Anti-Gay Activists Launch Scouting Alternative for Boys Who Don't 'Openly Flaunt Sexuality': VIDEO


In late June, Towleroad reported on plans by anti-gay activist John Stemberger to create a new, anti-gay alternative to the Boy Scouts. You may recall Stemberger from the time Zach Wahls utterly destroyed him on CNN.

Yesterday, Stemberger made his big announcement:

GreenThe splinter group, OnMyHonor.Net, said the new organization will offer an outdoors-oriented character-development program for boys similar to that of the Boy Scouts, while also focusing on “sexual purity” and adhering to “a standard statement of Christian values.”

The new organization, which has yet to be named, stopped short of banning gay children but said it would bar any members who “openly flaunt sexuality.”

“We have heard directly from over 30,000 people that recommended a need for this organization,” said Rob Green, a former top Boy Scouts leader in South Carolina and now interim executive director of OnMyHonor.Net’s new program. “There is an organization existing now that is in line with your values.”

Watch a video in which Stemberger and Rob Green (inset), a former BSA executive who is leading the new organization, talk more about it, AFTER THE JUMP...

Writes Good As You:

Rob Green has vowed to stick by his belief that "homosexuality is morally wrong." Which, of course, will be what this new organization will always be about. This is an organization that they are creating for the sole purpose of excluding gay people and keeping anti-gay teaching in place. That will always be what defines this new organization, regardless of what they call it, how they spin it, or where it goes from here. Its history begins with wanton discrimination against gay minors. That history is already written and forever ingrained.

  1. 'The new organization, which has yet to be named"
    I suggest
    "Salazar Slytherin's Blow Job Academy"

  2. Apparently these idiots have forgotten all about weekend camp outs and summer camp. In pre-internet days that's how I learned about puberty, sexuality, masturbation and the workings of a hard penis.

  3. The new alternative is just like another group which aims to restrict its membership based upon willful ignorance and lies. They are called Stormfront. I'm sure the leaders of this new group are very familiar with Stormfront.

  4. Pity the kids made to do this by their homophobe parents.
    Social issue awareness by their peers will find them ostracized and taking criticism for their parents lunacy.

    This will fail miserably.

    GoodasYou's Jeremy Hooper got it pefectly: 'Its history begins with wanton discrimination against gay minors'.

  5. how about PP/VAJJ Scouts?

  6. ...the irony of this is that it will draw that anti-gay elements out of the BSA, leaving behind the more secular, pro-gay folks. They have basically turned over the scouting organization with the biggest brand name over to us. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

  7. This reminds me of when the Dixiecrats abandoned the Democratic party and ran to the Republican party. Dixiecrats ran because of civil rights and these morons are running because of gay rights.

  10. Finally a club where Rick/Jason can finally find peers who hate gays just as much as he does.

  11. UGH, sounds like a perfect storm of sexual abuse, like the words "youth pastor".

  12. Let's see: substitute "racial purity" for "sexual purity" and "a standard statement of National Socialist values" for "a standard statement of Christian values" and you have the makings of a new "Hitler Youth Movement". If that ain't American, I don't know what is to this country's Christianist homophobic right wingers.

  13. Jeez. They're both closeted queens, specially the "absolutely thrilled" guy.

  14. Eric makes a very thoughtful point. The creation of a special anti-gay scout organization WILL help the pro-gay forces in the regular BSA. This act probably hastens the day when openly gay adults can serve as leaders.

    It is too soon to tell whether or not the new anti-gay scouts will prosper. Sometimes, a group can fool you. Consider the South's "segregation academies." They were founded in the '50s and '60s by white people who were willing to pay money to keep their kids out of integrated schools. But, once they were established they functioned like any other private schools. Today, most of them admit blacks. This new anti-gay scout group will have to exist in an increasingly gay-friendly America. Furthermore, some of their boys and even leaders will be gay. Time will tell how things will play-out.

  15. More child abuse. It's amazing how many different ways adults can find to destroy children's hearts and minds.

  16. Hey flaunting hypocrite, take off the wedding ring!!

  17. Ok. Let them have their angry club.

  18. Rob Green lives in the city I live in and wrote a long missive/resignation letter about why he was quitting his paid job with the BSA. It was disgusting and ugly and it was forwarded all around town and published in the paper. Just sad.

  19. A fallback line for bigots, this is doomed to fail. Losers.

  20. The Asexual Scouts of America. Motto: ’Sexual Purity’. No homosexuals/heterosexuals allowed.

    Posted by: AndyTowlette | Jul 10, 2013 1:09:48 PM

  21. These Christian values they have...I wonder if they follow the rest of the Bible to the letter? Probably not, since they can't think critically.

  22. I would hope that the BSA doesn't allow them to use any of their campgrounds.

    Posted by: Mike in the tundra | Jul 10, 2013 1:20:32 PM

  23. They're lying. Scouts will be free to flaunt their sexuality in the new "scouting alternative," but only if it's heterosexual. More lying. Nobody's fooled.

    Posted by: Artie_in_Lauderdale | Jul 10, 2013 1:21:49 PM

  24. Uh, there are still going to be gay kids in the Brown Shirts BSA. The only thing the new policy changed is finally admitting that gay kids exist and letting them stay in the organization.

    Posted by: Caliban | Jul 10, 2013 1:22:06 PM

  25. there is, of course, no such thing as "flaunting your sexuality"

    that's something bigots say, that insecure gay conservatives repeat.

    "flaunting" is merely not being a cowardly apologist.
