Well the Boy Scouts of America have heard you. They are backtracking on their plan to allow children to be exposed to the risk of homosexual Scout masters. The homosexual agenda has been trying for years to capture BSA, and nearly succeeded last month when the board governing the Scouts announced it would remove its ban on homosexual leaders. After an enormous backlash from scouting families and the general public, the Scouts now say:
“After careful consideration and extensive dialogue within the Scouting family, along with comments from those outside the organization, the volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Board concluded that due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy.”
Furthermore, the board is forming a task force to examine the issue.
It’s good that the BSA is stopping its immediate plans to put Scouts at risk of more of what happened in the past when thousands were molested by male leaders. It’s regrettable that the BSA is stubbornly digging in its heels and not closing the door completely to a very bad and dangerous idea to expose yet more children to the horrors of sexual abuse.
Some of the BSA board members may be hoping the clamor against this will die down in the next four months. Arizonans and others must keep up the pressure. Stay on the attack. Keep telling them “no!” This is not over, and they can’t change our minds just by stalling the decision until May.

Remember the homosexual activist who shot a guard at the Family Research Council in Washington D.C. last summer? World Net Daily reports …
Evidence obtained from the computer of the man who pleaded guilty today to the armed attack on the Family Research Council headquarters shows he identified his target through the website of the left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center, according to the District of Columbia prosecutor on the case.
FRC President Tony Perkins said today the evidence and admissions in a District of Columbia court justify his charge last summer that SPLC “gave license” to Floyd Lee Corkins II to attack the Christian organization’s headquarters Aug. 15.
Corkins, 28, has confessed he was motivated by FRC’s stance against homosexuality and same-sex “marriage.” He pleaded guilty today to three charges stemming from the shooting in the nation’s capital, including committing an act of terrorism.
“The Southern Poverty Law Center can no longer say that it is not a source for those bent on committing acts of violence,” Perkins said.

Robert Graham, newly elected chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, is forming a committee of to plan for Arizona’s next redistricting process in 2020. “Arizona’s political landscape today reflects a flawed process where election districts were drawn up based on a one-sided political agenda and too much secrecy, and I’m taking action now to make sure that doesn’t happen again,” said Graham. “We are looking for an honest and open process that doesn’t favor one group of voters over another — one that is truly bipartisan and treats voters equally while putting an end to the discrimination against Republicans.” Good luck, Robert. The Department of Justice has saddled the re-districting process with ridiculous requirements like “communities of interest” and racial profiling.

Phoenix Channel 5 News reports: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s exercise Saturday at a closed school site in suburban Fountain Hills will simulate scenarios for posse members who volunteered for patrols that the sheriff launched last month just outside schools to guard against shootings. Action-film star and posse member Steven Seagal will serve as an instructor at the event. The sheriff hopes to have as many as 400 posse members and another 100 volunteers known as reserve deputies participate in the patrols.

We’ve been saying for years that Fox News isn’t as conservative as radical left-wingers think they are. Megyn Kelly and Shepherd Smith are all for the destruction of the family and for same-sex “marriage.” Geraldo lives on Fox. Bill O’Reilly is all over the map on issues. Kirsten Powers? Lefty.
And now here’s more proof. Dick Morris and Sarah Palin are out as Fox News analysts. Karl Rove is being retained after years of embarrassing election miscalculations.
And coming on board? Former Ohio congressman, Dennis Kucinich … a communist. Surely he’ll get Fox News’ Kremlin beat.
