Romney vs. the Boy Scouts

By Rick Pearcey • August 8, 2012, 01:32 PM

LifeSiteNews.com is reporting that Mitt Romney "stands by a 1994 statement that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) should admit homosexuals to the organization, as members or adult supervisors, according to a campaign spokesperson."

"During a 1994 debate with Ted Kennedy," LifeSiteNews continues, "Romney said, 'I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.'"

Romney's reaffirmation of his 1994 statement is unfortunate, in the extreme, literally. Yes, he does well by affirming that the Boy Scouts should be able "to decide what it wants to do on that issue."

But in relation to a more foundational concern, he seems not to understand that the homosexualist worldview at its core stands in direct opposition to the freedom worldview of the Founders and the Declaration.

How so? The Creator who is the basis for unalienable rights is also the same (knowable and verifiable and publicly actionable) Creator who is the basis for distinquishing real marriage from counterfeit marriage.

Homosexualists are pushing a monodimensional naturalistic sameness (ill-labeled "equality" for marketing and PR purposes), but the Creator affirms male-female diversity and liberation within the circle of marriage.

"Sexual orientation" is another ill-founded wobbly cliche employed to impose an extremist agenda.

But it is better understood as political disorientation for the uninformed and factually challenged. It opens wide the door for any immoral practice harmful to consenting adults and unsuspecting kids. Go ahead, make NAMBLA's day.

On the issue of Boy Scouts, therefore, Romney is embracing an anti-Creator and anti-human bigtory that places him against the mainstream U.S. position as set forth in our defining and foundational documents.

It's an extremist position, an untenable position, an un-American position, and a losing position.

Political memo to Mitt: Americans seeking liberation from Obamaville remain a people of bold colors and bright ideals, not 50 shades of pastel. Don't let nuance devolve into nonsense.
