Your View: Boy Scouts should uphold ban on homosexuals

By Rita Crowell
Special to The Globe

DIAMOND, Mo. — Why are the homosexuals attacking the Boy Scouts, a private organization for over 100 years with one of the highest organizational moral standards for its over 2.7 million members?

Is it really tolerance, diversity, non-discrimination, inclusion, sexual orientation, etc.? No, absolutely not. Take a good look at who the homosexuals are relentlessly attacking, and you will discover it is Christianity.

If the homosexuals were really interested in an organization like the Boy Scouts, why don’t they start one of their own?

The Christians must rise to the occasion and encourage the Boy Scouts to continue its ban on homosexual membership and homosexual leadership by contacting the following: Wayne Brock, chief Boy Scout executive, 972-580-2004 or 972-580-2000; also www.scouting.org.

Time is of the ultimate for this gravely important decision that will be made in the latter part of May.
