The American Legion knows B.S.A. Inc is pozzed. This is B.S.A.’s attempt to justify its betrayal of America to the very men that sacrifice life and limb for her.
Notice B.S.A. flak made a big deal about citizenship. That’s rich.
First of all, U.S. Code requires B.S.A. to promote patriotism, citizenship being a component of patriotism. The boy scout program stopped promoting patriotism with the Improved Scouting Program. A strong case can be made the first large-format “Boy Scout Handbook”s — replacement for the pocket sized, “Handbook for Boys” — seriously deprecated patriotism which formerly comprised as much as a quarter of the handbook’s text.
Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced last fall that it would begin allowing girls into its Cub Scout and Scouting programs. Other BSA programs, such as Venturing, have already been open to girls. And beginning in February 2019, the Boy Scout program name will change to Scouts BSA to become inclusive.
The vision for BSA with this new change is “to provide an opportunity for girls and young women to share in some of the same benefits as boys have done for years in term of leadership development,” said Lee Shaw Jr., director of National Alliances for BSA.
