4:20 – Boy Scouts Resolution Caves To Outside Pressures
The Boy Scouts of America’s executive committee has made a proposal that the BSA would no longer deny membership to youth on the basis of sexual orientation but would maintain its ban on openly gay adult leaders. The proposal is expected to be presented to the Boy Scouts' voting members at its May meeting in Dallas. If the policy is approved, it will take effect January 1. The proposed resolution also continues to leave scouting units who decline to allow open homosexuality vulnerable to attacks by lawsuits and runs of the principles and convictions of most of the major faith denominations comprising 70 percent of the chartering partner units in Scouting. We talk to John Stemberger, Eagle Scout and Founder of OnMyHonor.net
4:40 – Black Church Leads Effort to Picket the NAACP
Levon Yuille, Pastor of the Ypsilanti Bible Church and National Director of the National Black Pro-Life Congress. He has said, “I’ve been grappling with the fact that the NAACP is in bed with the very organization that has brought black genocide to our community.” He joins us to share his plans for the NAACP annual convention coming to Detroit.
5:00 – Muslim Ties to Boston Bombing Continue to Grow and Grow
Last week in the U.S., Europe, and the Caucasus, people are asking how the terrorists got to Europe and then into the United States. Why didn't they have problems when moving into these countries, while ordinary citizens encounter enormous problems trying to enter these countries even on tourist visas. Just a week before the infamous acts of terrorism in Boston, Robert Spencer began to study the way in which a hypothetical terrorist could conceivably enter legally into the United States. He says he is not arguing that this happened in the case of the Boston Bombers, but it is a fact that this route is accessible to terrorists. And it does not require any special knowledge or financial costs. Robert joins us to look at all of the latest in the terrorist ties.
