Boy Scouts consider gay-preference members

PRAYER ALERT: The Boy Scouts of America have been holding the line against persistent assaults from the gay lobby for many years. But at the Boy Scouts annual meeting on Tuesday, May 23, they are considering a compromise. They will hold a vote on a resolution to ban open homosexuals from membership, but admit as members those with a homosexual orientation or preference. As the American Family Association says, this “may put an ‘experienced’ gay 17-year-old inside a tent with a 12-year-old boy on his first camp-out. This creates a perfect environment for sexual abuse within scouting.”

The Boy Scouts of America says its mission “is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes.” Is it moral and ethical for the Boy Scouts to open the door for homosexuals to invade an institution created to help boys become men? If they do, the US Supreme Court could interpret this as a change in accepted “community values” and rule in favor of same-sex marriage. It would provide more cannon fodder for attorneys pushing to legalize sodomy in Belize and elsewhere. The argument goes, “we need to keep up with changes in the rest of the world, or else be viewed as backward hate-filled homophobes.” But that is the broad path to destruction. Pray with us that God will protect the Boy Scouts and all of us from the society-destroying gay agenda (also see petition below).

PRAY WITH US: Father God, You are our Creator, Protector and Guide. We ask that You send Your Holy Spirit to the annual Boy Scouts meeting in Texas with great righteousness, conviction and power. Show Your heart toward these tender boys becoming men. Turn the hearts of the fathers and scout leaders to these children. Help them close the doors against predators and sexual perversion. Confront them with the awful consequences of opening doors to those who would “cause any of these little ones to sin” (Luke 17:2).

Let them hear Your voice, so they may open the door to You instead.

Help them live up to the Boy Scouts Law, that they may stay “brave, clean and reverent.” Show them how to heal perversion instead of try to justify it. Overcome the loud but vain voices of the gay lobby against Your good design for boys, men and families. Demolish their arguments at the Boy Scouts annual meeting, at the Belize court case on legalizing sodomy, and at every place where marriage and family values are being attacked. Let every nation in the world, including the US and Belize, hear Your voice of authority and love on this issue. Let Your words prevail, that “male and female He created them” to “be fruitful and multiply.” And You saw that “it was very good.” In Jesus’ name, amen.
