A Grand Opportunity for Boy Scouts Who Hate Gays

This very exciting news from Media Matters:

"Fox News host Mike Huckabee will be the keynote speaker at the Inaugural National Leadership Convention for On My Honor's Youth Adventure Program, an anti-gay program formed in response to the Boy Scouts of America's (BSA) new membership policy permitting openly gay scouts."

Actually, I think there already was an organization along those lines.  Here's a picture of it:

Nazism was very popular among the German youth. Historian Ian Kershaw explains that the young people of Germany in the 1920s and 30s were to young too have fought in the war, but was suffering from the economic fallout from it. Naturally, they were the most susceptible to Hitler's message of betrayal by the dark forces of Jewish/Bolshevik force from the home front. We may be facing a similar situation now (and more so in the future) with our own youth that was too young for W.'s wars, but, from high unemployment among the young,are susceptible to Tea Party propaganda.

Indoctrinate them young! Teach them WHAT to think rather than teaching them HOW to think. That is the modus operandi of fundamentalists, all kinds of fundamentalists!

I believe a key component of the current "Common Core" education initiatives is an emphasis on critical thinking. Hopeful??
