Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) took the floor in the House this week to rip the "intolerant Left" for bullying the sexual morality out of the Boy Scouts by campaigning for an end to their discriminatory policies.
Said Bridenstine (my transcript):
Some of us in America still believe in the concept of sexual morality, that sex is intended for one man and one woman within the institution of marriage. Organizations that hold this philosophy and promote it among our youth should be commended, or at least you would think, tolerated. Unfortunately, the intolerant Left bullies and browbeats private organizations like the Boy Scouts into accepting their philosophy. Notice they didn't start their own organization. They went after the Boy Scouts of America.
The Left's agenda is not about tolerance, and it's not about diversity of thought. It's about presenting a worldview of relativism, where there is no right and wrong. Then using the full force of the government to silence opposition and reshape organizations like the Boy Scouts into instruments for social change.
To my friends on the Left, this is not tolerance. but here's the good news about true tolerance. the most tolerant one of all has the ability to redeem us all.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
