It is clearly NOT being pressured unless some threat or sanction is made.
The BSA is clearly being PRESSURED...it is being pressured by Obama,
it is being pressured by corporate sponsors, it is being pressured by some
charitable foundations, it is being pressured by pro homo agenda groups
like GLAAD,  it is being pressured by the pro-homo lame-stream-media.



recent pressure from gay rights groups, corporate sponsors,
and Bay Area troops has forced the governing body to revisit the blanket prohibition on gay members.

Philadelphia Pressures Local BSA to Admit Gays or Lose Lease

Anti-gay groups pressure Boy Scouts to uphold discriminatory gay ban

It is not a matter of my opinion, it is clearly not a case of anyone being pressured.
It is difficult to discuss issues with someone as intellectually dishonest as you are,
but of course I am not surprised at all by your dishonesty. If it's not "pressure"
then what the hell is it?...lol. I site article after article, source after source
where respected news organizations specifically use the word "pressure "
in describing the BSA/Homo issue. But go ahead and continue living in denial that
there is not a campaign to pressure the BSA to accept the homo agenda.

Of course you living in denial of reality is not what is important,
what is important is that we shall see how it works out for local troops
that are "out of the closet" and let it be known to parents that their
young boys will be taking weekend camping trips with homosexual men.
Yeah sure parents are gonna love sending their boys to camp with homos!

Your homophobia does not make it pressure.

The homo group leading this charge even uses the word "pressure".
Your denial of reality is amusing, but only strengthens my point about the Left.
To connect KooKoo dots...I suppose sometimes reality needs to be denied.

BTW....your lying does not make sense.
I have no phobia of homosexuality.
Look up the word phobia.
I find homosexuality disgusting, unhealthy, un-natural, & especially undeserving of "special rights".
My views on homosexuality are based on facts, logic, and Judeo-Christian values.
It has nothing to do with a "phobia" because I have no fear of homos or their deviant behaviors.

You clearly have a phobia of homosexuality. Perhaps you fear that when some drag queen kisses you full on the lips you will be aroused and hideously shamed.

Pressure is more than just expressing an opinion.

You clearly have a phobia to reality and the truth.

Exactly!
And as stated the homo group leading this campaign even repeatedly uses the word "pressure".
But of course Mr. Reality Denial.....thinks Gladd is not doing what they in fact state they are doing.

Why would the Boy Scouts decide to change their position, if they do, or have, on homosexual members, troop leaders, and so forth?

Not because of GLAAD, which I've never heard of, or the press. They will change because this country has changed it's position on homosexuality.  They will change because of internal pressure to conform to the countries new norms. They will change because they no longer want to be considered out of date, hostile to an accepted group of Americans, uninformed, etc., etc.

p.s. That's understanding politics, BT. Getting elected in your town doesn't prove you know a thing about politics.

The Boy Scouts can do as they wish.

Just because some bunch of guys claim they are pressuring them does not make it so.

Can GLAAD keep boys from joining the Scouts? Can GLAAD keep the Boy Scouts from getting donations?

I really, really doubt it.

The Boy Scouts modified their position because of funding. Ergo the decision was left to the individual troops. If it were a sea change of heart the ban would have been lifted nationwide.

That is understanding politics.

Yeah sure....and then reality strikes again!



"GLAAD, together with Eagle Scout and founder of Scouts for Equality Zach Wahls, have also used Change.org petitions to pressure corporate donors such as Intel and UPS to pull funding until the Boy Scouts end their policy banning gay youth and parents."

http://www.glaad.org/blog/breaking-boy-scouts-america-looks-toward-equality-considers-lifting-ban




Join Zach Walls In Telling UPS To Stop Funding Anti-Gay Boy Scouts


"Wahls recently called for Intel, which also gave to the BSA in 2010, to cease its donations, prompting the company to clarify that it has updated its donation policy to only fund organizations that vow not to discriminate based on sexual orientation, which would exclude the BSA. In 2010, Intel reportedly gave the Boy Scouts more than $700,000. GLAAD urges everyone to sign the petition and tell UPS to follow its own nondiscrimination policy and take a stand for equality"

The problem is pot has too much support. Meaning any negative data on pot will be immediately attacked to the point that it's ok to smoke pot while driving. I simply can't trust this issue will be safely addressed. Ex. It's non-addictive-but many goto clinic to quit.

Kimba I have a high school friend that I still see every so often and he still smokes an enormous amount of weed. This dude smokes weed 365 days a year. It's sad seeing him now. He is always depressed and broke. But he's going to smoke whether it's legal or not.

I'll bet alot of of us knows somebody like this. Non-addictive my a--
I remember a robins williams joke " pot is anything but performance enhancing".
Actually barrack is not a good example of a pot smoker since he only tried it but never continued it.
If he did continue then thats makes pot alot more harmless than we thought

Kimba....I am sure there are studies, but i would presume since weed does not have a filter it could be worse for you than cigarettes? It would seem like it would be worse for your lungs? But maybe weed does not have tar and nicotene? I wonder if they legalize it and it becomes corporate would companies selling "weed cigarettes" add filters?

Kimba....it will interesting to watch as time goes on how much intrusion ObamaCare will allow gvt to enter so many aspects of our lives. With gvt in control of healthcare as we move forward....will the gvt start demanding we not eat as many carbs? not eat fastfoods?, not drink sodas? not smoke at all? not eat sweets? not consume alcohol? because all those things can lead to health problems which will mean higher healthcare costs the gvt must now cover? sure it wouldn't all happen overnight, but I suspect the control freaks will slowly use ObamaCare for more control over the "peasants"!
