Posted on 05/24/2013 7:06:05 PM PDT by rhema
Yesterday was a dark day for America. Delegates to a national Boy Scouts of America (BSA) meeting in Texas apparently voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to validate homosexuality among boys. We are outraged.
This is a betrayal of the highest magnitude. It's a betrayal of the boys in the Scouts' care. It's a betrayal of trusting parents. It's a betrayal of a 103-year-old institution that has molded millions of boys into men. It's a betrayal of truth and honor.
Finally, it's a betrayal of God, in Whose name the organization furthered the priceless worth of being morally straight.
The immoral campaign within the BSA to sell out America's youths on the altar of political correctness appears to have been motivated by greed for corporate dollars and fear of being "on the wrong side" of an increasingly coarse culture that not only rejects biblical truth but openly attacks it.
The fallout of this evil act will be devastating, especially in areas where fathers are rare and boys desperately need male role models, such as in the inner cities. Apparently, these boys are expendable.
The decision also furthers the false notion that people are "born gay" and have no hope of overcoming that particular temptation. The idea of "gay kids" is a tragic myth embraced by those who willfully ignore the profound moral, social and spiritual consequences of homosexuality. Also ignored are the many people who once believed they were born that way but like other sinners were healed by faith and went on to lead fuller lives.
Absent in the debate are the well-documented health risks associated with homosexual behavior, especially among males.

Institutions and money has been invested into this push for decades. Honestly I think it’s rather impressive how people have held out so far.
I don’t know how to counter such forces, so the best I do is just tune it out. 40 years of activism isn’t going to be reversed overnight.
The Boa Scouts
Boy Scouts of America
May 24, 2013,
I was in Scouting as a Youth. I have been a leader, including a Scout Master, and a member of our Scout Committee, serving as the Advancement chair on occassion. I have also donated to scouting my entire life.
As a result of your recent decision regarding openly gay youth being able to join scouting, I personally will not be giving another dime to the BSA.
I will also recommend that my children not enroll any of our grandsons into the organization...as much as it pains me, and as much as I regret the loss of this once great organization.
Part of Scouting is to be "morally straight." Those words have meaning. A gay life style is not "morally straight." Societal mores may change. But the truth does not...and you do not advance the truth by giving in to or accepting such behavior or inclinations and trying to call them "normal," or okay.
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, or any other youth exposed to such individuals on campouts. Plain and simple. Not worth the risk.
If you think this will not be discussed, and that such kids will not promote that life-style through conversations on such events...you are dilluding yourselves.
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. In other words, they can have urges, but if they resist temptation and rely on the atonementof 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 deviant lifestyle...for the reasons I just enumerated I cannot support it within the scouts.
I cannot and will not risk that set of circumstances on my own grandkids, or anyone else's if I can help it. And I can help it by not supporting either materially, monetarily, or with my time an organization that has decided to abdicate the moral high ground in order to avoid adverse public relations pressure from the homosexual community...which is exactly what is in play here.
How could you?
I will also post this at my own site.
They’ll keep winning until we change tactics.
As a former Scout, I am very disturbed by this.
I'm surprised more familes haven't pursued this option before, though I suspect a lot of them will now.
You counter it by using their tactics against them. Once you control the younger generation and indoctrinate them then its only a matter of time.
The first word I’ve been using is “COWARDICE.” That’s for their caving in to the forces of evil and deviancy. All my life I had the highest respect for the organization, but now I have only deep, dark contempt.
But, “BETRAYAL” is valid, too. As the BSA has betrayed everything it once stood for. It exists now as an indecent affront to all those who came before. They’ve spit in the face of their history and heritage. I hope the BSA and all those who committed this betrayal meet the ignoble demise that fits their vile action, and that it includes a one-way ticket straight to hell.

Months ago our church decided that if this came to pass we would dissolve our scout troop (yes, we have enough young folks to have our own troop) and start our own scouting program. We will be drafting a letter to the BSA giving notice of our intent and the reasons.
Enough is enough.
This is the only BSA I respect anymore.
It was a commie switcheroo. All they needed was some sort of gay element nosed inside to compromise it all.
They didn't need adult gay leaders.
What straight young man is going to want to join it now?
So, it dies. Just what they wanted.
It’s simply theft as the repugnant queer stick forces out the old guard. The homosexuals thereby capture the BSA endowment/treasury and assets.
Look up Robert Baden Powell, and the Seige of Mafeking in particular.
Scouting is a huge part of the whole anglosphere way of thinking in the end of the Victoria era. There is a reason we use Kipling’s jungle book - the same ideas and the same way of life.
It’s also why it’s under attack as an institution.

While I never joined the Scouts, (I am not a joiner)I had similar interests as a child and admired their principles.
After this horrible decision, I believe the Scouts are
destroyed as a principled organization.
They don’t explain why their different treatment between adult and under 18 gay males.
Is homosexuality immoral or not? They made a purely political move.
We will see how it pays off.
I am unclear, on, how a boy young enough to be a boy scout can be openly fag? That knowledge would imply statutory rape.
It’s all about corporate donations and corporate sponsorship. The BSA no longer cares about turning boys into Men. Being a Man in this society is politically incorrect. Now they can get their corporate sponsorships and turn sissies into girls.

LOL. That’s exactly how I will refer to them from now on. May all their support disappear, their organization close due to lack of participation, have to file bankruptcy, sued so that they lose all they were paid off by the LGBT groups, and the persons responsible be tormented by failed relationship and finances. That’s how I would curse them if it weren’t a sin. But it’s most likely what will happen given what I’ve seen happen to other scumbags in my lifetime. They will regret this but I feel they were probably cornered and pushed into a corner without too many options.
What was it that a famous first lady said?
JUST SAY NO!
Jeff they don’t care about your donations and support. They want sponsorships from major corporations. They’re not going to get them until they allow Homosexusl Scoutmasters but this is the first step.
They committed suicide. In essence they have sacrificed entire organization to the gods of Sodom and Gomorrah.
They will reap what they sow.
I remain astonished at how the majority of heterosexual people in America keep being bullied into caving to a tiny minority of Americans such as gays. Of the more than 300 million Americans occupying our country, it is estimated that ~4% are gay.
4% in a country where the majority is suposed to rule and, yet, we keep giving in to their demands. No wonder America is crashing. We’re a nation of wusses being “led” (and betrayed) by spineless, corrupt wusses who think that “getting along to get along” is a better policy that standing on principle.
And, we wonder why the America of Ronald Reagan’s “shining city on a hill” is rapidly sliding into the mud!
Like so many others, I was a scout in my youth. Had they accepted openly gay members then, I wouldn’t have bothered. I cringe to think what the BSA will be teaching future members. And, I shudder to think of those camping trips!
God, give us the strength, the fortitude and the courage to stand up to those who have betrayed our principles, convictions and ideals.
Yes, I know. But they will have to do so, like the Girl Scouts, with a hugely diminshed membership (both in terms of lost socut numbers and lost volunteers), and a completely tarnished and lost reputation for what they once were.
And, they will be subjugating more and more young men 12-14 to a grou of 16-17 year old gay scouts, who now can be comopletely forthcoming and open about it. Sooner or later it is going to lead to ugly consequences. Much more so than ever before.
“I remain astonished at how the majority of heterosexual people in America keep being bullied into caving to a tiny minority of Americans such as gays. “
In the BSA case the board appointed homosexual leaders based on monetary greed. Donations came with the price of placing these pedophiles onto the board and the board then made this decision.
now they will go after the Girl Scouts. will they be bullied enough to allow lesbos and male cross dressers to be admitted in the future?
In my church growing up, we had a boys organization similar to scouting called Royal Ambassadors. Its purpose was to engage kids in activities which emphasized being a missionary for Christ. It also included outdoor activities such as camping, wilderness skills and the like. Royal Ambassadors is part of the Southern Baptist tradition, but in most of the churches in which I have been involved over the last couple of decades, AWANAS has been the big youth organization. My feeling is that Christ followers should emphasize these groups with our children and forgo Boy Scouts.
I see this as an Obama move: Hitler had the SA, the Hitler Youth, the Brown Shirts. They were kids being led like the Boy Scouts by homosexual adult leaders. Once Hitler took total control he had the SS, the military special troops, kill off the SA.
Since virtually all of the scout troops and dens are supported by churches, all they would have to do is attempt to have a known homo become a member and get rejected. Then they would sue that church for--what is it they call it?--oh, I remember now, discrimination. Many "churches" would cave and allow the compromise in their ranks.
One can only imagine the chaos that would cause. I say we just sue the pants off the BSA--pun intended--the first time a child is assaulted on a camp-out, not the leader, but the BSA itself for allowing homos to join.
They made their bed, they can lie in it now.
Am familiar with the organization. We girls had GA - Girl’s Auxiliary. Women also had a group but I can’t remember their name. I do remember completing all the tasks up to and including getting my cape and scepter. Was a really big deal in our Southern Baptist church.
“how a boy young enough to be a boy scout can be openly fag? “
This is the great mystery.
How does he know he is gay? How has he demonstrated this? etc.?
They already have the Girl Scouts.

I was on the bubble about pushing my son into BSA. Now it’s a no-brainier. They can rot.
It will take state and local troops to tell the national to go pound sand.
This is an opportunity to see state action. How much funding does a local troop receive from the national organization actually?
How are dues collected? Retain the dues at state or local levels and see how fast these pantywaists fold.
I was a Boy Scout in my youth and had a discussion with my 86-year old mother about yesterday’s decision [she’s visiting my family].
She couldn’t bellieve that I disagreed with the decision and that she could not believe that I was “not tolerant” of gay teenage boys. After all, she said, “Its not like they are admitting gay Scoutmasters ...”
Tonight, we were watching the news [WJZ Baltimore] and a segment about the BSA vote ran on the air. The Baltimore Council vote 69% in favor of admittance. Then, the Council member who was interviewed added, “Now, we get gay Scoutmasters admitted ...”
I swear to God, my mother spit her coffee out her nose ...
Why are the gay scouts “openly gay?” Are they activists?
No, no. B stand for Bathhouse. The Bathhouse Scouts of Amerikkka.
Dilluding? You might want to correctly spell deluding. Otherwise I agree.
They’ve had the Girl Scouts since decades ago. Planned Parenthood in Texas—read all about it.
Competition in the market place is what made the USA great.
Start a competing organization like the “Patriot Scouts” which does not have homosexuality.
May the best group win and I suspect the loser will eventually be the Boy Scouts.
Early discussion of Baden-Powell's sexuality focused on his relationship with his close friend Kenneth McLaren.:217218:48 Tim Jeal's later biography discusses the relationship and finds that there is no evidence that this friendship was physical.:82 Jeal then examines Baden-Powell's views on women, his appreciation of the male form, his military relationships, and his marriage, concluding that Baden-Powell might have been a repressed homosexual.:103 Jeal's conclusion is shared by some biographers and disputed by others, but is not yet examined in any detail by other scholars.:6
In their customary style, homosexuals use the thinnest threads of conjecture to dispirit boys. It is a common technique. Refer, for example, to Wikipedia's biography of that other Powell, Enoch.
He doesn’t have to know he’s gay; he only has to be confused, as so many adolescents are. They’ll take care of the rest.
It’s about aggressive recruitment, just as in the case of sexuality “counseling centers” near high schools, and the proliferation of the GSA’s, Gay-Straight Alliances, on campuses everywhere.
