“Insider” pro-homosexual CEOs Stephenson and Turley must step down
TAKE ACTION: thank the Boy Scouts for not rushing into a reckless, politically correct decision to rescind their wholesome policy against homosexual immorality. But let them know that nothing short of a clear reaffirmation of their longstanding policy against openly homosexual Scoutmasters and Scouts will restore the good reputation of the BSA. E-mail the Scouts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Folks, today we received word that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has delayed until May a decision on whether to make the radical change of allowing openly homosexual Scoutmasters and Scouts. The announced delay came after the BSA came under an avalanche of criticism for revealing to the media that the venerable boys organization would likely end its longstanding homosexual exclusion policy — under pressure from “gay” activists and pro-homosexual corporations.
While we at AFTAH welcome this delay, it would have been better if the BSA had simply announced that it was abandoning the misguided idea of opening itself up to homosexuality. But at least we know that the Scouts have gotten the message from the grassroots that allowing homosexuality in the BSA would be disastrous to the organization.
We urge citizens to continue urging the BSA to completely repudiate any policy shift on homosexuality. If the Scouts are to retain the trust of parents nationwide, they must unequivocally reaffirm the current, common-sense policy against homosexuality — which has no place in a wholesome boys organization that professes to teach boys to be “morally straight” and revere God.
Americans For Truth About Homosexuality has very busy defending the idea of keeping the Boy Scouts of America “morally straight.” In the last week, I have done national interviews on the Scouts’ potential capitulation on WVCY America and the Janet Mefferd Show — as well as a half dozen other radio shows. On the WVCY program [listen HERE], a man called in and told how, as a boy, he was molested by his Scoutmaster and “used” sexually again and again. This man was resolutely against changing the Scouts’ existing policy against homosexuality. What a heartbreaking testimony, but what a powerful example of what is at stake in this critical cultural battle.
Internal “gay” advocates must step down
Americans For Truth reiterates its call for the two corporate CEOs who reportedly are the strongest advocates for the pro-“gay” policy change — AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson and Ernst & Young CEO Jim Turley — to resign from the BSA’s Executive Board immediately. Regrettably, these two advocates of homosexuality have undermined the organization they are supposed to be serving. Through their ongoing pro-LGBT advocacy, they have instigated a massive and unnecessary public controversy that has already damaged the reputation of the Scouts.
“Out and proud” homosexuality may be the current rage in the corporate world, but it is not a Scouting value.
