Is There Hope For The Boy Scouts?
People across the country are outraged at the proposed change of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) allowing gay members, but NOT scout leaders. Apparently, when you reach the age of 18, you are not allowed to be a scout anymore – since that’s the “adult” age cut off… but only if you’re gay.
Forget the fact that these scout leaders are hard-working men who want to make a difference in their community and give back to the future generations of their country – they’re gay. That means they’re pedophiles! At least that’s the logic behind this ridiculous ban.
The Scouts rule book called, “The Membership Standards Resolution” will read as follows: “No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone.” This is a huge leap forward for the gay movement in terms of acceptance. BSA has never been a christian organization, but a community of team building. However, they might be headed in heaps of trouble.
Here’s how it happened: The organization put the proposed decision to a vote. The boy scouts (youth) voting for themselves and the scout leaders (adults) voting for themselves. Bing badaboom! It’s not a surprise that the younger generation was fine with allowing gays into the group, and the older – more conservative generation – did not.
Many parents, however, are now deciding to do something about the situation, thank God!
One parent, Dave McGrath, a former army intelligence officer, will bike side by side with his son Joe from Idaho Falls, Idaho to Irving, Texas. The 1,500 mile bike ride is a protest to stop the banning of gay scout leaders. McGrath’s identical twin brother is a gay Eagle Scout which means that he will not be allowed to lead a group of young boys after this proposed banning will pass.
Parents on the other side of the coin are arguing that gay boys will not be of sound mind to fulfill their duties – do you think it’s because the khaki shorts will be distracting to their fire making?
Listen, homophobia is created by nurture. The only reason why young boys are bullying other gay boys is because they are taught to think that homosexuality is disgusting, sinful, and will ultimately affect them somehow.
Boy scouts claim that they are an organization whose purpose is to build character. What message is this sending to their young men in uniforms? That only certain kinds of people are meant to lead. When you allow gay children and teens into your organization, but ban gay adults, aren’t you in turn brainwashing your young members into thinking that they are somehow destined the same fate?
Rework this logic – you’re beginning to sound like an oxymoron.
Emphasis on the Moron.
