Congressman on Boy Scouts: Gay Rights Being 'Crammed Down Their Throat' - VIDEO


Another guest on the 'Stand with Scouts Sunday' webcast was Rep. Steve Palazzo (R-MS), who called for the removal of "the agitators" trying to "corrupt" the Boy Scouts.

Said Palazzo:

“The Boy Scouts are actually being bullied worse than any group or organization that has ever been bullied before. They've been intimidate, they're being extorted...they're being harassed. At the end of the day they're also being ridiculed... If America cannot support the Boy Scouts...then what do we stand for as a country? [The Scouts must] “remove the agitators who are trying to corrupt the Boy Scouts of America and bend to popular culture.”

  6. Look, if the Boy Scouts want to become a fully church-funded organization and give up all the various public monies and accommodations they receive then they can stand on whatever "moral" principals they want. Until then they need to stop acting like they are somehow being victimized for being called out for discriminating.

  7. @TampaZeke - Perhaps the key here is that you made it OUT. The sane ones leave, the kooks stay and make is worse for everyone left.

  8. No. Religion, is that which is being crammed down everyone's throat, not orientation.

  11. @snt -- your comment is beyond ridiculous. No one is forcing sexuality on anyone. If you think that's how sexuality works, you need some professional help. As for forcing them to accept us -- they have no trouble accepting our financial support and they have for many years. If they can accept my gay dollars they can accept my gay children. Period. They are perfectly free to forgo any government funding or financial breaks (which are the same as funding) and then discriminate against anyone they chose; they just can't do it with government support.

  12. We should all stop bullying the scouts along with the Klan, the skin heads and those folks who want to put up the "whites only" signs. Not to mention the "no Irish" signs of old. Next thing you know we'll stop them from selling their children into slavery.

  13. Steve Palazzo comes across as a real hypocrite. He complains that the Boy Scouts are being "bullied" while that organization recently refused to give a kid in our area his Eagle Scout award after he fulfilled all the requirements, simply because he was gay. They wouldn't even give him the award he earned before kicking him out. So, it seems Palazzo has no problem with adults pushing around kids in their teens but whines when adults find such behavior on the part of the Boy Scouts to be unseemly.

  14. They will be bending over soon enough.
    Including this a**hat who's too stupid to make the distinction between following the law and breaking the law! The Church and the Boyscouts have the same idiot problem---wanting their cake and eating it too. They want the public funds and all the freebies that go with it AND they want to play in politics without PAYING ANY TAXES!
    Get a clue Mr. Palazzo(Church,BS,etc.) and get prepared to bend over and understand when it's time to take it like a real man. lol.

  15. what is his email so we can tell him how hi "culture" has been crammed down our throats forever

  16. No one is forcing anything down anyone's throat. The BSA is welcome to continue to discriminate and treat their gay members like the unclean filth we have been labeled to be. Just don't expect nice people to like you any more. And be prepared to support youselves more, maybe thru sufficiently high membership dues so you can remain the special privleged citizens you THINK you are. If you want to be bigoted, then you shall pay for the bigotry.

  20. Does anyone else find the metaphors used by the anti crowd to be so funny? They cram it down out throats. It'll blow up in our faces. Bwahahaha.....

  21. If they don't want to honor people's rights, then the boy scouts should stop taking taxpayer money and give up its tax exemptions.
