The Boy Scouts Are Under Attack
Remember when the radical leftists at the American Civil Liberties Union took their case against the Boy Scouts all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, to try to force them to accept homosexual scoutmasters?
Remember watching as one by one, the ACLU got cities and companies to withdraw their support for the Boy Scouts because of their insistence on their members holding a belief in God?
Once again, the Boy Scouts are under ATTACK by the ACLU -- and this time, it looks like the ACLU is going to WIN... unless WE do something to stop them!
So, once again, RightMarch.com is taking the lead by taking out a NATIOWIDE full-page ad in support of the Boy Scouts, and rallying patriotic Americans across the country to DEMAND a reversal of the outrageous settlement with the ACLU.
Last week, the U.S. Department of Defense settled with the ACLU to ban military bases from sponsoring the Boy Scouts of America. But, as noted in a WorldNetDaily column by Hans Zeiger, a student at Hillsdale College and the president of the Scout Honor Coalition, "The American military cannot survive the challenges of the 21st century without the preparatory support of the Boy Scouts of America."
Millions of our bravest heroes in uniform -- thousands who have given their lives in every war since World War I -- wore their first uniform as a Boy Scout. "A U.S. Marine now in Iraq, who also was my Scoutmaster when I was growing up, once told me that he became a Marine because he had first been a Scout," said Zeiger.
Apparently seeking the annihilation of our nation's defensive capacity along with its moral character, the ACLU announced last week that U.S. military bases will no longer be able to sponsor Boy Scout troops. It seems that our nation's military leadership has broken wartime policy to settle with the terrorists in the ACLU.
It is the Boy Scout Oath to which the ACLU responded by filing legal claims against the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Chicago Board of Education in 1999. "On my honor," goes the Oath, "I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight."
Wow. What a radically subversive oath. How has our country survived all these years with the Boy Scouts reciting something like that?
Do you see how RIDICULOUS this lawsuit by the ACLU has been -- and how OUTRAGEOUS it is that the Defense Department agreed to their demands?
We need to take out a FULL PAGE ad nationwide NOW, demanding that Defense reverse this terrible settlement, and urging Americans everywhere to stand up for the Boy Scouts.
Following its new settlement with the ACLU, the Department of Defense will be sending word to American military bases worldwide that sponsorship of the Boy Scouts is strictly prohibited. Though Boy Scouts -- primarily the children of service members -- have long met on military bases in association with a base sponsor, the days of political correctness have brought that arrangement to an end.
And this is the George W. Bush / Donald Rumsfeld Department of Defense that we're talking about!
Like an array of private organizations that, of necessity, have dealings with our nation's armed forces, the Boy Scouts adhere to beliefs and practices that fall outside the sanction of public policy. No one on our nation's military bases is coerced into supporting the Boy Scouts.
But we're willing to bet that members of our armed forces hold the Scouts in much higher esteem than they do the ACLU.
TAKE ACTION: The Department of Defense cannot expect to win wars abroad if it is capitulating to the demands of political correctness at home. Our armed forces must be aligned with the standards of character that make America worth fighting for.
We MUST take a stand for what is RIGHT -- so once again, RightMarch.com is stepping up to the plate and taking out a NATIONWIDE full-page ad to rally the support of patriotic Americans across this great country, and DEMAND that President Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld do EVERYTHING possible to reverse last week's settlement with the ACLU.
With the generous support of our members, we've taken out a number of full-page ads across the nation in the past, in widely-circulated papers like USA Today and the Washington Times National Weekly Edition. And with YOUR help, we're ready to do it again!
