need to get some numbers to show if they stay “no gay” will seriously hurt them. That’s the whole crux of your position and you have nothing to back it up except speculation. Since you’ve set your whole argument on money you ought to have some evidence that backs your claim.
Take a vote.
But really ... should it even come to that?
Shouldn't the directors have the guts to stand up and say "Not merely 'no', but 'HELL NO!!!!!'"
There is no 'complexity'.
It's quite simple:
Faggots like to bugger boys. It's what they do.
Therefore, faggots like to get into positions of social leadership, where they have access to and authority over boys.
Any organization of any sort that necessarily involves working with boys in large numbers absolutely MUST exclude faggots from positions of leadership.
Failure to do so WILL lead to faggots raping boys.
Yes. I will be applying as much pressure as possible.
In the meantime, I’ll be dumping my AT&T service completely for an alternative. All good conservatives should do the same, even if we have to resort to Dixie cups and string.
The obvious move should be to purge the board leadership of the Gay supporters and announce a policy of not accepting corporate monies. Instead, they should make a direct appeal for folks to make direct contributions of monies to the BSA and not thru their places of employment. The BSA fears the loss of funds more than the loss of moral posture. They took corporate monies and they became slaves to the corporations’ political whims!
If its become about the fear of a loss of corporate funding, then the BSA might as well close up shop!
local councils should start taking and anouncing votes that if the policy changes they are out.
lets wait and see, is what the BOD was BEGGING the local troups to do.
No is the time to be prepared.
Vote on the local level to reject any endangering change.
Vote to demand the resignation of the two instigators.
Bind the 1400 voting members to vote the way the membership wants by passing a binding voting resolution.
