OFF GRID THEOLOGY: Boy Scouts Self-Castration Leaves Girl Scouts Wondering

Bill Heid Current Events

For over 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America have used the name Boy Scouts. Seems to make sense, right? With girls set to become Boy Scouts soon, all that has to change.

The Boy Scouts organization announced a new name for the “Boy Scouts” yesterday: Scouts BSA.

Head scout, Mike Surbaugh, said it was “incredibly fun” coming up with the new name.

“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” he said. “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

According to “Glass Door”, Surbaugh is the 5th highest paid charity officer in the country making over $1.5 million per year.

CRISIS MAGAZINE: Something Rotten in the Boy Scouts


There’s deception going on in the front office of the Boy Scouts. It includes deliberate misrepresentation of polling data, and threats to pack an upcoming meeting with anonymous and unqualified voters so that the Boy Scout policy on homosexuality gets forced on the majority of Scouts and parents who don’t want it.

The Boy Scouts are considering changing their policy of not allowing open homosexuality in either their Scout or leadership ranks. The policy has placed the Boy Scouts in the buzz saw of the zeitgeist and up until recently they have resisted. There are some weak-kneed leaders who want to throw over the policy and appear willing to violate the Scout Law to do it.

The Scout front office released the result of a national survey and “listening” process that purported to show that the Scouts—boys, parents, leaders and donors—favor a change in the policy. The Boy Scouts say the process reveals great changes in attitudes and that a majority of those at all levels of Scouting “tend to agree that youth should not be denied the benefits of Scouting.”

This was dutifully and even triumphantly reported in the mainstream press.  The only problem is the news reports were wrong. And the news reports were wrong because the Boy Scouts misrepresented the results. One close observer of the Boy Scouts calls the poll “a pack of lies.”

Do Scouting parents want to overhaul the policy and allow open homosexuality in the Scouts? The Executive Summary of the Poll says, “yes”, but the numbers say “no.” Fifty percent of Cub Scout parents support the current restrictive policy while 45% oppose it. A whopping 61% of Boy Scout parents support the current policy.

FABIUS MAXIMUS: Why Boy Scouts went co-ed. What America will lose.


Why Boy Scouts went co-ed. What America will lose.

 

Summary: Boy Scouts are in the news again. As usual, journalists get the story wrong. The real story shows the trends that are molding a new America.

"Scout me in" advertisement

Membership in Boy Scouts of America peaked in 1973 at 4.8 million. Decades of relentless mismanagement by its HQ in Irving, Texas, reduced that to 2.5 billion by ~2012, and to 2.3 million “members” (boys and girls) today. The 437 thousand Mormon boys are roughly one-fifth of BSA membership, and they’re leaving – following BSA’s decision to admit gays and transgendered Scouts. This might leave BSA too small to fund its infrastructure, leading to a death spiral.

The response of the BSA leadership was genius. Boy Scouts’ primary asset is the reputation of Eagle Scouts. Competition for the few slots at prestigious colleges is fierce, and the words “Eagle Scout” on an application can help. Scout troops have increasingly become “Eagle factories.” Parents complete the boys’ projects. Outdoor treks are done only as needed. The parents run troops like schools; boys grudgingly cooperate, and bounce out after getting the little eagle pin — depriving Troops of what should be their Scout leaders. This is antimatter to Scout Spirit.

AMERICAN THINKER: Goodbye, ‘Boy Scouts’; hello, ‘Scouts BSA’

Goodbye, ‘Boy Scouts’; hello, ‘Scouts BSA’

Were you ever a Boy Scout?  Why, you misogynistic creep!  The very name drips of anti-women venom.

Never mind.  The Boy Scouts of America have changed all that.  From now on, the iconic name “Boy Scouts” will be replaced with the more gender-neutral “Scouts BSA.”

Associated Press:

Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said many possibilities were considered during lengthy and “incredibly fun” deliberations before the new name was chosen.

“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” he said.  “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

I’m sure it was a lot of fun destroying an institution set up to help boys become men – sort of like pulling the wings off flies, only not as messy.

DAILY SIGNAL: Boy Scouts Nix the Word ‘Boy,’ Showing They No Longer Believe in Masculinity

On Wednesday, the Boy Scouts announced that their signature program known simply as the “Boy Scouts”—which serves ages 10 to 17—will no longer bear the word “boy.” Beginning in February, it will be known as Scouts BSA.

This change comes only months after the Boy Scouts announced girls would be allowed into the program. Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said they wanted to choose a name that “evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward.”

This name change, and the “inclusive” policy change that preceded it, indicates a fundamental shift away from the mindset that first gave rise to the Boy Scouts in the early 20th century. One can’t shake the impression that if the Boy Scouts were starting from scratch, they’d ditch even the acronym “BSA” and go completely gender-neutral.

It’s worth probing that fundamental shift in mindset.

CARLSON & KIRK: Why The Left Hates The Boy Scouts

Tucker Carlson And Charlie Kirk: Why The Left Hates The Boy Scouts

ByRobert Kraychik

October 12, 2017

The Left’s contempt for the Boy Scouts of America is rooted in the boys’ organization’s patriotism and wholesomeness, asserted both Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson and Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk on Wednesday.

“Even before the current gender battles, which are obviously part of this, the Left disliked the Boy Scouts,” said Kirk, “and I always thought it was because the Boy Scouts are the two things they hate; they’re wholesome and they’re non-ironic.”

Kirk traced the hatred for the Boy Scouts back to the Left’s Marxist roots, which pit them against “traditional values.”

“What the Left is trying to accomplish is a deconstruction of traditional values, and this goes back to the 1920s and 1930s, and this is what the Marxists have been so effective in doing in overtaking our universities, and this is just another attack on a fundamental institution that has proven to be successful over the last 100 years in turning boys into men,” he said, adding, “and men do matter, but the Left does not think so.”

“As an Eagle Scout, I’m disgusted and disappointed to see this,” said Kirk in reference to the Boy Scouts’ decision to begin admitting girls.

Partial transcript below.

CARLSON: But even before the current gender battles, which are obviously part of this, the left disliked the Boy Scouts, and I always thought it was because the Boy Scouts are the two things they hate; they’re wholesome and they’re non-ironic. It’s the same reason the left always hates the Mormons, there’s no ironic inflection, they’re just sincere. Why does that drive liberals so crazy?

KIRK: Well, it also goes to show why they’re supporting these national anthem protests [at the NFL]. They hate patriotism, and there’s no group more than the Boy Scouts that have defended the flag or have engendered or fostered patriotism amongst our youth, and one of the key components of being a Boy Scout is understanding the flag code, and being involved in your local community, and understanding what it means to actually serve your country.

What the Left is trying to accomplish is a deconstruction of traditional values, and this goes back to the 1920s and 1930s, and this is what the Marxists have been so effective in doing in overtaking our universities, and this is just another attack on a fundamental institution that has proven to be successful over the last 100 years in turning boys into men; and men do matter, but the Left does not think so.

CARLSON: I absolutely agree with that.

ACCURACY IN MEDIA: After Conquering The Boy Scouts, What’s Next?


After Conquering The Boy Scouts, What’s Next?

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

The epitaph of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is being written by cowardly corporations, spineless politicians, politically correct adults afraid to say anything, and of course the liberal media. The Washington Post and The New York Times have been on the front lines of the “progressive” movement that now seeks to abolish the differences between the sexes by using our children as guinea pigs in the latest version of their sick social experiment.

The BSA is near death, thanks to the most recent decision by the BSA leadership to admit girls who want to be boys. This lunacy is endorsed by the Post, which praises the BSA for adapting “in an era of rapid culture change.” In an editorial, “Welcoming Transgender Boy Scouts,” the Times declares that “The Boy Scouts are recognizing transgender boys for what they genuinely are: boys.” This is nonsense, of course. They are not boys. They are girls.
