No jhe, it is an on going effort to change the Boy Scouts. Don't be fooled. It has been underway for years and will continue.

Any thing with history, heritage, legacy, tradition, etc. the progressives want to change it, destroy it, abolish it, etc.

It is afront in every aspect of our society today. Taught in our schools, pushed by our politicians and any other place you care to look or listen.

The instances of scout leaders molesting children and of children having sex will skyrocket. I would not doubt it if these decisions eventually bring down the Boy Scouts.

Yes... it's part of the larger "culture wars" which are ongoing. Our side has surrendered the popular culture to Hollywood leftists.... but we have begun to fight back.

Your local troop may still be a great organization, which depends on the people leading it, but the national organizations board has been taken over by the progressives.

In San Diego, a row developed over not allowing an openly gay man to be a troop leader. This turned into such a rhubarb that Combined Federal Campaign and other charitable fund drives eventually withdrew funding from Boy Scouts and threatened to terminate Boy Scout use of facilities in Balboa Park and Fiesta Island, among others. Civic minded business leaders, those who hoped to become civic leaders, avoided all connection to Boy Scouts for fear of the taint which precluded men who had been members of white only country clubs from appointments to the federal bench decades ago.




Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Be prepared! That's the Boy Scout's marching song,
Be prepared! As through life you march along.
Be prepared to hold your liquor pretty well,
Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell.

Be prepared! To hide that pack of cigarettes,
Don't make book if you cannot cover bets.
Keep those reefers hidden where you're sure
That they will not be found
And be careful not to smoke them
When the scoutmaster's around
For he only will insist that it be shared.
Be prepared!

Be prepared! That's the Boy Scouts' solemn creed,
Be prepared! And be clean in word and deed.
Don't solicit for your sister, that's not nice,
Unless you get a good percentage of her price.

Be prepared! And be careful not to do
Your good deeds when there's no one watching you.
If you're looking for adventure of a new and different kind,
And you come across a Girl Scout who is similarly inclined,
Don't be nervous, don't be flustered, don't be scared.

Be prepared!



Nice is overrated

And people wonder why I carry a SIG P320

All 3 of our sons are Eagle Scouts and I can't even imagine how tough it would be to plan and attend events (like camping) if we had to plan around the opposite sex/girls being included.

Meh.

Look at who is pissed by this and that's the answer. The people that are really irked are the Girl Scouts because their programs for girls don't offer as much as boys did. It's a self-induced glass ceiling by the Girl Scouts and they've been called out on it by the Boy Scouts.

Yes many of you here think they should be separate however the Boy Scouts need new members and they already have the programs in place. Women control the money in most houses and when they bring their daughters to the Boy Scouts they will bring their money.

What I really want to know is who's going to be making the cookies.

I guess the next step being pushed will be a merger of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and it will just be called "The Scouts" and will never be the same again. Frown

My sister has been a scout leader for probably 15 years, starting when her son was a Cub. Her ex sure wasn't gonna step up.

I don't think there has been any molestation or hanky panky in her troop. Don't think she would put up with it, either.

Each troop (or pack if it is the Cubs) will be single sex. There are to be no mixed troops.

Boys will not be camping (or attending weekly meetings) with girls.

Simmer down.

I saw some Girl Scout executive on TV this morning. He was losing his shit. The Girl Scouts are probably scared that they will lose membership as their programs just don't measure up to those of the BSA. But he was scare-mongering for all he was worth and accusing the BSA of not having done enough to ensure that the scouts wouldn't be molested, and that no girl would be safe in the BSA, etc.
Close. Each Pack (this doesn't apply to Boy Scouts yet) will be either boys, girls, or coed. BSA is calling the coed shooting "Family Scouting." Official info here: http://www.scoutingnewsroom.org/family-scouting/




"I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here." -- Ronald Reagan, Farewell Address, Jan. 11, 1989

The Girl Scouts initially responded Wednesday to the Boy Scouts' decision with a blog post citing what it said is the power of the "single-gender environment."

"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire," Girl Scouts told ABC News in a statement today.


"Instead of addressing systemic issues of continuing sexual assault, financial mismanagement and deficient programming, BSA's senior management wants to add an accelerant to the house fire by recruiting girls."

I knew plenty of girls that were just too "rough and tumble" for anything as wussified as Girl Scouts. If they want to learn the skills and earn the merit badges, good for them. I like strong women. Build a few for my boy Smile

Nope. It’ll be little boys at the supermarket or knocking on your door saying “Would you like to buy some boy scout cookies?”



Well thank you pal. The day I get out of prison, my own brother picks me up in a police car.

This is about money and enrollment.

Forget all your forlorn memories of scouts.


It is a business now, and they want cash, add eligibility to 51% of the population is their strategy to get more.
