Mitt Romney Comes Out in Support of Homosexual Boy Scout Leaders, Members
Christian News ^ | August 6, 2012 | Heather Clark

Posted on 08/07/2012 6:36:10 AM PDT by xzins

A spokesperson for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has advised that the former Massachusetts governor disagrees with the Boy Scout’s current policy prohibiting open homosexuals from serving as members and leaders.

According to The Associated Press, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the news outlet in an email that Romney still stands by his beliefs that homosexual men should be able to serve in the organization. She specifically noted that Romney had outlined his views in 1994 during a political debate, and that his stance has not changed.

“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” Romney stated during the debate. “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

As previously reported, last month, the Boy Scouts of America issued a statement reaffirming its policy prohibiting open homosexuals from joining the organization.

“The committee’s work and conclusion is that this policy reflects the beliefs and perspectives of the BSA’s members, thereby allowing Scouting to remain focused on its mission and the work it is doing to serve more youth,” the statement said. “The review included forthright and candid conversation and extensive research and evaluations — both from within Scouting and from outside of the organization.”

The decision to reiterate and reaffirm the Scout’s current policy followed two years of deliberations from an eleven-member committee comprised of Boy Scout executives and other volunteers who represented “a diversity of perspectives and opinions.”

When all was said and done, the committee concluded that the restriction served as “the best policy” for the Boy Scouts.

The current policy reads, “While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.”

Mitt Romney also recently reiterated his support for homosexual adoption. This past May, in an interview with Neil Cavuto of Fox News, he explained that while he is against the concept of homosexual “marriage,” he does believe that homosexual couples should be able to adopt children.

“[I]f two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child, in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something that people have a right to do,” Romney outlined. “But, to call that ‘marriage’ is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word.”

He had first outlined his position on the matter in 1996 while talking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

“Well, they are able to adopt children,” he said. “I’m not going to change that.”

Prior to Saul serving as Romney’s press secretary, Richard Grenell, an open homosexual, filled the position.

Every time I edge a little closer to voting for Mitt, he rudely shoves me away.

Like pedophiles, he likes to get close and personal. But in all seriousness this position should not surprise anyone. I suspect that with enough time he will eventually out himself.

Let them keep thing this. I will ENTHUSIASTICALLY vote for Romney and am encouraging all my friends and relatives to vote. The survival of our Republic is at stake. Romney may not be my idea of a conservative candidate, but when you have the choice between the Antichrist and anyone else, you don't vote for the Antichrist.

100% of male pedophiles who prey on young boys are HOMOSEXUAL.

I have been repeatedly trying to make that point to my enlightened friends.

Few things, or behaviors in life, can show such a direct correlation.

The only way to fix the problem is to run a Conservative candidate. As long as you are running an Obama clone, those Obama voters who'd like to vote for a Republican this time won't really have a choice in a Romney candidacy.

They'll simply not vote.

To chew away at the Democrat's numeric edge in this race we will need to peel off a part of a large faction.

That does not seem to be the intent of the GOP-e. They are, in fact, lining themselves up for one of the great defeats of all history.

Your boy Santorum sure likes Mittens...
"In a few short days, Republicans from across this country will decide more than their party's nominee. They will decide the very future of our party and the conservative coalition that Ronald Reagan built. Conservatives can no longer afford to stand on the sidelines in this election, and Governor Romney is the candidate who will stand up for the conservative principles that we hold dear," said Senator Santorum. "Governor Romney has a deep understanding of the important issues confronting our country today, and he is the clear conservative candidate that can go into the general election with a united Republican party." -- Rick Santorum

"a guy who has gone through that pressure cooker, who has developed a passion, who understands why he's a conservative and understands the issues, how they weave together. Santorum added that conservatives are "about traditional values and a traditional way of American life" and that Mitt Romney "understands that, it's not just in his head anymore, it's in his heart."

"I like him. The time I spent with him, he was a gentleman. He's very sincere." -- Rick Santorum

Both the major candidates now are Acolytes of the AntiChrist.

The Antichrist, in fact, isn't currently running for office ~ mostly since he doesn't need to you know. His acolytes are a different sort of business. They have to feel wanted.

Santorum, like every other registered candidate, signed a pledge to support the party's nominee.

That's the way it is.

Now, to deny Romney the nomination ~ first, get a place to meet. Second, get enough delegates to attend the meeting that Romney can't get the nomination.

Restart the party.

Presumably we can do this lawfully.

they sure understood what he meant by those lines.

ABOs in denial should read that poster/flyer and think about the words that he has just reaffirmed.

He’s had nearly 20 years to reconsider them, to revise them, to recant them. He’s got a conservative wing in his party that will vote or stay home, and he gets a chance to make a statement about the boy scouts because a court has upheld their right to choose their own rules.

So what does Mitt do?

He confirms those old, gay agenda words.

With that much time to reconsider, one can only see this as doubling down.

Conservatives — even ABOs — should pay close attention.

True conservatives may see it that way, however, with the persistent and ever present public pressure on the BSA to modify their position, his public position is on the wrong side of this issue. Liberals, queers and their supporters will see it as one more “ally” in their quest to destroy the BSA.

Just more “dominoes” falling in line with the queer agenda to open up a target rich environment for queers.

At what point will the public pressure from queers and their hetero supporters become too much for the BSA to resist? Where’s the tipping point?

A Romney spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, said in an e-mail that this remains Romney's position today.

What was quoted to the Romney camp? Was it the part about supporting the Boy Scouts deciding their own rules, disagreeing with their policy or both? See, we don't get a fresh quote here. We're asked to accept the word of the AP (or homosexual bloggers) that they're truthfully representing the Romney campaign.

"Trust but verify" used to be a motto, now it's shoot first and keep shooting in the circular firing squad until Obama wins again.

I want to see Romney’s lips move saying that he supports gay men and woemen serving as leaders in the Boy Scouts.

Here's your chance to see Romney say it:

Romney in 1994

This is the 1994 comment, when Romney was on the National Executive Board of the BSA. I'm not aware of anything directly from Romney saying this is still his position, except for a quote attributed to his campaign spokesman.

Big surprise, people don’t like his honesty if they disagree with his position.

Promoting homosexuality is the ONLY thing he has been consistent and honest about in his entire political career.

Claiming Romney, a man that flip-flops like Bill Clinton, is honest is the most absurd comment I have seen in quite some time.

Which is more proof of the stupidity of ABO crowd, who are deluding themselves in thinking Romney can pressured to the right. It's not going to happen. He will be a disaster that will move the nation to the left and will cost Republicans the gains they made in 2010. It doesn't take a lot of brain power to comprehend that.

“No one, and I mean NO ONE, has the RIGHT to adopt a child. The ONLY one in an adoption with rights is the CHILD. It is the duty of the government to protect those rights. Please explain how this is done by purposefully denying a child either a mother or a father.”

Officially, the post of the decade.

No one, outside of Jesus Christ, could have put this any better.

All children deserve a mother and a father. Sadly, they end up with far less than half a loaf.

Yes, exactly. Obama’s Chicago operation: “Neutralize FreeRepublic” is in full force. I can’t believe they think we are falling for this. Only the feeble minded would think supporting Obama advances the cause of freedom. The last group to fall for that was the Ralph Nader voters in Florida that gave Bush the election in 2000 and Perot in ‘92. It will be a generation before either side falls for that lame trick again. Meanwhile we are powering by the lefties in the battle for the WH, Senate and House. That will cause the Pro-Obama trolls here to really start squealing. The farther they get behind the louder the will get.

This nation, that was absolutely stupid in 2008, will have been found to have wised up on November 6, 2012. This place, not so much over the years.

This is one of the few places where some conservatives have figured out it is a bad idea to vote for a Republican that will move the nation to the left.

It took me voting for both Bushes before I figured that out. But, at least I did and I don't intend on voting from someone more dishonest and liberal than George W. Bush. It's political suicide.

The lesser of two evil strategy is absolutely moronic.

Goode might very well decide the election in Virginia.

Due to that, he’ll be getting lots of press in the coming days. That will probably get his name on more ballots.

However, you are not entirely read into the process. The CP was on 40 ballots in the last election.

The process in states is different, but one can (1) get on the ballot, or (2) be an authorized write-in candidate. Those are separate items.

(2) is easier to achieve, so you can bet Goode will be available as either a name on the ballot or as a write-in candidate.

Wasn’t it Murkowski who proved the validity of a write-in campaign?

I can't find much to fear here:

“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” Romney stated during the debate. “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

Essentially, he is saying he doesn't discriminate and BSA has the right of freedom of association and can decide its membership as it sees fit.

“[I]f two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child, in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something that people have a right to do,” Romney outlined. “But, to call that ‘marriage’ is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word.”

From a legal and traditional standpoint, he again isn't discriminating or favoring by saying that two consenting adults can enter into a legal contract to do something that isn't illegal.

And he's right that domestic partnerships aren't "marriage" and shouldn't be legally referred to as marriage as we traditionally, historically have defined marriage.

Based on these quotes, he's seems more of an advocate of the Bill of Rights, as far as that goes, and not so much a supporter of gay rights or someone pushing that agenda.

“Boy Scouts has always billed itself as a Christian organization.”

Sorry, not correct. The BSA is part of a movement started in 1907 in England called the World Scouting Movement.

Belief in God, a supreme being, is all that is required. In fact, atheists are not eligible to join. Agnostics, on the other hand, fill their ranks.

The BSA actually offers religious medals for Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Judiaism, Catholicism, and Protestant Christianity.

A Scout is Reverant, not necessarily Christian.

Why does this A$$hat keep loading on the obstacles to me voting for him? As I have posed repeatedly - my heart is very much against voting for Romney. I have been blasted for that viewpoint, being told basically that if I don’t vote for Romney, I am reelecting Obama...

And indeed, I have been holding my breath and waiting for the VP pick... but in the meantime, he piles on this crap...

And lest we forget - the LDS “church” (i.e.- Mormons) teach and preach against homosexuality... So it sounds kind of like Romney is about as much a practicing Mormon as Pelosi is a practicing Catholic... Only when it is convenient and politically expedient...

And next week, Romney’s campaign will release a plan for legalizing homosexual marriage across the nation... (I hope this is a joke).

We already know Romney is soft on abortion.

He is apparently soft on the homosexual issue

He hasn’t really put forward much on the whole illegal immigration debate (won’t be as big of an “issue” after Obama makes a couple million “legal” just before the election).

And of course - his record on socialized medicine... I don’t foresee him supporting a full repeal of ObamaCare. He can talk a big game - but his record speaks far louder.

With “news” like this - it is about time for the Freeper Romneybots and the others (ABO crowd in particular) to shut up.

You like raising taxes and RomneyCare II?

1. He will not change the tax system but will get rid of the "loophole" called "mortgage deduction". In other words, he will raise my taxes. And he found lots of those "loopholes" and "fees" to use when governor of Massachusetts.

2. Do you think he has said he will "repeal ObamaCare"? Not quite: specifically he has said "it's important for us to repeal and replace Obamacare". Get that...repeal AND replace. It's on his own website about 4 paragraphs down on this page: http://www.mittromney.com/blogs/mitts-view/2012/06/romney-i-will-repeal-obamacare
