‘Gay’ activists want much more from Boy Scouts
The vote that took place last Thursday to fundamentally alter the DNA of the Boy Scouts is no less than tragic. Not simply because the BSA turned its back on members and their families, or because they caved to outside pressure. The most tragic aspect to this vote is that it won’t be the last. If the Boy Scouts really think this matter is settled and that they will now be left alone to conduct business as usual, they are naïve, at best. What many warned the BSA about and we continue to believe will happen is the door will now get wider. By allowing homosexual scouts, the BSA will now be pressured to allow openly homosexual leaders, to allow transgender people, and to begin affirming homosexuality. One needs to look no farther than the Girl Scouts to see just how far the Boy scouts will actually fall. And, as the Girl Scouts saw a tremendous decline in membership as their liberal social and political agenda was revealed, so too will the Boy Scouts. A recent article proves that the pressure will continue: “California Democratic state Sen. Ricardo Lara says that despite the vote, he will continue to push a resolution that would revoke the BSA’s tax-exempt status “to ensure that discrimination in any form does not exist – not in our state, not on our dime.” As we’ve seen, after you compromise one time, you will inevitably do so again. Now we wait for the response from thousands of churches that currently host groups and the Christians that lead and participate in those groups.
