Victory: BSA Board postpones radical policy change. Help the Boy Scouts remain “Morally Straight”!

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel.

The corporate leadership of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is considering caving in to pressure from pro-homosexual activists and exposing the Troops to openly practicing homosexuals in positions of leadership. That was the radical policy change proposal in their February meeting. On the day of the BSA Board of Directors’ vote, Liberty Counsel delivered a petition with over 20,000 names calling on the board to stand firm and buck the societal pressure, as Scouts are often called to do. I believe that our efforts coupled with the work of many other organizations created enough of an internal conflict that the vote was postponed until May.

Help the Boy Scouts remain “morally straight

The Scouts’ Oath for Boy Scouts and their leaders states… “On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country. To help other people at all times, to obey the Scout Law, and to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” Many of the Boy Scouts’ original rules of conduct were based on biblical values. Many churches serve as home base for BSA Troops across the nation.

Are the Scouts willing to give up that base of support in order to gain Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transexual (LGBT) acceptance and financial support from corporations that have already complied with the radical activists’ demands?

The LGBT agenda has no place in the Scouting program.

As I mentioned, the BSA’s executive leadership and its Board of Directors are under extreme pressure to change their decades-old policy of banning openly practicing homosexuals from participating in the Scouting program. Several of their sitting board members are leaders in major corporations who have already implemented pro-homosexual advocacies within their organizations. Now they are pressuring the BSA to do the same – or face the possibility of losing their financial support.

In May, this proposal will arise again – and likely be voted upon at a special BSA Board Meeting which could reverse the longstanding policy of prohibiting openly active homosexuals from BSA participation and begin the drastic decline of an organization that has long made a positive contribution to the moral climate of our nation.

I am calling on every Liberty Counsel supporter to sign a petition that will be delivered prior to the BSA meeting calling on the organization to…

•NOT COMPROMISE its moral integrity.
•NOT CAVE IN to those who promote social engineering within the ranks of the BSA, and
•NOT ALLOW POLITICAL CORRECTNESS to destroy the character and effectiveness of the Scout movement.

Take action with Liberty Counsel now!

We are praying for at least 100,000 signatures on this petition! Join us in telling the BSA to not violate its own oath and remain “morally straight!”

Thank you for taking immediate action with us!

Is there nothing that is sacred any more? Please do not cave in to the immoral requests of a few who do not seem to have the same moral values as the Boy Scouts are suppose to stand for. Stand firm and be one of the "few" who don't have to be "politically correct".

I have three sons, all Eagle Scouts. The scouting program has given my sons and many other young men great and important strengths, attributes and skills and taught them important moral values like courage, patriotism, empathy, and much more that they each use every day as they live in our increasingly wicked world. These things should not be taken lightly and the Boy Scouts of America should hold fast to the high moral ground no matter what comes.

If the Boy Scouts change their position on GAY leaders do not make any more requests for money from ME.

Why do we not boycott AT&T. Let's hit them in the pocketbook - that will get their attention. We could tell them if their CEO vote for approval, we'll drop our use of AT&T

I was a Boy Scout back in the 1950s, and it was a wonderfil experience which shaped my life. But there was one dark side to my scouting days, we had a gay scoutmaster who had an affair going with at least one of the boys in our troop. Back then, homosexuality was a totally foreign lifestyle to boys in their early teens. Of course, we made jokes about it among ourselves because we didn't know exactly how to handle the problem. We never told our parents because we were too embarassed and uncomfortable to discuss it to an adult. That scoutmaster passed away years ago, and I have no idea what happened to the boy after he grew up. The arguement supporters have for allowing gay scoutmasters is that being gay does not mean these individuals will approach the boys for sexual contact. I know that claim to be a lie. Stay "morally straight" BSA, and do not invite homosexual foxes into the scouting henhouse.

Stand strong Scouts! You are the future leaders of our country. I fear that God will not protect our country if homosectual leaders are in charge. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah!

    Be the one who stands up for our children when everyone else is throwing their morals back in the face of God

Neither homosexualty nor homosexual leaders belong in the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts is not a place to push your agenda, but a place to teach a boy how to enter manhood.

If the scouts bend over we are finished totally with the scouts! Any common sense thinking parent must wander if your child is safe from sexual deviation by a scoutmaster, if they allow these perverts to prevail.

PLEASE do not let the Boy Scouts of America sink to the level of a "group" of a lessening number of members, and lowered ideals toward all that is good and upright. I am the mother of three Eagle Scouts, and am so VERY grateful for the growth into manhood, and the importance of the high standards and impeccable morals that my sons learned in the BSA, church, and home - and I'm very sure that the Boy Scout Oath and Law had a LOT to do with the fact that they all are fine men in their own rights. Please keep the high moral standards BSA has always held in such great importance, allowing our current young men to learn how to become fine men also. PLEASE may BSA remain "..........morally straight."

There is nothing to be gained by lifting the ban it will neither raise the donations nor give homosexuals an approval for their lifestyle. How is it that they believe that allowing homesexual youth in to the BSA will improve the program. It is a gateway movement to bring ever continuing changes that will have no end. The lawsuits for other changes like adult homosexual Scout leaders, atheist, and transgenders will overflow the BSA till it will no longer exist as we know it.. Please BSA don't cave in to those who would change the BSA to a everything goes organization. I am a BSA recruitor and last Saturday May 18th 2013 after e week of distributing over 600 flyers in 8 Elementry schools to meet at a Wal-mart store for signup we had a total of three students and their parents in 4 hours show up for the event. Parents have been looking at the BSA proposal to lift the ban and they are concerned for their children. The recruiting efforts will be a casualty of lifting the ban. Sincerely, Trenton Spears Scoutmaster
