300 BOY SCOUT FAMILIES LOSE SPONSOR, KENTUCKY MEGA-CHURCH BACKS OUT OF BOY SCOUT PROGRAM
http://www.libertynews.com ^ | may 28, 2013 | Eric Odom

Actions have consequences. In this case, the Boy Scout organization’s decision to even debate acceptance of open homosexuality has provoked Southeast Christian Church, a church of 30,000, to pull its charter of Troop 212.

Southeast Christian Church did not pull its sponsorship and involvement over the recent vote by the Boy Scouts to allow openly homosexual youth to participate. The Church pulled its sponsorship over the Boy Scouts organization’s act of debating the idea of allowing open homosexuality. This is confirmed by the fact the Church actually notified the Boy Scouts earlier in the year before the vote took place.

Hopefully, Christian churches will form their own programs, based on what BSA was before the homosexuals took over.

Good News for a change; hopefully all the RC churches will do the same.

I foresee new independent scout groups forming outside of the BSA. Something like Trail Blazers, or Religious Youth or what ever name sounds right. Not the Komsomol or the HJ.

Wherever homosexuals congregate, there are abominable crimes against children. Politically incorrect to state but true nevertheless. Next on the gay agenda will be to abolish age of consent laws. No real Christian organization can sponsor the Boy Scouts.

The BSA is pretty much done for as it has traditionally been.

A new group will form.

Hey, maybe the BSA can be that civilian army Obama wants soooo bad.

Bump.

The Boy Scouts blew this, bigtime.

Glad to see a large sponsor respond quickly.

Either get it together NOW boy scouts and repeal that nonsense, or find yourselves replaced.

Obviously the Boy Scout leadership gave no thought to the young men they would be hurting as a result of their poorly thought-out decision.

Too bad it is the young boys in scouting who will pay the price for the surrender to the queer agenda.

Those who voted to end the ban on homosexualism weren’t thinking of what scouting is all about when they voted to appease the pro-queer press and other critics.

They put the interests of critics ahead of the interests of the young scouts themselves.

The leadership of this church seems to be very cognizant of the fact once one is willing to discuss, debate or allow different points of view one has implicitly given credence to ones opponent’s position. There is absolutely nothing to talk about on the acceptance of homosexuality. Homosexual Sodomy violates, God’s Law, Natural Law, Common Law and in my lifetime State laws. The latter latters laws were removed only after the healthy portion of society became disinterested, disorganized and disintegrated into little atoms by hyperindividuality.

Right on the money. They want access to the boys so as to be able to recruit and molest them. They also hate the things BSA stands for so they seek to destroy the organization.

Bad news for them is that as the organization shrinks or dissolves their access to the boys will go away. "Where did all my boy toys go? How could this happen? We only wanted to teach them to give themselves over to absolute pleasure! What happened?"

The ultimate “kids damaged by a bully” case I’ve seen.

Gays want into the herd (BSA) so they can prey on youngsters.

The adults say hell no.

Gays bully any and every business that ever gave a dollar to the Scouts and scream “prejudiced” and “hate” - while practicing the very thing they accuse others of.

The Scouting headshed looses money. With their paychecks at risk, the headshed ‘does the right thing’ and caves on the Gay Agenda.

BSA is toast. Once gay Scouts are ‘normal’ - they will start to push to have gay leaders - all in the name of fairness.

Look to see of there are any Baden-Powell Scout troops in your area.

I was never a boy scout but I know that many boy scout troops had their meetings in church facilities. If churches do not want to sponsor the Boy Scouts because of their revised stance (forced by the courts of course)on gay participation, then could they form their own Christian scouts, or better yet, this formation should be coming from parents...who are not tax exempt. I know, as much as the RC church is against open homosexuality, they would never have the straightforwardness to so be as blunt as many evangel-ical churches.

That's one aspect but IMO they are attempting to give their way of life and their lifestyle a form of legitimacy by forcing a truly decent and legitimate organization to accept and therefore condone them and their aberrant and self-destructive lifestyle.

I too hope more church and other BSA sponsoring groups pull out of supporting the BSA now.

I was thinking about Scouts for Christ. It would be for boys and girls but separated by gender and focused on service towards others.

Hopefully, Christian churches will form their own programs, based on what BSA was before the homosexuals took over.

If they did so, this would be the likely battle:

The BSA, smarting from the massive financial and membership fallout from this horrendous decision, would become extremely aggressive toward competitors. Any vague similarity of alternative boy's organizations to the Scout's program would be legally attacked as a trademark infringement. This would be a legal firestorm in the making.

My personal recommendation is that groups withdraw from scouting without making ANY moves to mimic the old scouting model, for now. I hold out hope that the implosion will be so calamitous and complete, and rapidly so, that real conservatives can soon re-inhabit the old Scout brand anew, with a sodomite-proof resolve.

"Look to see of there are any Baden-Powell Scout troops in your area."

How would B-P Scouts be any better? They are already atheist and amoral regarding sexuality. This is a serious question as my charter is looking at alternatives. Others have recommended BPS too. I looked at their info, but it looks more like BSA's future than a return to traditional scouting.

I foresee new independent scout groups forming outside of the BSA. Something like Trail Blazers, or Religious Youth or what ever name sounds right. Not the Komsomol or the HJ.

The problem is, how can they compete with the resources that BSA can provide...and the problem is that if they do get sponsors, the gays will come right after them, as well. And schools won't support them....I remember growing up when Scouts will proudly wear their uniforms to school, not anymore. Our Troop currently meets at a public school.

I'm wrestling with that same decision, myself. I don't see the logic in punishing my son (it's not punishment, but he'd see it that way) because of the actions of an unrelated handful of loudmouthed deviants, clamoring for normalcy.

And, frankly, I'm not too concerned about "gay scouts"...it's the homosexual lobby's desired endgame of "gay scoutmasters" that really concerns me. "Gay Scouts" is just the camel's nose under the tent - that's why I didn't support it.

We're fortunate in that we live in a small, tight-knit, conservative community, so this decision is unlikely to have much of an immediate effect. Next year will be fine, likely the year after as well. Beyond that.......

Some of the other choices that I've considered are getting (more) involved; I don't need to worry about a gay scoutmaster if *I* am the scoutmaster. Also looking into serving on the committee to choose successors, re-organizing the troop, and also dropping Scouts entirely and going to an alternative program.

At this point, I just don't know. I've got the summer to chew it over and look into all the options. I damn the gay lobby, and I hate that I even need to consider something that frankly, 20 years ago, I couldn't have conceived of.

My concern is more with the reputation of scouting.

I remember growing up when Cub Scouts would proudly wear their uniforms to school...as a non-Scout, I would sometimes be envious of them.

These days you rarely see that.

Yeah, I posted about that, last week. Ours is the last generation where the term "Eagle Scout" means someone of integrity, who's utterly uncorruptable.

It's going to get turned into something that inspires a chuckle and a smirk, sort of like "Clinton and Lewinsky".

Which, I suppose is the gay lobby's endgame, anyway.

How exactly, do you explain this to a seven year old? "Well, the Scouts had these values. But they were inconvenient, and made some bad publicity for a few people, so the Scouts changed their values completely..... Well, yes, I know what I told you about 'integrity'..... Of Course, you should still have integrity.... No, I don't know why the Scout leaders didn't...... Well, yes, I said that they were people of integrity and should be respected and listened to..... "

And so on. I've not had this complicated conversation yet, and I'm not looking forward to it.
