a brilliant army major creates boy scouts troops in afghanistan

Talk about going beyond one's call of duty!

U.S. Army Maj. Glenn Battschinger is one extraordinary fellow!

The father of two boys was stationed in Afghanistan back in 2010 and was missing his kids and helping them with their Eagle Scout advancement.

To ease some of his homesickness, the Army Major decided to help some of the children whom he saw everyday.

After getting permission from his superiors, he gathered 40 of the boys around one day, and started to teach them the way of the Boy Scouts - including the program's pledge. He also got creative with the famous handkerchiefs that boy scouts wear by using material from parachute cords to replicate those knots!

Here's what Glenn Battschinger said:

Boy Scouts SHUT DOWN The Amazing Troop That Stuck By Their Gay Scoutmaster!

Wow.

Punishing children for doing the right thing?

What the EFF are the Boy Scouts of America doing?!?!

When the charter troop in Rainier Beach United Methodist Church in Seattle of Washington decided to take a stand and support their fired-for-being-gay scoutmaster Geoffrey McGrath after his release in March, you'd think the BSA might take note of this troop's admirable qualities of sticking together.

Nope!

They revoked the

Walt Disney World Ends Its Support Of Boy Scouts Over Ban On LGBT Leaders!

walt disney ends its support of boy scouts over ban on lgbt leaders

Walt Disney World is taking a stand!

A stand against the Boy Scouts of America!

The controversial group's refusal to end its ban on openly LGBT boy scout leaders kind of negates its decision to end the ban on openly gay youth.

After all, what are you teaching kids when you tell them to pour their heart and soul into something only until they're 18 years old, and then they're shunned by the organization that they'd loved so much? Doesn't make much sense to us.

And apparently Walt Disney World feels the same way because they are NOT going to keep going with their Ears to You program, which would match

Gay Boy Scouts May Soon Become A Reality!!!

Filed under: PolitikInspirationEducational

A petition of over 275,000 signatures has caught the attention of the Boy Scouts of America who will review their policies, and could possibly vote on a restructure of those same policies by early 2013.

The Boy Scouts will consider a new policy for 2013 that would allow local charter organizations to decide for themselves whether to accept gay members and leaders.

The movement has been led by Zach Wahls, a viral superstar, and 20-year-old boy scout who met with high ranking Boy Scouts of America officials last week to chat about the huuuge petition he was admirably able to put together.

Here's what he said:

"One, is the fact that they were even willing to consider it — this is a really big development. It has also happened at a time when we have this level of online mobilization … that allows real change."

The movement was rallied around Jennifer Tyrrell, who can be seen in the video (above), after she was fired from her 7-year-old son's group as Cub Scout leader because she is a lesbian.

Here's what Zach said about Tyrrell and the movement:

"Change happens when everyday people like Jennifer are brave enough to share personal stories that inspire hundreds of thousands to take action, and that's what Change.org is all about."

The proposal will go into a Boy Scouts of America subcommittee, which will make a recommendation to the national executive board, a process that will be complete likely by May 2013.

Vote for change!
