Boy Scouts launch new site and stand firm on timeless values

Posted: Updated:
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

A coalition of parents and scout leaders from Boy Scout troops across the country gathered in downtown Orlando Saturday to protest a controversial issue that has split one of the nation's largest youth development organizations in half.  The protesters target was the regional meeting for the Central Florida Boy Scout Council.  

This is all because Parents, Scoutmasters, Eagle Scouts and other Scouting leaders from across the country announced the launch of OnMyHonor.Net, a coalition of concerned Boy Scouts of America (BSA) members who affirm Scouting's timeless values and will work to keep open homosexuality out of the Boy Scouts.  The announcement coincided with the Central Florida Council's Town Hall Meeting in Orlando, FL which was attended by BSA CEO Wayne Brock and National Commissioner Tico Perez.  

Representatives from thirteen different states including Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Utah attended the launch and gave brief statements of disagreement with a membership policy which would inject sex and politics into the program.  FOX 35's Ray Raimundi has the story.
