Teaching young men to stand up for what they believe in by conferring and voting in secret. The bigotry I expected, but I had no idea the national organization was this cowardly.

i wonder when the first lawsuit for a gay boy/gay scout leader to join the girl scouts happens.

why hasnt a boy/girl sued to join the girl/boy scouts anyways? seems like the sort of thing people would do

My son was in cub scouts this year, a "tiger" meaning he was in first grade. Our den leader was a lesbian, and her domestic partner helped alot. Overall they were great at communicating, but the events were boring. No outdoor events to speak of, nothing exciting, the one campout we went to had a fire ban. I was the only person to bring a small propane stove to cook on and when I was making eggs and bacon on Saturday morning I looked around to see everyone else had macdonalds coffee cups and were hovering in around the smell of bacon. We left camp early and went to a state park to finish our trip.

Never went back to scouts, told folks his grades were slipping and he needed to focus on that first.

Interestingly, a transgendered boy recently joined the girl scouts. The reaction from the troop? There wasn't one. Though a few troops in a completely different state had complete hissy fits.

serial_crusher: I've been reading up on the Baden-Powell Service Association. It's a shame that congressional charters and BSA lawyers effectively ban them from using the word "scout" in their name, but surely they could come up with something a little catchier than what they've got now.
Young American Recon Group or something? I unno, calling yourself a Yarg seems kind of fun, but might not be for everyone.

I have good memories of scouting. Our troop master, not so many, because he was sh*tfaced on every camping trip until a few hours before it was time to head back and he needed to sober up. Good taste in porn, though.

This is ironic considering that, from my own personal experience as well as stories I've heard, boy scout camp is pretty much a non-stop hedonistic gay free-for-all

alywa: You know what libs? Sometimes I just don't get this country.

On one hand you have everyone getting their pantys in a wad over gays over at Penn State molesting kids. "Boo Hoo, they should have done something about that big bad Sanduskie guy..." yet on the other hand when an organization tries to take a stand against pedifiles you cry that they are being excluded.

Some facts (I know libs don't like them, but tough cheese loosers)

1. The Boy Scouts are founded on the beliefs of God and Country. There is no place in the eyes of either for degenerates.

2. Why would sexually confused young men want to hang out with a God fearing group like the scouts. Camping, being with your fellow men alone in the woods, long girl-free summer camps, sharp uniforms, songs, handicrafts? Go watch glee or something, and leave Scouting to the real men.

3. Scouts are a private organization. They never use community centers, public spaces, parks, etc, so your namby pamby laws about "oh lets hold hands and poop rainbows and sing KumByA" don't apply here.

Suck it libs. Suck it long and hard. Just don't go trying to gay up the Scouts.

Seriously. Wearing -that- uniform, your'e trying to tell me, with a straight face, you don't accept gay guys?


There's really only two kinds of folks with that knd of fashion sense. survivalist gays and facists.


So, basically, the BSA are telling us they'd rather be associated with nazis than with gay guys.. What in 40 farks is wrong with this world.

American Boy Scouting was only loosely based on LBP's Scouts of Gilwell.
Dan Beard's Indian Guides, and the Predominantly Protestant Businessmen who founded the BSA wanted an organization that offered an exciting alternative to the roving gangs of teen boys running rampant at the turn of the century. The Goal was to give them a Moral compass, and train them to be Community leaders that gave a shiat about others as much as, if not more than themselves. The BSA still tries to meet that standard of what Scouting is in the US.

Sexual orientation is a distraction that too many "religious" sponsoring organizations just refuse to look away from. They control the BSA, and since they make up the Majority of Scouting Org's, They get to say what goes. That's as democratic as it gets.

You should have told them it was too much excitement for the boy.
Not everybody is ready for that level of gritty realism and outdoor survivalism.

Fire ban?
Great planning.
What do they do, gather around the flashlight and tell spooky stories about the time their iPhone died?

That's pretty much the complete opposite of the Conservative agenda. Unless by "others" you mean "people who look, think, vote, and pray exactly like I do and don't do anything in private that I think is yukky or gross"
