Boy Scouts Hear From Connecticut

boyscouts

The Boy Scouts of America will be deciding next week whether to change its policy to allow openly homosexual men to hold leadership positions in its organization:

Peter Wolfgang, director of the conservative Family Institute of Connecticut, said that members have been calling the organization to express their concern over the proposed change. ”The concern is that we’re forcing adult notions of sexuality on young boys,” Wolfgang said.

FIC encourages all our members to follow the advice of our friends at the Family Research Council:

If you’ve tried to get through to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), you know it’s been tough. If you’ve wanted to express your concern about the BSA abandoning their longstanding policy of safeguarding Scouts by restricting openly homosexual Scout leaders from holding leadership positions, you may have been greeted by an endlessly ringing phone. This may be one instance in which the Boy Scouts were not prepared.

The BSA national leadership were not prepared for the thousands of Americans who were shocked to hear that an organization that could always be counted on for standing for what’s right was about to cave-in to homosexual activists and corporations which have been threatening the organization’s funding.

For generations, the BSA has shaped our nation’s moral character by teaching young men to do their duty to God and country. This is why, when the BSA board begins its annual meeting on Monday of next week, it is so important that you keep the pressure on, to show them how devastating this moral collapse will be for the Scouts and the country.

Please call the members of the BSA Board of Directors (sample call script below) and kindly urge them to stand strong and true to their timeless values:

Sample Phone Script:

Hello, my name is _________, from __________.

Thank you for your service as a board member of the Boy Scouts of America.

As you’re aware, a new proposal indicates that the Boy Scouts of America may revoke their longstanding policy of safeguarding Scouts by restricting homosexuals from holding leadership positions over boys. For decades, your national organization has kept the interest of the boys it serves as the focus of all its actions. No matter what, the Boy Scouts of America could be counted upon to do the right thing and not yield to any social pressure, and has thus far stood strong.

Please do not jeopardize the safety and moral integrity of Scouting in the interest of social activism. The proposal to relegate the decision on homosexual leaders to local chartered organizations sends the wrong signal from the national body: that political correctness ultimately triumphs over character.

Please retain the current long-held and time-tested policy regarding homosexual leadership and membership. America stands with you. Lead the way. Please stand strong.

Thank you, and God bless you.

Together, we can make a difference in turning the tide and keeping an honorable organization on an honorable path.

    Please keep the BSA as it was to be kept. A solid organization that has morals and GOD as the foundation for love of Country and service to others.
    I am an EAGLE SCOUT earned 1/5/1970.
    I will be ashamed if it is anything other than what the founders wanted it to be.
    Have the courage to keep SCOUTING what it was and what it is now, clean of the the things that are wrong today.
    Stand out as a SOLID Organization that past and future Scouts would be proud to say “I am a Boy Scout”.
    If you do allow known gays in I would most likely return MY EAGLE SCOUT BADGE.
    I could no longer be proud of the organization and would discourage any boys to join.
    DO THE RIGHT THING DO NOT RUIN THIS GREAT AMERICAN INSTITUTION “THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA”
    “GOD BLESS THE BSA”

    Many long time supporters will no longer be able in conscience to support the Boy Scouts if they change their policy.
