Support the Boy Scouts of America and their ban on gays

The Boy Scouts of America is again under siege from homosexual rights activists who are demanding the organization amend its policies to include homosexual members and leaders.
For Grassfire old-timers, coming to the defense of the Boy Scouts was our very first issue way back in 2000. Back then, homosexual activists unleashed a blistering assault on the Scouts after the Supreme Court affirmed the BSA’s right to set their own leadership criteria.
In the decade since, the BSA has become a favorite whipping boy of homosexual activists who are unrelenting in their efforts to force the Scouts to allow gay members and gay leadership.
Up to this point, the Scouts have held firm …

However, when a 20 year-old eagle scout named Zach Wahl admonished BSA policies in his recently published book “My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family,” about his two lesbian moms, and then delivered 275,000 petitions demanding the BSA change it’s anti-gay policies, after a lesbian den mother was dismissed from a Scout troop in Ohio the liberal media got involved and super-charged the issue for all of America.

Now with pressure mounting it seems the Scouts have agreed to “carefully review” their ban on gays. Scout spokesman Deron Smith told Fox News, the policy would be “referred to a sub-committee” with the review process expected to be completed by May 2013.

+ + Are Homosexual Activists speaking for you, verne?

Right now in America, homosexual activists are aggressively targeting the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in an effort to radically redefine marriage in our nation.

They have the support of the President who has instructed the Department of Justice not to defend DOMA cases – something the DOJ is constitutionally bound to do – enforce existing laws; despite the fact that the majority of Americans support DOMA and the definition of marriage as being the union of one man and one woman it doesn’t matter …

The same can be said of the Scouts. The law has ruled they have the right and freedom to set their own policies and standards. But it doesn’t matter to the radical few who are out to silence the masses in an effort to radicalize our culture.

While writing this alert, we found a non-scientific poll by MSNBC asking citizens how they felt about this latest attack on the Scouts. By a margin of 57 percent to 43 percent, Americans support the Scouts.

verne, more than 50,000 had completed this poll. But like DOMA, your voice doesn’t matter if you don’t support a radical gay agenda.

You are the enemy to be silenced, and if we allow that to happen, the radical few will have their way with our culture!

+ + 275,000 Petitions Needed for Immediate Delivery to the BSA

We believe it is important for grassroots Americans to show support for the Scouts. That’s why Grassfire launched a national petition – giving citizens an opportunity to answer back to speak up to the radical few trying to change our culture.

But it’s not good enough to just respond with a lackluster petition effort. That’s why we’re calling for a massive response equaling or even surpassing the alleged 275,000 delivered to the Scouts by homosexual activist Zach Wahl.

Go here now to support the Scouts and this latest attack on their right to set their own policies:
