Boy scouts, have they been destroyed?

Imagine a cancer feeding on the very flesh that supports it. Until nether flesh nor the cancer can survive.
Now imagine an organized systematic entity destroying the institutions, constitution, family values and religious expressions in the United States. What would be left of our republic with no basic freedom. Remember when it is gone that is IT, it's over.

Wy do we have to go to capital hill to protect our selves from predatory organizations who are out to destroy the fabric of freedom? We have a constitution and a bill of rights that have been systematically bastardized by activist judges. Im in fear we are on that slippery slope to destruction. For every liberal interruption of our founding document is a seed of cancer.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers, led by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., introduced legislation yesterday to make sure the Boy Scouts of America can use government facilities for gatherings, meetings and events.

The ''Support Our Scouts Act of 2005" would protect the organization from attacks by the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups challenging federal support for the BSA because the organization administers a religious oath and prohibits homosexuals as scout masters.

The bill says no federal law, directive, rule, instruction or order should limit any federal agency from providing support to the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts. The legislation removes any doubt that federal agencies may welcome Scouts to hold meetings and go camping on federal property.

An ongoing lawsuit by the ACLU says federal support of the group, including about $2 million annually for the National Scout Jamboree, amounts to religious discrimination and violates the separation of church and state.

The Pentagon last year settled one such lawsuit by telling military bases around the world not to become direct sponsors of Boy Scout troops or Cub Scout dens. Military personnel can now sponsor Boy Scout groups only in their civilian capacity.
