Yesterday, actor and activist Chuck Norris wrote a column on AmmoLand.com accusing President Obama of secretly planning to “create a pro-gay Boy Scouts of America.”
Norris also attacked Ernst & Young CEO and Boy Scouts of America board member James Turley’s recent statement that he would “work from within” to try and eliminate the organization’s ban on gays.
Is it a coincidence that Turley came out swinging against the BSA’s century-old policy to ban gays from leadership and that he has such close affiliations with the pro-gay Obama administration?
Is it a coincidence that Turley and his wife, Lynne, were just guests at a state dinner hosted by President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama in honor of British Prime Minister David Cameron at the White House on March 14?
Is it a coincidence that Turley was nominated to President Obama’s Export Council in 2010
Is it a coincidence that a couple of months ago, Obama reversed his position on marriage, extending the union to gay couples, and that Turley just came out of the closet in his position against the BSA’s position?
GLAAD spokesperson Rich Ferraro responded: “Chuck Norris should talk to Mitt Romney, who Norris endorsed for President and who has said on the record (video below) that all Americans should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts of America regardless of sexual orientation."
