There is enough liberal media bias keeping out the truth, so I hope this stays on here.
This morning (Feb. 6), The Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board postponed a vote on whether or not to lift a long-standing ban on gay members and leaders. Citing the "complexity of this issue" and the need to carefully deliberate its membership policy, executive leadership said in a written statement:
"The executive board directed its committees to further engage representatives of Scouting's membership and listen to their perspectives and concerns. This will assist the officers' work on a resolution on membership standards. The approximately 1,400 voting members of the national council will take action on the resolution at the national meeting in May 2013." Prior to this executive board decision, Grassfire hand-delivered more than 61,000 petitions to both the hotel where the board members were meeting and the Boy Scouts of America headquarters in Irving, Texas.
++ Skirmish Is Won, But The Battle Remains! There's no question that an intense grassroots outcry led to the decision by BSA executives to delay the vote -- a vote that could end Scouting as we know it. There's also little question that this battle is far from over. Even now, we've learned that homosexual activists are ginning up their ranks in anticipation of the May vote. If we've learned anything over the years, the gay and lesbian community is well-funded, aggressive and committed to forcing their agenda on the rest of us. They will succeed if we walk away from this "victory" or continue to ignore what these radical activists are trying to do to the moral fiber of our nation. Even the scout authorities agree if they lose members because of this, they will lose a lot of money. Don't let another opportunity pass to support the Scouts' long-standing tradition of fostering strong moral values. Join the thousands of grassroots Americans who are taking a stand.
