A group will rally in Lubbock to encourage the South Plains Council of the Boy Scouts of America to vote against allowing open homosexuals to join the scouts.

A press release from the “Lubbock On My Honor” organization says the rally is to ensure that the voting delegates from the South Plains Council will reflect what they say is the super-majority voice of the South Plains Council Scouter.

The South Plains Council of the Boy Scouts of America has not disclosed how their national delegate votes will be cast at the group’s upcoming meeting on May 23rd in Grapevine, Texas.

The press release states “A group of concerned Lubbock citizens and Scout families will rally on Friday to encourage the community to reach out to the South Plains Council of Boy Scouts of America and urge them to vote against lifting the ban that will allow open homosexuals to join Boy Scouts.”

The Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Committee has asked their 1,400 voting members to vote on a proposed resolution that would remove the restriction denying membership to youth that are openly homosexual.

The rally will be held at the South Plains Council Boy Scouts office at 30 Briercroft Office Park just off of Avenue Q. The rally will begin at noon on Friday, May 17th.

Representatives from the South Plains Council will account for three of the 1,400 votes at the meeting.
