Boy Scouts of America may
declare bankruptcy

New York Post, by Max Jaeger

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 12/12/2018 6:41:23 PM

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Comments:
This has nothing at all to do with membership losses caused by the virtue-signaling (and lazy) Rex Tillerson transforming them into the Gay-Scouts.

Some years ago the BSA decided to accept homosexuals as scout leaders. This after years of being sued every other Tuesday for sex abuse by homosexual scoutmasters. I knew then that they were done....just a matter of time. Then trying to get girls to join to prop up their declining numbers. That whistling sound you hear is Baden-Powell spinning in his grave.

the article tries to blame it on losses of Scouts since 1970..
it was doing quite well until "On May 23, 2013, the BSA´s National Council approved a resolution to remove the restriction denying membership to youth on the basis of sexual orientation"

wonder how many AMERICANS, like myself (in Scouting since 1954), quit supporting them on that day?

Article fails to mention that after BSA surrendered to the gay mafia and the rest of the libtard agenda, millions of people like me, a proud Eagle Scout who had donated to them most of my adult life, cut off those donations. So not only are they being sued out the wazoo, they have next to no income coming in with which to pay off those suits. I´m shedding no tears for them. They were warned but refused to listen. And now it´s time to pay the price.

The French Creek Council of the Boy Scouts (Western Pennsylvania) gave some sort of outstanding citizen award to Dr. William Garvey, who, aS President of Mercyhurst College, was a big supporter of the Boy Scouts, enjoyed going on camping trips with boys.
Garvey was outed as a pedophile by one of his former basketball players - Garvey was a volunteer elementary coach at a Catholic elementary school.
The current bishop in the Erie Diocese named his pedophile priests and lay people. Garvey was on the list. (Garvey had been forced into retirement at Mercyhurst College, after being protected by the Sisters of Mercy and the Council of Trustees at the college, with a year´s pay and a thank you.But it would take years to remove the pedophile president´s name from Garvey Park on campus.
(Garvey selected his successor, who some believe was especially close to Garvey.)
And the Boy Scouts never rescinded that award to Garvey.

I was a scout for a few years in the early 70´s. I was in good troops and bad ones, but never had pedophile problems or anything even remotely like it. The worst I suffered was badly cooked potatoes and cuts from using a knife wrong. And foot blisters. Lots of them. I am having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around all this pervert stuff.

And here- think about this - If the Boy Scouts of American had remained strong and resisted the tranny, gay (insert alphabet soup letters here) orgs, they would have continued to receive my and my wife´s annual gift, plus, no doubt at all, a bonus from every American who believes in :

"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."

Today the organization would be fully in the black, loaded with scouts and probably fat with cash. But, they had to cave, didn´t they?

As a proud Eagle Scout (1969), I have watched the BSA spiral down the "progressive" sewer drain over the past years, so am not surprised with this outcome.

It´s probably time for the Scouts as a organization to fold up tents, since it no longer resembles the vision of its founder anyway.

I´m the mother of an Eagle scout. There are many other Eagle scouts in my family.
Eagle has been a special achievement that had life-long benefits. My nephew got a special assignment in the USMC because he is an Eagle Scout. (His son became an Eagle scout last month.)
It´s too bad. Boys need male-bonding and role models. It´s about the sissification of males.

Trump’s Sec. of State Rex Tillerson Lobbied For Gay Youth in Boy Scouts

President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, lobbied for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to change its rules on youth membership and allow homosexuals to join the organization, according to the Dallas Morning News...

Two years after that rule change, the BSA changed its rules again to allow homosexual men to work in the organization as Scout Masters and in other positions.

It ends there. How sad - such a fine program ruined. So many boys were taught to be men. Not any more.

Where is a leader to form the Scouts of old? There are several groups that mentor black boys in many cities. Why couldn´t they form an association that brings together all the mentoring programs for all boys? In this massive country we can´t find enough men to do this? I mean MEN, leaders who won´t bow to the evil pressure of the left. Form the group with enough firepower that expressly lays down the guidelines, as in Morally Straight.

The fact that no one is doing this, that no one can figure out how to defeat evil progressive/left demons, says it all about how lost we are as a country. It is pathetic. It shows how morally deficient and absolutely rotten our culture is. All that ´toleration´ and acceptance led us right into a dead end alley where the most degenerate freak calls the tune. No LBGTXYZ was harmed by not being a Boy Scout. Just like short, fat, old people weren´t harmed by being excluded from playing in the NFL, NBA or MLB.

Although this article is about the BOY scouts, the girl scouts have also lost their way...

The leadership has long been taken off Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low´s intended mission and has liberalized them away from the traditional values they were founded upon.

And then they destroy everything they touch, even when you give them that mile!!!

The day the BSA bent over and took one from the gaystapo to allow homosexual leaders, the destruction of what was formerly one of the most honorable organizations on earth was set into motion. It was only a matter of time.

To be honest, they have lasted longer than I thought they would...

I have two grandsons in Scouting, and one is very near his Eagle Scout status---just has to complete his community service project.

On the overnight campouts my son always acts as one of the sponsors. I haven´t asked outright, but I can imagine why he does this.

So sad. I was a Girl Scout and learned much that is still with me to this day. I´m sure much has changed, however, in these last fifty years.

what went wrong.
In the past I could be counted on to buy anything they were selling at store entrances. I still feel sorry for them as walk on by. A few years ago , I downloaded a copy of the original Boy Scout manual. Boy Howdy! reading THAT today will explain how their actions of the last couple decades have caused their predictable demise. Heck, they even mentioned God and patriotism throughout.

Look for the Girl Scouts to follow in the not too distant future. Leftists took over that institution too and they are now all about turning girls into little feminazi abortion supporters and activists. And probably promoting lesbianism as well.

This is a very sad day indeed. In 1963 I joined the boy scouts after my parents were divorced. I can not tell you how important this was to my life. The organization gave me an anchor and taught values. In my teens I actually worked as a summer camp counselor for six summers (10 weeks per year)

There are no other organizations that can replace them. Boys today stay indoors and play video games. We were outside learning
outdoor skills, camping, cooking, nature, pioneering, first aid.

Kids today can´t even change a flat tire!

RIP Boy Scouts of America

BSA made its own bed, now it has to sleep in it. BSA used to be a good organization. Both of my boys were in scouts and benefitted from it.

BSA´s future took a wrong turn when deviated from it founding moral principles. Branding itself now as the Gay Scouts of America, or the Boy/Girl Scouts of America or the Transgen Scouts of America together with scout masters, some of who are girlie men and were screwed up morally, has brought BSA to this point. BSA´s soon to be demise is another example of America´s societal decline. Sadly, PC has brought it down and it will not be here much longer.

What a travesty.

I left the Boy Scouts in 73 with just my service project left to go for Eagle. Frankly I was doing things for my church that would have qualified.

I was put off by an increasing urban focus and Eagle scouts who couldn´t start a fire if their lives depended on it.

One of my scout pards in retrospect is probably gay. Never was an issue, I didn´t sneak out of the tent to find girls to molest and he kept his inclinations to himself. We didn´t feel a need to broadcast everything about ourselves in that era.

This may not apply to you, however, stuff like losing the Scouts was promised in Rom 1:18 through Romans 2:1. He promised it, it´s happening, go figure. Sometimes God´s promises aren´t happy bo-bappy things. For what it´s worth, expect a LOT more of it in the future. Granted, we´re not Israel of the Old Testament but the same promises and principles apply like in Deuteronomy 28:15-68. If you´re in the "There is no God and I hate Him" crowd and/or think the silly God-myth book was written by ancient and ignorant goat herders, just ignore this post.

A few years ago about the time of acknowledgement by Rex Tillerson and the acceptance of gays in the ranks I told my son to take my two grandsons out of the scouts. I came from a Scouting family in the 50s and 60s my father being the Scoutmaster. I have kept everything Scouting after he passed as a shrine to him. It is only memories now.
I guess Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico will be replace with Brokeback Mountain Ranch. Thank you LGBTQP for your crusade against morality.

My son is a Eagle Scout and was in a troop where all the leaders were Dads. As far as is known the troop never had any homosexual pederasts infiltrate the troop adult leadership ranks and there were no sexual abuse incidents. Of course that was back in the 1980’s when things were different with the National Scout leadership. Too bad that the Boy Scouts May now pass into history.

How can this be? Leftists assured us that the Scouts would emerge as a much stronger, vital organization after "homophobe" groups like the LDS church bailed out. In truth, the Left wanted to kill the Boy Scouts, and now it looks like they may have succeeded.

Boy Scout here, then assistant Scoutmaster, then father of a Scout. Helped me at the time so much, coming from divorced parents. Donated to the BSA until they brought in the Gays. It was a great institution, I remember how proud I was when we walked through a guard of honor of Boy Scouts into the George W. Bush first inaugural ball. The gay perversion has been the tip of the spear of Cultural Marxism bent on destroying all institutions of Western Civilization for ideological purposes. The Democrat party follows the same agenda.

My mother was a Girl Scout leader for 30 years from 1955 to 1985. She started with my oldest sister’s Brownie troop and took them through to Senior scouts in high school. When my Junior troop in grade school couldn’t find a mother to be the leader, she took on my troop while simultaneously leading the Senior girls. She kept her Senior troop “open ended” bringing in new 9th graders every year as the older girls graduated.

She took two trips to the International Scout House in Cuernavaca, Mexico; her original Senior troop and the blended troop when we were between our junior and senior years in high school. After I graduated in 1972, she remained the leader of “Walawi” until 1985 bringing in 9th graders and graduating seniors every year. I cannot imagine the hundreds of girls that were positively influenced by my wonderful mother. We used to tease her that she “took the green veil.”

For about 20 of those years she was on the San Fernando Valley Girl Scout Council Board of Directors. The last five years she fought the liberalization of Scouting, although I doubt she realized she was up against the communist cabal dedicated to the destruction of American society. She only knew these women were wrong and led the resistance against them. Eventually, she was the one forced out being worn down by time and age. She always remained proud of her 30 years of helping girls become women, but she mourned the loss of what Girl Scouts used to be. I’m thankful she passed in 1993 and did not live to see the travesty of Scouting today.

I received my Eagle Scout rank 50 years ago.

I disagree with those who suppose that the Boy Scouts would be strong today had they not abandoned their position against admitting gay scouts and scoutmasters.

The BSA made this change because they were facing dozens of lawsuits by gays on the basis of being denied membership under various state anti-discrimination laws. These were similar to the opportunistic lawsuits filed by leftist gays suing wedding cake bakers, etc.

The BSA was bound to be sued out of existence either way. The Left marches onward, destroying American moral values wherever it finds them. They hate Trump for appointing dozens of conservative judges to the country´s federal district and circuit courts, and especially to the SCOTUS.

Here is yet another Eagle Scout (1968, Troop 217, Nashville) who deplores the emasculation and the demise of the BSA. (Thanks a bunch, T Rex; Trump was so wrong to have hired you and so right to gave gotten rid of you.)

What experiences we had as Scouts. When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the moon´s surface on 20 July 1969, 35,000 of us Scouts at the National Jamboree (Farragut State Park, ID) were watching closed circuit television at the amphitheater. We all lit and held up candles. Still gives me goosebumps recalling the celebration. We had such an appreciation of America in those days, pretty much universally agreed.

That greatness still inheres in Americans. We finally have a president who is willing to stand up to the slings and arrows of outrageous media and international socialist foolishness. It´s a shame he hired Tillerson. But get rid of the mistake and move on.

It features retired NYPD detectives who have spearheaded a private investigation linking the numerous, suspicious deaths of men around the country together and asking whether or not they were in fact the victims of murder.

A petition drive to win support to paint the Walt Whitman Bridge the multi-colors of the gay pride flag has been launched on social media. The petition was posted on Change.org with a goal of tallying 1,000 signatures. The 2-mile bridge connects Gloucester City, just south of Camden, with Philadelphia, and was opened in 1957. It is named for Walt Whitman, widely considered one of the most influential American poets. Whitman is also celebrated for prose about the beauty of the human body and his love for men which is depicted in some of his best-known works,

A dine-and-dash by wig-wearing Applebee’s customers in Clifton on Wednesday led to a high-speed chase through three counties after a cop investigating the theft got dragged 50 feet by a car, authorities said. The chase began about 6:30 p.m. after police were called to the Applebee’s in Clifton Commons on Route 3 East about a theft of services, according to police. Workers told police two women and two men ordered food at the restaurant and left without paying, authorities said. (Snip) An Applebee’s employee ran after them and grabbed one of the men not far

A violent thug who’d been bailed out by a nonprofit—only to viciously choke and sexually violate a young woman in the Bronx a week after he was sprung—will stay behind bars for the next 18 years under a plea deal he took Wednesday. Lynneke Burris, 30, of Brooklyn, already had a lengthy rap sheet, including for violent muggings, and had been jailed on a new assault charge when The Bronx Freedom Fund posted his $1,000 bail on April 5.

Gillette´s controversial new ad tackling toxic masculinity has gotten mixed reviews, but even fans of the message are baffled to see the company discouraging sexism while continuing to charge more for its female shaving products. Known as the ´pink tax,´ the common form of gender-based price discrimination involves women being charged premium prices for items specifically marketed towards women while men pay less for virtually the same product.(Snip) One woman tweeted screengrabs from Target´s website to show that a refill pack of blades for one of Gillette´s popular women´s razors costs $2.50 more than its male counterpart.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies.

Despite all the fanfare, her recent “60 Minutes” interview with Anderson Cooper shined a bright spotlight on a painful fact: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will make it harder for young women in politics to be taken seriously in the future. In mere minutes, Ocasio-Cortez managed to affirm nearly every negative stereotype about the female sex,
