Liberalism Catches Up with Boy Scouts. Organization Faces Bankruptcy as Members Flee

And these reports don’t even mention the unrepayable $400,000,000 in debt secured for the boondoogle Bechtel Summit, future home to the sex-and-beer party to be called “World Jamboree 2019.”

After making controversial decisions over the past few years, the Boy Scouts of America is now facing bankruptcy and a massive decline in membership.

The organization has “hired law firm Sidley Austin for assistance in a possible chapter 11 bankruptcy filing,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Daily Caller reported that at its peak, the organization had a membership of approximately 4 million. Now that number has dropped to an estimated 2.3 million. The controversy the organization has faced in recent years and legal costs for sexual abuse lawsuits are both believed to be factors in the decline.

The trouble may have begun in 2013 when the organization decided to allow openly gay boys to join the ranks. From there, the changes continued to bring outrage across America.

In 2015, the Boy Scouts of America lifted the ban on openly gay scout leaders. In 2017, the changes continued and transgender boys were allowed to be members.

Girls were allowed in the program in 2018 — despite the fact that they have their own Girl Scouts program. The new program was given the “gender-neutral name” of Scouts BSA.

COED KILLS: Leftist Ideology and the Corruption of the American Military

by William Boyd

Liberal ideology holds the American military in a vice grip, squeezing the very lifeblood of warlike virtue from its veins. Nowhere is this spiritual corrosion more evident than in the integration of women into our armed forces. Like the Marxists before them, the contemporary Left dismisses reality out of hand. “Nature we will teach—and freedom we will reach.”

Winning wars be damned.

What follows is a compendium of my own personal observations as a Marine Corps officer, as well as an exploration of official policies that reveal the Leftist corruption of our military institutions.

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.

LGBT, Gay Feminist Left attack on masculinity is really about the Bible

Traditional Masculinity under attack: Prepare your boys

We wage war not against flesh but principalities and for decades, they have meticulously prepared an attack against Christian values. The Bible predicts a war, and it’s coming on all sides. It began with the LGBTQ and Feminist rights, under “leftist ideology.” They have succeeded so far in allowing male transgender in women’s sports, for transgender males to participate in beauty pageants and actually win, allowing boys to be members of ‘Girl’s Scout,’ and introducing “homosexual and transgender education” in elementary schools.

Masculinity is branded as “toxic” and is responsible for the many woes in American society. It exploded with Harvey Weinstein, giving way to the #MeToo movement which has evolved to attack men in general. In short, everything is blamed on tyrannical patriarchy by leftist ideology.

The gaying of America

The “gaying of America” is evident on TV, movies, and fashion. In 2018, Celine Dion launched Nununu, a clothing line where boys can wear girl’s clothes and vice-versa, under the pretense of fluidity and anti-discrimination. Some saw it as demonic and exorcist. Laws are being placed to remove gender pronouns and boys are in danger of growing up in an environment where women and transgender not only dominate the media but dictates how boys should be boys.

The emasculation of men

In 2019, we see a new movement rising and its the emasculation of men, under the pretense of a social revolution against tyrannical patriarchy. Consider the latest American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines on “traditional masculinity.” They suggest parent should not expose “traditional masculinity” among boys. “Stoicism, competitiveness, dominance, and aggression is harmful,” according to APA guidelines. Thus the iconic images of Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) or Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) are deemed inappropriate for boys growing into men.

“Clinicians are encouraged by APA to recognize their own biases when dealing with males,” said Ronald F. Levant, EdD, University of Akron. But here is the thing, clinician Jordan Peterson whose sudden rise to fame because of his lectures on Youtube on political correctness is shaking up how groups like APA make assumptions on feminism and sexuality. Although Peterson doesn’t say he is a Christian, his views on masculinity support the Biblical tradition on how boys to men should behave. The APA, the LGBTQ, and Feminists say the opposite.

LGBT and gay feminists groups who are up and arms against traditional masculinity have an “insane narrative generated by a tiny minority of people,” says Peterson. Yet people listen because of the great deception (2 Peter 2:1–3). We should not wonder that towards the last days, the world will be introduced to demonic preaching hidden in intellectual fallacies (2 Timothy 3).

Why is this happening now?

For thousands of years, men have led to the rise and fall of civilization. Leaders in the Bible were mostly men and homosexuals were outcast. Women (or gays) were not given equal rights to men. Thus instilled tyrannical patriarchy to which the LGBTQ and Feminist demand change. Most societies are partly to blame because it has allowed men to treat women with disrespect.

Warning to Christian parents

The greater reason why this is happening is because traditional masculinity is difficult to control in tyrannical socialism. Socialism wants to promote equality and it is rooted with Lucifer, who first claimed equality with God. These are all part of the bigger agenda of Satan. A spiritual war is coming, prepare your children who will face the battle soon.

What parents can do

“Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue,” says John Eldridge, author of Wild at Heart. Young boys are naturally inclined to wanting a mission. As a young adult, he needs to know his identity as a man. “Only then is he fit for a woman, for only then does he have something to invite her into,” said Eldridge.

Every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.

Parents must protect their boys into growing up the way males are supposed to be – to be strong, lead, and respect the women, the helpless, and the innocent. It begins by having a strong and responsible Father, who is not only a good provider but someone who leads by example. Share these Bible verses with your boys: 1 Peter 3:71 Timothy 3:1-71 Peter 2:17Philippians 2:31 Timothy 5:1-2;

Boy Scouts No More // WBAP’s Chris Krok

Here’s a radio talkshow segment for your viewing pleasure. He speaks for most of us scouting fathers. From station WBAP 820’s webpage:

Scouts BSA inducted the first all girl troops into the organization, and Chris Krok isn’t mad, just disappointed.

Whither the Boy Scouts of America?

Norm Silber speaks for many of us. Perhaps the majority. For those of us with sons who are active boy scouts, it’s not so simple. You see, B.S.A. Inc damnably leveraged our boys’ love of scouting in a way that we would take the heat for pulling them out of boy scouts. Mike Surbaugh, Rex Tillerson, Randall Stephenson weaponize boy scouting . . . but dad is the bad guy.

Robert Gates must have been one heluva spook in his day. Not only does he lie with true talent, his is an evil genius.

Dear God in heaven, administer thy justice upon this land and its inhabitants according to they will. Amen.

A major goal of the left and its fellow-travelling PC Police seems to be the demolition of most of the traditional pillars of American culture and family values.  The changes in the Boy Scouts of America, which used to be thought of as being like motherhood and apple pie, can serve as an excellent example of their recent successes in doing so.

In 2017, the organization then called the “Boy Scouts of America,” which had been formed in 1910 under a federal charter, adopted a major change in its policy regarding membership, a full 2 years before its most recent change in membership and the formal change of its name to “Scouts,” to recognize that it was starting to recruit young girls into its programs.
