A Message to Boy Scouts of America: Don't Give in on the Homosexual Issue!
I am a 26 year old young woman, a college graduate, a Christian, a freelance writer and editor, and a sister to two Eagle Scout brothers and daughter to an Eagle scout father. I am honored to have helped and prayed and watched my brothers work towards this goal. The award of Eagle Scout is a both great honor and a great achievement.
Now that I hear that the Boy Scouts are about to cave to the homosexuals, I am devastated. I, as well as my family, as well as my church, as well as my brothers' scout troop here in Colorado, as well as all of my acquaintance, are devastated. What happened to the "morally straight" part of the Boy Scout oath that I heard my brothers reciting so many years? What happened to honoring God and the principles that made America great? What happened to encouraging boys to be masculine, courageous, heroic, and servant-leaders of their family and country?
Now is the time to engage. Before the Boy Scouts make their final decision, it is absolutely vital that they hear from you. Contact Wayne Brock, Chief Boy Scouts Executive, at 972-580-2004,972-580-2000, or by email at Wayne.Brock@Scouting.org. Tell him that you would rather see his organization die standing on character than risk the safety of millions of boys to appease radicals and score political points.
If you take this devastating step for your organization, you will be trashing the morality of our country. Boy Scouts will be a hypocritical, anti-boy, anti-God, anti-moral organization. As far as me and my family are concerned, Boy Scouts will be toast, and Boy Scouts will crumble as an organization. The name Eagle Scout will no longer be an honor in my family.
I don't know if the Bible means anything to you, or if interpreting the Bible means anything to you, but I pray you will consider the clarity of these verses, and understand that if you violate God's law in this area, your organization will not prosper. Homosexuality is called a "perversion" by God, and is the sin that most defiles a land.
"If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable." (Leviticus 20:13a).
"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." (Leviticus 18:22).
"For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due." (Romans 1:26-27).
Wayne, I believe you know what is right. I believe you have always known this, and have always strongly held your integrity in this matter. I pray you will continue to do so. Be strong and courageous. Uphold the commandments of the Lord God, and He will fight for you. I sincerely believe that God will curse the Boy Scouts of America if it sides with the homosexuals, and that God will bless the BSA if it sides with the principles of the Bible: the principles that made our country great.
Please, Wayne. Don't give in.
