Skip to comments.A Message From the Boy Scouts of America [Just Got Their Pathetic Fundraising Email]
Posted on 05/24/2013 5:55:28 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
The reasons you have supported the Boy Scouts of America for more than 103 years have not changed. We will continue to be a leader in youth development and our Scouts will continue to be committed to their communities. With more than 2.6 million youth members, last year Scouts collected over seven million pounds of food for the hungry and contributed more than 13 million hours of service to their communities, and more than 57,000 Scouts earned the rank of Eagle our largest class ever.
After embarking on months of comprehensive discussion and receiving an outpouring of support and feedback, the Board of Directors and key members of local council leadership voted on the following resolution:
Youth membership in the Boy Scouts of America is open to all youth who meet the specific membership requirements to join the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Sea Scout, and Venturing programs. Membership in any program of the Boy Scouts of America requires the youth member to (a) subscribe to and abide by the values expressed in the Scout Oath and Scout Law, (b) subscribe to and abide by the precepts of the Declaration of Religious Principle (duty to God), and (c) demonstrate behavior that exemplifies the highest level of good conduct and respect for others and is consistent at all times with the values expressed in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone. (emphasis added by SoFloFreeper)
The result of their vote determined that the Boy Scouts of America would adopt this resolution effective January 1, 2014. While we understand you may not agree with this decision we appreciate your continued support and dedication to Scouting and our young people.

Shelley and the rest of the Scouts can take their perversion and peddle it somewhere else. I will not support an entity that endorses and applauds homosexuality with open arms.
Of the present 2.6 millions scouts, I hope the number will drop to around a dozen or so . . . and crickets.
Boy Scouts of America, 2013: Cowards and Degenerates.
A disgrace to everything it once stood for. A disgrace to God and Country. Burn in Hell, BSA!!!
They know I don’t agree with it because I got a massive questionnaire from them...asking me how I felt about “What IF” situations in the scouts regarding homosexuality.
I said “NO” to permitting outspoken homosexuals to join, continue, or remain in the organization. The entire questionnaire was designed to find some excuse to celebrate the behavior and outspokeness of homosexuals.
I am one who believes we are to “love the sinner, hate the sin” person....this is NOT what the Boy Scouts were advocating. They were advocating NORMALIZING and CELEBRATING the behavior...
So that is how Craig Shelley knows I don’t agree.
I wonder what email they sent to the small number of parents and other financial supporters who said they AGREED with homosexuals in the ranks.
How can one require the Scouts to abide by the Scout Oath (be morally straight) and duty to God (who regards homosexuality as an abomination) yet claim that gender identity is irrelevant? The scout mis-leaders are trying to have it both ways, yet they are mutually incompatible and force the Scouts to live a lie. That is certain destruction for the Scouts.
“abide by the precepts of the Declaration of Religious Principle (duty to God)”
I wonder how in His name they justify this passage. You can’t have a duty to any god if you proudly defy his law.
It’s time to establish the American Heritage Boys.
Pretty presumptuous for the BSA to tell you, the recipient, that the reasons you supported the BSA in the past have not changed. It's almost an in-your-face opening line.
Two questions: Does this only adress members? At what age does a boy “know” he’s gay?
Bigger question - does this in any way address scoutmaters? That is the real problem. Where does this stand?
just for entertainment.
back in the day the guys talked about that sort of thing a lot ~ of course the red ants were just then getting settled down in the US and we all feared them figuring out how to move North.
>> While we understand you may not agree with this decision we appreciate your continued support
Go pack fudge, BSA. Not a nickle from me, ever again.
I heard an interesting interview on a local radio show today with a lawyer who has had some dealings with the Boy Scouts in the past. His take on this situation is that the Boy Scouts have made this change not for political reasons, but under pressure from major corporate donors.
Thirty pieces of silver will do it every time, eh?
‘I wonder what email they sent to the small number of parents and other financial supporters who said they AGREED with homosexuals in the ranks.’
I don’t know but they better have deep pockets and be very generous or I fear that this gentleman and MANY other professional scouts will be looking for work soon. And I could not be happier than if the entire organization was forced into bankruptcy.
I am an Eagle Scout, but my five sons will never be allowed to join these moral reprobates.
I personally will not be giving another dime to the BSA. I will also recommend that my children not to enroll any of our grandosn into the oorganization...as much as it pains me, and as much as I regret the loss of this once great organization.
The homosexual community is now going to recruit 16-17 year old boys to become open members of the scouting organization. I do not want my 12-14 year old grandsons going on campouts with them. Plain and simple. Not worth the risk.
My church, the LDS Church, will continue with the scout program within its own congregations until and unless they accept adult leaders who are homosexual. That is what the Church has indicated is its line. The Church teaches that homosexuals can be members of the church as long as they are celebate in these desires. IOW, they can have urges, but if they resist temptation and rely on the atonement of Christ, then they can be members in good standing as much as a heterosexual who does not commit fornication or adultery.
While I can understand this, and agree with it when it comes to young people who are serious about trying to overcome their lifestyle and affliction in a spiritual sense, and it is an affliction that tempts them to sinful behavior...I cannot support it within the scouts. I know that there will be people now entering the organization specifically to fill its ranks with these queers who have no intention of “repenting,” or overcoming their lifestyle.
I cannot and will not risk that set of circumstances on my own grandkids of I can help it.
Boy Sodomizers of America.
you can say that with a hey nonny... it’s these activists who insisted on being able to be “openly gay” in the scouts. how many scouts were “open girl chasers”?
The queers just wanted to put it in a little way this time.
They can take their perversion and go elsewhere. Anus screwing 101 doesn’t seem to be a scouts honor.
>> does this in any way address scoutmasters?... Where does this stand?
It’s only a matter of time before five out of ten scoutmasters will be sodomites. The faggot filth are relentless. And far too many in our society have been either seduced into going along or browbeaten into shutting up.
