Boy Scouts of America Drop Gay Leaders Ban! But There Is A Catch.

Boy Scouts

 

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has unanimously approved a resolution to end the organization’s ban on gay adults working as leaders.

But there is a catch.

The resolution, which passed unanimously does allow scout troops to set their own policy on the issue which mean they can select adult leaders without regard to sexual orientation.

It will, however, also allow units with religious ties to “continue to choose adult leaders whose beliefs are consistent with their own”.

Many large sponsor of Scout Troops – include the Roman Catholic Church and the Southern Baptist Convention are vehemently anti-gay and will obviously use the exemption to continue discriminating against gay men.

The group’s national executive board will meet to ratify the resolution on July 27th..

19 Year Old Eagle Scout Outed On Facebook Denied Summer Camp Job With The BSA

Gay BSA

 

19 year old Garret Bryant was looking forward to a summer leadership position with the Boy Scouts of America at a BSA Summer Camp in Arizona.  That is until he was told he was being turned down because the Boy Scouts found out that he is gay.

“I did the best I could to follow BSAs ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy said Bryant,

One week before he received the bad news, Bryant had updated his status on Facebook to say he was in a relationship. He received many congratulatory responses, and at least one friend inquired, “what’s his name?”

Bryant realized the mistake nine to 12 hours later and removed the comments, but it was too late.

“I couldn’t control other people outing me, even if by accident. Following the rules as being an Eagle Scout apparently weren’t enough for me to stay on camp staff.”

When he called to require about why he was turned down, he was told “homosexuality” was the reason, he said.

This year the Boy Scouts began allowing openly gay teens into their ranks, but still don’t allow gay adults. Bryant is still considered a youth for many programs in the organization, but not for all of them.

“The whole reason we went public with it is to bring it to light that halfway is nowhere near good enough,” said mom Kat Bryant, who has known since the fall that her son is gay.

 

 

Boy Scouts of America Boots Openly Gay Scout Leader Because of “Personal Agenda”

Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America on Monday removed Scoutmaster Geoff McGrath, 49, who is believed to be the first openly gay adult to be barred since last year’s ballot in which the Scouts voted to accept  but not gay adult leaders.

McGrath told  KING 5 News that he was being profiled by NBC News this week when the news outlet posted on its website that his membership had been “revoked” — information that he did not learn until he read it on the website.

McGrath, an Eagle Scout who is married to his partner of 20 years, had filed an application for a new troop last year through Rainier Beach Methodist Church. He said Troop 98, in Seattle’s Rainier Beach neighborhood, was approved. “”The impact of discrimination has missed them somehow”

Chief Seattle Council leader Sharon Moulds told NBC News the Scouts did not ask about his sexual orientation and discovered he was gay only after NBC News contacted them.

Moulds wrote in an email to NBC News:

“It was then that we became aware of his intentions to make a public statement about his orientation and use our program as a means to further a personal agenda.”

McGrath said it was not a “personal agenda”  but simply an attempt to re-open the organization’s LGBT policy.

Spokesperson Deron Smith of the Boy Scouts of America has said that the BSA has no plans to revisit its policy on the banning of gay adults.

This fight ain’t over yet kids.

FRC’s Tony Perkins Attacks Utah Boy Scouts” “They Celebrate Homosexual Boys!”

Tony Perkins FRC KKK

“If you’re wondering what happens in an organization that doesn’t have leadership or moral courage, look no farther than the Boy Scouts of America. After the BSA knuckled under to activists’ demands, the effects are already starting to show. As FRC predicted, it took no time at all for the influence of the radical Left to seep into a group that now openly celebrates homosexual boys. On Sunday, in an act of defiance, Boy Scouts and adult volunteers marched in Utah’s gay pride parade — even after its chief scout executive said it violated the organization’s rules. Members of a troop chartered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ignored the council’s guidance and put their ‘gay pride’ on full display — and in their Scout uniforms. Deron Smith, a spokesman for the BSA headquarters, tried to distance the organization from the troop by saying that ‘these individuals do not represent Scouting.’ But after last month’s vote, they certainly seem to.” – Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins over-reacting to the Utah Boys Scouts that marched in SLC Pride , via email.

Salt Lake City Boy Scouts Defy Leaders, March In Gay Pride Parade

Gay Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts and adult volunteers wore their uniforms Sunday as they marched in Utah’s Gay Pride parade — defying a leader of the youth organization who had said they couldn’t do so under the organization’s guidelines prohibiting advocating political or social positions.

“It just feels like the right thing to do,” Kenji Mikesell, an 18-year-old Eagle Scout and high school senior still active with his troop, said before leaving for the parade in Salt Lake City.

Peter Brownstein, a Scoutmaster who helped organize the Boy Scouts participation in the march, said a few adults and youth marched at the front of the parade in uniform, including a Cub Scout, an Asst. Scoutmaster, and a father and son team despite the fact that a local leader of the Boy Scouts had said Friday that they were forbidden from doing so.

We as a Scouting movement do not advocate any social or political position” said Rick Barnes, chief scout executive of the Great Salt Lake Council. “We do not, as Boy Scouts, show support for any social or political position. We’re neutral. If he wants to attend the parade and others do that are Scouts or Scouters, they’re welcome to do so as private citizens wearing whatever they want except their uniform.

In a statement, Deron Smith,  a spokesman for the national headquarters of the Boy Scouts of America, said it was up to the local council to determine any punishment.

“These individuals stated a personal opinion and do not represent Scouting,” said Smith. “Scouting teaches young people that often in life one finds rules they don’t agree with, but a Scout is to be  obedient. To simply disobey a rule because you disagree with it is not an example to set for youth. It is up to each council to determine how best to hold their leaders to the standards of Scouting.  We will support the Greater Salt Lake Area Council as they determine the appropriate response.”

Scott (Crazy As A F**king Loon) Lively: Satan Founded The Boy Scouts For Man On Boy Sex

Scott Lively in Uganda

“Many pundits are weighing in on the decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow open homosexuality into the organization.  I, for one, am not surprised. It is not generally known, but the youth hiking and camping movement we know today in America as the Boy Scouts, has its roots in pederasty.  Pederasty, also known as Man/Boy Sex, is the overlapping common core of the now open male homosexual and still hidden male pedophile communities.  It involves primarily sexual relationships between adult men of any age and boys roughly from age 7 to 17.  It is the most common form of homosexual relationship in history and the means by which a great many young men are recruited into a life-long homosexual identity.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that pederasts naturally gravitate to all-male societies. Consider the Roman Catholic priesthood.  Look at their list of victims and you will see that the priesthood scandal was not about pedophilia, but pederasty, a form of homosexuality.  The Boy Scouts of America is no different, except now the organization itself will do most of the work of recruiting the victims, and is also likely to try to cover up all evidence of the problem so as not to admit their policy change was to blame.”Scott Lively

This comes from the piece of shit  man and “Christian” who went to Uganda and started the “Kill the Gays” movement  there and who hired a KNOWN child molester to work with kids and live above his cult recruitment – I mean “coffee shop” in Massachusetts.

Bryan Fischer: The Boy Scouts of America are now The Butt Scouts of America — VIDEO

Bryan Fischer lunatic

American Family Association radio host and spokesdouche Bryan Fischer went into his usual drama queen mode after the Boy  Scouts voted to lift the ban on gay scouts by declaring that the organization is  now “The Boy Sodomizers of America”, Right Wing Watch reports.

Meanwhile, the Boy Scouts believe that 200-400 thousand of its members will  leave the organization because of the change in policy, FOX34 reports:

Of course FOX34’s numbers are total bullshit.  But not nearly as bullshit as the BSA’s decision to allow gay scouts mostly because of the loss od donations and sponsorships.  But for also keeping the ban on gay BSA leaders and counselors and insinuating that gay leaders are all immoral and pedophiles.

And for those in the LGBT community that are crowing about this being a victory.

That’s BULLSHIT too.

FRC Posts Anti-Gay Boy Scout Videos Starring Creepy Scoutmasters and Chick-fil-A Worker

Shawn Anderson bigot

 

The anti-gay hate group the Family Research Council has started posting anti-gay Boy Scout propaganda videos on YouTube and they just have to be the creepiest most bigoted videos to date.

The first stars Dax Bushway an ex-Eagle Scout who contacted me claiming that I defamed his “character” that he’s not homophobic.  So watch the video below and decide for yourself.   By the way.  Dax works at a Chick-fil-A.

The second video below stars a group of Scoutmasters who look like they come directly from the set of to Catch A Predator.

Obviously this group never learned or cared  to that.

“A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He seeks to understand others. He respects those with ideas and customs other than his own. A Scout is concerned about other people. A Scout understands there is strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated.”

So much for Scout Law.

These people are morally bankrupt, evil and certainly not leaders of any kind.  If anything the Boy Scouts of America should be kicking them out!

I wouldn’t trust my child around any of them.

 

Oh No She Didn’t! – FRC Hate Group President Tony Perkins Trash Talks Madonna

Tony Perkins FRC KKK

“The same Madonna with song titles that couldn’t be read aloud on network television, even invoked Christ. ‘It’s so absurd. What did Jesus  teach? Love your neighbor as yourself.’ It has always amazed me how people who have done everything possible to  push God and His standard from our country feel free to invoke this  passage of scripture. It only works when they insert their definition of  ‘love’ not the biblical definition of love. In this conflict of values, Madonna is the face of the other side. As a  mom or dad, whose moral compass would you want your kids to follow: a  performer who strips on stage (when she isn’t bashing the military) or  an organization devoted to public service and character development?” – Little Miss Tony Perkins, proven white supremacist and President of the nationally recognized anti-gay hate group The Family Research Council.

Tony Perkin lecturing on character and “love thy neighbor“.

Now THAT is an irony kick to the junk.

Microsoft’s Bill Gates Responds to Boy Scout Ban On Gay Members: “Lift the ban already”

Extraordinaire in all things software engineering  Bill Gates has a clear, concise statement for the Boy Scouts of America and their ban on LGBT members/volunteers. Gates has always been an outspoken advocate for LGBT rights and felt the succinct message for the religious was to get with the times. Here’s more:

Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder and one of the world’s richest men, has a message for the Boy Scouts of America: Lift the gay ban, already.

Speaking at Politico’s inaugural Playbook Cocktails interview series in Washington, D.C., Gates said he had enjoyed being a Scout. On stage with Politico D.C. bureau chief Mike Allen, Gates recalled learning “how to tie knots, how to weave baskets, how to hike long distances without complaining too much.”

When Allen turned the conversation to the organization’s ban on gay members and leaders, Gates said the policy “absolutely” needed to be scrapped.

“Why,” prodded Allen.

“Because it’s 2013,” Gates replied, prompting a spontaneous burst of boisterous applause from the audience.

ThinkProgress notes that Gates has shown his support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality measures in the past, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars toward the Washington state marriage equality campaign.

Let’s hope they start to listen to messages like this as they continue to debate on lifting the ban on LGBT members that will come up for vote among Boy Scout leaders sometime in May.
