On Wednesday, World Net Daily published an article (Why Scouts are rethinking ‘gay’ policy), which highlights the methods being used to coerce the Boy Scouts of America into capitulating over the issue of homosexuality.
Art Moore of World Net Daily reports:
“The Boy Scouts of America’s apparent decision to reverse a century-old policy to bar homosexuals from its ranks coincides with a sudden drop in major corporate funding that began last summer after a gay-rights blogger for the Huffington Post published a collaborative report that named the donors and chastised them for violating their own policy of not discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation.”
Apparently, buckling under the mounting pressure of intimidated sponsors who are running for cover, the Boy Scouts of America has apparently shifted its message a bit.
WND reports that as recently as July of 2012, the Boy Scouts “reaffirmed its policy on homosexuals”, which reads as follows:
“While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.”
However, in advance of a scheduled meeting next week, the Boy Scouts apparently are now contemplating allowing “local, chartered organizations” to “establish their own requirements”.
Deron Smith, Director of Public Relations for the BSA National Council, further added that under those conditions, scout members and their parents “would be able to choose a local unit which best meets the needs of their families.”
No other details or specifics were revealed in the WND piece, but this appears to signal the likelihood of a significant change in Boy Scout policy in the near future.
Another piece of important information, also shared by Mr. Smith, is that under this proposed new policy, nobody would be required to act in a way that is “inconsistent” with that particular organization’s “mission, principles, or religous beliefs”.
Only time will tell.
As WND reports, since the U. S. Supreme Court sided with The Boy Scouts over the issue of homosexuality, the organization has had a huge target on its back, fighting lawsuits, boycotts, and censure.
The Supreme Court ruled that the Boy Scouts of America were well within their constitutional right to set the rules and standards for their private organization.
Obviously, opponents of the Boy Scouts were not happy with the ruling, so what was the next method of attack? Attack the organization’s sponsors.
Rather than establishing a new scouting organization of their own, one which would reflect the “diversity” that the LGBT community prides itself in, the proponents of homosexuality insisted that their ways must be, not only tolerated, but celebrated by the Boy Scouts.
Failure by the boy Scouts to do so has brougth with it an onslaught of aggressive, chastising, name-calling, bullying, corporate coercion by the homosexual lobby.
Apparently, it has never occurred to the LGBT community to establish and fund its own, private version of the Boy Scouts – perhaps the “Gay Scouts of America” – a version where anybody is welcome, on a voluntary basis, not on the basis of coercion, threats of lawsuits, or boycotts.
President of the Family Research Council, Tony Perkins, added:
“Sadly, their principled stances have marked them as a target for harassment by homosexual activists and corporations such as UPS, which are working to pressure the Boy Scouts into abandoning their historic values.”
