American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer attacked the Boy Scouts of America on his Friday show for voting to allow openly-gay scouts (video below).
Yesterday, 61 percent of the delegates of the Boy Scouts’ National Council voted to allow homosexual scouts, but the ban against gay scoutmasters still remains.
“We might as well rename this organization. BSA no longer stands for the Boy Scouts of America. It now stands for the Boy Sodomizers of America because that is exactly what is going to happen,” said Fischer, reports RightWingWatch.org.
Fischer tweeted the same insult yesterday after the vote.
He then quoted Luke 17:2 from the Bible and said “these are the words of Jesus himself to the Scouts."
However, Luke 17:1-2 clearly shows the verse is addressed to Christ's "disciples" not the Boy Scouts:
And he said to his disciples, “Temptations to sin[a] are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.
Back in February, Fischer predicted that the Boy Scouts would vote against allowing openly-gay members: "The chances that this 1,400 National Council is going to remove the ban on homosexuality is nonexistent. It does not exist. It's infinitesimal. It is off the charts in remoteness. So in other words, ladies and gentlemen, this decision today means that the ban on homosexual scout masters and homosexual participants, that ban is going to be upheld."
