Boy Scouts Taking Heat for Taking a Stand

The Boy Scouts of America recently affirmed their policy of excluding openly homosexual boys and leaders. The official policy reads:

While the B.S.A. 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 B.S.A.

Homosexual advocates have made their disgust with the policy clear, noting that the Girl Scouts and the Boys and Girls Club of America have already amended their policy to allow for openly homosexual membership.

But one really has to wonder how homosexuals and their social crusaders justify this intense desire to pressure voluntary, private organizations into endorsing the normalcy of homosexual behavior. No one is forcing anyone to join the Boy Scouts, and for all the vitriol that is being levied against them, the B.S.A. has a very reasonable defense for its policy (though they shouldn’t really need one). They claim that the membership of openly homosexual scouts or leaders would be a “distraction to the mission of the B.S.A.” And there is no doubt that it would. Girls aren’t allowed to be Boy Scouts either. Allowing sexual distractions of any kind is not conducive to the obvious purposes of the Scouts.

But when girls weren’t allowed into the Boy Scouts, do you know what they did? They made a similar organization just for girls. If it is so important for homosexual boys to go camping with their peers, perhaps they should just start the Gay Scouts of America. I’m sure their rolls would be overflowing with applicants. But this doesn’t really work, does it? The point is that homosexuals want to be “left-to-themselves-to-do-in-the-privacy-of-their-own-homes-what-doesn’t-hurt-anyone-else,” …except they can’t seem to extend that courtesy to anyone else. They want to celebrate “diversity,” while at the same time lobbying for a uniform moral code that normalizes their behavior. And if you don’t like it, they are more than willing to use social pressure to shame you into accepting their choices. And if that doesn’t work, they’ll just legislate their morality—creating “hate speech” and anti-discrimination laws to silence their opposition.

All in all, I’m glad the B.S.A. stood up for its rights. But I think the opportunity to do so is dwindling. Private organizations are not exempt anymore. More and more businesses and individuals are being taken to court for applying their personal moral standards to their private affairs. (Remember those Christian photographers in New Mexico?) If attempts to bully the Boy Scouts fail to produce the desired outcome, I would not be surprised if the homosexual lobby flexes its legislative muscles to force the Boy Scouts to change their “offensive” policy.

And for what purpose? The Boy Scouts wouldn’t be the same then. Many parents would immediately withdraw their children from it. It’s just such madness. Homosexuals want to be a part of the organization because of what it is and has been. But it also needs to change its fundamental nature in order to accommodate them? So which is it? Is it a fantastic organization they desperately want to be part of? Or is it a hate-filled, bigoted cultural dinosaur out of step with society?

I wonder what will happen if the homosexual community wins all of its political and social battles. Will they have a problem with open pedophiles becoming troop leaders? Will they join ranks with zoophiles to fight for the right to marry farm animals? No, but these things are ridiculous, right? I’m committing the slippery slope fallacy or something. Perhaps. But if you had asked people seventy years ago whether or not their grandsons should have openly homosexual Boy scout leaders… they’d have called you crazy.

  1. Let the homosexuals start their own camping organization and they can then play hide the pine cone anyway they would like………!!!!

  2. Stand strong BSoA. As long as groups like the Black Caucus do not have to admit anyone who isn’t black than Boy Scouts shouldn’t have to admit anyone who isn’t a boy.

  3. Can you imagine a faggot boy scout leader, he would be like a kid in a candy store, licking his chops and shopping for the best…… It makes my stomach turn.
    I can’t stand faggots and their agenda to normalize their lifestyle. I have a sister that is a dike and she tries to tell me that she is that way because God made her that way, that is just one more way that they try to normalize or justify their lifestyle. God did not make them make the sinful choice to be a faggot. God says that it is an abomination. How can they say that God made them that way.
    I was in the BSA and it was one of the best things in my life as a child, to teach me good Godly values and the values to help others and teach young men to have respect for your peers and authority. It was about making young boys strong and courageous young men that will stand for what is rigtht and shun the wrong.
    Keep the faggots out of the BSA.

    • are you by chance a member of the Westoboro Baptist Church, because you sure do sound like it.

  4. BSA is absolutely right on this issue. Gay ‘rights’ end where my children’s begin. Kids have a *right* to a sex-free zone in a private organization. There is nothing keeping the Gay rights folks from starting their own youth organization. Nothing.

  5. Homosexuals want nothing less than an acknowledgement from all people that their perverted “preferences” are normal. It has nothing to do with wanting to be Boy Scouts. The fact of an organization existing which does not accept as a premise that Homosexuality is good and healthy is a threat to their claim and, therefore, must be obliterated. That is why we must know, without any doubt, that Christianity is on a collision course with the homosexual agenda. There cannot be coexistence, because homosexuals will not allow anyone to openly express dissent with their claim that they are normal. Christians will have to be silenced, one way or another.

    • pearl, you hit the nail on the head! People with homosexuality have no right to try to demand us to accept their behavior as anything but perverted!

    • The majority of churches will fall but God has always had a remnant. The true Church of Jesus Christ will never cave to the power of the Dog (sodomite political power), God himslef will defend his people and plead their cause. They will never surrende , never comprimise the standards of God. IE Be Holy. In case youre not paying attention the colision has already begun. Snyder V Phelps. The Westboro Baptist Church fought to the highest court in the land and won.

  6. As I remember it, the 1st amendment guarantees the “God Endowed” right of freedom of association. YOU may want to freely associate with me — but it is my right to veto your wishes and declare that I do not want to associate with YOU. You may NOT force your association with me.
    This extends to any organization which is freely constituted of like-minded individuals. They may exclude from their membership anyone who is, or follows a life-style that is contrary to, the ideals and mission of the organization. That’s why the office of Pope is not held by a Grand Imam, why The Democratic Party does not have Tea Party Republicans as their leaders. The membership gets to choose — not the outsider.
    This analogy is null and void, however, when an organization takes public funding or seeks public licenses. When you ask for public funding or legal accomodations, you open yourself to laws and examinations that otherwise would not apply.
    One of the best examples is Hillsdale College in Michigan. It accepts NO public funding, nor does it accept scholarship money from the federal government. In this way, they can just say NO to the feds with their liberal college agenda and instead instill the values of freedom and love of country as wess as teach courses in whatever your major happens to be. But the feds can’t interject “gay studies,” or any liberal excuse for curriculum “enhancement.” They are also free to onlhy admit the best students without having to agree to set asides for the academically vacant so that they can attend.
    Without giving the feds the authority to tell you how to use their money, you can tell the feds to go pound sand.
    ’nuff said
