No More Boy Scout Religion


From a sermon preached at Christ Church, Lakeland Fl:



The Boy Scouts of America was one of the most cherished organizations in the American culture. It seemed to sum what “a good American” was all about, and it captured the general outlook of our national character. It is what many people think of when they think of how to “just be a good person.” But, sadly, what was once only a rhetorical saying now has a new and literal meaning– there are no more Boy Scouts.

What killed the Boy Scouts was sex. They thought–wrongly–that everyone knew what sex was and how to use it responsibly. But this has been proven false. Three years ago, the Boy Scouts began to revise their position on human sexuality, eventually coming to admit homosexual members and even scout leaders. You can read about how that came about here. This week the Boy Scouts announced that they will allow transgender members. This has left many Americans who traditionally supported the Scouts for reasons of moral and spiritual formation dismayed and depressed. On a surface level it all seems rather absurd. After all, this is the BOY Scouts we are talking about. If boys no longer have to be boys, what’s left? But on a deeper level, what this reveals is that the Boy Scouts do not actually have a shared moral and spiritual foundation. Whatever they thought they once had is now definitively gone.

In Defense Of ‘Don’t Punch Right’ // le Château


Le Château’s tagline is “Where Pretty Lies Perish” so you might expect red pill, even black pill truth bombs when visiting. The shame of it is today’s man must be instructed in remedial eternal truth:

The Left only has to fight one enemy: straight White men missing the grovel gene.


February 9, 2019 by CH

Astute. Porter has made the best defense of “don’t punch right” I’ve yet read.

A reader adds,

It’s because the Left has successfully established a framework in which left is moral and right is immoral. Thus, the extreme left is at worst impractical, but the extreme right is barbarous evil.

‘Don’t Punch Right’ doesn’t mean you lovingly embrace beady-eyed social rejects with swastika tattoos and defend them at all costs from attack. It means you do what the Left does with their sanpaku-eyed social rejects with neckbeards and post-op vaginas: you don’t join your enemies to attack them. Instead, like the Left, you change the subject, mildly defend them on abstract principles of “giving a voice to all”, or mildly rebuke them for the minor sin of “letting their justified anger get the better of them”. If all else fails, you ignore them or pretend you don’t know what’s going on and dodge any questions about them.

This is something I believe the normally smart blokes at MPC lost sight of.

Scoutmaster wins settlement over “Christian roots” letter – UK


You knew this was coming, didn’t you?

From The Christian Concern:


You may remember the story of Brian Walker, a veteran scout leader who was barred from the Scouts after sending a letter to Scouting magazine, challenging the promotion of Islam and LGBT events in the magazine.

After failing in an attempt to have Brian’s legal challenge struck off, the Scout Association has now agreed to settle his claim. The Christian Legal Centre supported Brian as he challenged his removal.

Expelled for concerns about drift from Christian roots

Having dedicated 52 years of his life to the Scout movement, Brian was barred from membership for writing to the movement’s official magazine expressing his concern that the charity was moving away from its Christian roots.

2015: Why Boy Scouts stance on gay leaders leaves it in limbo – CSM


Learn your history if you want to avoid the same failure next time around.

From the Christian Science Monitor:


The Boy Scouts have tried to strike a compromise on gay rights, but the continuing uproar from both sides shows how difficult that is.

The Boy Scouts of America were expected Monday to lift the group’s controversial ban on gay adult leaders, citing a changed legal landscape that no longer allows for such a ban.

At the same time, the group reaffirmed the right of local faith-based groups, many of which sponsor Boy Scout troops, to continue to set their own hiring policies.

It’s a compromise that, in the end, is likely to anger people on both sides of the gay-rights issue and that points to the difficulty for an organization like the Boy Scouts – which is increasingly tied with religious groups – that may try to stake out a middle ground on such a fraught issue.

“You’ve got a highly divided organization,” says Richard Ellis, a political science professor at Willamette University in Salem, Ore., and the author of “Judging the Boy Scouts of America.” “Now it’s not clear that even this solution, which is an attempt to get the [gay rights] issue out of the way, can do it, because nobody is happy with it.”

In some ways, the Boy Scouts are emblematic of the struggle that much of conservative America, and particularly conservative religious organizations, have had as they try to remain relevant, and compliant with the law, in a rapidly shifting legal landscape.

American Heritage Girls Responds to BSA’s Co-Ed Program Acceptance


CINCINNATI,  Feb. 1, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ — The Issue: Boy Scouts of America-now coined Scouts BSA- officially announced its decision to welcome both boys and girls into its program on Feb. 1, 2019. While co-ed troops are not part of this change, the once boys-exclusive organization will now allow girls to participate in the Boy Scouts curriculum.

Amid this announcement, American Heritage Girls would like to reiterate its belief in the benefits of a Christ-centered, girl-focused, outdoor-adventure program that is specifically tailored to the needs of a girl. Founded over two decades ago by Executive Director and Founder, Patti Garibay, AHG remains committed to celebrating a girl’s journey of discovery of who she is and whose she is in Christ today and in the future. AHG believes that allowing girls to grow physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually with other girls is key to building women of integrity.


Learn more about AHG and the benefits of a Christ-centered, outdoor adventure and girl-focused program through a conversation with AHG Executive Director and Founder, Patti Garibay.

When: Patti is available for interviews. Please contact AHG Media Relations Specialist Megan Rose to make arrangements.

Lolz at The Boy Scouts


From Armchair Anthropologist:

The Boy Scouts of America recently announced that girls can join and earn all the conventional ranks, though the troops will be segregated by sex. Naturally the Girl Scouts USA organization is angry and has sued over a name change.

Do I weep over the loss of a proud American tradition such as the Scouts? Well yes, but more than that I’m laughing.

This is the inevitable path of feminism. Women hate on the Boy Scouts because it’s, by definition, patriarchal. So they decide to include girls so that everyone can benefit. Same as universities and golf clubs. And then the women are even more angry because women are never happy. Now the Boy Scouts are infringing on the Girl Scouts’s own tradition turf.

Serves the BSA right for catering to the progressives. They caved on the gay ban, and now they’re finding out what happens when you give in to progressivism. Traditional organizations should be traditional.

You cannot appease the progressives. The best thing to do is just ignore them and wait a few months for them to attack another organization. It certainly worked for the Washington Redskins.

Both scout organizations are declining, and both have embraced progressivism. Just as no secular country has ever sustained a birth rate, and just as HuffPo, BuzzFeed and Vice are making major layoffs, so too will the classic scouting organizations lose members as they focus on godless propaganda instead of wilderness survival skills.

Mormons Bail on Boy Scouts – Moonbattery


Here’s another blog post from Moonbattery:


The Boy Scouts have shown us that once you let moonbattery’s nose into the tent, you will soon find yourself outside on the sand. Less than a week after they changed their name to Scouts BSA to be more “inclusive,” we begin to see what that entails. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is bailing out:

The church announced Tuesday evening that it will sever ties with the organization, effective Dec. 31, 2019, according to a news release.

This ends a partnership that has lasted for over a century. It constitutes an oversized shovelful of dirt on the coffin of the Boy Scouts.

The LDS Church is the biggest participant in American Scouting, with approximately 425,000 LDS youths in Cub and Boy Scout programs. Mormons account for about 19 percent of the BSA’s membership, which totals about 2.3 million, according to the Boy Scouts.

The LDS Church will be starting its own youth program, which will be grounded in the healthy values that characterized the Boy Scouts before they allowed social justice warriors to bully them into incrementally embracing the liberal agenda.

The fissure began when the Boy Scouts started knuckling under to LGBT militants:
