How much more bad PR is required to get the BSA leadership's attention?

The Boy Scout leadership will undoubtedly conclude that the 91% who didn't comment on their anti-gay policies strongly support them and will be offended by any change.

I find it hard to believe that if the BSA does fold to pressure from the gay agenda and start allowing queers, that most parents wouldn't pull their boys out of there immediately. I know I sure would.

An internal survey shouldn't have anything to do with gay influence ; or are these imbecilic bigots ( above ) implying that boy scouts are a weak , easily-led bunch ? If that were the case they shouldn't be " leading " anything or anybody .. However you cut it , this contrived argument doesn't make any sense .. Rather the eagle scouts' support ( which gays have had from the beginning of the controversy ) gives the lie to all this hot wind blowing from the land of the backward and the hopeless ..

Somehow I feel like more parents would be comfortable with sending their kids on a camping trip with me (a gay man, secure with myself) than with the likes of you. Being gay does not equal pedophile (actually quite the opposite).
And for the record, all those gay men that you secretly fantasize "want you".... well guess what... don't flatter yourself!!

I'm no fan of the BSA policy, either. But I can be just as critical about the misuse of statistics, and the claim that "97% Of Boy Scouts And Parents Think Anti-Gay Policy Negatively Impacts Loyalty" just isn't supported by the survey.

When Regnerus made false claims about gay parenting without actually studying gay parents, we jumped all over him.

Perhaps a large portion of the 91% who didn't comment on the anti-gay policy also believe that it "negatively impacts their loyalty" (whatever THAT means). Maybe even a majority of that number does.

But without any evidence one way or the other, you simply can't make that claim.

It appears likely that the BSA leadership who created the survey instrument specifically avoided asking the question directly for fear of getting a response that wouldn't support their anti-gay policy.

And of the 9% of member respondents who brought up the issue on their own, 97% believe that the policy negatively impacts their loyalty.

That's all that can be concluded from this survey.

The 'survey' is of course baloney. I've talked with Boy Scot leaders in several different areas, and NONE found support for exposing Boy Scouts to homosexuals! Often, the sponsoring organization dictated that there should be no change.

The Mormons are the largest sponsor of Boy Scouts in the USA and several other countries. They will never support giving homosexuals access to minor young men.

The Catholic priest abuse problem was over 80% homosexual in nature and primarily involved molestation of Boy Scout aged minor young men, with very little pedophila involved. Scouting simply connot afford the huge liability of changing this policy!

I sure there are lots of parents out there that would be thrilled that their children wouldn't be subjected to bigots like you and your children. How soon can you leave?

Actually the predators in whatever situation flourish in sexually sick, authoritarian institutions, and both the RCC and the Boy Scouts have already had the pedo scandals they invoke as "justification" for their bigotry.

Meanwhile lots of organizations welcome glbt people as members or clergy or administrators without anything approaching the scandals in the bigot Boy Scouts or the misogynist RCC.

So it ain't the sexual orientation. It's the will to abuse power.

"In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish efforts rise the schemes of the International Jews.
The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race.
Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world.
This movement among the Jews is not new.
"From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxemburg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide revolutionary conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing."
-Winston Churchill
I like the key phrase "Impossible equality"
Sound familiar?
