Barack Obama Opposes Boy Scouts Banning Gays!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspirationBarack ObamaLGBT


And the Prez get's a badge for being a bad *ss for equality!

President Barack Obama, who is also the honorary president OF the Boy Scouts of America, has joined presidential candidate Mitt Romney in OPPOSING the organization's ban on non-straight boy scouts and scout leaders!


White House representative Shin Inouye stated Wednesday:

“The President believes the Boy Scouts is a valuable organization that has helped educate and build character in American boys for more than a century. He also opposes discrimination in all forms, and as such opposes this policy that discriminates on basis of sexual orientation.”

While the progressive President's stance on the blatantly discriminatory issue isn't a major shocker, seeing as he's already announced his love for all of Dorothy's companions, the fact that both Barack AND Mitt are against the ban is a gynourmous blow to those who support it.

Come on BS Leaders!

Your president AND the potential future president (eek!) are calling you out on your homophobic, toxic, bull sh*t ban! Get with the future world and stop living in an ignorant past!

    He is pandering for the homo vote. He went from against it, to his opinion "evolving," and then in a very short time, and in an election year, he's suddenly supportive. IF he gets re-elected, don't look for him to push for your homo "rights" in legislation. People have the right to be against gay marriage and private organizations have the right to shut out the gay agenda. Obama's shift on the homo issue is indicative of one thing and one thing only: He knows you gays will line up behind him, like sheep, and vote for him, and he'll laugh up his sleeve because he knows he'll do NOTHING FOR YOU. He offers words, and that's it. The only toxic individual around here, homo, is YOU. The people pretty much spoke when they supported Chick-fil-A. It's time for you to wake up and stop trying to bully people, ass clown. It's time for you to ask yourself why your tactics always fail and why your visitors hold you in so much contempt. You have issues. And you're a failure.

    Well, how coincidental that he is all of the sudden for gay marriage, and for gay boyscout leaders when it's election time. I wonder why the change of heart? It can't be that he is pandering to the homo's no, not at all, i'm sure he is extremely sincere.

    Considering that the total gay population is 10% at most, and the population of those who are anti-gay is considerably higher than 10%, he would be better off catering to the bigots. But maybe the total population of people who are no longer willing to accept legislated discrimination has risen to the point where they outnumber those who want to discriminate. I don't care what his motivation is, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.

    So what has he done for gay marriage? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! He says he supports it, yeah, great lip service.

  5. 5

    Makes no sense to ban gays as the majority of pedophiles are closet gays. Openly gay people are a less risk to rape kids than the closet freaks who pretend they are straight.

  6. 6

    Of course he does! It's an election year! He's going to pander to every single group to ensure he gets all the votes he needs. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who sees through this bullsh*t.

    Re: thebigboot – He cannot force the states to legalize it, moron.

    Re: overthere – Why not? He forced states to change laws on unemployment in order to get money. Why wouldn't he want to force them now?

    Yet again… why do gays have to FORCE themselves on everyone? Ok so the boy scouts don't want gays to participate due to their beliefs…. SO WHAT? SO why doesn't the gays start a program that is like the scouts and make gays welcome. Why does everyone HAVE to accept gays? Keep forcing it on everyone… as you can see by the CFA situation people are fed up with being forced to accept something and if they don't they get called names (ahem PEREZ). It's a difference of opinion people. You can't make people agree with you 100 percent.
    It's really a simple solution. Start your own organization and leave the BS ALONE!!

    Re: Midwest_Warrior – They are not forcing themselves on anyone, they are just trying to get equal opportunities and end discrimination.

    Mitt Romney spoke against the BSA banning gay members in 1994. So it isn't just Obama.

    Re: rosebud99
    They are a private organization that can choose to accept members the follow their values. Last I checked being a Boy Scout isn't a right. Let them start their own organization for gay scouts. Is that so hard? Nobody is telling them they can't yet they want to force the BS to let them join? Sounds to me like it's alot of drama over nothing…. again. I've never seen a group of people so adamant about making people accept them with open arms and rainbow hugs. It won't happen and trying to bully people into wont make friends "on the other side" either.

    Re: overthere – Wow, you sure look stupid. Of course he can, federal law ALWAYS trumps state law. Just ask Arizona about their immigration fight with the fed.

    You know this is just pandering, don't you Perez? Seriously. Can't even imagine that you would think he is doing this for any other reason. Same goes for the latinos and immigration. I guess if you are gay or latino you would vote for him either way because the outcome you want is the same, but come on now, he's not a good guy like you claim. Also, I have no problem with banning gay scout leaders from boy scouts. Scouts are a private organization and if you are gay why would you be so hell bent on joining an organization that is not for you? That would be like a white person insisting on joining an all black club or an all latino club. Get real Perez!

    Such a bad idea on just so many levels
    For most little boys everything is sexual, and adding into the mix that there will be gay scoutmaster,and gay scouts, you know the lawsuits will be rolling in
    Just think of this scenario,Rosie is a Girl Scout leader, she has invited a troop of young girls(her cutie petuties) to come and have a sleep over at her house, How comfortable would you be as a parent ?????

    This man literally names me want to vomit. He is so desperate that he is wildly running from group to group, pandering for their votes.

    I am so embarrassed that this man is president. If I have to see him or that big amazon wife of his on one more talk show, blood will probably shoot out of my eyes.

    89 days and this moron's parage is over. THANK GOD!

    Re: Midwest_Warrior – That's right! My Country Club don't acept Jews and Blacks! They should star their own Country Clubs !

    Who cares when, today, he basically said he wants to national all US industries.

  19. 19

    Not voting for him, sorry - like they say, fooled me once …

    Gay marriage would not be something I would pick as a major issue as opposed to the economy, unemployment, etc.

  20. 20

    Well if both of these candidates want to act this way, it sounds like we need a write in! Even if by chance Obama gets re-elected at least he'll realize half of the US doesn't want him in office.

    Amazing how people just blindly accept, agree and listen to him. It's obvious homo talk is popular now due to the chick-fil-a thing..of course he's going to hop on the bandwagon and pander for the fruit vote..Sad people are too stupid to realize it. He's done it for hispanics, he's done it for gays, next its blacks. then whites, then he'll try to get the republican vote

  23. 23

    Boyscouts are for very young children. Children at that age should not even know or think about sexuality no matter if its gay/straight/bi..They are there to learn to tie knots, archery,etc..Not worry about asking questions like "why do you like boys when you're a boy" Children that are boyscout ages don't even know what being gay is, nor do they even know..Give me a break.

    Wow you must be god to know that all gays are easily manipulated? Seriously think before you type
