Boy Scouts "Gays'R'us" Links: All recent FR articles
FR archives | June 8, 2013 | various

Posted on 06/08/2013 12:52:44 PM PDT by Albion Wilde

Bookmark this thread: here are most of the news articles recently posted on FreeRepublic regarding the Boy Scouts National Meeting in May that resulted in gay scouts being admitted to membership. They are listed from newest, June 4, 2013, to oldest, June 24, 2012. Although some articles posted were duplicates, their links are included if they carried more than a few comments.

These are not all the Boy Scout articles posted on FR; just the ones concerning the issue of so-called homosexual children being admitted to Boy Scouts. A few vanities and blog posts were not included, nor articles with bad links to a minor source.

If you scan the headlines from oldest to newest, you can see the progression of the situation, the news sources and the reporters that covered the story.

Same here. Once they turned homo, I didn’t care. However, the vote was public and I believe, some outside forces caused the vote to shift towards faggotry.

And I would play the sin where it belongs, on the men who committed the sin. . The only “original sin” was Adam’s, our common father. The Bible tells us that when God allowed the people to have a king, it was not that they had had success under the judges. They trusted Samuel, but not his sons. They found they could trust David, but even Solomon failed them.

Thank you for doing the research.

I just hate what this is going to do down the road, especially to boys already vulnerable to same-sex attraction/confusion.

Think of how the ecology people always want us to ask about the "sustainability" of development. Right. Tell me, is this sustainable? This wholesale deconstruction of sex, gender, marriage and family --- is it sustainable for even one more generation?

I gotta get away from this. I'm afraid that the sadness and pity is going to disable me. Know what I mean?

I certainly do.

The strong-arm tactics mentioned in the Breitbart article above at 5/24/13 have also been going on for a decade or more at the annual meetings of the mainstream Christian denominations by the same group of anti-family outlaws. Stacking the delegates, altering the expected agenda -- all kinds of tactics. Tell me this isn't being trained by a cadre of hostile takeover artists working for one-world secular domination.

Gays, more descriptively known as coprophiliacs, will not be satisfied until we return to the days of ancient Rome when male homos were allowed to use, buy, sell, and trade young boys. The worst form of child abuse, but hey, letting queers use young kids for fun and pleasure is all about who and what these perverts love. sarc and sickness. Homos must be monitored, not married, nor left in the presence of children.
