When LGBT sexual tyranny chalks up another victory in places like the left-coast state of California—where they are about to add a make-believe third gender option for CA driver’s licenses, ID cards, and birth certificates—it’s a business as usual situation for the alternate-reality leftists in charge of state government.
But when it happens to one of the oldest institutions in America, the Boy Scouts of America, created to teach the objectives of moral character development, good citizenship, and physical, mental, and emotional fitness, it is a tragedy. Although, we really shouldn’t be surprised. It was former Secretary of State Robert Gates, BSA President from 2014-2016, who announced in July, 2015 the policy allowing homosexual men to be Scout Leaders.
Footnote: Trump’s Secretary of State nominee, Rex Tillerson, led the push to admit homosexual boys into the Scouts when he was BSA president a few years prior to Gates. And based on Trump’s decision this week to keep Obama’s pro-LGBT Executive Order granting special protections to members of the Rainbow Jihad working for federal contractors, it looks like Tillerson will be free to spread sexual tyranny around the globe.
But back to the Boy Scouts. On Monday, Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh announced that the organization will eliminate the need to be a boy in order to be a Boy Scout.
“As one of America’s largest youth-serving organizations, the Boy Scouts of America continues to work to bring the benefits of our programs to as many children, families and communities as possible.
“While we offer a number of programs that serve all youth, Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting are specifically designed to meet the needs of boys. For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America, along with schools, youth sports and other youth organizations, have ultimately deferred to the information on an individual’s birth certificate to determine eligibility for our single-gender programs. However, that approach is no longer sufficient as communities and state laws are interpreting gender identity differently, and these laws vary widely from state to state.
“Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application. Our organization’s local councils will help find units that can provide for the best interest of the child.”
When Gates issued his rule change, he claimed he did it to avoid lawsuits. In reality, it was a blatant display of cowardice in the face of politically correct sexual tyranny because the Supreme Court had already ruled in favor of the Boy Scouts’ constitutional right to prevent homosexuals from membership. Sadly, that cowardice continues with this recent announcement about accepting so-called transgendered children—I say “so-called” because there is no scientific evidence that LGBT behavior is genetic.
The objectives of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) are referred to as the “Aims of Scouting” and they are: moral character development, citizenship training, and development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness. The Boy Scout oath states, in part, that a scout will do his duty to God and his country, to keep himself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. Clearly, they no longer believe in these tenets.
Perhaps it’s time for Christians and churches that support the BSA to bid the organization a fond farewell.
