VICTORY... IN THE BATTLE FOR THE SCOUTS TODAY!
Your calls helped make the difference!
MIAMI-After receiving thousands of phone calls from human rights and social justice organizations such as the Christian Family Coalition (CFC), a campaign by homosexual extremists to force the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to abandon its common-sense policy requiring leaders to be morally straight has been stalled!
After the organization said last week it was considering a new policy that would allow local Scouting organizations to establish their own rules for membership, a tidal wave of opposition surged. CFC alone, generated nearly 2,000 telephone calls into the national headquarters of the BSA in the past week alone, urging the organization to keep its common-sense policy requiring leaders to be morally straight.
The BSA said in a statement today: “After careful consideration and extensive dialogue within the Scouting family, along with comments from those outside the organization, the volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Board concluded that due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy.”
Just last year, the organization formally reaffirmed its traditional position of banning homosexuals from the ranks. The announcement followed a two-year review of the policy. An 11-member committee of professional scout executives and adult volunteers unanimously concluded after a two-year study that the policy of barring homosexuals should be maintained. The executive committee of the BSA national executive board then announced that while not all board members “may personally agree with this policy, and may choose a different direction for their own organizations, BSA leadership agrees this is the best policy for the organization and supports it for the BSA.”
In 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the right of the organization to exclude homosexuals, because homosexual behavior violates the core values of the private organization.
