Boy Scouts Hold Rules on Gays, Liberals Outraged, Again

A lesbian leading a Cub Scout pack in Ohio, breaking the rule against homosexual leaders, has recently been dismissed from the Boy Scouts of America. In 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the prerogative of the Boy Scouts to restrict its leadership/membership as such, but now homosexualists, backed by Hollywood and various liberals, have launched a P.R. campaign to ruin the organization, even using Mitt Romney's own statements in their favor.

Jennifer Tyrell, a 32-year-old Bridgeport mother of four, withdrew her 7-year-old son from the Boy Scouts of America when she was recently dismissed after serving as leader of his Cub pack for several months.

Tyrell is working with, a liberal political group, on a campaign to raise awareness about the Boy Scouts' policy toward gays and lesbians. She said she gathered 140,000 signatures and said she hopes to push the organization to accept gay leaders and scouts.

The organization said it respects people's right to a different opinion.

"Scouting will continue to teach our members to treat everyone with courtesy and respect," the [BSA] statement said.

. . . Tyrrell traveled to New York from her home in Bridgeport, Ohio, to build momentum for a petition to overturn what she says are Ohio Boy Scout's anti-gay policies . . .

The Boy Scouts of America, whose oath calls for members to be "morally straight," maintains that as a private organization it has the right to exclude gays and atheists from its ranks.

That stance was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 but has led many state and local governments to deny support for the Scouts.

The organization said it believes Scouting is not the right place for youngsters to be exposed to issues of sexual orientation.

Because of the policy, Tyrrell said she only reluctantly allowed her 7-year-old son to join up in Bridgeport, where she lives with her partner and their four children. Told, she said, by the local cub master that it didn't matter that she is a lesbian, she was drafted to lead the pack in September.

Jennifer Tyrrell has collected more than 126,000 signatures for a petition on that urges the Boy Scouts of America to end their policy banning gay youth and den leaders.

“Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson along with TV stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson from ABC’s hit sitcom “Modern Family” and Max Adler from Fox’s “Glee” all signed the petition and lent their support at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defemation’s Media Awards Saturday night, an event spokesman confirmed.

“I feel as though I’m right in this, and I feel one day they’ll realize that,” Tyrrell told the Daily News Monday.

“Hopefully, with the amount of signatures we’ve collected in less than a week, we’ll send a huge statement to the Boy Scouts of America — that people are ready for a change.”
