A longtime American tradition ended Friday as the Boy Scouts of America officially changed its name to Scouts BSA. Now, girls ages 11 through 17 may join and participate in programs, including earning the Eagle Scout rank.
“For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America is open to both young men and young women,” the website states with a photo of girls accompanying the text.
“Scouts BSA is a year-round program for boys and girls in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves,” the website reads.
The continued attack of our nation’s institutions from the SJWs plods on. This Breitbart commentator put it nicely:
A lot of people will say that is nonsense. But no, it is not. This is what they do. Chip away, chip away, chip away until they have everything and control everything so they can teach what they want and indoctrinate with their poison. The Boy Scouts caved to pressure and allowed gay members in 2013 and gay leaders in 2015. 2017 opened it up to transgenders. And 2019 is full-fledged female participation as well. And on some level this has nothing to do with gays or transgenders or girls. This isn’t an attack on them. It is an attack on the BSA for caving to pressure because of identity politics. And if I were a gambling man I would say the next thing they attack is the scout oath and scout law, which both allude to a duty to God. Because, you know, this is alienating the atheists. We cannot risk offending anybody!
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
The Scout Law has 12 points. Each is a goal for every Scout. A Scout tries to live up to the Law every day. It is not always easy to do, but a Scout always tries.
A Scout is:
TRUSTWORTHY. Tell the truth and keep promises. People can depend on you.
LOYAL. Show that you care about your family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and country.
HELPFUL. Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward.
FRIENDLY. Be a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from you.
COURTEOUS. Be polite to everyone and always use good manners.
KIND. Treat others as you want to be treated . Never harm or kill any living thing without good reason.
OBEDIENT. Follow the rules of your family, school, and pack. Obey the laws of your community and country.
CHEERFUL. Look for the bright side of life. Cheerfully do tasks that come your way. Try to help others be happy.
THRIFTY. Work to pay your own way. Try not to be wasteful. Use time, food, supplies, and natural resources wisely.
BRAVE. Face difficult situations even when you feel afraid. Do what you think is right despite what others might be doing or saying.
CLEAN. Keep your body and mind fit . Help keep your home and community clean.
REVERENT. Be reverent toward God. Be faithful in your religious duties. Respect the beliefs of others.
As with all institutions that kowtow to identity politics, this will likely kill off the institution once and for all. And given the extent of the metastases I say good riddance at this point. It is sad it had to come to this.
They are already dealing with a bunch of sexual abuse lawsuits. I cannot see the number of sexual lawsuits getting any smaller given the demographic of the group now.
The Girl Scouts are rightly disgruntled about this and have sued. Both institutions are probably done now. And whether you care about these institutions or not you should still care about how they’re being infested and ruined. This is how they operate. They infest. They are cancer. They have done it to the Boy Scouts, our schools, and our churches. Most people will think it is harmless: what does it matter if they allow <insert group here> into <insert institution here>. You think it stops there? No. They take control and then push an agenda that aligns with their ideology. Much like what is happening now with huge groups of immigrants coming in. You think they won’t push their own policies when they elect their own people into office? Of course not.
