Letter: Boy Scout decision disappoints

Editor:

The Boy Scouts of America, after having won a landmark Supreme Court decision in 2004, have decided and voted for a major change in their policy regarding homosexual Scouts. The vote approved and opened the door for open homosexual Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America. The vote was forced through extortion. Several major donors withheld donations until they voted and dropped the ban. BSA was held hostage and rather than fight, they rolled over. They executed the vote as a financial decision selling out their morals and values for money/donations.

How can they continue to say a Scout is “reverent” or “morally straight” with integrity? The door is now fully open for the ACLU and the Freedom FROM Religion Foundation to remove God and prayer entirely from the Boy Scouts.

As Catholics, we have no choice but to withdraw our support as directed by the Vatican.

I have been a Boy Scout leader for nearly 20 years and have two sons that are Eagle Scouts and this was a huge disappointment to us all, and due to the decision we will no longer be affiliated with Boy Scouts.

There is a new organization standing up to replace Boy Scouts called Faith Based Boys. I have already contacted them to find out how to get involved. Their web link is: http://faithbasedboys.org/.

Gay- having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music. I guess we will debate forever.

Ex-not sticking up for what gaius said, but this is what Webster has. I think #1 does not necessarily have to do with actual sexual contact. I knew I was straight before I had sex, so this one is a toss up for me. 1: ... More ›

Gaius, In regards your statement: "Being gay has nothing to do with being born male or female...it's a mental process. It is wired in the brain and can not be changed." Your theory of gay being a mental process ... More ›

'new person'...it certainly does matter whether you are male or female....a male had to get an erection to have sex. With a woman,it doesn't matter. DUH! Is your IQ in a range of about 75 to 90? Sure sounds like it.

Gaius..don't think it matters whether I'm male or female..as soon as we hit puberty I think this is something we all find out.

'new', I don't know if you are male or female, but I can tell you that for a male, being uninterested or unattracted to another person makes it almost impossible to perform sexually. Ever heard of having a hard time getting ... More ›
