Prediction for Boy Scouts: Quietly Opening Door for Homosexual Leaders
A pro-family leader is asking whether the Boy Scouts will enforce a policy against homosexual leaders.
A new policy went into effect January 1, allowing open homosexuals as members of the Boy Scouts, but not adults.
Last week, the New York Chapter of the Boy Scouts hired an openly homosexual 18-year-old Eagle Scout to work as a camp counselor this summer.
Matt Barber, an attorney and founder of Barbwire.com, predicts the BSA policy in homosexual adults will change too.
"They are employing an incrementalist strategy here - death by a thousand cuts," Barber says of the Scouts.
[H]e predicts [that] the BSA leaders will slowly allow open homosexuals to take leadership roles within the Boy Scouts, "and take boys on camping trips [...] [T]his will place boys at a risk rate of 10 times the previous rate for being sexually assaulted on these camping trips," Barber warns.
Barber says there is an alternative, Trail Life USA, which is a faith-based organization that began after the Boy Scouts accepted gay scouts.
