The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is under siege from homosexual-rights activists within their own ranks! Two members of their executive board, James Turley, CEO of Ernst & Young, and Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T, are behind the aggressive push to have the Scouts embrace homosexuality and allow gay members and leaders into their ranks. For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts have enjoyed a rich history and tradition of building moral character and instilling lifelong values that help foster a conscientious, responsible and productive society. But all that could rapidly change. As one Scout leader wrote to an Eagle Scout, who is concerned about the effort to co-opt their beloved organization:
“These BSA board members are endeavoring to force their social agenda on 3.6 million Scouts and adult leaders.… They want Scouting to comply with their corporate policies, which have adopted the homosexual agenda under pressure, primarily from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.”++ Stand With The Boy Scouts Of America! For Grassfire old-timers, coming to the defense of the Boy Scouts was our very first issue back in 2000. At that time, homosexual activists unleashed a blistering assault on the Scouts after the Supreme Court affirmed the BSA’s right to set their own leadership criteria.
In the decade since, the BSA has become a favorite whipping boy of homosexual activists who are unrelenting in their efforts to force the Scouts to allow gay members and gay leadership. Now the attack is coming from the inside, and Grassfire is again taking action, urging members to show support for the principles and policies that have served the Scouts so well for generations.++ R.I.P. Scouts: 1910 – Feb. 6, 2013 The BSA national board is meeting next week to consider lifting the restriction and allowing homosexual members and leaders. If the ban is lifted, it could signal the end for Boy Scouts as we know it. That’s why Grassfire has launched an EMERGENCY petition giving Americans an opportunity to weigh-in on this issue prior to the BSA board meeting on February 6. Before the meeting, Grassfire plans to hand-deliver tens of thousands of “I Support the Boy Scouts’ Ban” petitions to BSA headquarters as a massive grassroots show of support for the current ban -- and strong opposition to the effort to radicalize the Scouts. Go here now to sign and have your petition hand-delivered to BSA headquarters next week: www.grassfire.com/252/petition.asp
After signing, please forward this message to your friends and family members – many of them may have been or may still be involved in scouting. Encourage them to join with you by clicking here and adding their names as well. Thank you for standing in support of the Scouts’ ban on homosexual members and leadership and for fighting back against radical activists who insist on speaking for our nation!
