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:

Female Boy Scouts – Moonbattery

As always, read the comments!

Congrats, moonbats. The Boy Scouts were a pillar of traditional American culture at its healthiest. Their subversion is a big win for you:

Washington, D.C., marked the end — and the beginning — of an era this weekend when the Boy Scouts of America established its first all-girl troops in the nation’s capital.

All-girl Boy Scout troops. It’s a new era, all right.

“It brings unity to the female gender,” said 11-year-old Tatiana Johnson, whose shirt also made a statement, reading: “Anything boys can do girls can do better.”

At least that is probably true when it comes to reciting feminist talking points. But maybe the boys will catch up, as BSA moves away from teaching honor, godliness, and self-reliance in favor of a more politically correct orientation.

As Robert Conquest observed, any organization not explicitly and constitutionally right-wing will sooner or later become left-wing.

The Boy Scouts were right-wing in their values. But they surrendered those values when they gave in to social justice warriors pushing the  feminist,  homosexual, and transsexual agendas.

Next comes desegregation, so that the boys and girls can help each other put condoms on cucumbers or whatever other tasks liberals see fit to set them to. Countermoonbats are already abandoning the corrupted farce that was all that remained after BSA started caving to leftist bullies.

Bye BSA Hello NSA (2013)

This warning to American boy scouts was written in 2013 by a one time Canadian boy scout. The story he relates should be read by every American patriot not for his topical warning about the NSA’s spying — but for his warning how a whole civilization was subverted with ease.

Boy Scouts of America latest victim of the Socialist Takeover of America

Last week I was listening to the Denny Schaffer on WRNO in New Orleans when he was talking about the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) voting to allow “openly gay” boys to be in the Scouting movement and felt compelled to phone in. After the call, I started to formulate this article right away but in the barrage of scandals between the IRS, FBI and NSA that have unfolded since then, I became overloaded with thoughts and imagined how Hercules felt staring down the Lernaean Hydra and how every Constitution supporting patriot or Christian Organization feels, especially those specifically targeted by the alphabet soup agencies, for example Catherine Engelbert and True the Vote. I then realized that Fundamental Change had come to America, but that the formal rollout announcement had to be delayed until Caesar Obumus Disgustus was coroneted for his final term to finally pave the way and ensure victory for the Caesars that will follow him. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told Roland Martin in a February interview, “Obama has put in place the kind of database… will have everything on every individual”

It was then that I realized that the BSA issue was not about letting “Openly Gay” boys in the Scouting movement but to stop the supply of those being “Openly Scouts” from exposing Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves; rare Scouts like Bill Binney, Thomas Drake, Ed Loomis, Kirk Wiebe and now Edward Snowden who put everything they had on the line to expose the NSA.

The true goal is to eliminate the core values of Scouting (and other underpinnings of Western Society), as a preemptive strike to avoid the future exposure and cost of trying to oust them before they do damage exposing the expanding Apparatchik of the Surveillance State and Socialism in general.

May 23, 2013 – a very sad day for the BSA

From Designs on the Truth

Boy Scouts of America was incorporated more than 100 years ago; Feb. 8th, 1910. The new organization was the U.S. version of a movement begun in England by Sir Robert Baden-Powell two years earlier. Yesterday BSA’s leaders effectively voted to commit suicide: Family groups on Boy Scouts’ vote: “Expect a mass exodus” ~

Changes are in the wind for the BSA, as the organization has voted to change its century-old tradition of being morally straight. Meeting in Grapevine, Texas, Boys Scout delegates on Thursday voted – by a wide margin – in favor of a proposed policy to allow open homosexuals as members but not as Scout leaders. Homosexual activists on hand in Grapevine said that would be their next project: to pressure the organization to permit homosexual leaders.

From ~

John Stemberger, founder of OnMyHonor.Net, a group opposed to the change, said he felt “sadness and deep disappointment” that the “most influential youth program in America has turned a tragic corner. The vote today to allow open and avowed homosexuality into Scouting will completely transform it into an unprincipled and risky proposition for parents. It is truly a sad day for Scouting.”

No doubt President Obama is just thrilled by the news. After all, it’s a celebration of “diversity” (moral relativity), “tolerance,” “equality” and a whole bunch of other words that used to mean something. Tragically, the BSA decision is just another reminder of how far down the path of moral decay America has traveled.

By way of contrast, here is a former president’s reflection on what the Boy Scouts (used to) represent to America ~

Let boys be Boys Scouts, and girls be Girl Scouts

From The Union newspaper:

Terry McAteer

I am proud to be an Eagle Scout. My father was an Eagle and son, Gregory, is one as well. That is not to say, though, that I’m proud of Scouting.

The national organization has recently morphed Scouting to the point that girls can now be Boy Scouts. I realize that all boys and girls should be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent but, really, girls in Boy Scouts is over the top.

BOY Scouts No More, as Girls Officially Allowed to Join

by Susan Wright

The cultural erosion of right and wrong, and the fading of firm biological boundaries is in full swing.

We’re a society that no longer recognizes biology as a science, but rather, a loose guideline, to be implemented or ignored, as it suits our whims.

Maybe that’s why the chief scout executive of the Boy Scouts of America seems to be so excited to see traditions torn down, as his organization now welcomes girls into their ranks.

“I could not be more excited for what this means for the next generation of leaders in our nation,” Chief Scout Executive Michael B. Surbaugh told CNN on Friday.

“Through Scouts BSA, more young people than ever before — young women and men — will get to experience the benefits of camaraderie, confidence, resilience, trustworthiness, courage and kindness through a time-tested program that has been proven to build character and leadership,” Surbaugh continued.

The Boy Scouts, an organization that has been around for over 100 years, was once a group for young men to learn skills, citizenship, and self-sufficiency, in an environment that was safe and did not punish them for their maleness.

As the group now begins adding girls to that group, ages 11 to 17, at the very time when puberty is setting in and that self-conscious sense of being sized up by the opposite sex seems to encompass every waking moment, we can only wonder how soon before some young woman fires the first shot at the organization.

In this too “woke” society, just a passing glance can be used as a punishable offense.

Put pre-pubescent and hormone-driven youth together, and at some point, something will go wrong.

Unfortunately, our current state of reality prevents us from pointing out that males and females are different, for a reason.

From Rainbowalbrect:

There is an Arabic proverb that goes something like this:

Once the camel gets his nose in the tent, his body will follow.

Pointing this out might result in a lecture about the “slippery slope” fallacy.  Well, it’s not exactly a fallacy if it’s actually the strategy!  The Boy Scouts of America are a case study for this.

The BSA is over a century old, a venerable institution that has since then instructed over a hundred million youths in positive values and practical skills.  For generations, it’s been a way to connect with nature, a great social opportunity, and a place to have fun.

Things started to get shaky during the 1970s.  Scouting was becoming increasingly at odds with the zeitgeist, but I’ll spare you a rant about all that.  They tried to adapt and get hip with the times.  Unfortunately, the moves turned out to be ill-considered.  They survived by going back to the basics, and membership numbers began climbing again.

Today, they face an even greater crisis, and membership levels are below half of their former peak.  It’s a little more than just today’s kids who can’t be convinced to drag themselves away from video games.
