Skip to comments.MITT ROMNEY: GAY PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SERVE IN BOY SCOUTS
Posted on 04/26/2012 11:40:58 AM PDT by DesertRenegade
As support for gay mom and former Boy Scout troop leader Jennifer Tyrrell contines to pour in from across America, it's important to reflect on those who have been saying all along that moms like Jen should be allowed in the Boy Scouts. Including Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who said in a 1994 debate:
I believe that the Boy Scouts of America does a wonderful service for this country. I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.
Romney was a member of Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board at the time. Romney's belief that "all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts," echoes the opinion of over 146,000 People who have joined Jennifer's Change.org action calling on the Boy Scouts of America to end its long history of discrimination against LGBT people. Tyrrell was ousted as scout leader of her 7-year-old sons Boy Scouts troop simply because shes gay.

I don't know what Mitt Romney's going to do if elected, but Barack Obama is a Muslim Marxist right to the bone. I've seen what he could do to our nation in 3 years. He's got to go.
Politically, I'm somewhere to the right of Jesse Helms, but I will vote for the candidate that has the courage to run against Mr. Obama. Our republic is dying. Let's save it and do the fine-tuning later.
This is why the gay MSM has pushed Romney so hard.
It may be why the Republican Establishment is behind him.
effing disgusting. There was a reason why these fags are not allowed in the Boy Scouts because this is simply like handing the keys of candy store to a 5 year old kid.
We had a fag back when I was a boy scout and he simply could not stop injecting fag stuff into the activities. It was that simple.
People should get used to hearing this:
We tried to warn you about Mitt. You just wouldnt listen.
I say if that lesbo Tyrell wants to head a BOY Scout troop, more power to her...Just don’t let her near a GIRL Scout troop.....
Like you would NEVER let Bawney Fwank near a BOY Scout troop.....
“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue.” - Mitt Romney
A 7 year old is not in a Boy Scout Troop. He is in a Cub Scout Pack. Don’t they ever get tired being incorrect?
I’m writing in the Sarahcuda. Anyone in with me?
What the hell are you people smoking?
“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue.”
You don’t have to look any farther than the Catholic priesthood sexual abuse scandal to know that allowing homosexuals to be Scout leaders is a very bad idea.
What is satire anymore? There is no need for satire or fiction since the truth is even more strange.
I was a scout when we had MEN for leaders. MEN who had been to war, MEN who knew how to lead and MEN who knew how to make us able.
I tried to work with scouts when my son came along but the metrosexual revolution namby pambies made me vomit. The parents who threw their kids out at the curb for baby sitting and to hope someone else might do what they wouldn’t do. The masses of single mothers looking for a father figure and the sad effeminate boys who needed one. Then there were the dykes who were weaseling their way into all manner of things and the idiots who thought you must go to woodbadge and training led by these, these wretched things.
I was staying with scouts for my son and he was staying in it for me. We both made the admission to each other that neither one of us was enjoying it and so we quit and just did our thing together... it was much better that way.
Women do not belong in Boy Scouts but I’m not sure anybody does anymore the way it is. Very sad.
This world is not my home.
>>These fools should put their children under this fool.<<
Better than under a burkah....
Good luck with your fine-tuning when you can't get the GOP to lay off the dirty tricks and rule changes that keep conservatives out.
It boggles the mind why anyone, much less Romney, would ever even consider introducing some kind of sexual element into the Scouts. This is truly insane. Let kids be kids without pushing some perverted agenda on them. This was either blatant pandering by Romney, or he is truly void of any values. Either way, we’re doomed.
Sure, truly gay people would be good for the boys.
Homosexual perverts, not so much......
/ “ My decision keeps being confirmed. Thank you, God. “ /
Isn’t that the truth! It is going to get harder and harder for all the easily intimidated “fear” voters to justify their vote for Romney!
This has to END. It should end with us and end now, trusting God for the rest.
Capitalists and Christians are no longer a majority, nor in charge. We learn now that they haven’t been for decades, we just didn’t realize it. We do now.
The public schools have won.
I’m with you
>>What the hell are you people smoking?

Shhhhhh, you’re not allowed to actually read the article and tell the truth.
"I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.
The first sentence I agree with; Mittens supports the right of the BSA to decide what it wants to do. Cool. Right answer. Second sentence; HIS FEELINGS that all people should be able to participate. Romney is playing both sides of the issue as always, but he's talking feelings not legislation. IMHO I don't have a problem with adult Lesbians being associated with the BSA since they don't go for boys. That doesn't mean all gays are child molesters, but all male child molesters that prey on boys are gay. But if the BSA, a private organization, says no to gay leaders I am 100% behind their right to do so.
