Earth to Boy Scouts: You Can't Cooperate "a Little Bit" with Evil

Well, the Scouts have voted to allow openly "gay" boys into the organization. So they may as well scrap the Boy Scout Oath:
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
 There is nothing "morally straight" about homosexual behavior. Of course, the Scouts could just change the word "straight" to "whatever." That would fit the Zeitgeist and sound pretty cool as well. Hey, whatever moral conduct floats your boat: one more victory for moral perversion!

If the Scouts think they can brush their hands together because the controversy is ended
they are clueless and deluded. Gay activists want male Scout leaders. The agenda is to transform the culture by perverting every institution in the country, particularly those that affect children. The Scouts' collapse is just one more propaganda success in the project to normalize evil. ("Woe to you  that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light and light for darkness." (Is 5:20)

But -- I give the activists credit for their zeal and single-minded purpose. As Scripture says, "The children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light." (Luke 16:8)

Sad isn't it? We who have the Lord are often not nearly as zealous in doing God's work  as those serving the evil one. But that just means we have to do more penance and more praying. Some demons, as Jesus said, are only driven out with much fasting. I'm praying today to be more committed to personal penance. It's certainly not something that comes naturally. But think of all those poor men and women enslaved to the demons of lust. Don't they deserve our compassion and prayers. And their conversion would change the world. Let's pray for it!

I'm with you Mary Ann, I am not letting my boys associate with a bunch of homos. St Paul tells us people like this are destined to hell and there is no room for them in my life or the life of my family. I spoke with our priest and he said that he will discontinue the scout troop at our church--and my weekly offering is going up 20.00 Good for him

Except for the mercy of God we are all destined for hell, sinners as we are. But there is something egregiously wrong when our shepherds try to glue good and evil together -- like giving sacrilegious Communions to pro-abortion politicians.

I am so glad your pastor recognizes what's happening. I think the Scouts will lose many troops. I certainly hope they lose all the troops in Catholic parishes.

To toss this out there, I've read there are a few Protestant denominations who sponsor BSA troops aren't happy with the decision either and could take similar action.

Let's pray they do!

Wait just a minute. The church teaches that people are homosexual but that any sexual act outside of marriage is sinful. How is allowing a chaste, homosexual child to be a boy scout wrong? Most people know from a very young age that they are homosexual, just as you presumably did not make a choice to be heterosexual. It is not right to discriminate against these CHILDREN of God. Shame on you. And shame on agreeing with the first name-calling poster.

Where does the Church teach that "people are homosexual." There is no evidence of homosexual "orientation." It is a convenient claim to legitimize the sinful behavior. The Church calls homosexuality a "disordered inclination" that is oriented toward sinful behavior.

Many adolescents and even pre-adolescents are sexually confused because they are inundated with sex from the time they hit pre-school. My little grandson in pre-school told a little girl in his class who said she was going to marry her little girlfriend, that "Girls can't marry girls." He was corrected by the teacher. The shame to be handed out goes to those indoctrinating babies in the lie.

When I was a child, I never thought about my sexuality. It was a given. I was a girl, my brothers were boys. I didn't need body part visual aids in first grade, I bathed my little brothers and sisters. Eleven and twelve-year-old boys are no more homosexual than I am. They are being molded.

What's happening in the scouts is all about undermining another institution with homosexual propaganda. That was part of the socialist agenda. You can read about it in "The Naked Communist" or watch the documentary, "Agenda: Grinding American Down."

They've been extremely successful -- mainly because of fellow travelers who jump on their politically correct snake-oil caravan. Shame on you for being an enabler helping to pervert our youngsters with a message that is a lie from hell!

My goodness, you are certainly filled with vitriol, Madam. I feel dirty just reading your responses and will no longer visit your blog, where charity and compassion are not to be found.

Spoken like a typical liberal. Don't address the issues, just call a name and stick your head back in the proverbial hole. The truth hurts, but it's only truth that sets people free from the slavery of sin and homosexuals (those who act on same-sex attraction) are more enslaved than most sinners. May God have mercy on them and open their eyes to the truth.

Would you feel this way of any of your children were gay? You think sexuality is a choice? Why would anyone choose to live a life that is discriminated against? Do you think homosexual people would choose that for themselves? I'm sure you woke up one morning and chose to be hetero. I am ashamed to know that you were one of my teachers at St. Louis!

Mary Ann Kreitzer said...

I love my children enough to tell them the truth. Homosexual activity is sinful just like heterosexual activity outside of marriage is sinful. Fornication and adultery are forbidden and so is homosexual sodomy and fellatio or any other kind of sexual acting out.

It is a sad reality that some people have disordered inclinations to same-sex acts through no fault of their own. That is a sad reality, but it does NOT justify acting on those sinful temptations.

Someone who has same sex attraction is called to lead a celibate life. That is what the Church teaches. I know several homosexuals who are committed to that and there is an organization that helps them to be faithful - Courage.

The Boy Scouts never asked boys about their sexual inclinations as a litmus test for joining the scouts. This has become an issue because adult homosexuals are USING children to promote the homosexual lifestyle. They want children, the younger the better, to proclaim themselves to be "gay." Mostly they are preying on the sexual confusion of youngsters.

Before puberty girls like girls and boys like boys. Today children are being indoctrinated to believe that means they may be homosexual. That's why all this stuff is taught in elementary school. They are sexualizing the playpen.

I'm not sure what you mean by "sexuality is not a choice." If you men some of us are born female and some are born male, you are absolutely right. If you mean sexual behavior is not a choice, you are absolutely wrong. No one needs to have sex to live. And there is only one situation where sexual intercourse is licit -- in marriage between a man and a woman. Every married person is called to be celibate except for one person -- his or her spouse. Sexual intercourse is impossible for two people of the same sex. They can only pretend by using body parts not designed for the purpose.

As for being ashamed that I was one of your teachers, I can only apologize for not doing a better job of teaching you the faith.

I agree with you completely. This all coming from a woman who had statues of fetuses from beginning until it was ready to be born displayed in her 4th grade class. She also showed a video of women giving birth where everything was exposed and showed abortions being done. I am now 32 years old and will never forget those images. she wants to say children now a days are molded to be gay. What a hypocrite! What was she trying to do, mold us to be discrimitive so called Catholics like her. I am a devout Catholic but I believe that all children are children of God.

Mary Ann Kreitzer said...

Of course all children are children of God. He's the Creator. He made us for Himself. He also gave us laws to follow, not suggestions. Those who reject those laws are in danger of hell. And those who encourage the sins of others not only jeopardize their own souls, but the souls of those they claim to care about. That doesn't sound like love to me.

As for your memory, it's faulty. I don't recall having the fetal models in my classroom at all, but it's possible that I did during respect life month in October. If so, the principal was well aware of it and approved. So trash her next.

Where I frequently used the models was a few years later. I often had a display table outside church when I was head of the pro-life committee. But what possible objection could anyone have to how babies grow in the womb? It's called the "miracle of life before birth" and you can get a little brochure of the stages of fetal development in any ob/gyn's office.

You are totally off-base on the video. I never ever showed a video to my fourth grade of childbirth or abortion. It would have been totally age inappropriate for one thing and I never did it. I did have a tiny basket on my desk with a sweet little 12-week baby model covered in a tiny blanket. Many of my students used to come up to the desk and ask to look at it. I carry a similar one in my purse today and my little grandchildren beg to "hold the tiny baby."

You say you are a "devout Catholic", but seem to have an animosity toward the Church's pro-life teaching and my defense of it. Odd position for a "devout Catholic." But who knows what you mean by devout? After all, Nancy Pelosi calls herself a "devout Catholic" and so did pro-aborts Ted Kennedy and Jim Moran. One wonders from their perspective what a non-devout Catholic would look like.

You seem to focus a lot on homosexuality. Most of your blogs are about how homosexuals are going to hell. Who are you to determine that? That doesn't seem to be very Christian to me.
I also asked several classmates if they remember the video and they do. They called your name out before I even had to say anything. I also remember parents complaining about it. It was not age appropriate. You say now kids are being taught at the playpen about sexuality. What were you doing to a group of fourth graders.
The bible also says that wives and children should be stoned to death. But of course you would never do that but you do focus on the homosexual thing. As for devout, I go to church every Sunday. I even give out Eucharist and the priest knows about my life style.
So you think that the homosexuals you know should live a life of celibacy? You don't think they deserve love like you do? You are crazy! Homosexuality is not about sex. You can't always choose who you love and for people that are gay they chosen life for them would be to pretend to be heterosexual. That would not be fair to any parties involved. This is not a life people would choose. It is a hard life that is not widely accepted, a lot of gay people have parents that disown them and comity suicide because of the standards of society and bible thumpers like you. It is a sad reality that people with your mind set exist.

Ah...there we have it. You are justifying your sinful lifestyle and your priest is an enabler who is tickling your ears.

Not much more to say here. I'll pray for you. You are in grave spiritual danger and I think you know it, hence your anger at me.
