What About Those Gay Scout Masters?

Published by at 4:25 pm under All General Discussions

When my son was in the Boy Scouts the organization was fighting back against openly gay scout masters (not gays) and the firestorm from the left about allowing gay men to camp out with these young boys. But now it seems the liberal media has become very concerned about gay men leading camp outs:

Federal prosecutors in Arizona have opened a preliminary investigation of a camping trip Congressman Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., took 10 years ago that included two teenage congressional pages, a Justice Department spokesman told NBC News. NBC News first reported on the camping and rafting trip on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the Justice Department in Washington said that the U.S. attorney in Arizona has started a “preliminary assessment” of the trip, after an unidentified source made allegations about the congressman’s behavior on the expedition.

I guess if Kolbe had been a Boy Scout Master it would have been all OK.

    And the unidentified source most likely is Rogers or Aravosis. Splendid. Unverified Accusations, the New Democratic Oath.

    We are letting the left ‘define’ the issues. The MSM is on a full blown offensive which is obviously not going to allow us to get the ear of Joe Public. AJ you are doing a great job of giving us the facts on all the hyprocrisy on democratic corruption. My question is when will the Republican leadership wake up and hit back? It’s third and 28 and it seems all the receivers are out with twisted ankles. Keep hitting em back AJ, maybe the guys holding the offices will pay attention. I am e-mailing every media outlet and elected official I can find. GET OUT THE VOTE. EVERYWHERE.

    Darlings, I’m 61, male, straight (as defined by ???? anyone you choose) , with certified experience from age 8 or so to 19 or so in the BSA. We had gay scout masters, gay members and the innocence of youth. It didn’t effect, affect , or make any impression on anyone that I knew of. The whole Damned issue is BS.

    Just curious: do the Girl Scouts allow men scout leaders to go on overnight camp outs with the girls? Sleep in the same tent, etc.?

    An unidentified source makes allegations, years later, about the behavior of a gay Congressman and an investigation follows. CREW was calling for an investigation of a gay Congressman over “questionable” emails. The press is pointing toward outing lists that are circulating. But let’s not call this a witch hunt….

    As a matter of fact Dubious – Men over 18 years old are allowed on overnight girl scout camps and are paired with a female co-leader. Many girl scout camps are in 1,2 and 3 room buildings, sleeping accomodations are mattresses on floors – and yes, men are included.

    Now, what is your problem with men going on overnight camps with men? You need some girls on board to make sure Johnny doesn’t touch Jimmy? Or are you just pushing the lefty meme du jour? And just curious – I guess it’s OK for closet lesbians to sleep overnight on girl scout camps in the same building huh?

    I thought this was exactly what the leftwing ethics squad and ACLU
    moral authority have been pushing for years anyway –

    Gays Allowed Everywhere We Want Them To Be, But Not Allowed If It’s Election Time.

    Flip and Flop go the weasels.

    It sure sounds like it affected you, Dorf. The BSA is a private christian organization — excluding gay scout masters is not BS.

  8. Screwed by a RINO? Join the club! …

    Forget about what he did with congressional pages 10 years ago. If getting screwed by Jim Kolbe is a federal crime, the FBI needs to look into how Kolbe sodomized America with his open-borders immigration stance — he supports “guest workers” and amn…
