Will Boy Scouts Commit
Gay-Activist-Assisted Suicide?

Oregon Magazine, by Matt Barber

Original Article

Posted By:TeapartyM, 2/4/2013 3:07:46 PM

In coming days the Boy Scouts of America will decide whether to violate – eliminate, really – its own mission statement, oath and law by changing its policy to allow, within its ranks, Scouts and Scoutmasters who are open practitioners of the homosexual lifestyle. Sadly, to do so would destroy BSA’s credibility as a “morally straight” organization. Such foolhardy capitulation to extremist pressure groups would spell the demise of Scouting as we’ve known it. The Prince of the Earth seeks to corrupt and ultimately destroy all that is righteous, honorable and good.

If they go the gay route the only thing left to do is to disband the organization.

The gays can start their own organization. Anyone wanting to join their club can do so. Leave the Boy Scouts alone

My neck is sore from shaking my head over the past week.

We have DOCUMENTED examples of homosexual scout leaders engaging in the worst sort of cowardly, predatory behavior and all the while we hear that persons opposed to removing any remaining safeguards against such acts are ´bigoted and intolerant.´

Are the banks that lock their vaults ´financially discriminatory?´

It´s the same thing as citizens who resent being treated like criminals at their airport of reentry to the US - meanwhile Mexican border-jumpers are lavished with goodies.

The Boy Scouts tick all the boxes for the nihilistic left: morality, youth, purity, self-reliance, etc. Socialist cretins have no role and it drives them mad.

This author is wrong to say that they are "practioners". Nobody is saying that someone who is gay necessarily practices any kind of behavior. It is a state of BEING--an orientation. But that doesn´t mean that the kid is going to have sex! Geez!

Jerry Sandusky was charged with 53 counts of... of what? Gay sex with boys. He fooled law enforcement and protective agencies for twenty years. The mindless and moniacally driven gay agenda sees every opportunity to normalize perversion as righteous. So the boy scouts must accept leaders who lust after other men´s excretory system? Only good can come from that... Insanity!

Our society tells us to teach our kids to not talk to strangers, don´t play in the street, don´t stay out after dark, just say no to drugs. Anything and everything to avoid even the slightest risk to their health, and yet when it comes to gay activists, we are supposed to turn a blind eye to the safety and well being our kids, because of their political clout?

I agree with #7. Pedophilia isn´t gay or straight and no one is suggesting scouts having sex is a good idea. Even the Catholic Church embraces gay members although gay sex is considered a sin - point being they don´t reject the person, just the sin.

One simple, straightforward question needs to be answered: Are the people who are in favor of this change prepared to spend their own money to create an endowment to pay the multi-million dollar judgments that will be awarded to young boys who are sexually abused by pedophile scoutmasters? Nobody thinks that all gays are pedophiles and of course nobody thinks that all pedophiles are gay men and of course, there´s no worry about lesbian scoutmasters sexually abusing young boys but if an organized lobby of heterosexual men demanded unrestricted access to scores of young girls at remote campsites as a civil right, they´d be laughed off the planet.

Liberal logic 101 = Teen-aged boys won´t have sex.

Liberal logic 101 = Homo boys that are physically attracted to other boys won´t have sex if they spend a week in the woods camping with boys they are attracted to.

Liberal logic 101 = If homos can be scouts, so can 14 & 15 year old girls. They won´t have sex with the boys when they spend a week in the woods camping with those boys.

Yes, liberals ARE this stupid.

Homosexuality definition: Sexual interest in and attraction to members of one´s own sex.

Arguably, homosexuality is a tendency that (left unchecked) gives way to homosexual acts. And yes, #7, just because someone who self-identifies as ´gay´ does not necessarily equate that they engage in homosexual acts, just like alcoholics do not necessarily engage in excessive drinking. But chances are both groups usually give in to their impulses, hence the identity and the tendencies.

I give credit to gay activists over the years in successfully glossing over the lifestyle of this ´orientation´ while sweeping under the rug the associated acts and the destructive consequences to themselves, to those around them and to the rest of society.

Getting back to the crux of the issue, do we really want to formally condone men self-identified with homosexual tendencies to be in a position of authority in an organization over and around impressionable young boys?

As a 50+ year participant in BSA, both as a youth and a leader...

A change in the policy certainly wouldn´t make me flush my Eagle badge. I know what it meant - and what the organization was - when I earned that badge. (With unrelenting encouragement from a wonderful mother and father.)

However, a change in the policy would indeed make a big impact on my future participation - both as a volunteer leader, and as a "friend of Scouting" ($). And I´m not sure I could encourage my grandsons to get on board.

This article was well done. What does the BSA oath mean when it can mean different things to different local BSA organizations?

Boys in BSA already get razzed that souting is "gay". What boy is going to want to stay in what will be known as one of the queer troops? Will parents be able to ask if the Scoutmaster and/ir ASMs are Gay? What will the policy be. Will it come from the National Board or local?
What 13 year old will want to share a tent with an open gay scout? Will the scoutmaster assign them to do so. We all know what will be whispered and said come morning. How does a boy defend himself and his reputation? What parent would place their child in such a situation. God help that kid if it gets out in Middle school that he "spent" the night in a small tent with a out gay scout.

It is an Evil thing that gays and progressives idiots are doing to Scouting.

#22 is right, there is a huge scandal with gay pedophile scout leaders that has been kept under wraps in the U.S. and Canada over the last two years or so. It is like, just on the heels of the gay priest scandal with the Catholic church, the Episcopal Church decided the time was ripe to ordain as a bishop an openly gay male priest whose given name is Vicky Gene (because his parents wanted a girl. Kind of like Stanley Ann´s father, who wanted a boy). It is akin to Penn State pushing for openly gay youth football coaches because not all gays are pedophiles. Such is the leadership of today.

From BSA´s perspective, behind the scenes they are frantically trying to find a way to put "lipstick on a pig." The LDS Church pumps millions of dollars into the national coffers. BSA will do a lot to keep LDS from pulling out. I am positive that LDS church officials are talking with the organization ´s leaders as we speak. BSA cannot afford to lose the tens of thousands of LDS troops.

#7 Peoiple personaly caught up in homosexuality are one thing. The subset that really really really wants to be Boy Scout leaders is another thing.

And no it´s not a "state of being" like male or female. It is a deeply habituated wrongful sexual practice mostly stemming from events in childhood.

The headline is a statement to, not a quote from Boehner, but it was worth the deception to make the point. President Obama has been given so much slack by an enabling Washington D.C. media, that Obama is now hanging onto the rope to avoid falling into the abyss. The fawning media who placed all their political bets on his success, is unwilling to admit publicly (and perhaps even privately) what they know in their brains but unwilling to let their heart in on: Obama is and always was a phony.

Because of the release of a new movie about him, I wish to discuss Steve Jobs and his obvious success. But to do that leads me to one of Jobs’ greatest admirers, Rush Limbaugh. Rush’s fondness for Steve Jobs began with Rush’s great love of technology. He didn’t become enamored with Apple products because of Steve Jobs, he became enamored with Jobs because of his products. Rush knew they must have been demanded by someone who thought like he did: attempt as much as possible to achieve perfection.

It’s starting. Well, it’s been predicted, but what’s beginning is something even America’s low-informed might notice but only when in front of their collective faces. Banks in southern Europe are beginning to restrict access to bank accounts. That this phenomenon will make its way across the pond is becoming rather clear, but only to those who listen carefully. Our money, the dollar we once knew, is now only virtual. The dollar our country made the standard of the world, has become an X and an O repeated and created trillions of times over each day without anything to back up its value. We’ve been off the gold standard since 1972, and since then the dollar established itself as the fiat currency of the world.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
