Good grief. You have to read this crafty, but delusional swill from Diane Gramley, of the Pennsylvania American Family Association. She opens her op-ed in The Bulletin bleating about the injustice dealt to one of the historically black Boy Scout troops that marched in the inaugural parade — by Barack Obama, in her eyes. Break out the tiny violin.
[H]ave the leaders of this troop taken a close look at an issue that will directly affect the very existence of Boy Scouting in America? The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide family group, is questioning whether they realize President Barack Obama supports the very policies that are targeting their headquarters in Philadelphia.
Troop 358 is part of the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council, which has been in a pitched battle with the City of Philadelphia to retain the headquarters they built and have maintained since 1929 on property the 1928 City Council gave the Scouts free use of in perpetuity or forever.
Last May, the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council sued the city to prevent their eviction. That case was given a green light to proceed by a judge last fall,” remarked Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.
Why is the City of Philadelphia seeking to evict the Scouts? It is because of their ban on allowing open homosexual leaders and members.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Scouts have the right, as a private organization, to choose who they want to be leaders and members. Ever since that time they have been targeted by homosexual organizations and activists who are trying to remold the Boy Scouts of America in their image.
And because sexual orientation is in Philly’s Fair Practices Ordinance, the Scouting orgs there have been playing victims since the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council has been hit in the wallet, losing lost hundreds of thousands of dollars of support from Pew Charitable Trust and Southeastern Pennsylvania United Way as well, due to exercising their right to discriminate. They expect no consequences when they are called on it. Look at this apocalyptic statement from Gramley:
Yes, it is a great honor to be part of the inaugural parade, but at what costs? Do these Boy Scout leaders fully realize that President Obama supports a wide range of so-called ‘gay rights’ measures. He has said he will use the Office of President as a bully pulpit to advance their causes.
“Mr. Obama, knowingly or unknowingly, may be a part of the end of the Boy Scouts of America as we know them,” Ms. Gramley further stated.
Freeper reaction is below the fold.
Actual Freeper Quotes
Obomba has stated that transsexuals and other perverts will be included in his inner circle. He has practiced perversion himself with his old, now dead mentor in Hawaii who used to bring the young boys in, give them jars of whiskey and fill them with Marxist propaganda. No Boy Scout was he.
Obammie the commie is in league with all those presidents who broke treaties with the Indians.
Obama insists that the Boy Scouts of America is obligated to set themselves up as hunting grounds for pedophiles. You’re damn right I’m discriminating against homosexuals having that opportunity!
Anyone who cannot see the conflict between young boy scouts and homosexual scout leaders is too dumb to breathe.
He’s a Liberal! He’s either gonna hate the boy scouts or like them WAY too much! nudge nudge… wink wink…
Hussein would prefer something like the “Lil Black Panthers”, or the “Union Thug Chilren”, or the “Young ACORN Nuts”.
Well of course he is. The Boy scouts of America was established to help boys become good Americans in the traditional sense. Obama is a maxrist who is (and will be) against anything that fosters anything like that. He is already demonstrating this in his first weeks in office and it will continue and get worse.
I’m for putting all avowed homosexuals on a reservation. The only problem is where to put up the barbed-wire fencing. What state wants a heavy concentration of perverts? Oh, I know. Californicate.
And Gypsies, Poles and Jews too? Psst – it’s been tried before. Caused all sorts of trouble.
Oh, I get it. Comparing the quarantining of our valuable perverts to Nazi concentration camps.
