Scout leaders vow to quit if 'gay' policy reversed
He‚Äôs a fourth-generation Boy Scout leader, recipient of an award for distinguished leadership and a member of the Southern Region committee as well as an ad hoc member of the national committee.
But if the Boy Scouts of America‚Äôs national executive board follows through this week with a proposal to reverse a century-old policy and allow homosexuals in its ranks, Steve Elwart of Vicksburg, Miss., says he‚Äôs one of many Scout leaders throughout the leadership structure who will resign.
Elwart, a 30-year veteran of Scouting, explained to WND that with a model program already in place to protect Scouts from sexual abuse, his concern is not that pedophiles will infiltrate the organization if the policy is changed.
Calling that issue a ‚Äúred herring,‚ÄĚ his concern is more fundamental.
Yes, Chris, way off topic, we could discuss the happening of Downton Abby?
The article on the Boy Scouts is a good one, and the author makes an extremely valid point, that the BSA may end up with a lot of money, but few members.
I wonder if the Girl Guides in Australia increased their membership when they, the Girl Guides drop Queen, God from promise. They have suffered a drop in membership (They're something of a sister organization the Scouts) perhaps because I think they don't have a queer test? It will be interesting if this increased their membership, and are they really the same organization when they drop their historical underpinnings?
By the way, way off topic but, what a game, what a comeback, and what about that power outage? Oh, and the 107 yard kick return that ended up being 2 yards short of an NFL record. Everyone thought it was a record breaker until the correction came. The 49ers should have went for the field goal...that was the worst 4th down play I had ever seen....offensive lines fault though.
I really like the idea of these children having places to go and things to learn, but I hope all of the scout leaders would quit and all of the born again Christian parents would pull their kids out. The problem I fear is that the vacancies will be filled in with homosexual leaders/scouts. These children should not have to worry about the leaders lusting over them or other scouts checking them out in private situations.
