    New blood in water for media frenzy: Boy scouts about ready to capitulate to homosexual degeneracy under all-out assault on the outside from gay mafia controlled businesses and mainstream media, plus corporate queer-coddling enemies within on its board.

    Dave and others saw this coming:
    Catholic Church (deemded by liberals as a hate group) will soon be all that’s left of organizations not bullied into abdicating their own foundational beliefs. Scouts will need to change their oath about doing their duty to God and remaining morally straight.

    On my honor I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and my country
    and to obey the Scout Law;
    To help other people at all times;
    To keep myself physically strong,
    mentally awake, and morally straight.

    IslandLifer’s post reveals the enemies within the Scouts, successful in caving in their own organizations to homosexual debauchery to gain gay kudos in corporate world now look to similarly corrupt and sell out the Scouts:

    However, local chapters and some members of the national board — corporate CEO Randall Stephenson of AT&T and James Turley of Ernst & Young — called for a reconsideration.


    Two 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. Stephenson is next in line to become the national chairman of the Boy Scouts.

    Most international affiliates of the Boy Scouts allow gay members. The Girl Scouts of America has had a full nondiscrimination policy for years.

    The BSA has lost sponsorships — most recently from the Merck Foundation — due to their reticence on the issue.

    Liberal Secular Humanist Board Members sell out the Boy Scouts to the Gay Mafia to Preserve their own oranization’s high standing with gays and the almighty dollar:

    “The Scouts were presented with a petition from, an online forum supporting activist causes. It bore more than 275,000 names and protested the ouster of a lesbian mother, Jennifer Tyrrell, who’d been serving as a Scout den mother near Bridgeport, Ohio.

    “We are at a tipping point, with national leaders within the Boy Scouts now taking a firm stand to help end discrimination,” Tyrrell said in response to Turley’s statement. She called on another prominent Boy Scout executive board member, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, to join Turley in speaking out against the Scouts’ anti-gay policy.

    Like Ernst & Young, AT&T has been commended by gay-rights groups for gay-friendly employment policies

    “The last thing AT&T wants is to undermine its excellent reputation for supporting LGBT people by failing to support a resolution that would bring equality to the Boy Scouts,” Tyrrell said.

    AT&T issued a statement on Stephenson’s behalf, indicating that he too might be interested in working internally to reconsider the membership policy.

    “Diversity and inclusion are part of AT&T’s culture and operations, and we’re proud to be recognized as a leader in this area,” the statement said. “We don’t agree with every policy of every organization we support, nor would we expect them to agree with us on everything. Our belief is that change at any organization must come from within to be successful and sustainable.”

    The Scouts, who celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2010, have had a long-standing policy of excluding gays and atheists. Controversy over the policy intensified in 2000 when the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the Scouts to maintain the policy in the face of a legal challenge.

    Tar and feathers for these two Judases would be a wrist slap.

    Island Lifer – there SHOULD be a more viable alternative for every youth, boys & girls: A locally organized militia. Call it scouts on steroids. What’s keeping these organized militias from taking root? Only me and you and our and our lack of local participation in America’s future.

    I wonder if socialized medicine pays for these visits:

    Nursing home defends prostitutes’ visits

    Residents of Chaseley nursing home, in Eastbourne, referred to them as “special visits”. The home’s care workers would take the visitors to a resident’s room. They then put a “special red sock” on the door and checked on them every 15 minutes.

    On one occasion the home organised a group activity, bringing in strippers to entertain residents.

  11. Clingtomyguns says:

    The gay agenda, how it worked for liberals with gay marriage, the military, corporations … now :

    The authors of After the Ball discuss in the book about a 1988 summit of gay leaders in Warrenton, Virginia, who came together to agree on the agenda.

    These authors are Marshall Kirk, a reportedly brilliant researcher into the brain, and Hunter Madsen, a Harvard-trained expert in public persuasion tactics.

    The two men proposed using tactics on ‘straight’ America that are remarkably similar to the brainwashing methods of Mao Tse-Tung’s Communist Chinese — mixed with Madison Avenue’s most persuasive selling techniques.

    … there is an agenda. They admit it privately, but they will not say that publicly. In their private publications, homosexual activists make it very clear that there is an agenda. The six-point agenda that they laid out in 1989 was explicit:

    1. “Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and as often as possible.” That was aimed at making people so tired of the issue they would want to give them anything they want to make them shut up.

    2. “Portray gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers.” That’s why they exploited things like the tragic murder of Matthew Shepard. It was a tragic murder, yet they have used that and spun that to demonize people like Dr. James Dobson and other Christian leaders who have taken a biblical stand on homosexual behavior — people who have love and compassion for those trapped in that behavior.

    3. “Give homosexual protectors a just cause.” That was designed to tap into and exploit the almost innate sense of fairness that Americans have; to the sympathy that we have — especially liberals have — for those who seem to be disenfranchised.

    4. “Make gays look good.” That’s what they’ve done through media campaigns, through television programs, like “Will and Grace” and others, where homosexuals are portrayed as the most normal, stable people in America.

    5. “Make the victimizers look bad.” They portray people of faith — people who have legitimate and biblical reasons to oppose homosexual behavior — as homophobes and bigots. They also try to “muddy the moral waters” by getting liberal churches, many of which have thrown out a great deal of the Bible, to say that homosexual behavior is just fine from a theological perspective.

    6. “Get funds from corporate America.” In fact, they have. They have gotten corporate America to sign on to their agenda, and it is very interesting how they have done that. It’s based on fudging the truth — and outright lies.

    By the way, the authors of “After the Ball” admit that the use of lies is perfectly fine in their struggle. Their main thing is to get people to believe them. That is all that is important.

    What’s interesting is that gay activists go to corporations and say, “We are an aggrieved class; we are discriminated against.” Then, on the other hand, they go to corporate America and say, “Look how much money we have. We make double what a traditional family makes. We are a market that you want to advertise to and cater to.”

    Corporate America signs on — whether for domestic partner benefits, or whatever — because they don’t want to alienate that market.

    Hint to BSA….

    The LDS Church is the single largest sponsor of scout troops. If you let gays in as leaders, you and the LDS Church will part ways.

    You will shrivel and die.

    Gun Store Owner Bans Obama Supporters: Not Responsible Enough to Own a Gun

    A week after Cope Reynolds, the owner of Arizona’s Southwest Shooting Authority, took out an ad in the local paper and posted a sign at his store banning Obama supporters from entering, Cope says that business is booming due to the attention his business has received from his anti-Obama promotion.

    Police officers in Seattle, Washington held their first gun buyback program in 20 years this weekend, underneath interstate 5, and soon found that private gun collectors were working the large crowd as little makeshift gun shows began dotting the parking lot and sidewalks.

    But the BuyBack wasn’t a bust. On the contrary – their $80,000 supply of gift cards didn’t last but 2 hours, and by 11:00 am they began attempting to issue IOU’s at which point the entire crowd responded by turning and marching toward the gun dealers, forcing the police officers to pack it up for the day.

    Milwaukee County sheriff: Don’t wait for the police; arm yourselves

    “I’m Sheriff David Clarke and I want to talk to you about something personal: your safety. It’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game. But are you ready? With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family.”

    PDW’s for me but not for thee.

    Big Sis is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW) — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians. The solicitation, originally posted on June 7, 2012, comes to light as the Obama administration is calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.

    … DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.

  15. IslandLifer says:

    I’m a scoutmaster and it angers me beyond words. I will quit and perhaps take up Jimbo’s suggestion. I remember going to the firing range and learning to shoot the .22 long rifle as a scout, now they won’t even allow paintball guns. Like Sam Adams said as well, that organization will crumble by alienating themselves from the LDS church and other Christian organizations. I knew this was coming but not this fast! I’ll form a new organization that teaches youth how to hunt, fish, shoot, field dress, trap, garden, wilderness survival, and other skills needed but at a different level where BSA BS approval is not needed. Just the nod from the parents.

    It’s right there in black and white, in Section 1311(h). You know, one of those sections Nancy Pelosi warned us about when she said we’d have to “pass it to know what’s in it.” Section 1311(h) empowers a single bureaucrat with no medical training – the Secretary of Health and Human Services – to “standardize” the services your doctors can and cannot offer you. The real goal of this stealth clause? To reduce health care consumption, period.

    This means that even if you’re covered by a private insurer, and even if the treatment your doctor is proposing is perfectly legal, the government can still tell your doctor he’s not allowed to give you that particular treatment. And if your doctor decides to do so anyway, the government can shut down the practice entirely.

    Gov. Quinn signs bill that lets illegal immigrants get driver’s licenses

    The signing of a bill Sunday allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses attracted dozens of potential motorists and a pack of top Illinois politicians, all eager to tout their role in legislation many see as a precursor to comprehensive immigration reform that could create a windfall of new citizens, and voters.
