    One has to wonder just what IS THEIR INTEREST when they advertise that it's a mental derrangement that they were ACTUALLY BORN with . . . ?? ?? . . . Huh?

    "The recent decision by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America to allow 'openly gay' youth to become members of the Boy Scouts was nothing short of a betrayal -- a betrayal not only of the values scouting has represented for decades but also of the families whose support for the Scouts has spanned generations. ... It's worth noting that the law does NOT require the change in Scouts' policy: the ban on homosexual members was upheld as constitutional by the Supreme Court, which affirmed the right of the Boy Scouts to remain true to their mission and decide, on a principled basis, who may become a member of their group. How ironic: After years of successful battles to maintain timeless principles, the BSA has fallen by their own hand. ... [A]ll parents should use this sad moment to explain to young people, in particular, that the freedoms we hold dear will not survive if the moral fabric of our country continues to crumble. As those of us who have left scouting and now mourn the death of the BSA, let's bind up our broken hearts and resolve to continue to honor the many leaders, families and churches who worked so hard over the years to build the character of young men through scouting. And to all former scouts -- especially the Eagles -- I urge you to write down your own treasured scouting memories so that you can share with your own kids one day what it was like when the Boy Scouts of America stood for principle and truth. RIP, BSA."

    Let them form their own troops with those who share their sexual orientation and leave the
    'straight' scouts alone.

    The BSA new that if they didn't cave on morality, corporate sponsors that are also part of the homosexual agenda in America would have bailed on them. Bottom line . . . money trumped moral values and the safety of every boy scout.

    Be interesting to see how this plays out. At the same time this decision was made, the Justice Department made the astonishing announcement that anyone can claim anything as "unwelcomed" and a violation of sexual harassment laws. It doesn't have to be reasonable anymore.
    So, all a Scout has to do is claim that something a gay scout does or says is "unwelcomed" and the gay scout could be prosecuted. As Alinsky stated, 4.“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

    Of course, I am not so naïve to think that the hypocrisy of the DOJ will actually be followed. But it would be fun to see how contradictory "progressive" values play out.

    (I do not endorse the hostile attitude toward a gay scout but a scout could play the same game that some women have played and make a mountain out of a molehill.)

    For goodness sakes. These young boys were indoctrinated. They do not have the maturity to determine if they are gay or not! Thier lives are ruined to a lifestyle that in the end. Will leave them childless and alone.

    as far as im concerned the boy scouts has given in to political pressure. since when was the boy scouts a political organization. and ill tell you something else. nowhere on the application does it ask a kid what is your sexual orientation?? we have had gay scouts in boy scouts already. why make a big issue of it now?? they merely succombed to pressure from the outside. scouts is a private organization and they didnt need to do this.

    The Scouts should and must keep the highest standards. It is and has been a role model for Boys to grow up to be strong, moral and responsible Men. Homosexuality is an aberration. It is not Natural. That said, many Gays have been members of the Boy Scouts over the years and have succeeded to Eagle Scout level. Some who are curious and some who know what their orientation is. It is between them and God what will be said about a particular person's make-up and idiosyncrasies and the manner in which a person lived. I do not believe it is in the best interest of upholding the stated mission of the BSA to allow openly Gay scouts. Scouts who are not able to control their homosexual proclivities should be excluded. As a Scout one must be reverent and morally strong. Condoning aberant behavior is not conducive to those values.

    right which is why it never asks on the application what is your sexual orientation. its none of our business. boy scouts never excluded gays in the first place. because it was never asked. they merely succombed to political pressure this time. a shame because boy scouts is aprivate organization.

    Don't do it, they will be in one hell of many lawsuits, I foresee many rapes and harm inflicted on those boys by filthy lustful gay men.

    What's next they might allow pedophiles WHICH they had heaps of trouble and scandals back in the day.

    Those poor children, God protect them.

    get you facts straight. they voted to let gay boys in , not leaders!!! no gay adults will be allowed. and as far as im concerned the scouts didnt need to vote on this in the first place because we never excluded any gay kids. we never asked. a kid has to fill out an application to join and nowhere on the applciation does it ask what a boy sexual orientation is.

    And soon gay MEN will say they need to guide gay boys as only they could understand them.

    Read my comment again, it's only a matter of time when someone gets raped or messed up because these fools can't keep their pants zipped and stop thinking about sex.

    No they say there won't be any problem and Gays don't try to change or influence kids into their lifestyle, well we currently have the case of Kaitlyn Hunt and 18 year old influencing a girl who is 15 years old but Kaitlyn has been having an affair with her for several years. I don't at 13, 14 or even 15 they have not set their sexual desires and this girl was influenced by her. And this can happen in Scouts too.

    So what's next, forcing them to accept members of NAMBLA as scout masters, 'cuz pediphiles are people to?

    Were does your liberal dribble lip stop, oh and homosexuals aren't a "race" and your bigotry is "OK" 'cuz you're just "smarter" and know what's best for everyone else.

    Society should not and must not condone every activity in the spectrum of human behavior. We have been sliding down "the slippery slope" for years now. Lines must be drawn. Lines that should never be crossed in a moral and civilized society. It is not bigotry for a society to place limits on behaviors such as pedophilia,beastiality,rape,u... marriage,etc Behaviors that are unnatural should never be protected by law.

    this isnt about bigotry . there have been gay scouts for years in boy scouts. when a boy applies for membership nowhere on the application does it ask what a kids sexual orientation is. this is none of our business. scouting is not about finding all that out. scouting is about teaching kids survival skills and earning merit badges. i was a leader for many years and i would have no problem if a kid was gay or not. doesnt matter. but this vote was a political move and the scouts succombed to political pressure.

    Hopefully a new organiztion will be founded, well-funded, and void of glorifying sexual sin between and/or among ALL youth.

    This is just a further slide into America's seemingly inevitable abyss of moral decay and is really no surprise to me, although a disappointment to me for the sake of the youth involved.

    We can never be perfect, but when we start glorifying sexual sin among youth who belong to PRIVATE organizations founded on teaching a pursuit of collective moral integrity, we can pretty much kiss a desirable state of society good-bye.
