Boy Scouts of America says discussing end to ban on gay members

Boy Scouts of America is discussing ending a longstanding ban on gay members and allowing local organizations to decide their own policy, a spokesman said on Monday.

Lifting the ban would mark a dramatic reversal for the 103-year-old organization, which only last summer reaffirmed its policy amid heavy criticism from gay rights groups and some parents of scouts.

Not only members, but leaders as well. It's on fox right now. As an Eagle Scout, I strongly disagree.

Then my family will be discussing end to being involved with Boy Scouts.


Unfortunately, the Girl Scouts have been very pro lib for a while. When my daughter first joined I asked the leader if she was going to push some lesbian agenda and she was very cool about it.

As a former Boy Scout, I know my parents would have never let me or my brothers go on any camp outs if the Scoutmaster had been gay. With churches housing about 50% of the troops I predict a huge a decline in membership if this occurs.

The straight only Boy Scouts just need to reorganize under a new name. The thought of a gay scoutmaster in the woods with a bunch of young boys sickens me to my core.

I'd say churches sponsor way more than 50% these days, and if this is implemented most of them will kill off the program.

The sad thing is the libs pushing for this don't care if they kill a 100+ year old tradition that has been helping and building character and life skills.

Pathetic.

True Story:

My nephew is an Eagle Scout. My brother was a Scoutmaster and they were about to embark on a canoe trip on the Okefenokee Swamp. In preparation for the trip the boys had been schooled in first aid and tick removal by using Vaseline to get them to release. All of this training had taken place at the troop meetings over the weeks preceding the event.

Picture this. 100 Boy Scouts are standing beside buses, tearful Moms and proud Dads are saying their final goodbyes before the trip. All the boys are lined up with the Scoutmaster's in front of them going over the final preparations and Q&A. Everyone ,including parents are listening intently.


The main Scoutmaster asks the boys "Any last questions before we board the buses?" My brother said he saw my nephews hand shoot straight up. He thought "what could he want to know?"

My nephew (about 10 at the time) in load voice, "Did you bring the Vaseline, Sir?"

My brother said he liked to fell over.

It will be a sad day if the Boy Scouts cave in to the pressure put on them. They are one of the few left standing for traditional values. I was an Eagle Scout in 1971.
