The Boy Scouts of America has now fully gone ’round the bend and has become a group that no parent should ever support.
The Boy Scouts of America is no longer the stalwart organization it once was, that important place we sent boys to turn them into reliable, competent men. Now, instead of teaching impressionable boys how to grow up to be well rounded, civilized men, the organization is exposing kids to political correctness, aberrant lifestyles, and sexual license. Indeed, with its newest outrage, the BSA has just added a policy of freely handing out condoms to boys at its international jamboree.
In what is just another sad commentary on our times, the Boy Scouts of America — who are now being called Scouts BSA, dropping the “Boy” part of the name — has announced a new policy that will be put into action just ahead of the organization’s 2019 international jamboree event.
The BSA, it has been announced, will now give out fistfuls of condoms to the boys at its upcoming international bacchanalia… er, camp out. Why is it doing this? Why is the BSA handing out condoms to these young teenaged boys?
Well, it’s because now the organization has opened itself up for girls to join, of course. Obviously, they don’t want their boys impregnating their new female scouts, thus the condoms. Apparently teaching their boys to be gentlemen is not an idea under consideration.
You read that right. After the Boy Scouts spent 100 years being a boys-only organization, now they have to worry about sex in their camps because girls are now being invited to join.
As the UK Daily Mail reported:
Rules now require that the host organization of the World Scout Jamboree provide condoms at a ‘number of locations’ for staff and participants during the event.
Leaders of the participating organizations must also communicate the policy to their ‘participants, unit leaders, and contingent staff’, the mandate requires.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held in the mountains of West Virginia from July 21 to August 1, 2019.
According to the Mail the rules were changed in anticipation of the upcoming 2019 Jamboree:
A World Jamboree is held every four years and it appears the World Scout Committee modified the guidelines in anticipation of the 2019 event.
International members of the Girl Guides or Girl Scouts, as they are known in the US, have been allowed to attend past jamborees if their national association had an arrangement with the World Organization of the Scout Movement.
But it is expected that girls will make up ‘half of all participants’ attending the 2019 World Scout Jamboree, according to the organization.
The 2019 theme for the jamboree event is also a total exercise in PCism.
The 2019 theme is ‘Unlock a New World’, which is meant to reflect the ‘new adventures, cultures, and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the event’.
Instead of focusing on scouting, this event will be a frenzy of PCism meant to indoctrinate kids on multiculturalism, instead of useful scouting skills.
News of the new rules to indiscriminetly distribute condoms comes only weeks after the Scouts changed its name in order to allow girls to join.
As Breitbart News reported early this month:
The Boys Scouts organization will change its name to reflect its coming new membership now that girls are allowed to join the formerly all-male organization. This marks an end to a 108-year tradition due to the forces of political correctness.
The Boy Scouts of America announced on May 2 that starting in February, its flagship program will be called “Scouts BSA,” according to the Chicago Tribune.
Saying the name change process was “incredibly fun,” Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh stated that many different names were considered during the deliberations.
“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” Surbaugh said. “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”
Well, with all this, I guess we really have left the era when boys were expected to act like civilized men. The Scouts really should change the name of their jamboree to the annual Bacchanalia.
This is only the latest series of events that have caused the Boy Scouts to fall from grace. It should be remembered that starting as far back as 2013 or so the BSA began wrestling over whether to allow gays to join as scoutmasters.
The left has had its long knives out to gut the BSA for decades, of course. That is because for many years the group refused to allow openly gay men to be scoutmasters of vulnerable young boys (remember how well the Catholic Church did with gay priests, after all). In 2012, for instance, the left-wing Atlantic magazine insisted that the BSA needed to be put down like a rabid dog because it had not suffeciently gayed itself up.
But, after years of being attacked on a monthly basis in the media, by 2015 the BSA finally changed its rules and decided to allow gay men to become scoutmasters.
That policy change led us to stories such as the 50-year-old gay scoutmaster arrested for molesting boys in 2017 in Pennsylvania.
Recently the Los Angeles Times printed a useful timeline on how the BSA lost its soul and joined the left-wing world of PCism. The article shows how the BSA went from an all-boy group trying to teach the fine art of manliness, to allowing gays, transgenders, and women in among its ranks.
Ultimately, if parents want a place for their young boys to learn how to become civilized young men, learn useful survival skills, and become independent, worthy members of society, they should turn away from the Boy Scouts of America. Sadly, the BSA is just another corrupted institution that was once a wonderful outlet for our youth.
