Call the Boys Scouts

Today is the day when the National Boy Scout council decides whether or not to follow the US Military into the anti-boy abyss.  Take a moment to call or write!

Here is the contact information: myscouting@scouting.org

Or call the National Help Desk at 877-272-1910, or the BSA National Council operator at 972-580-2000.  http://www.scouting.org/sitecore/content/BSAFoundation/ContactInformation.aspx

    I used the “myscouting” link to send a politely worded note that the Boy Scouts movenent not yield to the pressures on them to have homosexuals as troop leaders. I agree that would be a very bad idea for many reasons. To do so flies in the face of the Boy Scouts movement’s entire history of trying to encourage boys to become good and manly men. Also, even if some homosexuals don’t “intend” to prey on boys, why expose them to temptation? Bluntly put, many homosexuals WILL be attracted to “nubile” boys of 14 or 15.

    Sincerely, Sean M. Brooks

  2. John Hutchins says:

    At the request of 33 councils spearheaded by the largest council in Scouting (Great Salt Lake) and after meeting with certain religious groups they have moved this decision to the National Council. The concern of the 33 councils was that they would cease to exist if this went through,; a certain amicus brief to a certain Supreme Court case would explain that concern; but apparently news organizations can’t put 2 and 2 together, which is probably a good thing.

    That same group is in fact well over represented on the National Council even given the number of units and scouts it has. There is certainly no guarantee that everyone that is a member and on the National Council will vote in the same way or that if they do it automatically fails, so it is still probably a very good idea to get in contact with those going to National and make yourself heard, particularly if you have boys currently in scouting.

    And they — punted.

    Does anyone else suspect they are going to try to do it on the sly, after the furor dies down?

    • The Deuce says:

      They’re going to have all 1,400 members of the national council voting this time, rather than just the schmucks on the executive board, which means that the move to allow homosexual scout leaders should lose in a landslide.
