Boy Scouts Knuckle Under to Homosexual Agenda

One of the last bastions of decency appears to be caving to the relentless onslaught of liberalism:

The Boy Scouts of America, one of the nation’s largest private youth organizations, is actively considering an end to its decades-long policy of banning gay scouts or scout leaders, according to scouting officials and outsiders familiar with internal discussions.

Actually, it never banned homosexual scout leaders. It only banned the sort of people who want everyone to know they are homosexual. Effectively lifting this ban by leaving it up to local sponsoring organizations opens the door to militant deviants who will become scout leaders simply to advance their agenda and to defile something clean, which is apparently a prime motivator for the belligerently homosexual.

Inevitably, some deviants will exploit the BSA’s shameful capitulation to put themselves in a position to molest children, just as the Catholic priesthood was infiltrated by perverted degenerates. There will be appalling scandals, shattered children, children infected with AIDS, lawsuits — all of which the same media that has been browbeating the Scouts for years will use as further ammunition to destroy the organization, just as pedophile priests have been used to propagandize against the Catholic church. Nothing that even reminds a liberal of wholesomeness can be allowed to survive in fundamentally transformed America.

So much for the part in the Boy Scout Oath about remaining “morally straight.” Moral straightness has fallen out of favor.

It is bad enough that our civilization is dying. Why does it have die so disgracefully?

The values are timeless. Apparently the BSA isn’t.

    The Boy Scouts will shrivel and die as a result of their decision. Major sponsoring organizations will not tolerate homosexuals as leaders, and will not be bullied into accepting them.

  • Jeanettesca

    I have two young sons who are just about old enough to join Cub Scouts. Not anymore they aren’t! I really don’t care about the gay thing – if you want to be gay, then be gay and shut up about it – but I wouldn’t send my daughters on a camping trip where they are supervised only by straight men. Likewise, I won’t send my sons out in the wilderness with gay men.

  • modd kenwood

    but but but homosexuals are BORN that way! they’re not interested in recruiting young boys!!!!
    liberalism never sleeps.

  • http://newrebeluniv.wordpress.com Professor Hale

    Why don’t these organisations ever just close their doors instead of surrenduring? Is the money that good?

    Girl scouting has become a bastion of liberalism for years. Why allow the Boy Scouts to become a tool for the other side? Just disband them now.

  • StanInTexas

    So the BSA is considering putting people that define the entirety of their existence by their sexual preference for other males into a situation where they will be alone for extended periods of time with young boys.

    What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

    If this change comes to pass, I am finished with the Boy Scouts!

  • dan

    This isn’t America anymore…it died when
    political correctness became the standard of society
    and morality and common sense were outlawed

  • Tchhht!!!

    From the BSA website:

    “Currently, the BSA is discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation. This would mean there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation, and the chartered organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with each organization’s mission, principles, or religious beliefs. BSA members and parents would be able to choose a local unit that best meets the needs of their families.”

    Make each unit responsible for who get in and who doesn’t. Sounds like a cop out to me.

  • Tax Slave

    Prof. Hale,
    I heard that some Roman Catholic adoption agencies did just that; close their doors rather than place children with homosexual couples.

  • Tax Slave

    Will the BSA remove “…and keep myself morally straight…” from its oath?

    As a former Scout, I am ashamed.

  • http://reaganiterepublicanresistance.blogspot.ca Reaganite Republican

    As a former Scout (Life), I’m disgusted of course

    ‘Webelos’ takes on a whole new meaning – in reality, this will mean the end of the Scouts… except as maybe some metrosexual training thing, making baskets like Brownies

  • StanInTexas

    Professor Hale, the Boy Scouts have been around for over 100 years. They should not disband (which is the point of this attack), but fight for their beliefs and values. The fact that they may not shows that the people currently in charge of scouting should be removed from office with extreme prejudice!

  • http://www.christianitytoday.com/ch/131christians/activists/wilberforce.html Wilberforce

    I’ve still never received a good answer from any prog about this: Why on earth do these activist groups spend SO much money just to have the privilege of a place among the ranks of America’s young boys? I mean, they must be hoping to get some proportional payoff for money spent? Why not fight so vociferously for entrance into other innocuous civic groups?

    Hmm….maybe I’ll come up with the answer if I think just a little more.

  • StanInTexas

    Wilberforce, I have a hint for you…

    Just posted over on Facebook by talk show host, Steve Deace ( http://www.stevedeace.com ) on this very topic. Excellent response.,br>

    You cannot serve both God and mammon. The Boy Scouts have spent a lot of money fighting the homosexual lobby in court for years, and have seen pro-sodomy corporations pull their funding for taking a righteous stand. Money almost always makes people go weak in the knees, which is why next to salvation Jesus spoke more on that subject than any other in the New Testament. Caving on this issue will likely refill the Boy Scouts’ coffers with that lost revenue, but it will also deplete their ranks at least somewhat. That’s because Christians have a tendency to not fight this as loudly or via litigation as the other side does, but usually they just walk away and wash their hands of organizations that do this. See all the dying mainline pro-sodomy Protestant denominations for the best evidence of what I’m talking about. It will also ultimately lead to competition as a more traditional version of what the Boy Scouts used to be will eventually emerge as well. These short-term sellouts never pay off…ask Adam & Eve and Judas. They always end badly.

    “Why does it have die so disgracefully?”

    Because there are so many working so relentlessly and so obessively to tear it down in as humiliatingly manner as possible.

    They push and push and push and push and eventually resistance folds.

    Power flows from will. In this stage of Western Culture, the will to destroy is apparently stronger than the will to preserve.

    I agree the the BSA is close to a end its a shame really. I was a scout and it was a good experience. But the leftist war on America Christian beliefs and its Freedom loving values has been relentless. But for those of us that are trying to hold back the tide of socialism do not have to give up with this set back. I know parents whose children belong to scout type groups in there church, and who says that a group of well known and trusted parents could not form a scout group in their own neighborhoods or communities. Hell take your kids camping, hunting, fishing and maybe your kids friends or two. F the leftist they will always be on a frontal attack we just need to flank them and keep them off balance.

    MY TWO GRANDSONS AGE 9 AND 7 WILL NOT BE JOINING THE BSA ANYTIME SOON. I GUESS THAT MAKES ME HOMOPHOBIC, RIGHT?

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    If you’re still supporting United Way, you’ve been supporting abortion and homosexuality for a long time from Boys/Girls Club, Girl Scouts, etc. Find one clean morally straight organization and support it while keeping an eye on it and look for equivocation in their denials such as:

    ‘No United Way funds are currently used, or have ever been used to support abortion services. (However) Several United Way partner agencies provide professional family and individual counseling services that include professional counseling on pregnancy-related problems.
    United Way funded programs through Planned Parenthood include community health maintenance, e.g. communicable disease prevention; medical care service; family planning; health education; public awareness services; and family preservation and strengthening services, e.g. counseling and family life education.
    Nationally in 2008, local United Ways distributed an estimated $1.9 million to Planned Parenthood agencies.’

    Any finances being donated to Planned Parenthood (even if not specifically for abortion services) will free up more of their money to be used toward abortion services.

    Decades ago the BSA realized that they had a significant and growing number of scouts being sexually molested by adult males. Being a responsible organization, the BSA investigated this matter. What the BSA learned is that it was the scout leaders responsible for most abuse. They also learned that homosexuals and bisexuals, while making up 1-3% percent of the population, are involved in about 10% of male-on-male molestation, meaning thay they are about 3-4 times more likely to molest as compared to heterosexuals.

    So the BSA, wisely and prudently, banned homosexuals from serving as scout leaders.

    If the BSA does alter its policy as to gay scout leaders, then those chapters of the BSA that opt to allow gay scout masters will find in time a rise in male-on-male molestations. And at some point they will be sued. And in the discovery process all the documentatioon the BSA has on the proclivity of homosexuals to molest boy scouts will come out. And then the BSA will be sued into oblivion because the BSA’s own documentation identifies the danger of having gay scout leaders – and the BSA will have failed their responsibility to protect their scouts.

  • Joe

    Next up: The Boy Scouts will be sued out of existence by former scouts who will come foward and admit they were sexually abused by their scout leaders and now are being prodded by greedy trial lawyers with dollar signs for eyes. (see Catholic priest scandal)

  • M.Wilson

    And to top it off, the the lawyers who will sue them for the consequences of lifting the ban will be the exact same ones who sued them for having the ban in the first place.

    If they do cave, the only thanks they will get is more lawsuits and less funding. You can’t compromise with someone who wants you dead, they’ll just turn around and stab you in the back.

  • Jeanettesca

    This is yet another example of the left working to take down any organization or program that teaches personal responsibility, honor, integrity, hard work, morality, respect, patriotism… all those traits the left hates. It’s not even about any gay men who might want to be scoutmasters, it’s about destroying the core beliefs our country was founded upon.

    Conservatives never fight as dirty as liberals, partly because of the aforementioned sense of honor and integrity. But the sad fact is we’re losing this fight. So, what do we do about it? And I’m asking honestly because I really don’t know. We can gripe on message boards all we want, it doesn’t change anything.

  • Bee

    Is there a fence somewhere we can toss our merit badges over?

  • John Lewis

    In Britain “scoutmaster” is a synonym for “homosexual paedophile.” That was the case, a generation ago. I doubt that there is much left of the scouting movement there anymore.

  • JNN

    Why won’t the BSA say no. The so-called pressure is nothing but a bunch of whiners.

  • Jimbo

    “On my honor” is the part that riles progressives. “Honor” is a dirty, dirty word to them. Lying is crucial and openly encouraged in liberal ideology.

    Actually, the pedophiles who make up the gay lobby have been infiltrating the Boy Scouts since the turn of the century.

  • Clingtomyguns

    I can’t tell you how personally sickened I am by the BSA’s anticipate moral capitulation, so sick I could vomit.

    There is nothing sacred to liberals, and there never has been. All decency and morality that ever existed in the country must be extinguished on the altar of political correctness. No one must discriminate between right and wrong, moral and immoral.

    Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, offers his take on the announcement:

    “This is what’s happening,” he said on American Family Radio Monday afternoon. “The homosexual activists — you know they succeeded in taking down the military with Barack Obama’s help — now they’ve been targeting the Boy Scouts using their allies in corporate America, where they get into the HR departments and they’ve been pressuring them like UPS [and Merck Foundation], even though a Gallup poll just out shows that a majority of Americans agree with the Boy Scouts’ position.”

    Randy Sharp, director of special projects for the American Family Association, also alludes to the Scouts’ oath. “The BSA, for years, has had character and integrity and has stood firm on moral values,” he remarks. “If they reverse this policy, then what they’re saying now is that to remain ‘morally straight’ isn’t as important as they’ve been saying for the past 100 years.”

    “You’re signing a death warrant when you say you’re going to allow open homosexuals to participate in a program with young boys,” adds the former Scoutmaster.

    LaBarbera agrees. Parents, he says, do not want homosexual Scoutmasters going with their boys on campouts. “And you don’t want homosexual Boy Scouts either because you don’t want to have one homosexual Scout going around telling everybody about his homosexuality and how he’s out and proud and everything. You don’t want that influence of deviant sexuality among the boys itself.”

    http://www.onenewsnow.com/culture/2013/01/29/a-plea-to-scouts-don%E2%80%99t-let-the-%E2%80%98bad-guys%E2%80%99-win

    Data reveals that a disproportionately high percentage of “gay” men (like CNN’s Don Lemon themselves were once molested as boys by an adult homosexual pedophile (or by an older boy). Furthermore, parents do NOT want sexually-confused (openly ‘gay”) boys spreading the message of “out and proud” homosexuality in their son’s troop. This includes the danger – already realized in the BSA – of boys making sexual advances on other boys. The BSA was right to keep homosexuality OUT of Scouting. Sadly, this new proposal welcomes it in.

    This pro-homosexual capitulation teaches boys the WRONG lesson: that upholding moral truth is less important than bowing to politically correct trends that dishonor God. For decades the Scouts have been targeted by LGBT activists merely for upholding their own interpretation of a creed teaching boys to be “morally straight.” They suffered for doing good, and went all the way to the Supreme Court and won (in 2000), preserving their liberty to live by their own beliefs. To cave in now rewards the bigoted Homosexual Lobby and teaches boys that MONEY is more important than morality – indeed, even more important than Truth itself.

    Lastly, Americans must recognize that Corporate America has become a powerful force for anti-Christian sexual immorality, in the guise of “diversity.” In a truly diverse and tolerant society, the Scouts would be free to operate according to their faith and moral precepts. How tragic, but not surprising, that major corporations now lead the way in advancing radical sexual/gender ideologies and destructive behaviors that violate God’s will.

    The pro-homosexualizing enemies within Boy Scouts: Two morally bankrupt corporate CEOs who sit on the board of the BSA — Randall Stephenson of AT&T and James Turley of Ernst & Young — have worked to end the ban, selling out the Boy Scouts from within. Sadly, Stephenson is next in line to become the national chairman of the Boy Scouts.

    Thanks to the gay mafia, the BSA has lost sponsorships — most recently from the Merck Foundation — due to their reticence on the issue.

    One day guns, the next day immigration, another day, another piece of liberty and morality is taken away. We are in the end times of Judeo-Christian liberty and have entered the dawn of darkness.

    “Decades ago the BSA realized that they had a significant and growing number of scouts being sexually molested by adult males.”

    Um, I’m sorry but if you’re a male sexually molesting a male, you are NOT straight. You are either homosexual or bisexual. Age of the victim doesn’t matter.

    I don’t get how this works.

    Suppose I’m a homo. And I want to be a Scout Master.

    Wouldn’t I want to keep this a secret?
    .

    I mean, am I really going to go up to the fathers of these boys and say, “Hi, I’m Fat Fred the Frolicking Faggot. And under the new Scout rules, I get to take your kid out to the woods for a little rompy-romp.”

    .
    Now by way of overannoying these kid’s fathers, couldn’t that possibly, all but finish Fat Fred’s tenure as SM? (unless this was in California)

    .

    Or am I missing something here?

  • Joan T.

    I have 2 sons that are Eagle Scouts. Leadership was always stressed as they climbed through the ranks. So what is the message now? Be a leader – unless times get rough. Then just give up, be a follower, and don’t worry about who it hurts, not even if it is children.

  • IslandLifer

    Highway they don’t work like that.

    The BSA gives each charter their option on who they choose to accept. Is this the cowards trying to wash their hands clean of any lawsuits brought about for discrimination? Throw those who won’t allow faggots under the bus and say “hey, it’s not our stance”.

    The sad part about it all is its those boys who are actively involved or looking forward to joining will sadly not get to enjoy something that would give them a step ahead in life while gaining self confidence at the same time. The BSA simply needs to go the way of the wind and replaced.

    I’m also getting tired of people complaining “we” as conservatives don’t fight as hard as the left or what are we doing about it. I do what I can, trust me. I let my voice be heard and I’m NOT one to hold my thoughts back. I say it how I feel it and I vote with my wallet and write or call my representatives. I attend community meetings and hand out flyers and speak with people. I put bumper magnets on my truck and try each day to talk to others about current events, not what is played on cable or network news. I continue to prepare myself for what is coming and I warn others to do the same. There is plenty I do!

  • geoada

    I am a former Canadian Boy Scoutwith a long history in scouting. Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, Rovers Cub leader, Scout leader. My grndfather was an Eagle scout and a long standing member of the Florida scout troops. My father was also the same and was a scout leader in Canada as well for several years. With this recent change to allow openly homosexual individuals in the organization as potential leaders of young boys sickens me and I can see Lord Baden Powell, my grandfather and my father all rolling over in their graves. Shame on the executive of the once great organization. I quit Canadian Scouts for nearly the same thing. SHAME!

    I regret, Happy Hospital, you have indeed missed something.
    If the alleged Scoutmaster in question would take this approach and be denied, he could most likely hire a good lawyer, sue the Scout troop (and possibly the District AND Council to boot) in civil court, claim discrimination, and require them to either him do as he wishes, pay him a great deal of money, or cancel the troops charter.
    Regardless of which way it would go, the man might gain something, but the boys will almost certainly lose.

    ..Which is precisely what the LGBT community has tended toward wanting for some time.

    A couple of guys in my old troop went to a meeting of our old troop. (it was still around!) We left disillusioned. It isnt the old Boy scouts we grew up in. Trust me when i say the scouts have lost any sense of what used to be a great organization. This newest nail in the coffin is just a step for gays to flaunt themselves in public. Im sure the newest merit badges will be make up and metro sexual clothing. And most likely liberalism.
