Open Letter To The Boy Scouts of America 2013

Below is the eMail I received shortly after the BSA voted to abandon it’s devout Christian membership in favor of LGBT youth and funding.

BSA begs for support

My response follows this letter from the BSA asking me to renew my support for the Scouting program.

To whom it may concern,

Due to the recent emphasis by the Boy Scouts of America placed on child sexuality and alternative forms of it, I have pledged to no longer support the Boy Scouts of America. I’m disheartened by the fact that accommodating and promoting deviant childhood sexual expression was valued over accommodating and promoting religious values and basic portions of the long-standing Oath and Law. In other words, you chose homosexuals over religious adherents who oppose and desire to  protect their children from that behavior. You had to know that you would be trading out one demography for another. Our values are incompatible with the promotion and express endorsement of such gross immorality.

Homosexuality and other forms of “alternative” sexuality should not be tolerated or promoted within the BSA. The Boy Scouts of America is no longer the stellar organization that it once was, and no longer represents the family virtues that sustain American vitality, culture, and greatness. As a result, you no longer have my support.

I wish the Boy Scouts of America success in back-stepping out of this policy change, and look forward to the time when my values and concern for the safety of my son are held in higher esteem than this risk and immorality falsely advertised as “inclusiveness”.

Sincerely,

Former Arrow of Light Recipient, former Order of The Arrow member, former Eagle Scout, former Cub Master, and former Boy Scout Leader,

Many methods of delivery for this lesson have been tried on us from our youth until the present time. Some of these methods have proven more effective than others.

The BSA’s Children’s Bill of Rights states the following: Continue reading
