Boy Scouts Are Just Scouts Now, and That’s Making Girl Scouts Mad

As usual, no one gives a damn that boys’ literal identity was appropriated from them. Strike that – expropriated in the name of communism.

From Bloomberg:

Boy Scouts Are Just Scouts Now, and That’s Making Girl Scouts Mad

The 100-year-old organizations are prepared to take their battle over self-identity to court.

One evening in early February, in the back room of a small Lutheran church in Blacksburg, Va., seven girls joined the Boy Scouts. They stood in front of an American flag, wearing the same khaki shirts and bandanna neckties as the 19 boys there with them. Together they recited the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the traditional Boy Scout oath. As historic moments go, it was a quiet one.

Over the next hour, members of Blacksburg’s Troop 158 discussed a coming campout and held a physical fitness challenge that amounted to running a few laps around the church parking lot. The girls demonstrated the sled they intended to use in a multitroop race, while some boys debated whether an assault rifle would make a good weapon during a zombie apocalypse. (The consensus was yes.) “I like Boy Scouts so far,” said Amalie, who’s 13, when the meeting was over. “Sorry, I mean Scouts. We’re supposed to say the new name now.”

A week earlier, the Boy Scouts of America—the national organization that oversees various outdoors programs for about 2 million children, including Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing—had changed the name of its original, 109-year-old program to Scouts BSA. That made Amalie one of its first girl scouts. Not to be confused, of course, with the Girl Scouts—though Amalie said she’s one of those, too.

The process by which a male-only centenarian institution transforms itself into an inclusive, co-ed brand would be complicated under any circumstances, but for the Scouts it’s been doubly so. For decades—in fact, as recently as 2015—the organization had argued, in interviews and in court, that scouting was only for boys. And a lot of people associated with the Boy Scouts still agree with that.

“ ‘This is crazy! This is what’s wrong with America! Girls in the Boy Scouts? I mean for crying out loud!’ ” says Michael Surbaugh, the group’s chief scout executive, imitating angry emails and tweets he’s received. Conservative news outlets have run articles with headlines such as “The Boy Scouts Admit Girls, Failure” (Weekly Standard) and “Girls in Boy Scouts Is Bad for Everyone” (Washington Examiner). But strangely, the fieriest reaction has come from the group most famous for supporting young girls: Girl Scouts of the United States of America.

#MeToo consequences: Wall Street purging women to avoid being accused of inappropriate behavior

This is already happening to the boy scout movement. It will get much worse.


#MeToo consequences: Wall Street purging women to avoid being accused of inappropriate behavior

One misunderstanding is all it takes for a man’s career and potentially his life, to be flushed down the drain. There is no arguing that, especially when the overwhelming message from the left-wing is that all men are guilty. And even if they are proven innocent, they are still guilty. After a rape or assault accusation, a man’s innocence can be only the product of misogyny — at least, according to the radical Left. The immense media scrutiny of Brett Kavanaugh is surely evidence of that.

#MeToo movement is toxic

Now, the liberal media is shaming men for being overly cautious in their interactions with women. What, exactly, did they think would happen? The #MeToo movement has put any and all “questionable” interactions between men and women on display and open to public criticism. More, the #MeToo movement suggests that all men are inherently guilty, and that no woman would ever lie about an assault.

It is no wonder that men are now being more cautious around women: One wrong move, and their lives are totally over. The Left has consistently sent the message that women must be believed under any and all circumstances — even after it turns out some of these “victims” are lying.

No one is saying rape and assaults never happen. But the presumption being pushed by #MeToo and similar ideologies is that all men are guilty. To even debate a man’s innocence in the implication of a rape or assault, is now considered “unacceptable.” It makes you a “rape apologist” or a “misogynist” if you even dare to suggest that a man is not guilty — even with hard evidence to support his innocence. Again, the plight Brett Kavanaugh comes to mind: Every “witness” named by his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, has said that the incident she described never happened — and yet, liberals are coming out of the woodwork to show their “support” for Ford.

One Democrat senator, Mazie Hirono, has even stated Kavanaugh “doesn’t have the same presumption of innocence as anyone else because of his ideology,” and that he is “more likely to be guilty because he’s a conservative,” according to a report from National Review. How’s that for equality?

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.

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.

BY / 4 FEBRUARY 2019

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.

Federalist: What’s Wrong With The Boy Scouts Goes Deeper Than Social Issues Into Cowardice

A program that once embraced difficulty—even danger—has traded its soul for happy helicopter parents and freedom from liability.

What’s wrong with the Boy Scouts?

As an Eagle Scout, the son of an Eagle Scout, and a professional with the Boy Scouts of America for about eight years, I have heard this question a lot this last week. The Boy Scouts of America just announced that they would allow girls to join their program, even earn the rank of Eagle Scout, and many people are confused. After all, it seems patently absurd that a program built for boys, which actually has the word “boy” in its name, would suddenly be appropriate for girls too.

So what is wrong with the Boy Scouts? I do not think, at its root, it is simply that the Boy Scouts capitulated on a whole range of controversial social issues—though they surely have changed with popular culture. I think these changes are actually symptomatic of a deeper problem within the BSA. To put it simply: the Boy Scouts are too safe.

Essentially, the Boy Scouts of America has abandoned its original insight into the soul of boys: They are natural warriors. Don’t get me wrong, I know there are girls out there who love to play cops and robbers, and boys out there who love playing with dolls. But we all know that, in general, whether it is biologically or culturally transmitted, boys like to play at war and girls don’t. This central vision into the nature of boys was what sparked the Scouting movement.
