The Boy Scouts of America (now the “BSA Scouts” since they began including girls) is certainly not the organization it was created to be.
Where once the classic values of honor, loyalty, and duty were held sacred, BSA has long since fallen victim to the modern progressive values of political correctness, cultural Marxism, and moral relativism.
Ever since The Boy Scouts made the untenable decisions to allow homosexuals to be troop leaders, to admit transgender “boys” (biological females) into their ranks, and finally, to admit all girls into the organization, the BSA hasn’t just been going downhill—it’s been a dead organization walking.
Now, at their quadrennial World Scout Jamboree event, BSA attendees and guests will have access to condoms. Seriously!
According to The Washington Times, The World Organization of Scouting Movement handbook requires the host organization to “ensure that condoms are readily and easily accessible for all participants and [International Service Team staff] at a number of locations on the site.”
Because all attendants of the world’s biggest BSA event, which is geared toward children and teens, is expecting to have unplanned sexual encounters?! What on earth?!
The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be held in West Virginia and began on July 21st. The event, whose theme is “Unlock a New World,” will run until August 1st.
The Washington Times reported last year when the policy first came to light:
The World Jamboree is an official World Organization of the Scout Movement event. The Boy Scouts are co-hosting this year’s program with two other scouting organizations, Scouts Canada and the Scouts Association of Mexico.
Andy Chapman, vice chairperson of the World Scout Committee, said the co-hosts are working to implement requirements previously laid out by the World Organization of the Scout Movement.
“The World Scout Jamboree organizing team has worked with the co-host countries to align these requirements, which have been in place for the past two World Scout Jamborees, in a manner that is respectful to local laws and preferences,” Mr. Chapman said in a statement.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Florida Family Policy Council (FLF) reported at the time that the World Jamboree guidelines also have “exceptions,” allowances, and instructions for the consumption of alcohol in “confined areas” at the event.
So, let’s get this straight: we have adults, including homosexual men, children of both genders which could include any of the myriad invented “gender identities,” and they want to throw alcohol into the mix?!
This is to say nothing of the Scouts’ long history of child sex abuse, as we have reported on in the past.
According to FLF, John Stemberger, chairman of the board of Trail Life USA said it is “not clear how far down the rabbit hole the Boy Scouts will continue to fall.”
“All of this should be deeply disturbing to the churches that are chartering Boy Scout Troops,” Mr. Stemberger said. “These policies present a clear youth protection problem that the BSA absolutely refuses to recognize. The fact that they are requiring that condoms be ‘readily accessible’ and are communicating this to everyone — including youth participants — shows that the BSA is both anticipating and facilitating sexual conduct between minors at this event. These policies are both outrageous and completely irresponsible.”
Parents, the time has long since passed for making excuses to keep our kids in these morally-bankrupt scouting organizations. Thankfully, alternatives like Heritage Girls and Trail Life USA are ready, willing, and able to welcome those who still wish to raise their children with a strong moral backbone.
