AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
January 31, 2013
More Info on Boy Scouts’ Upcoming Decision
Pressure on the Boy Scouts is mounting to change their policy and permit open homosexuals to be leaders and members. The AFA of PA has joined others in calling for the removal of Executive Board members Jim Turley and Randall Stephenson. Click here to read our news release.
1.) Call the BSA National Office at 1-877-272-1910. Expect this toll free number to be busy! Here are some other numbers to try 972-580-2400 or 2401, 2405, 2239, 2443, 2280, 2199. Please listen to your options and choose the number for “other”. Message: “I am against the policy change which would allow open homosexuals to serve as leaders and members. I am also calling for the resignation of CEOs Jim Turley and Randall Stephenson from the Scout Executive Board. They have an agenda which is not in the best interest of Scouting.” (NOTE: I just tried all the numbers and the toll free was busy; the 2400 and 2401 numbers simply had a voice message that said go to the website and click on the “Share Your Feedback” button; the 2239 number had a person pick up, but as soon as I told her why I was calling she activated a recording saying the same as the first two; at the 2443 number I was able to leave a voice message. I encourage you to go down through the list of numbers as I did and leave the above message wherever you can.) You can also email at firstname.lastname@example.org
2.) Does your church or another neighborhood church sponsor a Boy Scout troop? Cub Scouts? If so, they need to understand that if the Scouts change their national policy and simply allow regional Scout Councils and local troops to decide whether or not to allow homosexual Scout leaders and members, THEY will be on the front lines and pressured by homosexual activists and their allies to put into place sexual orientation policies opening their leadership and ranks to open homosexuals. Contact any church you know that is currently sponsoring the Boy Scouts and ask them to contact the national office or their local Scout leaders to express their concerns.
