THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND

Boy Scouts Of America To Allow Homosexual Leaders And Members

| January 29, 2013

Will there be a merit badge for sodomy?

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27

From NBC News: The Boy Scouts of America, one of the nation’s largest private youth organizations, is actively considering an end to its decades-long policy of banning gay scouts or scout leaders, according to scouting officials and outsiders familiar with internal discussions.

If adopted by the organization’s board of directors, it would represent a profound change on an issue that has been highly controversial — one that even went to the US Supreme Court. The new policy, now under discussion, would eliminate the ban from the national organization’s rules, leaving local sponsoring organizations free to decide for themselves whether to admit gay scouts.

“The chartered organizations that oversee and deliver scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with their organization’s mission, principles or religious beliefs,” according to Deron Smith, a spokesman for the Boy Scouts’ national organization.

Individual sponsors and parents “would be able to choose a local unit which best meets the needs of their families,” Smith said.

The discussion of a potential change in policy is nearing its final stages, according to outside scouting supporters. If approved, the change could be announced as early as next week, after the BSA’s national board holds a regularly scheduled meeting.

Only seven months ago, the Boy Scouts affirmed a policy of banning gay members, after a nearly two-year examination of the issue by a committee of volunteers convened by national leaders of the Boy Scouts of America, known as the BSA.

In a statement last July affirming the ban, its national executive board called it “the best policy for the organization.” But since then, a scouting official said, local chapters have been urging a reconsideration. “We’re a grassroots organization. This is a response to what’s happening at the local level,” the official said.

Two corporate CEOs on BSA’s national board, Randall Stephenson of AT&T and James Turley of Ernst & Young, have also said they would work to end the ban. Stephenson is next in line to be the BSA’s national chairman. During the 2012 presidential campaign, both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney said the BSA should admit gay scouts and scout leaders.

About 50 local United Way groups and several corporations and charities have concluded that the ban violates their non-discrimination requirements and have ceased providing financial aid to the Boy Scouts. An official of The Human Rights Campaign, an advocate for gay rights, said HRC planned to downgrade its non-discrimination ratings for corporations that continue to give the BSA financial support. source – NBC News

    Wait til these sodomites meet with The God of Israel on Judgement Day and it aint going to be pretty!

    • ARIZONA says:

      ITS even worse then you think James,down at the boy scout ranch at cimerron new mexico,the philmont scout ranch,we watched as the scouts were being trained by DHS to go to VETERANS homes to take their weapons,this will result in every scout involved being killed,something to think about of you have a scout in your family……………………..

  2. Faith says:

    Now the End of the Boy Scouts as we have known it.

    No WAY I would ever allow my son to go camping in a situation like this.

    • Rachael Jean says:

      I feel the same way as you. Trust your children with no one. I pulled my children out of elementary school mostly for the reason that the school psychologist is an openly homosexual man who was severely ruining my childrens education. There is no safe places left to raise our children but under the supervision of their own parents.

      • RubyLillian says:

        My husband and I had the same exact discussion today. My 16 year old niece has three options of language classes..spanish..French ….ARABIC! !!!!

        • Ryan says:

          Really now, and what’s so wrong with that? Your child has an option to learn another language and expand their mindset, intelligence, and socialization within today’s expanding society.

          • The purpose of freedom Ryan is to be able to choose not to be forced to only a few selected things by those who have decided what is to be the choices.

            In Jesus’s words HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Rachael Jean says:

    I had high hopes of putting my 3 sons in the military some day, but now with the openly homosexual policy and now even the boy scouts there is no way this would even be an option for them.

    I’m shutting my door, sitting my kids down, homeschooling them from the Bible, and waiting for the end to come. There is no future left for them in this country.

  4. Tragic lucifer is really rallying daily thru out the world and who cares very few sell outs all around well I firmly believe when the mark of the beast comes upon the majority of the sheeple will take

  5. RubyLillian says:

    This is sad news. I know previously the Boy Scouts stood their ground and said no. I geuss they caved to the pressure of society…last days for sure. Everything that was an American treasure is disappearing.

  6. johnjim says:

    There’s only one step left. When they come knocking on my door demanding that I hand over my two special needs sons, then I will lock the door and pray fervently for fire to come down out of Heaven.

  7. Christocentric says:

    If anyone has any morals this will be the end for scouting.

    • We plan to pull out our three sons when this happens. They have been in since TIGER CUBS and two of them are right at Eagle! One getting ready to plan his ceremony. I am SO proud of him though! He said he doesn’t even know if he will put it on a resume…he feels it is “tainted” now and he is right :(

  8. Arley says:

    Ex Scout Master, now Retired.
    BSA, Ponder please: If you cross that bridge, and allow Homosexual Scouts, and Leaders, the Government will ‘burn the bridge, as soon as you cross, and you will never be able to return to what we have stood for.’
    If you need chose between God, and Country, please chose God. It is better to be murdered, ‘in the faith,’ than to live, ‘separated from the faith.’ AMEN

  9. ron48 says:

    I am deeply saddened to hear this,I had so hoped that the BSA would have been able to hold out against the attackes of the devil,scouting has always been such a strong supporter and teacher of high values and moral tenents.Any way you say it to be called a homosexual is a disgrace and certainally not something to be proud of, all we can do is really pray that God would open their eyes to the sin of homosexuallity and try to help those young men get on the right path and not the path that leads to distruction.

  10. Annette Webb says:

    My husband is a Venture Crew leader (BSA organization) and our son attends scouts. If this passes, we will end any affiliation with the BSA! This is an evil attack on the moral values of most of the scouting organization! You can choose for your own local Scout group to exclude gays, but you still go to camps and jamborees with all the troops! No way do I want my son in this type of setting. Disgusted and disheartened that this organization is even considering this! Here is the number for the Boy Scouts of America that you need to call and make your voice heard! 972-580-2000. Please ask them to remain firm in their moral values and respect the right of parents who do not want this as a part of scouts!

  11. Raymond says:

    If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13

    Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. Romans 1: 24, 25, 26, 27.

    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: forall that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 22:5.

    Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner,giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 7

    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. 1 Corinthians 6: 9.

    Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine. 1 Timothy 1:9,10.

    And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. And if a woman approach unto any beast,and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Lev 20: 15, 16.

    Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Leviticus 18: 22, 23.

    • Well said Raymond but what most people do not understand is that this is a direct judgement from God for not recognizing him as THE CREATOR.

      Romans 1: 21-23
      21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles (EVOLUTION).

      Romans 1: 24-27
      24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.(GAYS)
      25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

      26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. (GAYS) 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men (GAYS), and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (DISEASE, AIDS, ILLNESSES)

        Parents Beware
        Issue Date: January/February 2013
        http://www.chick.com/bc/2013/beware.asp

        Satan’s struggle to capture the next generation continues in our government schools. Parents who try to object to the humanist and sodomite indoctrination, are increasingly faced down by emboldened teachers and administrators backed by sympathetic judges and legislators.

        Someone has said that, as California goes, so goes the nation. Bills signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown may be precursors for other states. SB 1172 forbids counselors and therapists to handle cases of gender-confused, underage children who seek counseling to escape same-sex desires. SB 1856 instructs foster parents who are supervised by the state to positively support homosexuality, bisexuality, cross dressing, and sex changes for kids placed in their care.

        Last year another bill established “Harvey Milk Gay Day” as a recommended day of recognition for the murdered homosexual San Francisco politician. Students were to read a favorable biography, attend assemblies that promoted the same-sex lifestyle and were given Milk Duds candy in celebration of this known child sexual predator.

        One college in Washington found itself having to allow a “biological” man, who claimed to be really a woman, use of the women’s dressing facilities in the swimming pool area. He/she chose to relax in the pool area, with male genitals exposed, in view of both college women and local 6-year-olds who had come in to use the pool. A new law against discrimination of “transgenders” forbid the college to do anything more than erect screens in the area.

        Besides the promotion of perversion, all evidence of godliness and Christianity is under siege by schools from elementary to universities. Christian legal assistance organizations such as Alliance Defense Fund, American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) and others are in a running battle with school districts that try to discriminate against Christians and Christian organizations in many ways.

        Small churches without worship facilities often look to local schools that are vacant on the weekends. In the past, these have been offered free or nearly free of charge. Now they are beginning to charge large fees when other organizations get the use free. From local churches to international organizations such as the Gideons and Child Evangelism Fellowship, legal help is increasingly required to keep the ministry avenues open.

        At the higher education level, Christian clubs in high schools and colleges are being denied benefits given to other clubs on campus unless they adhere to the “anti-discrimination” policies of the school. With homosexuals being added as a protected category along with race and ethnicity, they are pressuring clubs whose charters require prospective leaders to sign a statement of faith. Since sin is now legal, Christian clubs are being pressured to allow perverts into leadership.

        Most of this is below the radar of many Christian parents. If you have children in school at any level, you need to talk with your kids about their teachers, know what they are being taught and be ready to help them counter Satan’s lies. Remember, the culture is no longer your friend. Children must be aware we are in enemy territory and must be equipped to stand for God and Biblical truth. Many parents have told us at Chick Publications that reading Chick tracts over the years has strengthened their children’s understanding of God’s way and their resolve to follow Him in their lives.

      • Raymond says:

        The Dark Side of ‘Gay’

        The happy face of media-glorified homosexuality masks a dark side that is seldom talked about. Family Research Institute, a Colorado-based think tank specializes in studies related to family issues. For more than two decades they have researched homosexuality’s health threats and social damage ignored by Big Media or government agencies.

        By collecting information from the obituaries in homosexual periodicals, FRI produced evidence that the sexually active homosexual male had an average life expectancy of about 42 years —before the advent of AIDS. Then it dropped to 39. Only 1 percent live past age 65.

        Two factors emerged as the cause of this shortening of the life span: rampant spreading of sexually transmitted disease (STD) and violence. But this violence was not what is commonly portrayed: attacks by homophobes on helpless homosexuals. It was primarily within their own kind. FRI reports that the top six U.S. serial killers were all involved in homosexuality. In the past 5 years, 22% of 2,281 male homosexuals reported gay-on-gay physical violence and 5.1% reported gay-on-gay rape. Homosexually partnered adults are 100 times more likely to report domestic violence than heterosexual married adults. (See http://www.familyresearchinst.org.)

        Few today remember that, when AIDS was discovered it was called GRID, Gay Related Immune Deficiency. Initially, the HIV virus quickly spread among the highly promiscuous male homosexuals. Inevitably, bisexuals introduced it to promiscuous heterosexuals and it went mainstream. Pressure over the name escalated until Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) became more generally accepted, masking the obvious connection to the “gay” community.

        However, this did not change the reality. In August of 2009, LifeSiteNews reported: “An official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced the CDC’s estimate Monday that in the United States, AIDS is fifty times more prevalent among men who have sex with men (‘MSM’) than the rest of the population.”

        It is testimony to the power of the homosexual activist lobby that AIDS patients escaped the normal quarantine procedures used when such a disease surfaces. Instead, the entire medical field began instituting privacy policies that ended up protecting the records of those who wished to hide their infection and thus their sinful lifestyle. In recent years, over 50 STDs have been identified. Both heterosexual and homosexual promiscuity had contributed to this as sexual standards have deteriorated. When the sin of abortion was first legalized and then the sodomy laws removed, the STD epidemic exploded.

        Contrary to the modern public image of the loving, committed, homosexual couple raising happy children, FRI found that most of these so-called marriages were “open,” meaning that each partner was free to find other hook-ups. It was not uncommon for homosexual males to have up to 500 partners in their lifetime.

        America continues to legalize and glorify sin. No wonder our economy is tanking and freak storms are increasing. Righteousness has exalted America, but now, sin has us in reproach (Proverbs 14:34). (See tract Somebody Angry?)

        Soul winners, we must do more to get the gospel out. Our culture is rapidly succumbing to the lie that same-sex marriage, etc. is okay. If we speak up against it, some of those on the fence will have the courage to also stand for righteousness. It may be awkward to hand a Sin City orUninvited tract to someone, but if you leave them lying around, someone will pick them up and be informed of God’s unalterable disgust at this abomination and His love for those sad souls caught in it. For more information, see the Chick paperback, Hot Topics, which covers more on the source of homosexual behavior and how God is judging America for her sin.

  12. As Alcoholics Anonymous says Why would an alcoholic go into a bar if he stopped drinking? Keep entering the bar and sooner or later you will drink,99 times out of 100. Apply to the Boy Scouts and it IS the same arithmetic.

  13. In order to correct this judgment from God we have to:

    2 Chronicles 7:14
    If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    If we can’t teach God in schools then we can’t teach evolution. FIRST EVOLUTION MUST BE REMOVED FROM ALL SCHOOL BOOKS AND MATERIAL.

    Its fine if our laws say we can’t teach God in schools but at the same rate we are being hypocrites when we allow evolution to be taught as its in most all the books even in religious schools.

    This is what makes God angry and judgments follow.

    EVOLUTION MUST GO FIRST THEN REPENT AND TURN FROM WICKED WAYS.

  14. RubyLillian says:

    The devil really is clever. Looking back historically just at evolution being taught~once that is in the schools and the children learn this they cast doubt on Gods beginning not what their school taught them. Incideous and evil. Honestly I think the majority of kids from grammar to college believe in evolution. Once our schools are taken over we lose our children.

  15. jeremiah says:

    ‘Educate’ your own children in the ways of the LORD. Men to be protecters and providers, women to suckle and nurture the young children. Dads get together and take own your families on camping trips. Men,five generations of state schooling has de-skilled and de-educated you, taught you to accept, step by step, slice by slice, every depraved and heathen philosophy, state propaganda..Re-learn how to learn! Re-learn how to lead your household.

    • Annette Webb says:

      I agree Jeremiah! Educate your own children in the ways of The Lord! The sad thing about scouting are the boys who have no role models in their lives! No one to teach them how to be e Godly man! The Christian Bible believing and following denominations who sponsor most all of the BSA troops and packs need to disassociate themselves from BSA and form their own boys mentoring groups as a ministry to reach out to young men and boys who need Godly moral guidance! I pray that all you Christian men step up to the plate and take part in the moral upbringing of these children! If we don’t do something the numbers of good and Godly men in this country will continue to decline! Keep praying that our efforts and voices will be heard by BSA and that they will strike down any move to change policy and when they do, we form a grassroots uprising in the BSA and kick these leaders butts off and out of the BSA and put Godly Bible believing men in their place! Sadly, it all comes to down to corporate sponsorship! Hope there are men in the BSA with the guts to stand up to them!

  16. ” For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:…”
    (Proverbs 23:7)
    ” And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all the same language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”
    (Genesis 11:6)

    The course of this world is rapidly accelerating toward judgment. In the example of the tower of Babel and of Sodom and Gomorrah, we can see that there is no stopping the rapid infection of sin once it is given free course. Looking back on thae past four years we can see the fruit of America’s and the “civilized” world’s self indulgent and godless ways and the only way to stop this will be by the outstretched hand of Almighty God. (Jeremiah 21:5) ect….

    The more I read and hear about the deteriorating condition of our country, the sadder I become until I stop and allow the Lord to correct my thoughts. This is a very exciting time in which to live as we have the privelege as a child of God to see his plan unfolding before us. The thing that has kept the Saints of God going over all time is the “Blessed Hope”. Without the promise of the return of Jesus Christ given to us by his resurrection from the dead, we might as well go shoot pool or go fishing. This is a special time to us who are alive and remain.

    “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith;”… (Hebrews 12:2)

    ” For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:…….For therein is the righteouosness of God revealed from FAITH to FAITH: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16-17)

    As the fullness of the Gentiles draws near, let us encourage one another as we see the day approaching.

    Be well.

    will there be a merit badge in homosexuality and techniques?

  19. Ruby Lillian says:

    Girl Scouts have an affiliation with Planned Parenthood. I was VERY sad to hear that last year. I did a lot of research to verify it before I refused to buy another box of cookies. Sadly, it was true, so long thin mints and tagalongs.

    • ted says:

      Google girl scouts and new age,, sad and scary. The girl scouts have gone clear over board into New Age stuff,,, and a lot of the national leaders are lesbians. There is a very conservative girl scouting group,, can’t remember the name,, but i saw something on it the other day—–I will never spend another dime on Girl Scout cookies

  20. Debra says:

    Sad, So Sad, that our country is being destroyed for all these sins piling up even in the face of all the warnings we have gotten already. Storms are increasing, famine is coming without rain for crops and feed for cows etc.., tornados, fires, earthquakes, plagues, etc.. 9-11 should have been a real wake up call, but people have continued to go from bad to worse! God would have to pardon Sodom and Gom. if these things aren’t worth the judgment of God! I’m upset that the churches aren’t speaking up more against these things! Where is the fear of God in his church? My heart aches for the country of our forefathers who dedicated this country to God from the very beginning. They must be turning over in their graves over all this departure from righteousness and shocked by the lack of concern! I pray for a real repentance to take place in the church as well as in the rest of the USA! When the boy scouts and girl scouts go to the devil, you know we’re in trouble and there’s no hope for sure! We can only hope that the Lord see’s those who grieve as Lot did outside the gates of sodom, and will keep them safe during this continuing judgment!

    • ted says:

      God really holds the Church accountable for the state of a nation,,,,in the last 100 years or so, the church has basically been lost and ignorant of His Word , sin, repentance, hell,punishment, prophecy, and just the basics of scripture and salvation. it has been sucked into the dark whirlpool of the prosperity gospel, the ungodly emergent church movement, and “Jesus is pleased w/ us as long as we mean well.” Most churches don’t speak up b/c they are not able to discern in a Godly, Biblical way. We must pursue The Word w/ an open heart to the leading of the Holy Spirit and be aware of and repentant of our sin,,,,,,

    • This country was built by God there is no question. When you go to the roots. Gods hand has built it. That is why its going to be rebuilt again for the millennium. God will start with the foundations though, so we are going to be turned upside down and backwards before it is complete.

  21. RubyLillian says:

    Amen Debra! The parents today seem more concerned that their children’s lunches are organic and peanut free rather than worrying about evolution and gay acceptance being taught to them in the schools. Mother earth is being taught not Father God.

  22. Debra says:

    Well said Ruby! That’s why the Lord is going to test his church through the tribulation with the wrath of satan overcoming them according to REV. 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, tongues, and nations.
    Rev.13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him(ant-christ), whose names are not written in the Book of Life of The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world! There will be a cost for not standing up as Christ’s body of believers! Our faith will be tested like never before! I’m filling my lamp with oil while there’s still time and trying to help others to fill theirs too! Things are getting darker and darker and we as christians must shine as lights to a dark lost world. May the Lord continue to guide and lead us into all truth and give us decernment about good and evil! Shalom!

  23. RubyLillian says:

    That’s is my prayer also Debra! I see things heating up in Israel and know things are going to become very interesting. I can already spiritually feel the evil coming over America. Its intensifying all the time.

  24. Debra says:

    Christ is still going to be doing great things for his people in the deepest darkness so we will see that too! He told us not to fear because these things had to come to pass before his coming. His word says in amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the Day of the Lord! to what end it for you? The Day of the Lord is Darkness, and not light.
    19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear Met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a Serpant Bit him.
    20 Shall not the Day of The Lord be darkness, and not light? Even very Dark, and no brightness in it?
    That’s why your feeling the darkness in America! God bless you my sister!

  25. David will probably rule the new America when the awards are handed out at the feast!

  26. I have read many posts on different blogs where so called “Christians” have claimed that Jesus never condemned homosexuality. However, these charlatans reveal their ignorance of God’s Word when making this claim.

    John 14:26 clearly states the following:
    “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”

    We are also expressly told in Romans 1:24-32 by the Apostle Paul, who in the power of the God’s Holy Spirit authored half of the New Testament, the following:

    24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
    26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
    28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

    This sounds much like the tolerance of evil behavior that is advocated by so many today. Salvation only comes through repentance of sin, all sin, and that includes the sin of homosexuality.

  27. Sadly, we will be pulling our three sons OUT of scouts if they remove the ban. One son was preparing his Eagle CEREMONY (meaning…he completed his Eagle…was ready to accept the award)….our second son (who has been in since TIGER CUBS) was getting ready to plan his Eagle project, our third son just moved up from Cubs to Boy Scouts. We REFUSE to be in an organization that allows gays to serve. This is clearly against God’s Word. Step off His Word, you will fall. This is the end of scouting as we know it :(

  28. Debra says:

    Thanks Raymond for all the wonderful scriptures you gave to show how God feels about homosexuality. If people don’t respect the bible and what it says about this Abominational sin and it’s consequences, there is no hope for them and all they have to look forward to is judgment and hell fire. Jesus came to deliver us all from our sins so that we could live a life free from sin and for eternity with Him in his kingdom! May the Lord open blind eyes and deaf ears to see and hear the truth and repent while there is still time! God Bless you brother!

  29. Debra says:

    William, Great word! Thanks for joining our ranks and setting those doubtful so called christians right about the word of God and what is sinful and what is righteous! The church needs to wake up and repent from being complacent about all these unrighteous laws that the government is trying to pass from state to state. We are receiving God’s judgment right now with earthquakes, floods, storms, famine, sicknesses, hurricanes, tornados, economic woes, etc… Alot of these judgments are hitting on the day or near the days when our gov. is meeting to divide the land of Israel, or having gay parades, or setting new sinful laws in place. We as the church need to fast, pray, repent, and seek God with all of our hearts for this country and ourselves! The USA is really on a slippery slope! I’m glad to hear some folks will pull their kids out to protest the change if it comes in the boy scouts to allow homo’s in as leaders and scouts! The Lord will bless those who stand for righteousness and take note who they are for the record books in heaven! We must all take a stand or judgment will fall on our heads too!

    It is sad day indeed when one of Americas most trusted and revered org. can let it’s self surcome to the pressure of a minority group to allow the homos to join it.I just wonder what the Church’s that sponsor the BSA will do.Hopefully they will pull their sponsorship and put the boys, young men, in things like Royal Rangers,or similar such activities.

    The boy scouts have put off making a decision about changing their policy about homo’s because of all the uproar about it through the internet and media! Praise God! Hopefully they will not go through with allowing homo’s in later. We need to keep praying for righteousness and the fear of the Lord to prevail against the abomnible change!

  32. Please BSA, do NOT let this happen. Protection of our boys should come before politics and money.
