Pushback appears to be working once again. Due to public outrage, plans by the Boy Scouts to sell out to militant homosexual bullies and their moonbat allies have at least been delayed. From the NY Slimes:
The Boy Scouts of America, which confirmed last summer its policy barring openly gay people from participation, then said last week that it was reconsidering the ban, announced Wednesday that it would postpone a decision once more, until May, as talk of gay men and lesbians in the ranks has roiled a storied organization that carries deep emotional connection and nostalgia for millions of Americans. …
Even proposing the change created fracture lines. Some supporters of the ban said they feared a wave of departures by conservative church-sponsored troops, while supporters of a new policy said the risk was in not going far enough — although each side acknowledged that scouting, with fewer boys every year wearing the uniform, needed to find new ways to connect with young people.
New ways to connect with young people? At least the pedophile enablers at the Slimes have a sense of humor.
Why would anyone who isn’t flat out evil consider sending scoutmasters who are not only homosexual but who insist on everyone knowing that they are homosexual out in the woods with little boys? Because the hard left has learned how to play cowardly corporate donors like a Stradivarius:
As WND reported last week, a major drop in corporate funding came last September after a gay-rights blogger for the Huffington Post published a collaborative report that named the donors and chastised them for violating their own policy of not discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation.
Since the September report, Intel, UPS and Merck are among the corporations that have declared they have stopping funding the BSA.
The homosexual-rights group Scouting for All lists some of the corporations that have refused to fund the BSA’s national organization. They include IBM, Levi Strauss and Company, J.P. Morgan, American Airlines, Medtronic, Portland General Gas and Electric, Hewlett Packard, Textron, Fleet Bank, CVS/Pharmacy Stores and Carrier Corp.
The point is not merely to express reverence toward disease-spreading homosexual depravity, nor to sexually corrupt children — although both of these are worthy goals from the point of view of a moonbat. For generations, the BSA has served as a bastion of decency and morality against the rising tide of cultural decay that is both the cause and the result of liberalism. Forcing the BSA to betray its own values, then looting it out of existence with lawsuits when the inevitable molestations come to light as they did after homosexuals infiltrated the Catholic priesthood, will remove this obstacle on the path to progressive utopia.
The bad guys are pushing hard. To push back, you can
