FROM WOKE TO BROKE: The Boy Scouts Are Filing For Bankruptcy!

It’s good for kids of all ages to belong to some kind of youth organization.

When I was a young man I was a Cub Scout until the local organization practically disbanded when the military base I lived near growing up closed.

Once I got older I became a member of several local 4H groups that were just the thing that so many kids living in a small town needed to learn how to communicate with people and work together.

The problem nowadays is everything has to be so homogenized that if everyone isn’t included in something that nobody can have it. It would almost be like if you had a ten year old that wanted to be on the high school football team. It just wouldn’t make any sense.

However, with wanting to be so inclusive that they ended up ripping their core principles apart at the seams it feels as if liberals have done the damage to the Boy Scouts that they sought out to do.

Via Red State:

The once proud organization known as the Boy Scouts is declaring bankruptcy after severely flagging numbers due to a myriad of problems, including implementing social justice measures to make it more inclusive.

According to the Daily Caller, the Boy Scouts changed its name to Scouts BSA and began to allow girls into their ranks. Before that, the Boy Scouts ruled that openly gay scouts and scout leaders could also join the program. This lead to a serious decline in membership and now the organization is filing Chapter 11:

The Wednesday report comes in the wake of sinking membership and multiple controversies surrounding the 108-year-old organization, including sex abuse allegationsand its controversial decision to change its program name from Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA and allow girls into that program.

Chicago law firm Sidley Austin has reportedly been hired to assist in what would be a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

As the organization has made decisions deemed to be more inclusive, such as allowing openly gay scouts in 2013 and scoutmasters in 2015 as well as the 2018 decision to allow girls, membership has continued to decline sharply, from over 4 million members at its peakto a claimed 2.3 million members at present.

It’s only going to get worse as well. The Mormon Church has announced that it’s discontinuing its partnership with the Boy Scouts and will be starting up its own boy’s program in 2020, according to the Daily Caller. When that happens, the Scouts will lose a third of its membership.

Combined with the fact that it kept sexual abuse allegations secret for decades, the Scouts seems to have rotted from the inside.

Whether the Scouts would have survived in this modern age without any of these events happening is still up for debate, but it definitely didn’t help it. Boys clubs are becoming few and far between with each of them coming under attack for not being inclusive to girls or members of the LGBT community.

    The LDS church will be discontinuing its membership dec 31 2018, not in 2020. So understanding that, I think losing 1/3 of its membership at the end of this month and thus already not having their dues for the next scout year was the nail in the coffin!(membership drives occured earlier in the year.)

    Actually Daz, the LDS church ends its relationship with BSA on Dec 31 2019, not 2018. The whole situation driven by the loud minority of “politically correct” elite has sadly won the battle to destroy the BSA. It’s a bad case of the tail wagging the dog, and the BSA leadership did mot seem to comprehend that. Yes, there were some bad apples in the leadership at the scoutmaster/boy scout level, but the perception was made worse by the inclusion and welcoming of gays etc at all levels in the organization. That alone has badly tainted the wholesome reputation that the BSA enjoyed in days gone by. The BSA to their credit imposed background checks and leader training to try to overcome child abuse in the organization.

    Another victim of the left wing politically correct BS! You would think these agencies, organizations and companies would be smart enough to see through the agenda to destroy anything good, wholesome and successful! They’ve managed to destroy companies like Dicks, the NFL and the Boy Scouts.

    It is time to stand up and say it out loud: There are only two biological human beings, man and woman. It is not hateful to point this out. Medical science has not yet identified a “homosexual” gene or any dna markers that identify persons as anything other than male or female. Sexual and behavioral abnormalities are choices that persons make and until 1973, were considered mental disorders. Now, after almost 45 years of Homosexual activism, these choices are to be considered “normal”. It is obvious to the 98% of the “straight” population that this is not so, but we have been so bludgeoned by liberals who champion such behavior through the courts, schools, press, and Hollywood that we have lost our voice. Now, the wonderful organization known as Boy Scouts of America has succumbed to these attacks. We have to rise up, tell them to leave our children alone, and encourage them to get some help.

    Fads come and fads go. The entirety of the fad that is deviant sexual expression, activity and celebration cannot end soon enough, regarding civility and normalcy in our culture. It lacks sanity that we should modify our cultural norms to elevate the idiocy of sexual deviancy to anything other than mental illness. So sorry to define this abhorrent behavior in such realistic terms, but “if we all did it, would it work?” The answer is no, so seek help, and heal thyself! The BSA should have listened to the vast majority, instead of cowing to lunacy!

    The Boy Scouts are just as much to blame. Stop being politically correct. Boy Scouts are for Boys, Girl Scouts are for Girls. What did the Boy Scouts think was going to happen by allowing gay scout masters. Not only should the parents bring law suits against the Boy Scouts, they should also bring law suits against who ever is running LGBT

    What do you expect when you try to appease the homosexual lobby and allow gay scoutmasters to be in charge of young boys. You just offered those innocent children to those freaks as a sexual buffet, now your paying for it. Once again the PC police muck it up for the straight world. Enjoy the crap you created, don’t think the homosexual lobby is going to bail you out anytime soon
