Chuck Norris Wants To Keep The Boy Scouts Ban On Gay People

Washed-up action star/GOP shill/plastic-surgery nightmare Chuck Norris must think the Boy Scouts are a bunch of pansies. Why else does he think they need to be protected against scary old gay people?

In a recent post on the gun-nut site Ammoland, Norris,22, suggested that James Turley, a high-raking BSA official and CEO of Ernst & Young, was encouraging the Scouts to “seek a change” in its gay ban because of Turley’s close ties to Barack Obama‘s “pro-gay” administration.

Is it a coincidence that in the same few weeks when Turley turned on the BSA with his pro-gay stance, Obama turned on the U.S. military and sent down a decree that the service branches must celebrate “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month”?

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?

Is it a coincidence that Turley just announced his resignation as CEO of Ernst & Young (effective June 2013) and that he now is 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?

These Turley-Obama cords, connections and correlations are only the tip of the iceberg.

Norris goes on to bemoan Obama’s distancing himself from the Scouts, a group Norris calls ” as integral a part of American life and culture as hot dogs, baseball and Grandma’s apple pie.”

And semi-automatic rifles, right Chuck?

Why would it be strange for a high-profile American to align himself with a President whose values he’s shares? Was Turley a rabid homophobe his whole life and then did a shocking turnaround when Obama invited him to dinner?

We do wonder, though, if the Boy Scouts think its wise to align themselves with Chuck Norris—sorry, Carlos Ray Norris—who admitted in 2004 to fathering a daughter from an extramarital affair and then not meeting her until ten years after she first contacted him.

Doesn’t sound very “morally straight” to us.

      Tsk, tsk, Norris, that extramarital affair you had produced a child. Whatever happened to those good old fashioned sanctity of marriage values you’ve been harping on about? NOM will be very upset with you but they’ll forgive you after you send them a nice fat check and all will be well again. Must be fun being a bigot.

      No gay person should ever work with him again. Nor, should they wait on him in restaurants, ring him up at cash registers, check-him in to hotels, design the clothes he wears, write stories about him, interview him, sell him cars, sell him homes, design his exercise equipment, make and bake the food he eats…gay people should refuse all service to Chuck Norris.

      @Baba Booey: You are a sad little man. Now if he had that attitude toward you just because you’re gay, I’m sure you’d like it very much.

      He has his opinion and he’s entitled to it. You should practice some of that tolerance you keep demanding from others and get over it.

      Is it a coincidence that Carlos is so homophobic and so out of work?

      Seriously, unless this guy wants to keep doing fitness videos and advertising pointless machines, he might do well to learn that Hollywood highly markets to gay people and that means that good ole’ Carlos just is not marketable.

      I personally cringe every time I hear a Total Gym advertisement. I can not believe Total Gym is so stupid as to have him as their spokesperson when gay people buy much more work out equipment than straights do.

      @Colin: He is just trying to respect his opinion. Since Norris so obviously hates the gays the gays should do him a favor and avoid him at all costs. That simply means that Norris will be less aggravated because he does not have to deal with people he hates.

      You homophobes are all alike, you hate us behind our backs or maybe even publicly, but the second you want something from us you seem to kiss our asses just like everyone else.

      Well, since he doesn’t seem to be relavent at this time, he has to say something to keep his face in the media for hopes to keep up in the world in which he lives in. My grandmother used to say, “even negative attention is attention none the less”. He doesn’t care about the bad press as it still gives him press. I have now wasted too much time on him and that just gives him more attention.

      Chuck Norris is 72 and what a fool. You’d think he’d keep his mouth shut at this stage of the game. He just lost half of America, many of which liked the guy a lot. He just destroyed his image for many and just shot himself in both feet with his Hollywood guns. I wonder what Total Gym has in store for their next board meeting with that business bomb stinking up tbeir product. Fool, Total fool.

      @iDavid: It has been common knowledge for decades that Chuck Norris is a right wing homophobe. If half of America did not leave him yet, this sure the hell will not do it.

      This is the man that backed GWB in both 2000 and 2004 as well as JMC in 2008. He most likely will get very involved in the MR campaign if he is allowed to do so.

      @Colin: “Now if he had that attitude toward you just because you’re gay, I’m sure you’d like it very much.”

      Of course. We’d probably do your job better than you anyway. :)

      “He has his opinion and he’s entitled to it. You should practice some of that tolerance you keep demanding from others and get over it.”

      LOL. Surely you realize that this line of yours, which has been used so many times, does not get any less laughable and stupid every time it is being used. So, basically, what you are saying is that @Baba Booey does not have the right to share his opinion of Chuck because Chuck is entitled to give his opinion? LOL. Your stupidity is hilarious. Thank you for that. I hadn’t had a good laugh in hours.

      @Colin: Screw you and your ridiculous scolding of that man. Why in the hell should we tolerate people who don’t tolerate us? It is time that we start standing up for ourselves in individual ways. If the same thing was being said about black people being unfit to be members of the Boy Scouts or that anyone supporting us was clearly just a shill for the government, guess what, I wouldn’t work with or serve them, either.

      Don’t be an idiot and think that showing the bigots compassion makes them respect you any more than I do for suggesting it in the first place.

      I think the “22” refers to how many years its been since one of his movies even made any money at the box office

      Whenever Sean Penn or Susan Sarandon or Cher comments on political and cultural issues, right wingers scream “Why the fuck should we CARE what celebrities think!!!!!!?”

      @Belize: You obviously have trouble with reading comprehension. I was addressing the reaction and extremism of that poster to Chuck’s comment. I didn’t say anything about Baba not having the right to share his opinion. Good job at distorting my comment to entertain yourself. You’re clearly good at that.

      @Howard: What the hell are you talking about? I didn’t say anything about showing him compassion. I swear, when most of you people write, you really don’t have a flippin clue what you’re talking about.

      No. 28 · Jay wrote, “Is it true he’s gay and closeted?”

      No. It’s just that the movie studios should have but him in the closet. BTW, according to the Wikipedia article about him, he was born in 1940. He’s some sort of “outspoken” Christian – has a WorldNetDaily column and believes in creationism. He made up his own “martial art”, based primarily on another one, but containing all the stuff he knows. It’s an effective way of being an expert on something!

      I grew up in a working class neighborhood outside Phila in the 1950’s and boys who were in the Boy Scouts were considered dorks.
