The Boy Scouts of America reaffirmed their longstanding policy of excluding gay kids from their ranks recently and the Family Research Council is, of course, praising them for it. In an email sent to their followers, the FRC said this:
Why is the homosexual movement targeting the Boy Scouts?
Here’s the reason:
Because the Boy Scout Oath talks about honor, duty to God, and moral uprightness, which necessarily excludes sinful lifestyles.
Really? Would you care to make a bet on what percentage of the teenagers in the Boy Scouts masturbate and fantasize about all kinds of nasty things? It will be very near 100%. And yet that “sinful lifestyle” does nothing to impede their ability to complete the program, earn badges and reach the highest levels of achievement in the organization. They might as well give out merit badges for bigotry, which is not a moral value.
