A simple test for sanity, courtesy of the Boy Scouts

Even a flaming Liberal should see that it just might be a bad idea to knowingly let homosexual men spend unsupervised time, including overnight camping trips, with boys.  If your legal counsel tells you otherwise you should fire them and hire someone who is competent.  Just consider how an institution like Penn State will lose many tens of millions of dollars and perhaps their entire football program over the actions of one man.

Just consider this parallel: Would you think it wise to let heterosexual men have the same kind of interaction with young girls?  Would it be hateful to oppose that?

So kudos to the Boy Scouts for doing the obvious thing (though there would be nothing wrong and everything right about them making proactive inquiries).  Via Boy Scouts Reaffirm Ban On Open Gays; Call It ‘Absolutely The Best Policy’:

While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.

Yet here we are, where most of the commenters at that NPR link thought the Boy Scouts were doing something evil.

The good news about the extreme depravity we find ourselves in is that people have no excuses for not being able to spot wolves in sheep’s clothing.  In fact, the wolves got warm and took off the sheep’s clothing a long time ago.  Consider the UCC/UMC false teaching “Reverend” Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, who took a break from taking little girls to gay pride parades to bash the Boy Scouts:

Discrimination against people who are gay and lesbian is contrary to the Greatest Commandment.

The greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.  The god of Currie & Co. is obviously Satan, the god of this world, so I’ll concede that he does obey that command.  And don’t you love sermons by “reverends” who take 6 yr. old girls to gay pride parades?  Oddly, Chuck & Co. and their mainstream media accomplices forgot to tell you about another gay rights leader who was busted for child porn.

But for Christians who love the real God, we would seek to obey his commands and to protect the weak.

Few would question the overall value of the Boy Scout program.  But if the Boy Scouts are going to maintain that discrimination is a morally valid practice it is time for our churches to determine if the mission of the Boy Scouts is still compatiable with the mission of our churches.

Again, there is a grain of truth there.  Their “churches” have an entirely different mission than the real church.

Praise God that He has made the fakes so easy to spot!  Again, even a LGBTQ lawyer should applaud the Scouts for their decision.

  1. It’s funny how liberals hate the word “discrimination” as if it was a bad thing. Currie discriminates against those who follow the true teachings of the Bible. He discriminates against the Boy Scouts. Liberals discriminate against Christians all the time. But guess what, Chuckie boy, we also discriminate against criminals and put them in jail! Discrimination is an action we take many times a day.

    Home run.

    I have nothing against gays. I don’t care if they want to have commitment ceremonies, live together, buy a house together, do what-have-you in the bedroom. But I do care when what they do infringes on children’s rights (either by saying that they have a “right” to a child, or by promoting a culture that unravels the family) or women’s dignity.

    1. In sentiment, I agree. But in reality I cannot. The death penalty is reserved for those who literally take the life of another. And though the lives of the victims are so negatively impacted, they are not ended by the crimes of those like Sandusky.

      1. Marshal, I hate to even say this, but… I meant, and I’m not sure if I should be ashamed or not, but I mean NCAA death penalty for the football program. Sorry, guess that tells where my heart is… 😦

  3. I applaud the Boy Scouts, as I do Chick-fil-a and the Roman Catholic Church for their staunch support for Biblical truth regarding this issue. But I do not believe the reason for the Scout decision is based mostly on the threat of pedophilia. It is simply for the conflict of having someone who won’t do do his duty to God, which he swears routinely on his honor as a Scout, leading our young. They would not approve of an active thief leading troops, either.
