Time to protect society

This is in regards to the idea of the United Way withholding funds from the Boy Scouts of America due to their lack of tolerance toward certain people. Tolerance? Is that what you call forcing an organization to compromise their beliefs in order to receive funds?

God bless the Boy Scouts of America. It’s nice to know there are still those who won’t change their values or ethics for the almighty buck. And how sad it is to know that homosexuals have another victory. Wasn’t it bad enough when they managed to get their “alternative lifestyle” into the public school system (starting in kindergarten)?

If homosexuals feel they are being discriminated against, why don’t they try keeping their mouths shut? I don’t recall seeing heterosexual marches or parades, nor I do recall hearing people proclaiming their heterosexuality.

Churches, pastors, priests, rabbis, Christians and even those of you who just agree with the Boy Scouts: Let’s unite and help support this organization. We have to take a stand against the immorality that’s so prevalent in our society, which started going downhill when God and the Bible were taken out of the schools.
