7/29/15: Time for moral parents to exit the Boy Scouts

July 29, 2015 -- For Immediate Release
Time for moral parents to exit the Boy Scouts
Statement by President Randy Thomasson
Sacramento, California -- Veteran family values leader Randy Thomasson, president of, which promotes moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement in response to the Boy Scouts' national executive board voting to allow scoutmasters who are openly homosexual or bisexual (and perhaps even transsexual, under BSA's new, broad "sexual orientation" policy):

"Permitting homosexual men to go on camping trips and pitch their tents next to impressionable boys opens the door to increased molestations. Already, 5,000 molesters have been kicked out of the Scouts for sexually abusing boys in their care. This new policy of the morally compromised Boy Scouts of America throws gasoline on the fire, making the Boy Scouts an unsafe place for kids. Fathers and mothers who want their sons to be taught moral virtues must leave the Boy Scouts behind.

"Families can and should partner with reliable Christian-based scouting organizations, which are already shaping boys to become men who are morally straight with an authentic love for Jesus Christ and His Golden Rule. It's time to say good-bye to the Boy Scouts, which has essentially become the 'Gay Scouts.' It's time for dads and moms to learn about safe, reputable, character-building organizations for their children, such as Trail Life USA, Royal Rangers, Awana, Christian Service Brigade, and American Heritage Girls."
