A fledgling organization that opposed the Boys Scouts of America’s decision to accept openly gay Scouts announced Tuesday (July 9) it will launch an alternative group with a Christian worldview.

 

“It’s our vision to be the premiere national character development organization for young men which produces godly and responsible husbands, fathers and citizens,” announced Rob Green, interim executive director of the as-yet-unnamed organization.

 

“The organization’s membership policy will focus on sexual purity rather than sexual orientation,” Green said in a conference call with reporters.

John Stemberger, founder of OnMyHonor.net, which opposed the BSA policy change, differentiated between the inclusiveness of the BSA and the new organization.

 

“The issue with Scouting is just that when you’re going to allow a young man to be in the program to be openly flaunting sexuality, that’s just inappropriate and parents do not think that’s a clean and safe environment for their kids,” he said.
