‘Save Our Scouts’ Rally Comes to Irving Tomorrow

From Texas Values, whose “vision is to stand for biblical, Judeo-Christian values by ensuring Texas is a state in which religious liberty flourishes, families prosper, and every human life is valued”:

Pastors, if the scouts fall, the church is next in the sights of the activists committed to forcing their immorality on society — WILL YOU COME?

Fathers, if we allow our boys to be targeted by those who believe there is no moral code and no definition of gender — WHO WILL DEFEND OUR CHILDREN?

Mothers, your voice of courage and protection of the virtue of our children is desperately needed — WILL YOU STAND ALSO?

Elected officials, community leaders, former and current Boy Scouts…we all need to stand!

The rally – 10 am tomorrow, at the Boy Scouts of America’s Irving headquarters – comes on the heels of an open letter from the group to the BSA, released today, and signed by more than 40 Texas lawmakers. The letter, in part, states that “Scouts begin each meeting with an Oath, ‘to do my duty, to God and my country, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. By caving in to pressure from the social left, the national leadership would violate each of those principles.”
