We're Freaking Doomed
Go about 21 minutes in, where the guy goes over the results of the survey that BSA did regarding the membership policy that does not allow gays to be members. The propaganda and indoctrination has worked, the country is going towards tolerance and acceptance of gays. We have lost the moral foundation of this country, because as the survey results show, the older generations are passing away and the younger generations replacing them are more accepting of gays.
Now, I don't care if someone's gay or not, as long as they keep it to themselves. I also don't agree with most discrimination against gays just because of that fact. But there's a big difference in accepting this stuff in general society and accepting it in the Boy Scouts. Boy Scouts is supposed to stand for something, and I don't give a damn what general society is doing, the Boy Scouts should be able to maintain their policies come Hell, high water, or lack of corporate donations.
This month, BSA is going to vote on whether or not to allow gay boys to be Scouts. They are not, for now at least, considering allowing gay men to be Scout leaders.
If this changes, I do not know if my church will continue sponsoring my sons' Troop and Pack. So that's one thing. Will I go to another so that we can continue in Scouting? I might do that as long as there are no gay boys or parents in that other Troop or Pack. But I'm thinking that there will be an alternate Scouting group that will be born from this along the lines of the American Heritage Girls. I may put my boys into that instead.
