Holder Smears Boy Scouts As Homophobic Bigots for not allowing gay scoutmasters


The king of scandal and secrecy, Eric Holder is jawing off about how he thinks the Boy Scouts of America should be running their organization.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the refusal by the Boy Scouts of America to allow gay adults to be scout leaders “perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes.”

In remarks for delivery to a gay rights organization, Lambda Legal, Holder said with the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, “courageous lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals routinely put their lives on the line” in the armed services.

“If these men and women are fit for military service, then surely they are fit to mentor, to teach, and to serve as role models for the leaders of future generations.”

Holder said the Boy Scouts of America is “an iconic American institution.” But he said its policy is “a relic of an age of prejudice and insufficient understanding.”

Boy Scouts of America President Robert Gates, who helped oversee the demise of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” when he was secretary of defense, told the Scouts’ annual meeting last month that while he personally favors a change, now is not the time to pursue it.

Do you think the DOJ Attorney General, Eric Holder, has the authority to force the BSA to have gay scout masters? A conversation like this from the US Department of Justice can only mean they are positioning themselves to impede the First Amendment.
