Carly Rae Jepsen-less Boy Scout Jamboree Gets 3 Doors Down To Perform Despite LGBT Inequities!

boy scout jamboree three doors down replaces carly rae jepsen train equal rights lgtb

The Boy Scouts of America made a lot of progress this past year, but, frankly, the group still hasn't done enough!

Carly Rae Jepsen and Train were so displeased with the organization's continued intolerance that she dropped out of the BSA's National Jamboree months ago, refusing to perform for them until total equality was reached.

Apparently, though, not every musician is as concerned with equal rights and the fate of the LGBT community.

3 Doors Down signed on to headline tomorrow's concert, regardless of the fact that the policy change on permitting gay troop members isn't going through until January and openly gay troop leaders continue to remain barred from volunteering for the foreseeable future.

The bands rep isn;t commenting, but we want to know why the Here Without You singers performs for a group that condones sexual orientation-based discrimination!? !

The Boy Scouts do good within many different communities, there is no denying that, but many of their policies are antiquated and exclusionary!!

We were proud of the way CRJ stood up for ALL of her fans earlier this year when the Call Me Maybe singer tweeted:

Hopefully 3 Doors Down comes to its senses and stands up for what's right!!

    the Republicans are outdated and shit, but doesnt stop them having too much power. if the boy scounts want to be anti gay then let them, there will be a time whent hey loose too muvh power or cant get the numbers, no need to force the issue (as you do).

    The only ones hurt by this are the kids who are missing out on a show they would have really enjoyed. I don't think 3 Doors Down resonate with young kids as much as Carley Rae Jepsen and Train. So they object to essentially a corporate policy and take it out on the kids! Completely unprofessional coming from someone who has been in the biz for 30 years. It'd be like being booked for a wedding at a hotel and then finding out that the hotel doesn't book gay weddings. Well… the families expecting you to be there are not going to applaud your decision based on that policy when you bail on their special day. You be a pro and do your fucking job. Guess Carley and Train don't quite grasp that concept. The show must go on, hunnies, the show must go on!

    Apparently everyone has forgotten who the Scouts really are. Let me remind you they are kids around the ages of 6-18. So when it all boils down the only ones who are getting hurt are the kids. The kids are innocent in this matter but are the ones being punished. Why punish the innocent for crimes they have not commetted? Is this the only way we know how to teach our children, our future? Are we as adults currently giving an equal oppertunity to the kids themselves because they enjoy what they do in the scouts? In the end every last on of us is in the wrong because while we are busy waging wars on each other we have hurt the innocent.

    Please tell me while everyone one is putting the scouts down who's going to help with the funding?! Everyone wants a change but inorder to make a change you must actively be part of the change. Currently the only thing I'm seeing is everyone turning their backs to the scouts but I have yet to hear of anyone offering to help with the funding they could lose. In order for change you must actively be involved with the change otherwise all your doing is nothing.

    Maybe because a bunch of innocent children shouldn't be punished for the ignorance of a group of adults. The kids didn't do anything wrong, so why should they be punished?
