Today, Trail Life USA, the Christian Scouting alternative sent out its Spring News update. According to the information that I have received from several sources, a good portion of their members are kids who never joined the Boy Scouts of America. Perhaps these are the same children who are home schooled to avoid being “indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle” or exposed to evolution.

The email informs us of various personnel changes including the COO being promoted to CEO. All fascinating, no doubt.

However, we must not forget that this organization only exists because of one man’s extreme homophobia. That would be John Stemberger and he is an ignorant man. Mr. Stemberger seems to believe that sexual orientation is both a choice and contagious. Perhaps he is projection. Trail Life USA exists solely to discriminate against gay boys. It disgusts me. It is no different than proudly proclaiming “No Jews allowed!”
