Chuck Norris

Keep the Gays

OUT of the Boy Scouts!

Chuck Norris believes gay people have NO PLACE in the Boy Scouts of America ... and claims plans to overturn the "century-old policy" to ban them is simply un-American.

Chuck -- an outspoken Republican political activist -- just penned an article for AmmoLand.com ... titled, "Is Obama Creating a Pro-Gay Boy Scouts of America?"

In the article, Norris attacks James Turley -- a high ranking BSA official who recently announced his plan to "seek a change" to a Boy Scouts policy that bans gay Scouts and gay Scout leaders.

72-year-old Norris suggests Turley is only championing the cause because he's trying to curry favor with Obama's "pro-gay" administration.

Norris talks about the Boy Scouts as epitomizing the best of America. The insinuation ... that gays don't.

So, we gotta ask ...

Do we remember the days of slaves, black people in the back of the bus, women cannot wear pants, vote, take birth control etc. This country will eventually come to accept gay people b/c it is the right thing just like all the other people who were not allowed into the "white" club. Times have changed and you cannot keep discriminating against a whole group of people b/c you do not like it. Gay people are not pedos. Gary Sandusky was a pedo. Pedos are sickos with mental defects. Gays are intelligent, beautiful, hard working and fun just like you and I.

The list of people I once admired is dwindling! How about we keep PEDOPHILES away from children! Just because a person might be gay doesnt mean they are a pedophile. What an uneducated judgement and statement to put out there Chuck Norris no longer a person of good standing in my book. I will go home and remove his posters from my sons room!

by the way, where was all this outrage when the boy scouts kicked out the atheist guy? please. gays aren't the only minority group in this country that the boy scouts don't let in. if they're going to start letting gays in, as an atheist, i demand that they change their policy against allowing us in.

What next, a badge for C**k S*****g?.
I wouldn't want to know my son was in
his tent having sex with another teen.
Mr. Norris is expressing his opinion.
That's what makes this country great.
This isn't the Gay Boy Scout's of America
Club.

Nothing wrong with gay people being in the Boy Scouts.
But that choice should be left up to Boy Scouts of America, they're a private org.
They have constitutional rights to set and dictate membership standards.
So do gay people, if they chose to start a private org and not allow heterosexuals.
If gay people like Boy Scouts, they should start their own Scouts program and enjoy it.
No use waiting around for private orgs to change their policies when they're not obligated to, and probably won't.

And...Obama doesn't care about gay people, he's a vote-hungry lying little snake. Ssssssss ~~~~~>:

I have always been a fan of chuck norris, the actor. He has become a HUGE internet phenomenon over the past few years, however.....wtf? I have 4 kids and if they grow up gay it's because that is the way they were made. They deserve all of the same rights as a heterosexual person does. So one day if my son comes home and says he's gay and wants to be a scout leader, I will be all for it. Up your's Norris. Who the hell do you think you are?
