As most of you are aware, the Boy Scouts decided that their troops will allow gay boys to join. However, at the age of 18, the gay boy turned young adult will not be permitted to serve as a leader in the troop.
This decision has offended the righteous who take this as a sure sign that God is fixing to rain fire and brimstone down on America.
I checked Ken Ham’s Facebook page to see what he had to say on the subject. Ham posted a New York Times article on the subject and made no commentary. But, his homophobic, bigoted followers sure did. What follows is a mix of outrage, paranoia, bigotry, homophobia, hypocrisy and prophecies of the soon-coming demise of America and the Boy Scouts:
I bought no Girl Scout cookies this year because they aligned with Planned (non) Parenthood on abortion.
I will be withdrawing my financial support for the scouts tomorrow. Very, very tragic decision.
Oh, no! I really hoped they would buck the tide on this one. But I consider the Boy Scouts to be a dead organization now. They just haven’t done the last rites yet.
I wish they would have said they were dissolving the Boy Scouts. That would have been the honorable and manly thing to do, rather than caving in to bullies. All they have taught boys by doing this is, if you are mean enough for long enough, you will get what you want. They people who decided this should hang their heads in shame. My young son is more a man than these men have been
I’ve been a leader and my son has been a scout. When the discussion started in late October early November we resigned. Yes our entire troop dissolved. We are done for good. Such a perverted shame!!!
How filthy and disgusting. We are fast becoming Sodom and Gomorrah.
The way that civilizations collapse.
We are called to repent and sin no more, not continue to live in sin. Homosexuality is sin, clearly called that in the Word .
How sad. About 5% of our population has so much power. Lord, have Mercy.
Less than 5%
Isaiah 5:20 (NKJV) 20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
They caved. Too bad. IT will be the END of the Boy Scouts of America. Why couldn’t the Gays just go form their own group instead of ruining the Boy Scouts? Oh, yeah, that’s what the Gays want…to ruin the “establishment”.
Sigh… First the Girl Scouts got really disgusting, and now the Boy Scouts have followed suit. It would have been better to have dissolved the organization than to so pervert its values.
GLAAD says they will not stop at just this, and will continue to hound the Boy Scouts until they have gay leaders and actively teach pro-gay lessons to the scouts. That was their goal all along. That’s why my husband says he won’t let our future sons join, and why I’m sure membership will drop.
As soon as I get my Eagle rank, I’m out!!
The death march of an American institution has begun. Sad day in the U.S.A. It is always the case when principle is sacrificed for an immoral agenda.
Christians can drop from the scouts and join AWANA. Imagine the effect that would have on the culture. Hmm?
On my honor I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong,mentally awake, and morally straight…so much for the Scout Oath.
Well the oath will have to change now along with disobeying Gods Word.
This is a tragic compromise. The camel’s head is in the tent…..it’s only a matter of time. God help us!!!
Thats a dang on shame!….I will never allow my sons to be in Boys scouts.
I thought for sure it wouldn’t pass this time. This is the nail in the coffin for them.
This will end the BSA. I could comment on the religious issues. I could comment on how it violates the Scout Oath. I could comment on how it will cause troops to loose their free meeting places. But those reasons are not why I am saying this.
I say this because it is nearing summer camp time. Time where these scouts will go off to spend a week together, sleeping in pairs, alone. Putting an adolescent, at the height of their new-found hormones of which they have not learned to control, in a tent with someone they are potentially sexually attracted to, is throwing a match into a powder keg.
While the potential for this was there before, it is now an openly accepted and even encouraged scenario. No different than putting a boy and girl in the same unsupervised tent alone, together. The BSA has effectively just removed ANY defense they may have had in such a case. They can no longer say they did not know the youth was gay when putting him in with another boy because the youth kept it a secret for fear of not being able to participate. Now they have to openly welcome the most ‘out-of-the-closet’ youths and trust to hope. Unfortunately, that hope will not pay the law suits that will follow
We wouldn’t allow open thieves, open assailants or open adulterers either. Boys cussing and throwing spit wads would be corrected- not ignored. Why is this sin okay to ignore?. And while its a sin equal to others, it’s different in that its a very dangerous sin that targets young boys specifically. Gays are usually recruited by sexual abuse as children. So why would we risk our children having to fight the trauma and risk of that experience? Think camping situations. There is always opportunity no matter how careful the guardians.
Things are going sour day by day, more and more…despickable.
Just another sign of a spiritually dying America!
Liberal deviancy wins again.
As with public schools, Christians should consider the irreparable harm they do to their children when they expose them to this garbage without first grounding their kids in scripture.
How many boys, I wonder, were wanting to join the scouts but couldn’t? 1 in 1000? So they change their national policy based on this miniscule percentage? This wasn’t about treating people fairly; it was about sponsorship money and donations. The leadership cares more about money than integrity and doing what’s right.
Here is my question: Why is it acceptable to have a gay scout but it’s not acceptable to have a gay scout leader? What’s the rationale? If one is morally wrong…aren’t they both?
Impossible to be “morally straight” and sexually deviant. So now the BSA morphs into the “Boy Sodomite Abominations”
More elements of prophecy playing out.
Its not that i particularly care about gay peoples one way or another… i do have a problem with gay men teaching my boy how to be a man when they dont seem to know how themselves..
Very sad day as we move deeper into the enemies camp.
A pathetic, cowardly betrayal. Good riddance to the spiritually dead BSA.
I agree with you Ken. Sad day for our country. We must pray for all these lost kids.
This is truly sad, I would say God is very sadden over this deal, I kinda feel the the Christian people allowed this to happen. We did not fight hard enough for what is right for the Boy Scouts. Every Christian parent should take there children out of the Boy Scouts ASAP. Or try and fight this to change openly gay members getting into the Scouts. I’m sure they could get a Gay Scouts of America there own group.
Sexual sin destroys our soul in ways other sins don’t. It’s not only the fact it is a sin, but it is one with disastrous consequences; different than any other sins. Above all opinions of society and popularity and political correctness do we want to honor God or men? That’s the point. God says “He that honors Me, I will honor.” May we do so, despite the force against us. We love people, we hate sin. Sin has to be disciplined and be brought under control. At what level does society teach us not to?
Ken is exactly right. The bad element will corrupt the good. You must see the “Entire Picture”, which is the proven method of operation with gay adult activists and atheists, they pretend to be upfront: ” Oh, we just want gay boys accepted to join and they will be discreet and not flaunt gay activities.” Sadly it’s proven that’s a lie, the adult gay leaders & sexual deviates will be aggressive to push GROWTH AND RECRUITMENT of other gays within the BSA ranks, therefore, desecrating all they have stood for over 100 years. This is a SAD day in America. Pray for God’s Will to be done!!
Sure be adult leaders to the lost but don’t take your boys. Recruitment into their lifestyle is the goal. Make no mistake. There’s something called battalion that I thought was Christian and a similar alternative.
Bad company corrupts good behavior the Bible says. How could any Christian condone their kids mixing like this–kids are a gift from the Lord–parents are responsible for them–we have to answer to the Lord as to how we train our kids and what influences we allow them to have.
Great place for homosexuals and pediphiles to recruit young unsuspecting boys. Any parent who would allow their son to be subject to this would have to be nuts!
Let them go to the Girl Scouts.
Sad day when perversion is chosen over morals and family values.
Congratulations on drawing your line in the sand…NOT! Now that you’ve retreated, you can’t stop with just homosexual youth…you may as well just allow everyone and anyone to join….at least we still have Godly organizations like Pioneer Clubs to instill Christian values…if you are old enough to declare yourself homosexual, you are old enough to reject the authority of Scripture.
Maybe they’ll be renamed to the “Boy George Scouts”.
You will need to find a very very modern thinking set of parents to send off their son with other possibly older boys who are openly homosexual. Way to winnow down the field even more with ultra modernism.
Absolutely. Unless it’s changed to honor gay lifestyle instead of God. Satan still wants to be God…
Satan knows to destroy a nation is to begin at the children level. If they can be raised to believe sin is right then the whole nation will soon fall. Jesus come quickly.
Homosexuals pushing their way into organizations like this is just a form of adult bullying and the spineless government allows it for fear they will bully them. This is not a peaceful “COEXIST” attitude. BULLY is the right term.
They`ll have to change from Pullin Pud to Stickin`Mud… That`s the sad truth…
All sins are NEVER justified in God’s eyes. Who will protect the sons of our nation from a sexual sin that will destroy them? Saying no to homosexuality in Boy Scouts is us protecting those boys from what they may not understand. If anyone causes these little ones to sin it would be better that a milestone was hung around his neck and he drown in the depths of the sea. Pray for those in opposition to God’s holy law, they need freedom in Christ as do the boys.
When I read the announcement I felt as though I was literally punched in the stomach and had the wind knocked out of me…
I was hoping the would stand their ground and morals … I wonder if they realize that these are children … why are children thinking about sex at such early ages … does anyone take that into consideration.
The end of civilization.
