Anti-Gay Alternative to Boy Scouts Launches, with Bush Impersonator and Mike Huckabee: VIDEO


More than 1,000 people including Governor Mike Huckabee attended a launch event in Nashville over the weekend for Trail Life USA, the group formed after the Boy Scouts began admitting gay scouts. If you'll remember, the group was founded by anti-gay Scouting activist John Stemberger and Rob Green, a former BSA executive. I posted a clip of them discussing the group back in July.

CNN reports:

At the weekend event, which reporters were not allowed to attend, the group unveiled its name and logo.
The logo includes the words adventure, character and leadership.

"Trail Life USA will be inclusive of boys, regardless of religion, race, national origin or socioeconomic status, and accept boys who are experiencing same-sex attractions or gender confusion," a statement from the group says.

"However, it will not admit youth who are open or avowed about their homosexuality, and it will not admit boys who are not 'biologically male' or boys who wish to dress and act like girls."
