Boy Scouts Waste No Time Marching In Pride Parade

Just over a week had passed since a controversial Boy Scouts of America decision permitted openly gay members, and some scouts were ready to make their sexual proclivity abundantly obvious.

A number of scouts in and around Salt Lake City marched – in clear violation of BSA rules – in a recent gay pride parade while wearing their uniforms.

“We do not, as Boy Scouts, show support for any social or political position,” said local chief scout executive Rick Barnes, explaining why the participants were warned not to take part in the event.

Scoutmaster Peter Brownstein, who reportedly helped solicit support for the scouts’ participation in the march, said the activism was “about getting the message out to America.”

That message, apparently, includes his opinion that Boy Scouts are no longer bound by their honor code.

National BSA spokesman Deron Smith disagreed, saying that to “simply disobey a rule because you disagree with it is not an example to set for youth.” He said that any potential disciplinary action will be handled on the local level.

Still, one can scarcely blame this generation for believing that rules do not apply to them. Our culture tacitly teaches that certain groups – including the gay community – are always right. Any disagreement involving these protected groups is chalked up to intolerance on the part of the other party.

As with affirmative action before it, artificially rewarding certain groups based on arbitrary criteria not only stifles the liberty of everyone else – it patronizes and insults those purportedly helped.

    The Obama administration has successfully destroyed yet another bastion of American values. The young learn by example. Obama and his Attorney General pick and choose what laws of the land they will obey and now so do the Boy Scouts.

  2. It makes no difference to me any more what they do. It's just another obabma NAMBLA obamination and I simply will no longer support them. Nothing, nil, no support, and if I'm approached for support, I'll be glad to tell them I no longer support their "unnatural" choice of life styles.

  3. ARE YOU SURPRISED????

    Reminiscent of a group of gay military people in uniform marching in a Gay Pride parade in California soon after Obama forced the military to end its "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy but while that policy was still in effect — thus violating existing policy. Nothing happened to them either, of course.

    I can't believe any parent would let their son march in a fudge packerd parade.I know my son would be out of scouting the the BSA decided to let pillow biters in.

    They get no support from me anymore. It is a shame that they are teaching children perversion.
