Send this URGENT alert to all your friends.

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

Post the following tweet:
To the @BoyScouts: Don't give up your honor. Don't change. Keep your moral policy as is.  #BoyScouts @tfpsa

There is no place for homosexuals in the Boy Scouts. I had the misfortune of being in a Scout Unit where one of my friends was molested by the Scout Master, who we later learned was homosexual.
Homosexual is what it is. A dysfunctional behavior pattern, that encourages the abuse of young boys and girls.

Please keep the Honor in Boy Scouting and vote NO on letting homosexuals be in leadership positions. Not because of any bias, but because our boys need to protected from a sinful lifestyle.

When you lower your standards you, also, lower your value and your integrity. Stay the course, be strong, be determined. Your moral code is profound & inspirational.

It is better to disband the Boy Scouts than to allow it to be infiltrated by homosexuals.

If you let homosexuals into the Boy Scouts it will fall.

The gay "rights" movement and the Boy Scouts are mutually exclusive. The oath, law, motto and slogan are all based on moral values. The organization should stand strong for their beliefs as do the gay movement. Ask yourself: who is it that is trying to force their belief on another?
