President Barack Obama:
Boy Scouts should be
open to gay members

Dallas Morning News & Wire Services, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/3/2013 5:31:56 PM

President Barack Obama on Sunday said Scouting should be open to gay members. Details to come. The Scouts´ national leadership is mulling scrapping the mandatory exclusion of gay members. Instead, the group could allow different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units to decide for themselves how to address the issue — either maintaining the exclusion or opening up their membership. Even though the Irving-based Boy Scouts reaffirmed the no-gays policy just seven months ago, the proposal is expected to be discussed, and possibly voted on, at the meeting of the Scouts´ national executive board,

Did he go on to proudly suggest if he had a son, the boy would be a gay Boy Scout?

If the Scouts will allow homos to join, then they must allow girls to join. There is no difference, sexuality-wise. Both the homos and the girls are attracted to the boys in the Scouts.

There have always been gay people in every organization known to man. If gay people follow the same rules as everybody else in that organization, I have no objection.

My children had gay teachers in theater, music and dance and didn´t suffer for it, but they were just regular people with no agenda. Today,everything has an agenda.

#5 that´s true, when it isn´t being done as social engineering.Some people in the Scouts are very Religious and take the oath seriously. Maybe they can just remove the God portion out of it...

The original structure was family structure.
Worked OK for a few thousand years.
Now we have government structure.
A few years, a few decades.
Not working so well, is it.

Just one more field of opportunity opened up to the new gay culture. And in a few years the boy scouts of American will be sued out of existence by abused young men. The BSA doesn´t have nearly as much money as the Catholic Church.

If you announce you are gay you are announcing that you enjoy using other men´s digestive systems for sexual thrills. This has no place what so ever in the Boy Scouts.

Look at me, says Bronco Bama. I grew up under the influence of some distinctly homosexual individuals, and it has affected my mature judgment not at all.

Of course the Current Occupant would be tolerant of openly gay mentors of youth. The Brotherhood is powerful indeed.

#3 - "If everybody follows the rules..."

If everybody followed rules we wouldn´t need police, jails, prisons, or a military. If everybody followed the rules, we could go without clothes.

But everybody doesn´t "follow the rules," and is there a "rule" regarding homosexual conduct?

There is, in the Bible. Homosexuality is wrong. But our Hussein Obama says it is just fine.

Keep homosexuals OUT of the BSA!

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature´s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

For the liberal trolls, this is almost the first two complete paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence.

Enjoy!

As I recall the Scout Oath:
"physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight".

Why am I not surprised that the betrayer of his oath of office would also force the betrayal of their oath by all Boy Scouts, both past and present?

Amid the deterioration of our society into the cesspool, it saddens me that so many on our side have given up in the war on words. Anyone still using the term "gay" is enabling the subculture of sodomy that has seemingly taken over the MSM both in reportage and actual infiltration. A male who inserts his junk into another male´s trunk is a sodomite-period. The proliferation of this sludge into what´s left of our society can only be stopped when the real MEN still out here take a stand and refuse to call this filth anything other than it´s proper name. I am weary of cowards in sports or other professions who say what they obviously feel one day and issue false apologies the day after. We are allowing a tiny fraction of the population [their outsized presence in the media and Hollywood give a false sense of large numbers] to dictate how we speak and undermine our most beloved institutions. Wake up! There is no "gay".

I´m a big believer in the Bible and I always felt that when people talked about the coming again of Jesus that it was something to come way in the future and what was happening today was bad but was somewhat minor...Not anymore...I´ve gone back to the Book and feel devastated that the ´end is coming´ really IS...I just never thought it would happen in my lifetime but I WAS WRONG...it´s unfolding right before my eyes and I´m trying to decide to accept it peacefully or strike back at all the ´evil´ doers that are helping so hard to bring it about. Look at it, bankrupt the country with all that he learned from his ´Cloward-Piven´ theory professors, corrupting religion with ´freedoms´ that insult, mock and defy Our Lord Jesus. Accept anything as ´OK´ and lie freely and frequently to anyone at anytime...Spit on your allies and support our enemies...Ignore truths and reward cowardice, incompetence and being an out and out traitor... Does any of this look familiar to whats going on??? Brother, our clock is ticking at high speed!

I think Boy Scouts should be open to gay members... nothing wrong with happy scouts. Homosexuals, on the other hand, have no place in a young men´s organization while many are still developing their sense of male sexuality only to be abused by perverted homosexual pedophiles.

Lucianne, please excuse a second post.

I concur with #41. Let´s cease using the term "gay" and begin using homosexual, pederast, or sodomite to describe the perversion.

And I agree with #46. World conditions which will prompt His Second Coming are increasingly evident.

Come Lord Jesus.

Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the military so that it can perform its mission better?

Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the Boy Scouts so that it can perform its mission better?

If that is not the case, if some agenda other than improving and advancing these organizations is the object [evidently the case?], why should these organizations put whatever that agenda may be ahead of their organizations?

I pity Obama when he stands before His Maker and is held accountable for all his actions.

Daily he sets himself up for condemnation, to hear Father God say - Depart from Me, I never knew you!

Also, what doth it profit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul.

We are living in an age of apostasy. Seems no one fears God anymore.

The only sin seems to be "getting caught"!

God, forgive US for our disregard for Your will/way.

Sodom and Gomorrah could have been saved with only 10 believers. I wonder how many are here today!


What will it take, America?

Obama is in the process of leading US to hell, not heaven!

Boy Scouts range in age from 11 to 17 years of age, chances are a kid between those ages would have little or no knowledge of the gay lifestyle, if the liberal entertainment industries were not making such a big issue of it to them. If heterosexual people were giving all those kids heterosexual sexual ideas they would be arrested for child sexual abuse.

Liberalism is the culture cancer that destroys everything it touches. Liberals seek out anything decent, traditional and good and inject its heresy and degradation little by little, bit by bit, then moves on to the next victim.

Think pedophilia is forever out of bounds? Think again. Liberals have begun their attempts to indoctrinate the ignorant and gullible. They are using the tried and true method so sucessful with homosexuality; desensitize through entertainment, demonize those not in agreement, gradually bring down age of accountability, attach it to "rights", claim it is inborn DNA and sexual attraction to the young is normal for some, and psychiatrist claiming the children suffer no real harm from sex with adults ( this is already in the "science".).

Little by little, bit by bit. Satan´s political party will sanction it all for more power and control. There is nothing the Democrats will not support given a great enough political constituency.

I don´t believe anyone or any group has denied them the privilege of starting "Gay Scouts of America." Those individuals or families that like the idea can become leaders or become troop members. Then they are free to do their thing. But I just bet lawsuits would soon be plentiful. That´s a risk for any organization, especially where youth are involved. Would they be brave enough. is it important enough to go independent of the Boy Scouts? I think not, as the radical ´pushers´ of moral decline, aimed at traditional American families, operate better as parasites on the healthy host...
If they REALLY believe in this lifestyle.. go for it, independently.. willing to learn from the results of their standards, their efforts within their own organization. Put it to a test..

El Paso parents say YISD fourth-graders

KFox14 (El Paso TX), by Stacey Welsh    Original Article

EL PASO, Texas- Questions about affairs, death and murder were all part of a fourth-grade reading assignment at Pasodale Elementary in the Lower Valley. One woman who did not want to show her face on camera told KFOX14 her son brought the assignment home because he was attending another tutoring session when his teacher passed it out. She is concerned other students completed the questions in class, so other parents could not stop them from reading it. "How is she grading it? Is she reading it? I don´t understand that," Ursula Garcia said. Garcia has a daughter in the same

Hustler sent to every congressional

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Cornyn Presses Holder on Gun Comments

Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) is demanding answers from Attorney General Eric Holder on the Justice Department’s pursuit of “smart gun” technology, warning that the government could require all gun owners to wear biometric bracelets to operate their firearms. Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department! Police department!” cops yelled, but got no reply, so ESU officers used a saw

U.S. Troop Reduction in Europe Has
NATO Commander Calling for ‘Pause’

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Philip Breedlove, a U.S. Air Force general, was asked if the number of U.S. forces stationed in Europe should

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
