President Barack Obama:
Boy Scouts should be
open to gay members

Dallas Morning News & Wire Services, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/3/2013 5:31:56 PM

President Barack Obama on Sunday said Scouting should be open to gay members. Details to come. The Scouts´ national leadership is mulling scrapping the mandatory exclusion of gay members. Instead, the group could allow different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units to decide for themselves how to address the issue — either maintaining the exclusion or opening up their membership. Even though the Irving-based Boy Scouts reaffirmed the no-gays policy just seven months ago, the proposal is expected to be discussed, and possibly voted on, at the meeting of the Scouts´ national executive board,

Did he go on to proudly suggest if he had a son, the boy would be a gay Boy Scout?

If the Scouts will allow homos to join, then they must allow girls to join. There is no difference, sexuality-wise. Both the homos and the girls are attracted to the boys in the Scouts.

There have always been gay people in every organization known to man. If gay people follow the same rules as everybody else in that organization, I have no objection.

My children had gay teachers in theater, music and dance and didn´t suffer for it, but they were just regular people with no agenda. Today,everything has an agenda.

#5 that´s true, when it isn´t being done as social engineering.Some people in the Scouts are very Religious and take the oath seriously. Maybe they can just remove the God portion out of it...

The original structure was family structure.
Worked OK for a few thousand years.
Now we have government structure.
A few years, a few decades.
Not working so well, is it.

Just one more field of opportunity opened up to the new gay culture. And in a few years the boy scouts of American will be sued out of existence by abused young men. The BSA doesn´t have nearly as much money as the Catholic Church.

If you announce you are gay you are announcing that you enjoy using other men´s digestive systems for sexual thrills. This has no place what so ever in the Boy Scouts.

Look at me, says Bronco Bama. I grew up under the influence of some distinctly homosexual individuals, and it has affected my mature judgment not at all.

Of course the Current Occupant would be tolerant of openly gay mentors of youth. The Brotherhood is powerful indeed.

#3 - "If everybody follows the rules..."

If everybody followed rules we wouldn´t need police, jails, prisons, or a military. If everybody followed the rules, we could go without clothes.

But everybody doesn´t "follow the rules," and is there a "rule" regarding homosexual conduct?

There is, in the Bible. Homosexuality is wrong. But our Hussein Obama says it is just fine.

Keep homosexuals OUT of the BSA!

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature´s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

For the liberal trolls, this is almost the first two complete paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence.

Enjoy!

As I recall the Scout Oath:
"physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight".

Why am I not surprised that the betrayer of his oath of office would also force the betrayal of their oath by all Boy Scouts, both past and present?

Amid the deterioration of our society into the cesspool, it saddens me that so many on our side have given up in the war on words. Anyone still using the term "gay" is enabling the subculture of sodomy that has seemingly taken over the MSM both in reportage and actual infiltration. A male who inserts his junk into another male´s trunk is a sodomite-period. The proliferation of this sludge into what´s left of our society can only be stopped when the real MEN still out here take a stand and refuse to call this filth anything other than it´s proper name. I am weary of cowards in sports or other professions who say what they obviously feel one day and issue false apologies the day after. We are allowing a tiny fraction of the population [their outsized presence in the media and Hollywood give a false sense of large numbers] to dictate how we speak and undermine our most beloved institutions. Wake up! There is no "gay".

I´m a big believer in the Bible and I always felt that when people talked about the coming again of Jesus that it was something to come way in the future and what was happening today was bad but was somewhat minor...Not anymore...I´ve gone back to the Book and feel devastated that the ´end is coming´ really IS...I just never thought it would happen in my lifetime but I WAS WRONG...it´s unfolding right before my eyes and I´m trying to decide to accept it peacefully or strike back at all the ´evil´ doers that are helping so hard to bring it about. Look at it, bankrupt the country with all that he learned from his ´Cloward-Piven´ theory professors, corrupting religion with ´freedoms´ that insult, mock and defy Our Lord Jesus. Accept anything as ´OK´ and lie freely and frequently to anyone at anytime...Spit on your allies and support our enemies...Ignore truths and reward cowardice, incompetence and being an out and out traitor... Does any of this look familiar to whats going on??? Brother, our clock is ticking at high speed!

I think Boy Scouts should be open to gay members... nothing wrong with happy scouts. Homosexuals, on the other hand, have no place in a young men´s organization while many are still developing their sense of male sexuality only to be abused by perverted homosexual pedophiles.

Lucianne, please excuse a second post.

I concur with #41. Let´s cease using the term "gay" and begin using homosexual, pederast, or sodomite to describe the perversion.

And I agree with #46. World conditions which will prompt His Second Coming are increasingly evident.

Come Lord Jesus.

Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the military so that it can perform its mission better?

Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the Boy Scouts so that it can perform its mission better?

If that is not the case, if some agenda other than improving and advancing these organizations is the object [evidently the case?], why should these organizations put whatever that agenda may be ahead of their organizations?

I pity Obama when he stands before His Maker and is held accountable for all his actions.

Daily he sets himself up for condemnation, to hear Father God say - Depart from Me, I never knew you!

Also, what doth it profit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul.

We are living in an age of apostasy. Seems no one fears God anymore.

The only sin seems to be "getting caught"!

God, forgive US for our disregard for Your will/way.

Sodom and Gomorrah could have been saved with only 10 believers. I wonder how many are here today!


What will it take, America?

Obama is in the process of leading US to hell, not heaven!

Boy Scouts range in age from 11 to 17 years of age, chances are a kid between those ages would have little or no knowledge of the gay lifestyle, if the liberal entertainment industries were not making such a big issue of it to them. If heterosexual people were giving all those kids heterosexual sexual ideas they would be arrested for child sexual abuse.

Liberalism is the culture cancer that destroys everything it touches. Liberals seek out anything decent, traditional and good and inject its heresy and degradation little by little, bit by bit, then moves on to the next victim.

Think pedophilia is forever out of bounds? Think again. Liberals have begun their attempts to indoctrinate the ignorant and gullible. They are using the tried and true method so sucessful with homosexuality; desensitize through entertainment, demonize those not in agreement, gradually bring down age of accountability, attach it to "rights", claim it is inborn DNA and sexual attraction to the young is normal for some, and psychiatrist claiming the children suffer no real harm from sex with adults ( this is already in the "science".).

Little by little, bit by bit. Satan´s political party will sanction it all for more power and control. There is nothing the Democrats will not support given a great enough political constituency.

I don´t believe anyone or any group has denied them the privilege of starting "Gay Scouts of America." Those individuals or families that like the idea can become leaders or become troop members. Then they are free to do their thing. But I just bet lawsuits would soon be plentiful. That´s a risk for any organization, especially where youth are involved. Would they be brave enough. is it important enough to go independent of the Boy Scouts? I think not, as the radical ´pushers´ of moral decline, aimed at traditional American families, operate better as parasites on the healthy host...
If they REALLY believe in this lifestyle.. go for it, independently.. willing to learn from the results of their standards, their efforts within their own organization. Put it to a test..

IRS Among agencies that hired
license plate-tracking vendor
Bloomberg News, by Kathleen Miller    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/19/2014 7:40:54 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

Ted Cruz Writes Thank You
Letter to Obama in POLITICO

This week’s POLITICO Magazine contains an uncharacteristic show of gratitude from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to President Barack Obama. Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece. By giving the president “the authority to deny visas to United Nations ambassadors who are known terrorists,” he

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Reports are flying across the Internet about the possibility that Apple’s satellite map app just snapped a pic of the elusive “Loch Ness monster.” Long speculated to be a relative of the dinosaur-era plesiosaur, many have chalked the rumors up to baseless monster talk. Until now. (Photograph) Could this satellite imagery hold a clue that scientists on the hunt have been missing? Could the Loch Ness monster be real?

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
