Chuck Norris has suggested that
President Barack Obama has called in a favor from James Turley,
asking the CEO to change the Boy Scouts of America's policy against
openly gay scouts and leaders from within.
Turley, the CEO of Ernst & Young,
his opposition to the gay ban nearly two weeks ago.
In an op-ed titled Is
Obama Creating a Pro-Gay Boy Scouts of America? published at
AmmoLand.com, Norris suggested Obama influenced Turley to speak out.
“Is it a coincidence that Turley is
in tight cahoots with the White House and that he is the only BSA
national board member in 100 years to oppose its pro-traditional
family stance?” he wrote.
“Is it a coincident that Turley just
announced his resignation as CEO of Ernst & Young (effective June
2012) and that he is now offering the White House a parting pro-gay
BSA gift in gratitude for all its presidential favors to him and
Ernst & Young over the past few years?”
Norris also criticized the president
for his lack of involvement in the Boy Scouts.
