A prominent conservative African American broadcaster and political appointee has said that all Christian churches must drop support for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) if they let openly gay people participate in the organization.

In an article published on far-right news website WND.com entitled ‘Churches- flee BSA’s homosexual embrace,’ Alan Keyes, a Reagan era UN diplomat and former Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations who ran as a candidate in three Republican Party presidential primaries, claimed that tolerating gay scouts would be incompatible with Christian morals.

‘The Boy Scouts of America may imminently abandon the organization’s commitment to true Christian morals, allowing homosexuals into the ranks and leadership of its troops,’ Keyes wrote.

‘All Christian churches should immediately and spontaneously withdraw from their cooperation with the BSA’s corporate entity which would, from that point on, be usurping the name and reputation of the Scouting movement. The thunderous impression of their withdrawal would alert and warn all believers of the pitfall any association with the usurpers must henceforward entail.’

‘It will speedily become evident that what masquerades as tolerance is actually indoctrination, seeking to mould boys according to the standard the BSA trustees will have raised above God’s standard.’

Keyes claimed that in time there would be merit badges for scouts for experimenting in gay sex.

‘On many campuses now, refusal to experiment with homosexuality is frowned upon as a sign of bigotry, so henceforth in Scouting braking down this prejudice would be recognized as a meritorious activity,’ Keyes claimed.

‘Though camouflaged in different words there will be a merit badge for this experimentation as part of the regime of homosexual indoctrination.’

The Boy Scouts of America are currently considering whether to allow local scout branches to decide whether they want to let in gay scouts.

Supporters recently delivered a petition with 1.4 million signatures to the Boy Scouts of America’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas.

Televangelist Pat Robertson recently suggested that ending the ban might allow sexual predators and paedophiles to infiltrate the organization.
