Rick Santorum Is On A Birther Website Whining About How The Boy Scouts Are Ruining America

We told you how the Boy Scouts of America are begrudgingly joining the 20th Century and (probably) allowing gay scouts and scoutmasters into their fold. They may even be contemplating changing their motto from “Be Prepared” to “Better Late Than Never.” As you might guess, PA’s own Rick Santorum, God’s indefatigable culture warrior, spit Kool-Aid all down his sweater vest, then vomited up some words over at WorldNetDaily.com, the site for all of your Birther/Obama-is-a-gay-married-muslim needs. The Scouts’ impending decision obviously leaves our Lil’ Ricky less than gay. Here’s his opening graf:

Over the past 50 years, the left in America has successfully transformed American society. Among the long list of liberal victories is the growth of the welfare state, sexual liberation, removing God from the public square, abortion, affirmative action, redistribution of wealth, more government control of business, radical environmentalism and the transformation of the family.

But that’s just the preamble. Santorum’s article is whiny and pleading and then, there’s a petition he wants you to sign. These are important things, and the former Senator points out that the BSA “would not, under any circumstances, dictate a position to units, members, or parents. In other words, it will allow local troops to decide for themselves, and those local troops that stick to the traditional core principles could continue without fear.” Still, Ricky knows that the bigotry and hatred so out of step with the real principles of scouting will not survive unless mandated at the highest institutional level. Check this out:

First, this policy change will remove the legal protection given to them by the most recent Supreme Court case that permitted the BSA to include or exclude members based upon commonly held “viewpoints.” If those principles are now optional, every troop that doesn’t want a homosexual or atheist scoutmaster will be sued. That assumes those troops run by faith-based individuals and church hosts will stay with the Boy Scouts. Many will simply leave and pursue alternative ways to continue to invest in the development of their young men’s character, leaving the Scouts hollowed out at its core.

It’s almost like the last election cycle broke him. He ends with a truly creepy gun metaphor for Crissakes:

Scouting may not survive this transformation of American society, but for the sake of the average boy in America, I hope the board of the Scouts doesn’t have its fingerprints on the murder weapon.

These were the best bits, but you should read the whole rant here. And be careful with that website: You can get lost for hours in the batshit.

    My favorite part about that site is the huge banner running across the
    top, touting WND as “A Most Trustworthy News Source,” as determined by
    something named Enumclaw. Isn’t that the phrase Apache Chief used
    to say whenever he wanted to turn into a giant indian? Oh, wait. My bad. That
    was “Eh-neeek-chock!”
