Bryan Fischer of the Christian conservative American Family Association (AFA) is worried that by allowing openly gay scouts and leaders the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) will make the term “morally straight” meaningless.

The BSA's national board will consider ending its national ban and allowing local chapters to decide the issue at its regularly scheduled meeting, which began on Monday.

On his Focal Point radio show, Fischer said that without the ban the organization's pledge, in which Scouts vow to remain “physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight” – will need to change.

“Even homosexuals refer to us as 'straights,'” Fischer explained to a caller. “Because we're straight. We're not crooked, we're not bent, we're not twisted, we're not perverse, we're straight. I mean, the opposite of straight is bent, twisted, crooked, perverse. So the term [morally straight] is going to be meaningless now.” (The video is embedded on this page.

Other conservatives who have criticized the proposal include Richard Land, who described the ban as a “core value” of scouting, and Rick Santorum, who said the Boy Scouts may not survive if the ban is lifted.
