Bryan Fischer of the Christian
conservative American Family Association (AFA) gave the Boy Scouts
the nickname “Boy Sodomizers of America” after the organization
agreed to drop its ban on openly gay youth.
At its annual gathering on Thursday
outside Dallas, Texas, 61 percent of the roughly 1,400 volunteer
leaders from scouting's 270 councils approved a proposal put forth by
the BSA to end its ban on openly gay scouts. The resolution, which
takes effect January 1, keeps in place a ban on gay adults.
The move comes more than a decade after
the organization won its Supreme Court case allowing it to exclude gay
scouts and leaders.
Fischer, who in February put the
chances of approval at “off the charts in remoteness” and
predicted “a big, big, big setback for Big Gay,” admitted that he
was shocked by the vote.
“BSA no longer stands for the Boy
Scouts of America. It now stands for the Boy Sodomizers of America,”
told his Focal Point listeners on Friday. “Because that is
exactly what is going to happen.” (The video is embedded on this
