What the heck? | Words for the Day

A friend of mine, John Stemberger, sent me this announcement yesterday:
Yesterday the Associated Press reported that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced it is changing its name by removing the word “boy” and launching a new campaign called the “Scout Me In” to “promote inclusiveness.”
The decision comes after the BSA decided to admit openly gay identified boys and adults, transgendered boys and most recently girls into the historically male organization. The new name will be “Scouts BSA.” New logos now include images of both a boy and a girl.
In 2013, immediately after the BSA voted to admit boys acting out as homosexual, the Florida Family Policy Council was instrumental in leading the launch of Trail Life USA, a national Christian scouting movement.
Florida Family Policy Council President John Stemberger who also serves as Chairman of the Board of Trail Life USA released the following statement today:
“Today’s decision to change the name of the Boy Scouts of America by the dropping the male designation ‘boy’ in its name signals the final death of an American institution. It’s simply stunning that a leading youth organization which parents have entrusted the protection of their children with for over a century has now opted to again appease LGBT activists rather than follow clear, common-sense best practices for child protection and do what’s truly in the best interest of the boys. The stated mission of the BSA which is rarely referenced by the organization today is to ‘prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices . . . ‘ What are we teaching boys about being ‘brave’ from the Scout Law when the adults in the program don’t even have the courage to do what is right and stand for the ‘timeless values’ the program was founded on over a century ago? Having fully joined the sexual revolution, the BSA has become a merely a youth group with neckerchiefs further promoting moral and gender confusion in society.”
Trail Life USA has over 739 local troops chartered with various churches and school organizations in 48 states. For more information on joining a troop or starting a troop with this Christ-centered, boy focused, high adventure program see www.TrailLifeUSA.org. More on the history of the launch of Trail Life USA can be found at
The Florida Family Policy Council is one of 40 other state-based policy organizations associated with Focus on the Family and the Family Policy Alliance.

Well at least there is a choice with Trail Life USA, but where does that leave all those millions of Boy Scouts who joined before the Progressives took over, especially those who earned the coveted eagle scout designation?
Why can’t the boy scouts have an organization for boys? Girl scouts have one for girls. Is this an effort to accommodate transgender kids or indoctrinate them to homosexuality through homosexual scout leaders?
One thing you can say about the LGBTQ community is that they are persistent, and they leave no stone untouched. According to the CDC’s National Health Institute based on their 2013 NHIS data, 96.6% of adults identified as straight, 1.6% identified as gay or lesbian, and 0.7% identified as bisexual. The remaining 1.1% of adults identified as ‘‘something else,’’ stated ‘‘I don’t know the answer,’’ or refused to provide an answer.
What the heck? Can anyone view any form of media whatsoever without seeing their agenda? They have succeeded in convincing society to accept their behavior as being normal far beyond their own expectations. Doesn’t it seem strange that only 3.4% of the population could command so much attention. Do the 96.6% of the remaining population really understand the significance of this?
Wow! Too bad Christians aren’t working as hard to promote the Gospel. Just imagine the harvest that would bring.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
