A good gay = pedophile lie NEVER dies

With news from coming in that the Boy Scouts may rethink its policy of keeping gays out, it didn't take long for the religious right to start pulling the pedophile card.

Allow me to decode what they are saying via Right Wing Watch:

Bryan Fischer from the American Family Association:




Tony Perkins from the Family Research Council:

"The Boy Scouts of America board would be making a serious mistake to bow to the strong-arm tactics of LGBT activists and open the organization to homosexuality. What has changed in terms of the Boy Scouts' concern for the well-being of the boys under their care? Or is this not about the well-being of the Scouts, but the funding for the organization?

"The Boy Scouts has for decades been a force for moral integrity and leadership in the United States. Sadly, their principled stances have marked them as a target for harassment by homosexual activists and corporations such as UPS which are working to pressure the Boy Scouts into abandoning their historic values.

"The mission of the Boy Scouts is 'to instill values in young people' and 'prepare them to make ethical choices,' and the Scout's oath includes a pledge 'to do my duty to God' and keep himself 'morally straight.' It is entirely reasonable and not at all unusual for those passages to be interpreted as requiring abstinence from homosexual conduct.

In other words:






 Lies unchallenged never change and they never die. Don't be fooled by the mock concern of Perkins and Fischer. I would bet my paycheck that when they heard of what the Boy Scouts were considered , they rubbed their hands thinking about the fundraising they are going to do off of it.

And trust me, they will fundraise. Why let a good gay = pedophile lie go to waste?

"...harassment by homosexual activists and corporations such as UPS..."
Bigots are silly.

They'd be adorable if they weren't so objectively evil and in possession of power.

He's right: "It is entirely reasonable and not at all unusual for those passages to be interpreted as requiring abstinence from homosexual conduct." It would also not be unreasonable for a Baptist-led troop to teach boys that imbibing alcohol is a sin, or for a Hindu supported troop to expect members to abstain from meat. Such morality choices have historically been left to the individual troops. But, what Mr. Perkins doesn't mean he wants troops to have the option. He means he wants them all to be forced to to follow his morality on this issue.

Last time I checked, Jerry Sandusky was a heterosexual man, married to a woman, just like Tony and Bryan.
