Ho, John, et al---
> Scouts should boycott Elton John
> Sometime within the last week Elton john held a benefit concert in
England. The concert was held to benefit a Gay rights group. While I don't
approve of this lifestyle, I don't have a major problem with this....SO
> Elton had dancers on stage with him, male dancers, of the "Chippendale"
variety. still no major problem here.... They were in uniform, a common
practice I hear for male dancers....and I still don't have a big problem
here, but this is where it gets worse...
> The dancers had on Cub Scout uniforms! Yes Cub Scout. Not Boy Scout, Not
police, Firemen, Army, Navy, Marine, or anything resembling adult, but Cub
Scout uniforms, which are worn by boys under the age of 10.
> This was at best a major lapse of judgement by Elton and the producer of
the show, and at worst......????? Well you write your own worst scenario.
Agreed. It was a very STUPID thing for Elton John to do. BTW, check out
the Elton John Discussion Forum @ EltonJohn.com . This even has his fans in
an uproar! Most are demanding an apology, some are saying he's trying to
become more like Boy George, some say it's a homage to the Benny Hill Show..
Scouting is a way of life.......ooooooooommmmm (repeat as needed)
