We hear terrible things about Socialism.
The UK is very socialist in it’s culture and yet we find this little gem.
The Boy Scouts of America went to the U.S. Supreme Court to keep gays out of their ranks. But in Britain, it’s a different story: The U.K. version of the Scouts is reaching out to the gay community to get more gays into their uniforms, reported British newspaper the Daily Mail on June 6.
Perhaps because of the policy of the Boy Scouts in the United States, there’s a misunderstanding among some in Britain that gays are barred from joining up or volunteering for the British Scouts. That’s not so, and the Scout Association — the British version of the popular youth group — is taking steps to dispel the misapprehension by creating a promotional video and stepping up recruitment efforts aimed at the gay demographic.
“There was an assumption that being gay meant you couldn’t be part of the movement,” Scouting Association spokesperson Simon Carter told the British press.
“That was never the case and we are keen to make it clear that we accept people of any particular orientation,” Carter continued. “We have had youth members and adults attend Pride events and plan to do so again this year. It shows that we are not just taking about it but are demonstrating our support publicly.”
What a horrible thing that this socialist leaning nation (the UK) is doing.
How dare the Scout organization in the UK treat their children with respect and inclusion.
How dare they allow all kinds of kids join their (clearly hedonistic and Satanic) Boy Scout organization.
How terrible that they are fighting to overcome the (clearly Godly and correct) perception coming from the United States that gay children aren’t worthy of respect and should be excluded from the Boy Scouts.
Why it is I continue to think that the wrong group of people left England all those years ago.
The U.S. leads the world in so many ways and yet we continue to be bound by out-dated social mores based in bigotry and fear. And we force ostracism on kids because we refuse to deal with our own paranoia and hatred.
