Over the years, the Boy Scouts of America has been making steps to become more “accepting” and “inclusive” — at the risk to its traditional values.
In 2013, the organization allowed members to identify as gay, then a couple of years later, the group welcomed gay leaders. And beginning this year, “transgender” scouts — girls who pretend they’re boys — were allowed to join the once all-male group.
Not everyone has viewed these changes as positive. A new group that recognizes the traditional values that the Boys Scouts left behind is gaining popularity because of the BSA’s shift to serve a liberal agenda.
Trail Life USA, which focuses on “traditional Christian values” already has more than 20,000 members across the country.
