Chuck, 72, penned an article for AmmoLand.com
titled "Is Obama Creating a Pro-Gay Boy Scouts of America?" The article attacks James Turley, a high ranking BSA official who recently announced his plan to "seek a change" to a Boy Scouts policy banning gay Scouts and gay Scout leaders. Chuck accuses him of buttering up the pro-gay Obama administration, citing too many 'co-incidences' for Turley not to be cosying up to the Obama administration in wanting to change the BSA policy.In the article, Chuck talks about the Boy Scouts as symbolising the best of America, with the insinuation that gays don't.This is not the first openly anti-gay stance from Chuck Norris who last year attacked public schools in the US, labelling them "Progressive Indoctrination Camps" that encouraged students to "freely experiment sexually, [and] forcefully defend issues such as abortion and homosexuality".Norris was made famous in the 90's with his TV show, 'Walker Texas Ranger' which ran for eight seasons.
