No longer loyal to Scouts, boys join Trail Life

Mar 1, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Wausau Daily Herald

Chatting in the living room one night, Ron Orr gave his 15-year-old son Andrew a choice: He could stick with the Boy Scouts of America and his mission to become an Eagle Scout, or he could join Trail Life USA - the new Christian-based alternative that excludes openly gay boys.

Why any parent would allow their son(s) to remain in the BSA, which now condones and allows homosexuality, is beyond me.
Trail Life is the way to go!
You're absolutely correct, parents who wish to teach their sons how to discriminate absolutely should leave the BSA and be with their own kind. They then can proudly be foul mouthed bigots just like you when they grow up. They need to be segregated.

Like there won't be any gays in Trail Life?

Only an ignorant fool would believe that.

The BSA needs to change it's name to the GBSA - Gay Boy Scouts of America.

All normal decent people choose Trail Life!

They are welcome to join but they have to act like boys, not gay boys.

I bet they're all quite proud of their parenting "skills" teaching them the values of bigotry and segregation. More like Trailer Life USA.

Send Trail Life a note, they can use that in their advertisements for new troop recruitment. We wouldn't want them to lie about what they're really about would we. It'd blow that trustworthy shit right out of the water.

Also make sure they teach their inductees to make sure they put their proudly attained membership on their resumes. Lots of companies are looking to hire bigotry trained employees.

It is only a matter of time until the gays go after Trail Life. They won't be happy until they destroy anybody and any group that isn't celebrating homosexual lifestyles. Word to the wise. Underground is the way to go to escape both the government and those who use the government to pummel anybody who wishes to protect their children from corruption by gays.

They have their values, you have yours. They say people are often judged by the company they keep. Why would a parent want people wondering if their child was gay? I bet your parents weren't thrilled with the news.

Agree, let the intolerant jerk of a parent put their soon-to-be intolerant jerk of as kid with his own kind. They do not belong with well mannered decent kids.

Yes that's all that Trail Life asks. Please don't be prancing around the woods in pink spankies like the new boy scouts do.

How does one act like a boy rather than a gay boy or a straight boy?

I yanked my boys out of the scouts a couple of years ago as soon as I heard they went gay. My boys are in Trail Life and love it! And I feel safe knowing no queers will be turning them gay.

Underground is the perfect place for the Trailer Life trash.

Or maybe wondering if their child was---(Gasp!)---- left handed!

OMG, the horror!!!!!!!!!

But you're right, you bigots ARE judged by the company you keep and the ideas you espouse.

Unfortunately the gay kid who happens to have one of those morons for a parent is going to have a tougher time coping.

Imagine growing up gay in a homeschooled fundamentalist religious home. The poor kid doesn't stand a chance at a normal childhood and will probably be scarred for life, all because of his parent's irrational bigotry against their own child.

Would you like to buy a few million closet doors? We have warehouses full of them. It would serve your kind right, you'd get to see what it was like for us for way too many years.

So ignorance IS bliss for you.

It does make one wonder how much it would take to turn you gay. I'm guess about 10" would do it....
