Linda Harvey of Mission America is clearly devastated by the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to allow openly gay youth and in a radio commentary said that the “truly heartbreaking” vote was “a slam on authentic boyhood and manhood” that will have “our children corrupted as a result.”
The Boy Scouts of America embraced open homosexual attraction for boys. Boys can now identify as gay and announce that to the whole troop, and this is OK. The vote was 61 percent in favor. It’s truly heartbreaking to watch the morals of a revered institution disintegrate in this way, and our children corrupted as a result. America, how did we get here? The statement coming out of the Boy Scout organization said that even though they knew this would be controversial, “We can all agree that kids are better off in scouting.” Well, not true. This statement is just as naive and foolish as the proposal itself. No, we can’t all agree that boys are better in scouting, not now. Knowledgeable parents will move their boys at the earliest possible time to a much better organization. Why? Because many, if not most, troops will quickly become homosexually affirming climates either in theory or in real-time practice. This is a vote of weakness and a slam on authentic boyhood and manhood.
Folks, whatever the motivation for this move, it’s insane. Troops are not supposed to be social experiments or, possibly, therapy centers for troubled boys who may be leaning toward homosexuality. As we’ve said here before, kids who have same-sex attractions can change and often do by adulthood. But it is not healthy or right to involve other children with these very personal struggles as confused boys are figuring all this out, or maybe not figuring it out.
Writing in WorldNetDaily, Harvey accused gay rights activists of supporting child abuse and using “tactics that increasingly resemble childish middle-school bullies morphing into terrorists.”
Condom training, cross-dressing troop members and lessons on “homophobia”: Welcome to the new, improved Boy Scouts of America.
Well, “gay activism” happened, and the pressure was apparently too much. It just goes to show you how much influence this lobby has, with tactics that increasingly resemble childish middle-school bullies morphing into terrorists. And Boy Scout parents and leaders who actually believe the pink mafia will stop here are beyond naïve.
As time rolls on, there will be incidents of abuse. Will the Boy Scout organization report these? Let’s not kid ourselves. They just showed how compromised/intimidated/clueless they are. Expect cover-up upon cover-up in the future, eventually resembling the Catholic Church scandal.
The climate of assent will erode each boy’s code of ethics, either quickly or slowly, but it will happen. It will erode the Christian boy’s reliance on Scripture, his relationship with the real, living Almighty God and our Savior Jesus Christ. If he begins to doubt that God actually is our Creator, the One who decided long ago what is good and what is evil, and did condemn homosexual behavior as a sin, and if he is lulled into failing to use the brain God gave him to observe that two men together is observably wrong, this is a boy who is being enabled in truth denial. He is then vulnerable to all kinds of other corruption and, without an anchor, is really no different than any un-Scouted kid in our rudderless society.
This "Man In The Moon" event is actually just the centerpiece of a three day event that Beck is organizing for the intended purpose of etching his agenda "on the hearts and souls of our children."
"Everything that I am doing," Beck explained today on his radio program, "I am working to be able to engrave these things on to your child's heart so they never forget."
In fact, the entire event is scheduled for three days because apparently that is the amount of time that has been scientifically determined as necessary to permanently indoctrinate someone ... and if Beck is successful "your children will never forget the moment the moon spoke, they will never forget and if we've done our job right, you and your children will never look up into the sky and see the moon the same way ever again":
Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality appeared on VCY America’s Crosstalk yesterday to discuss the recent decision by the Boy Scouts to include openly gay members under the age of 18 and the upcoming vote on marriage equality legislation in the Illinois State House. Understandably, LaBarbera was quite despondent and even resigned to increasing gay rights victories, warning that “God is giving us over to our sin.”
LaBarbera: I’ll tell you, I fear for our country, I believe God is giving us over to our sin. It seems that way to me, I don’t have a red phone to the Lord but it just seems that America is on such a precipitous decline, you know God seems to be saying: ‘You want homosexuality? You want abortion? Here, go ahead and have it.’ We’re a free society. The culture war on this issue alone is frightening, how much more resources and money the pro-sin side—which would be the homosexual side, that’s a sin—how much more resources they bring than to the side of righteousness and in a free society the people who bring the most organization, resources, money and people win and that’s what’s happening.
During the program, host Jim Schneider read Michael Swift’s obviously satirical “Gay Manifesto,” the 1987 essay which facetiously talks about gay “private armies” that will “conquer the world” and defeat the “hetero swine,” as if it was a serious political treatise, lamenting that “we are seeing item by item virtually everything that he has laid out here to be fulfilled today.”
LaBarbera called Swift’s piece “demonic” and “shockingly evil,” while even he admitted that it “may have been a satirical essay.”
Schneider later claimed that “same-sex assaults that are taking place in the military are just drastically on the increase” since the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy was lifted.” As we have already pointed out, however, CNN has reported that the current sexual assault rate among active duty men has “remained unchanged” from 2010, the year before Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was repealed.
Schneider: That was a quarter century ago, I recall when we first read this back many years ago that people hooted and hollered, they said oh that’s just one wacky individual, but we are seeing item by item virtually everything that he has laid out here to be fulfilled today.
LaBarbera: It’s shocking. It’s shockingly evil, just the demonic price that essay is just stunning. Absolutely. This may have been a satirical essay but it’s shocking, it’s amazing how so much of that came true. I think about the characters on TV, how many people these days tell you every time you turn on the TV set there’s a favorable depiction of an openly homosexual character, it’s like the good guys are the homosexuals and the bad guys are heterosexuals. We see this again and again. Basically, homosexual power has grown exponentially in our culture and a lot of the things that essay talked about are actually happening.
Schneider: Here he talked about the army bunkhouses and just a week ago we saw about the increase in the sexual assaults occurring in the military, especially since the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy was lifted and same-sex assaults that are taking place in the military are just drastically on the increase. Certainly line by line the family unit, they say, is going to be annihilated.
On today's radio program, Bryan Fischer reacted to new research finding that women are either the sole or primary source of income in 40% of homes ... and his reaction was exactly what you'd expect from sexist, borderline theocrat as he cited the Bible to assert that women were designed to be ruled over by their husbands and "to focus her energies ... on making a home for her children and for her husband."
Fischer was especially alarmed by the prospect that working women might earn more than their husbands because it is an unhealthy dynamic because it undermines "his sense of worth as a male":
On his radio program today, Glenn Beck reacted to the announcement that Rep. Michele Bachmann would not be seeking re-election by saying that while he finds is tragic, it is also understandable that she grown tired of the incessant attacks that have "destroyed her image, destroyed her honor, [and] destroyed her business."
Leaving Congress, Beck insisted, was good for Bachmann because Washington, DC is "Chernobyl" and so she is getting out with her honor and integrity in tact:
After warning that “the Boy Scouts are up for grabs…in many different ways,” Liberty University’s Judith Reisman took to WorldNetDaily today to write that the leadership of the Boy Scouts of America has “stamped a ‘bull’s eye’ on the Boy Scouts as pederast targets” by voting to end the ban on gay youth.
She argues that gay Boy Scouts will “train” and sexually assault other scouts and then trick them to “believe they are naturally ‘that way.’”
“Now, bigger and/or more manipulative lads, with cell phones and other pornography resources stirring their sinews, will greedily entrap any and all boys who seem easy prey,” Reisman claims, “Eroticize the campsite and you eroticize boys to one another and to their leaders.”
The recent Boy Scout betrayal is a glaring example of the growing impotence of masc
uline virtue and honor. And please, don’t take refuge by blaming “the feminist movement.” Really!
Oh, but such boy predators won’t singly or gang victimize Scouts! Perish the thought! On May 23, a real Man, Chuck Peters, of Voice of the Voiceless (“the only anti-defamation league for former homosexuals, individuals with unwanted same-sex attractions, and their families”), having been a young sexually violated Scout himself, charged:
“New Boy Scout Policy May Lead To Increased Pedophilia.”
Indeed, Mr. Peters, indeed.
Assuming the votes were trustworthy, 854 adults, that is, 61 percent of roughly 1,400 BSA’s National Council voting members, “who cast ballots,” have opened their boys to youths branded as “openly gay-identified Boy Scouts.”
Adults are meant to know better.
Youths commonly heed adult ideas and mark themselves accordingly (I’m stupid, clumsy, ugly, or even brilliant or wise!). However, adults are meant to help vulnerable youths grow, learn and become who they are meant to be – years hence.
Instead, 854 adults stamped a “bull’s eye” on the Boy Scouts as pederast targets.
Now, bigger and/or more manipulative lads, with cell phones and other pornography resources stirring their sinews, will greedily entrap any and all boys who seem easy prey.
“Boy Scout” is defined in Gay Speak, the homophile lexicon:
“Boy-scout queen: (sexually experimenting boy scouts who fear giving a response); one who pretends to snooze as he is f–-ed or s–-ed off, ‘sugar loaf,’ ‘sugar babe,’ etc., bees to the honey!”
I sanitized the text for you.
What cowards to pretend ignorance of the massive history of Boy Scout molestations!
Eroticize the campsite and you eroticize boys to one another and to their leaders. “Gay Scoutmasters” will arrive soon to “help” “their” lads, to train and encourage them – to believe they are naturally “that way.”
The “I just knew I was different since I was 5 years old” mantra.
Eagle Forum’s Phyllis Schlafly is riled up about comprehensive immigration reform, and she has hardly been hiding the reason why. Last month, Schlafly predicted that comprehensive reform would be “suicide for the Republican Party” because immigrants “come from a country” where they expect “a handout” from the government. Last week, she lamented that today’s immigrants are less patriotic than the “Irish, Italian, Jewish, etc.” immigrants of “earlier generations.” Then, she claimed that Mitt Romney lost the presidential election not because of eroding support for the GOP among people of color, but because “his drop-off from white voters was tremendous” – which is just blatantly false.
But in an interview this week with conservative radio program Focus Today, Schlafly just came right out and said it. Calling the GOP’s need to reach out to Latinos a “great myth,” Schlafly said that “the people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes, the white voters who didn’t vote in the last election.” Schlafly accused the Republican “establishment” of nominating “a series of losers…who don’t connect with the grassroots.”
“The propagandists are leading us down the wrong path,” she said. “There’s not any evidence at all that these Hispanics coming in from Mexico will vote Republican.”
Although she doesn’t say it in so many words, Schlafly is basically repeating Pat Buchanan’s call for the GOP to revive the Southern Strategy, stirring up racial resentment among white voters against Latino immigrants in order to boost turnout.
Starnes' entire career appears to be built around presenting one-sided culture war stories designed to fire up the conservative base, so it was hilarious to hear him declare that he prides himself on his accuracy, assuring his audience that when they read his stories, they are "getting the most accurate information possible":
You mean like the time he reported that a high school runner was disqualified for thanking God, which turned out to be totally false?
Or his report that the military was blocking the Southern Baptist Convention's website as an act of hostility toward Christianity, which was likewise entirely wrong?
What about the time he claimed that "roving gangs of thugs" had taken over New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy or when he falsely claimed that the Obama administration had not called for the release of Rev. Saeed Abedini from Iran?
Or how about his false report that two female middle school students were forced to ask one another for a kiss during an anti-bullying presentation?
And who can forget his article alleging that the military was going to court-martial soldiers for sharing their faith, which was entirely untrue?
Is that what Starnes meant when he said "you can read my stories and you can be assured that I am sharing with you accurate information"?
