Boy Scouts Defy orders to not wear uniforms in gay pride parade
NBC news ^ | Miranda Leitsinger

Posted on 06/02/2013 2:33:24 PM PDT by lastmomstanding

Boy Scouts and adult volunteers wore their uniforms Sunday as they marched in Utah's gay pride parade — defying a leader of the youth organization who had said they couldn't do so under the organization's guidelines prohibiting advocating political or social positions.

They should make new uniforms that have targets painted on the back of their shorts.

why would scout leaders let their boys march in a “gay pride” parade, in the first place?

GET YOUR BOYS OUT OF SCOUTS, ITS ROTTED OUT!

Get your boys into organizations that try, at least, to uphold some basic moral standards!~ or start one...

Interesting, since SLC lds said they are not supporting the homosexualization of the Boy Scouts.....oh wait, they didn’t say that never mind. They said something but not that.

So the scouts already have openly homosexual leaders? I thought just the teenagers were supposed to be able to come out of the closet.

I wonder if they had been doing this BEFORE the policy-change decision had been made.

I know that there were defiant scouts, scout leaders and scouting units before this year, but were they held at bay by the no-homo policy? Did this change really embolden them this much?

The Boy Scouts should just fold up shop.

The GSA went without a whimper when Planned Parenthood took them over, but the Boy Scouts have hung on honorably for decades.

But now it’s time to go.

When I was in the Scouts if a kid was suspected of being gay, he didn’t last long in the troop. The leaders had nothing to do with it either.

We have been told that the reason why all of this crap has taken place is that they want to be more accommodating to those who are gay.

Let's not be totally unaware of their aims.

The real reason has always been to dismantle that which has always stood for God and country.

I'd say they have been quite successful.

Well, 60 percent of BSA leadership.

Since it was a secret ballot, how do we know the vote was not rigged?

yes, form a new club or enroll your boys in an existing club or organization that attempts to teach and uphold basic moral standards

(there are some around here and there...)

and then look for some public-service-type law firm to file criminal charges with the local District Attorneys or Attorneys General... against any scout leader or official that attempts to teach young boys that homosexuality is just fine, an approved or okay “life style”.... charges depend on state you’re in but could be such as: :contributing to the delinquency of a minor” or “immoral communications with a minor” or “child abuse” or similar, depending on exact facts of what happened ....

make a few of these misguided scout officials answer in criminal court....once they’ve actually been caught teaching or preaching or leading boys astray...or worse...

but first things first, get YOUR boys OUT of scouts NOW and into any of the other organizations that still attempt to teach basic morality

Frankly, I think the LDS leadership is complicit in the destruction of the BSA. I think they want gay marriage nationwide so they can then leverage it into legalizing polygamy.

“The homos don’t want to be actual Scouts, they just want to wear the uniform.”

They also want to wear the little boys. NAMBLA isn’t just a fringe organization but a centerpiece of homosexual deviancy.

Was there ever a ban on homosexual boys? I don’t believe there was ever a ban. The part of the scout oath that refers to “morally straight” mean just what it says. The scouts now will allow an open homosexual who has sex with his boyfriend yet what would happen in a scout was found to have been having sex with his girlfriend? Will they kick out the straight scout for violations of being morally straight?

What insanity.

We had to know it was on its way. Get ready also for disciplinary actions, not against these ones that broke what remaining rules and standards there are, but against those that don’t go along with ‘progress’, when they aren’t interested in following the lead into doing things like this.

It’s sad that we have to deal with homosexuality at all. I will get flamed, but, things were easier when homosexuals were in the closet, and we didn’t have to deal with any of this.

Since the activities of scouting do not deal with sex identity or any of that, it’s unfortunate that the organization is now forced to deal with it. And, now that they allow openly gay scouts, pressures or lawsuits to force acceptance of openly homosexual leaders will happen. Count on it.

You could see this coming. This is why you don’t allow fags in the Boy Scouts or the Military. You can’t stop them from lying and joining, but once you “allow” them, then you get flaming outward demands of approval.

This was obvious from the start.

The Boy Scouts should fold and let some new Christian organization replace them that has the backbone to fight the fight without taking a penny of government money or being a charitable non-profit. The parents would never know the difference and you could set all the rules without tyrannical interference from government.

Of COURSE it was rigged. The vote would have never even come up if they knew they wouldn't get their desired result. It took a few months to come up with this theater performance after the outrage that followed the January announcement, but they eventually erected the facade. But we'll never know.

Just digest this for a moment.

Boy Scouts defy orders by wearing the traditional symbol of their organization. American boys were marching in a gay pride parade. There was a gay pride parade in Utah.

May God have mercy on all of us.

And then deny membership to homosexuals and get a civil rights/discrimination lawsuit slapped on you. Gay "rights" means allowing the right of people to embrace homosexuality but removing the God-given right of people to tell homosexuality, "go somewhere else."

Gay "rights" is a sophistry. It's about removing rights. When folks like Obama and Romney say they're "for" gay marriage and gay adoption, what they really mean is that they're for punishing churches, adoption agencies, wedding photographers, caterers, etc., that tell homosexuals, "Find some other church/adoption agency/photographer/caterer, etc., to do your event. We'll pass."

Government tyranny -- moral tyranny, as government does this because it deems it immoral to discriminate against homosexuals -- at its most deceitful.

This one isn’t difficult. The reason the BBSA did this was to keep the corporate payola coming in to the National Council. Those folks who work there have mortgagees to pay and executed their marching orders. We were sold out for thirty pieces of silver.
