Apparently CNN viewers ar stupid. Yes has the lead.

I have contacted BSA National by phone and e-mail, my district rep and council CEO.

I have not decided if we will dissolve our troop of which I’m the Scoutmaster but we will not attend any Coucil activities or camps.

Should Foxes be hired to guard henhouses?

They don’t have the most reasonable reply, which is, “What business is it of yours? Who the Hell are you to tell the Boy Scouts what to do?”

Eagle Scout (1969), 12 years as a Scouter, consistent contributor to the local Council: All to be undone if this decision is made.

No more contributions.

Scouter uniform will be packed away.

Eagle metal will be returned to BSA National.

I believe a yes vote is anti homo and no is pro.

What could be more comforting to a parent of a 13 year old Boy Scout than to know that his 35 year old queer scout master, that is taking the Boy Scout Troop into the woods for a week, wants to blow their son {and vice versa}.

I only got as far as Webelos but have been Den Leader, Asst Cubmaster, Asst. Scoutmaster and Scoutmaster over the last ten years. One son is Life and just got initial approveal for his Eagle project, Son no 2 is Star.

I’m beyond disappointed and upset at an organization I’ve come to love and respect.

So they lost financial support from UPS and Intel. Big deal. Change happens. Lay off some staff, take a pay cut, raise annual fees a few bucks, go look for financial support from conservative leaning companies. Loud and strong-Stand for your principles. When all else fails-Stand.

One of the last remaining vestiges of decency in this country is about to succumb to the venal and evil that is the gay agenda. It’s a sad day.

No more contributions. . .agreed. Pack away Scout uniforms. . .agreed. Return Eagle metal. . rethink that one.

You earned it. . .let it be a memorial of what the Scouts once were. Under no circumstances could I give up mine. . . but I admire the sentiment and agree with it wholeheartedly. Just remember we are all fighting to renew our nation and to fight the Left. . . .I think we all believe that things can change for the better. . .if they do, and the Scouts stand tall again, I think you might regret not having your metal.

Thank you for your thoughts.
And I may change my mind when the time comes.

Yes, I did earn it. It’s value is in the memories of fun, friends made and skils learned. It is just a metal.

I need to decide whether it will serve a better purpose by conveying the severity of what they have done by it’s return, or sitting in a dark desk drawer.

Another poll design to achieve the desired, liberal result.

Should have asked if BSA should retain their long standing policy.

Then “Yes” would have meaning.

When you put it that context. . as a necessary sacrifice to convey a protest that is consummate with the severity of what the Boy Scouts are about to do. . .you may be leading the way for all of us. In fact, it may be necessary. Thanks sup7. . .I'm rethinking.

Its. 5:30 EST and it still says 61% over 39%. Sound suspicious?

This WILL be the death knell for BSA, mark my words!

We had an idiot editorial in the paper today by Petula Dvorak (Washington Post). In it she has the GALL to say, "Time for the Boy Scouts of America to earn their most important merit badge yet - righteousness.". This is EXACTLY what we know will happen in the end times - they will call good, bad and bad, good. Now, the BSA is going to be considered "righteous" if they permit homosexuals into the scouting programs and as Scout leaders. For the time being, at least, they will still not allow atheists. This is because, they say, Scouts must pledge to "be faithful to God". I wonder how this will be possible when something God calls an "abomination" is no longer shunned and must, instead, be thought "righteousness"? The Gay Mafia has struck again!

The new BSA will become the Brown-shirted SA to fulfill Obama’s dream of the National Civilian Security Force he so desires!

They already have the correct color shirt with the only thing missing is the proper indoctrination and sodomization!

It will be now more militant and look even more fabulous!
