Robert Smith takes on the issue of forcing the Boy Scouts of America to abandon its Christian morality which followed by the issue racism afflicting both White Americans and African Americans. Both are great food for thought.

In recent days the Director of The Boy Scouts of America, the former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, has determined that homosexuals must be allowed to become scouts.
As a former scout I know the oath that each scout must take on becoming a scout.
The oath: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to GOD and my country. To obey the scout laws. To help other people at all times. To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and MORALLY STRAIGHT.
[Blog Editor: Apparently Gates is pursuing the long term Obama agenda of transforming America into an immoral Left Wing paradigm.]
Homosexuality is a perversion and committing of immoral acts that are condemned by the Christian and Jewish faiths.
It should not be allowed to taint an honorable institution like The Boy Scouts of America. This sort of advocacy and advancement for immoral lifestyles to be inserted into heretofore morally guided and largely Christian institutions and organizations must be stopped. It is tearing down the fabric of our society.

A belief that some races are by nature superior to others has been with us since the different races began to intermingle.
Prior to that it was tribalism. An example are the Native Americans. Until the white man landed in America they only had seen others of their own race but were constantly at war with other tribes.
Racism is for those with lesser intellects and those with a need to be superior to other human beings. You will find racists in every color, white, black, red, yellow, and brown. I am sure if there were striped and polka dot [people] there would be racists among them.
I have served in three wars, two of them as a combat infantryman and I have seen many wounded and dead of all colors. The thing I noticed most all of them [is that they] bleed the same color.
I have met many racists and most of them had several things in common, a lack of common sense and intelligence. They also had a sense of superiority and the need to prove it and the need to be right in all things at all times.
Here in our country the largest showing of racism is between the blacks and whites.
There are however many blacks and whites who are endeavoring to end the racial divide and to help the races live together in peace and harmony. There are also those, both black and white, who keep agitating each other causing racial turmoil.
I will first name some of those who are trying to end the strife between the races that will allow us to coexist in a peaceful and friendly manner.
Some who are working toward those goals to name a few – Allen West, Dr. Carol Swain, Deneen Borelli, David Webb, Kelly Wright, Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingraham, Niger Innis, A. B. Stoddard, Harris Faulkner, Sean Hannity, Ben Carson, Alveda King, Herman Cain, Sheriff David Clark, and the list goes on.
Some of those who are continually agitating and race baiting are, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Michelle Obama, Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright, Eric Holder, Rahm Emanuel and sundry others that make a living from it.
And yes black lives matter as the lives of any other race. However if you put yourself in a confrontational [posture] with law enforcement officers you are putting yourself in danger.
We know there are racists in all positions of authority. These people must be confronted and eliminated from the organizations they represent. All Americans of all races must take a stand to eliminate where ever it exists. Then and only then will we have conquered the ugly existence of racism.
