LaBarbera to BSA: You'll get what you ask for

Posted by Charlie Butts and Chad Groening (American Family News) - March 14, 2013





As the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) are again asking for public comment on a new proposal to admit open homosexuals as members and leaders, one conservative is sure that request will be granted.

In a "tiny link" at the top of their website, reports LifeSiteNews, the Scouts have announced they are once again reviewing the policy that bans open homosexuals from joining the organization as members or leaders. A second link simply tells readers to "share your feedback."










What has been most damaged by the way the Boy Scouts has handled pressure to do away with its policy on homosexuality?

The Scouts� stand for morality
The Scouts� credibility
The Scouts� duty to God

BSA headquarters in Dallas was flooded with calls last month from people objecting to the proposed policy change, and with news of the new effort, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) believes the organization will likely receive many more responses.

"We already know that there are denominations that are prepared to launch their own scouting-type organization if the Scouts go pro-homosexual," LaBarbera notes (see earlier story). "Parents simply don't want open homosexual men as role models for their son. They don't want to send their son camping with open homosexuals."

He finds the whole situation untenable and says, "It's sad that the Scouts are seeking opinions rather than just doing the right thing."

"So, this whole exercise has already damaged the Scouts' credibility," the AFTAH president asserts. "But if they go through and pick the pro-homosexual change, it could literally destroy the organization."

The 100-year-old group announced last July that it would maintain its moral standards for members and leaders. But it bowed to pressure to reconsider the policy in January. A decision was expected last month, but roughly 20 percent of the youth members' councils asked for the decision to be delayed.

The BSA issued a statement at the time saying, "Due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy."

A decision is supposed to be reached this May based on a vote by some 14,000 leaders in Grapevine, Texas.

BSA survey labeled �coward�s way out�

Pro-family leader and former Boy Scout Robert Knight is blasting the leadership of the Boy Scouts for conducting a poll instead of standing up for the group�s historical position against homosexual membership and leadership in the Scouts.

The Boy Scouts of America sent out a survey to 1.1 million adults on the proposed change in their policy banning homosexual Scout leaders and members. The survey questions included: "Is it acceptable or unacceptable for the gay adult leader to take adolescent boys on an overnight camping trip? - and "If the Boy Scouts of America makes a decision on this policy that disagrees with your own view, will you continue to participate in the Boy Scouts, or will you leave the organization?"

Robert Knight is a senior fellow at the American Civil Rights Union and an Eagle Scout. He says the survey is completely unnecessary.

"I happen to think the survey will come out the right way,� he tells American Family News. �Most parents and Scout leaders do not want to open the ranks to open homosexuals. It's the coward�s way out � putting it to a vote instead of projecting strong moral leadership right out of Scout headquarters.

�I think there needs to be housecleaning at the national Scout headquarters � and this ought to come from these councils around the nation."

Knight says it is unfortunate the national Scout leaders are being influenced by board members who give large donations to the Scouts.

"At the top of the list would be Randall Stephenson, the CEO of AT&T,� he explains. �Now he's using his clout on the [BSA�s National Executive Board] to try to force the Boy Scouts to change the Scouts into the �Jerry Sandusky Scouts� � and I'm referring to the assistant football coach at Penn State who molested dozens of boys while the authorities looked the other way."

Knight says that is effectively what the Scout leadership is trying to do now by not taking a definitive stance against debauchery.

Randall Stephenson and fellow BSA board member James Turley, CEO of Ernst & Young, have publicly stated their intention �to work from within the BSA Board to actively encourage dialogue and sustainable progress� in changing the Scouts� policy banning openly �gay� Scouts.

A few years back Michael Savage was talking about the quars in the SS.

He interviewed some old German that said the Nazi's got the last laugh because the remaining SS homos were the ones that pushed,via the US gay mafia, to add homos to the list of those descriminated against by Hitler at the Holocost Museum in DC.
