Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, just sent an emergency action alert email claiming that “homosexual activists” are “bullying” the Boy Scouts of America into dropping their ban on gays.
“For decades, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have heroically withstood attacks from homosexual activists,” Perkins’ email states:
Now, officials from the organization have indicated that this may be about to change. The BSA says that it is “discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation.”
“Be prepared.” The motto of the venerable organization that has helped develop countless boys into men, preparedness is not only an aspiration, but a descriptor. Thus far they’ve been prepared to withstand the constant bullying by those who work to bring down all that the millions of dedicated Scouts and Scout leaders stand for.
More than 1.2 million people have signed petitions at Change.org demanding the Boy Scouts drop their ban on gay scouts and gay scout leaders. Even Mitt Romaey, a former board member of the BSA, thinks gay people should be admitted to Scouting.
The Family Research Council is a certified anti-gay organization that opposes almost every issue mainstream America supports, including women serving in combat roles in the military.
