Anti-gay Boy Scout protest: More 'Burn-in-Hell'-y than initially realized

by Jeremy Hooper

When it went down a few weeks back, I posted some of the truly nasty signs ("Homosexuality is an abomination unto God"; "God votes no on gays"; etc) that attendees of the official "Save Our Boy Scouts" rally chose to carry. But now the coalition has posted a video from the proceedings, and it turns out some of the signs were even more direct than I thought. Like this:

Full video follows. Keep in mind that the official coalition opposing us (Family Research Council & Texas Values) proudly posted this:

They are not the victims. This is not an attack on "religious freedom." This is a conversation about two messages that future generations will see and hear. Judging by their own rallies, the official coalition fighting equal scouting wants citizens to see gays as hellhound abominations. We have other ideas.

The Boy Scouts of America has a choice. For the future.
