Time to Resign from the Christophobic Boy Scouts of AmericaWritten by Michael J. Matt | Editor
"Last week, the BSA's National Executive Board approved the new policy on a 45-12 vote. This follows a vote just two years ago to allow homosexual boys to join the ranks.
"In a gesture of compromise, the board granted church-sponsored units the option to continue to prohibit gay members. But immediately after the vote, activists were already screaming that the new policy was still too restrictive. They have vowed to continue to apply pressure and possible legal action if church-sponsored troops refuse to allow homosexual leaders.
"Attorney Richard Mathews, who served as legal counsel for the Boy Scouts of America for 11 years and national general counsel for the last three years, has authored a legal memorandum explaining the litigation risk that churches will undertake by continuing to charter BSA units or starting new ones.

REMNANT COMMENT: I mean this is a complete no-brainer--If your kids are still involved with the infiltrated and corrupt Boy Scouts of America then you are part of the problem, not the solution. Get.out.NOW!

What kind of martyrs would we make if we can't even do something as simple as give the old lavender Boy Scouts of America the heave-ho? This organization is now antithetical to everything we Christians believe. Why on earth would we continue to support them and their decision to tell Christian America to go to hell?
Look at the photograph above (yes, those are scouts carrying "gay pride" flags)—if that doesn't prompt you to immediately resign from the Boy Scouts and maybe even burn your family’s old scouting uniforms and post the video on YouTube, I can't imagine what will. The Boy Scouts of America is dead to us now. Time to move on.
