Boy Scouts May Lift Ban On Gays!!

Boy Scouts Rethink Gay Ban

The Boy Scouts of America always endeavor to Be Prepared, but it seems they were not quite ready for the public's reaction to their ban on gay scouts and leaders.

As recently as July of last year the Scouts re-affirmed their No Gays Allowed policy, but the times they are a-changin'!

Many charities, businesses, and United Way groups have stopped donating to the Boy Scouts due to their discriminatory practices, causing the organization to rethink their ways.

The BSA's board of directors are reportedly "actively considering" changing their national policy to allow individual charters to allow in homosexual members if they so choose. Spokesman Deron Smith says:

Boy Scouts President: 'We're Sorry'

Filed under: Sad SadIcky Icky Diaper Poo

The Boy Scouts of America are due to release a rather large collection of secret files that contain the names of potential child molesters.

Although there is no timetable for how far back these files go back, if one considers that the boy scouts have been around since 1910 - it could go pretty damn far back.

The president of the infamous organization has issued an apology

Kentucky Girl Scout Leaders Condemn Boy Scouts For Kicking Out Gay Scoutmaster

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

Girls rule and boys drool!

The Girl Scouts of the USA have supported people of all race, religion and sexuality since 1991 and are shaming the Boy Scouts of America for the organizations discrimination against open homosexuals.

The most recent story of Boy Scout bigotry comes from Kentucky where Greg Bourke, an Assistant Scoutmaster, got the boot from the organization after he revealed he was gay and had raised two children with his partner of thirty years.

Thank goodness for the big hearts and open minds of Girl Scout leaders though.

While he is no longer welcome to participate in BSA with his boy, he's still an active leader in the Girl Scouts with his daughter and the organization is going to bat for him.

In a letter condemning the BSA for their discrimination against Bourke, co-leader Kim Haydon reached out to the executive of the Boy Scouts’ Lincoln Heritage Council and wrote:

Mitt Romney Boy Scout Ban

Interesting…!

Well, this doesn’t make much sense, now does it??

Back in June, we showed you a video of Mitt Romney from 1994, proclaiming his support of the Boy Scouts of America and his views on its gay members.

Boy Scouts Uphold Gay Ban, Celebs Respond

Ricky Martin

It's a sad day for civil rights.

After 2 years of evaluation, the Boy Scouts of America has finally come to a decision regarding its years-long ban on homosexual members, and the news is not good.

The Boy Scouts have decided to continue the discriminatory policy.

This means they will continue to ban openly gay boys from being scouts, grown men from being masters, and parents from participating with their children.

Come on, guys! It's 2012! How many people have to tell you how wrong you are before you see it?!

Stars Ricky Martin, Josh Hutcherson, and Julianne Moore publicly condemned the Scouts' position, along with many business leaders and even several Eagle Scouts, the top level scouts can reach.

GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said it best:

"It's unfair policies like this that contribute to a climate of bullying in our schools and communities. Since when is that a value worth teaching young adults?"

The Boy Scouts are definitely NOT getting badges in equality, justice, or common frikkin' sense!
