James Turley, CEO of Ernst & Young, and Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T, must be removed from their positions of honor on the BSA National Executive Board. Much of the current pressure to put homosexuals in leadership roles is coming from these two national board members. Stephenson is slated to become president of the BSA national board in 2014. The BSA Board meets Wednesday, February 6, 2013. Despite the fact that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the BSA's ban on homosexuals in 2000, and in light of all the reports and litigation over the abusive predation on boys by homosexual adults in leadership positions with churches and other organizations, the notion that the BSA is considering lifting its ban on homosexuals holding such positions is shocking. These BSA board members are endeavoring to force their social agenda on 3.6 million Scouts and adult leaders. They want Scouting to comply with their corporate policies, which have adopted the homosexual agenda under pressure, primarily from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the so-called "Human Rights" Campaign. We must unite the 3.6 million members in the 290 Councils and the more than 115,000 religious and civic groups under which BSA Troops are chartered and call for a change in the Executive Board not a change in our policy. Please add your name and join us in proudly standing our Scout oath: "On my honor 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."
