02-06-13 update: In a statement issued today, the Boy Scouts decided to postone their final policy decision until May. So keep the pressure on. It's working.
02-01-13: The anti-family movement is pressuring the Boy Scouts to surrender. To give up their honor. To accept unnatural behavior -- sin -- and abandon their morally sound membership policy which bars open homosexuals from holding leadership positions.
According to a recent statement by Deron Smith, director of Boy Scouts public relations, “... the BSA is discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation. This would mean there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation..."
The proposed policy shift would place the moral welfare of 2.7 million boys involved in the institution at risk.
Top leaders of the Boy Scouts will meet on Wednesday to make a final decision -- to surrender on principles or stand strong.
With all urgency, please sign your online petition here. Urge the Scouts to stand strong.
Please consider taking these additional actions:
1. Write a Facebook post
Tell the Boy Scouts to stand strong by posting a message on their facebook page here. For example: For God and country, do what is right. Boys need moral and virtuous leaders. Stand firm on moral principles. Don't let the homosexual movement bully you.
2. Tweet this message

To the @BoyScouts: Don't give up your honor. Don't change. Keep your moral policy as is. #BoyScouts http://dld.bz/cdhfH @tfpsa
