A lot of Chuck Norris fans have come to the sad realisation that he's not as kickass-awesome as they all thought now that he's launched a campaign to keep gay people out of the US Boy Scouts.

The 72-year-old action star has written an article for AmmoLand.com (yes, that's a website about ammunition) titled, "Is Obama Creating a Pro-Gay Boy Scouts of America?"

Chuck, a staunch Republican, is opposing a movement to overturn the century-old rule that bans gay scouts and scout leaders from joining the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

And he reckons it's all "pro-gay" Barack Obama's fault.

Chuck even goes so far as to raise a really inappropriate question about the president's encounter with a group of Boy Scouts "behind closed doors":

"Is it a coincidence, too, that on March 3, 2009, Obama became the honorary president of the BSA — a position proudly and publicly held and highlighted by all presidents since President William Howard Taft in 1910 — but that Obama’s induction was held behind closed doors in the Oval Office with seven or so Boy Scouts present and absolutely nothing noted in the White House daily briefing or any other official communication?"

Sigh. We'll never appreciate a Chuck Norris movie (or meme) again.
