Boy Scouts´ Ranks Drop After
Year of Policy Change

Associated Press, by Nomaan Merchant

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/13/2014 10:15:52 AM

The Boy Scouts of America said Wednesday that it lost 6 percent of its membership after an often-bruising year in which it announced it would accept openly gay boys for the first time, over the objections of some participants who eventually left the organization. The organization´s national leadership voted in May to accept openly gay boys for the first time, while continuing to exclude gay leaders. That policy change, while lauded by gay-rights groups, angered conservatives and some members who consider homosexuality a sin and a violation of Scouting values. BSA spokesman Deron Smith said Wednesday that the 2013 decline could

If I were a parent now with small children, I would not send them to the boy scouts or the brownies. I don´t buy their cookies any more either. Let them reap what they sow.

To the perverts who forced this issue, a dropping of the ranks in a once-wholesome organization is a welcoming accompaniment to a dropping of the drawers.

Our Church disaffiliated from Boy Scouts because of the gay issue. Once thriving, the troop, with no sponsor, is disintegrating. Without traditional standards, the Boy Scouts is just another social club, and there are plenty of those.

There wouldn´t be any new groups forming if there were not significant drop outs from the BSA. Of course the BSA "leadership" is going to say there are other reasons. What else would you expect they would say?

The organization is an entity. If the entity is pro-gay, I would not want my kids involved.

Want to know why this happened? It wasn´t that parents, volunteer scouting leaders, or

BSA 2013 National Membership Study - Executive Summary
released 4/19/2013, key excerpts below ...

61% of scouters (volunteer leaders) favored traditional standard, 34% opposed it.

61% of Boy Scout parents supported the traditional standard

50% of Cub Scout parents supported traditional standard (45% of Cub Scout parents opposed it)

51% of major donors supported the traditional standard, while 33% opposed it.

But a majority of Fortune 500 companies want to see the policy changed to support open homosexual identification in Scouting.

BSA has been losing membership since 1973. The new Membership Standard adopted on 5/23/2013 to allow openly homosexual youth, but no adults, will add to the membership decline but not dramatically. It may take a year, i.e., early 2015, before BSA releases its annual membership statistics before we can judge how BSA membership has been affected.

They have lost more than %6. There are whole troops disbanding all over, not just in the Bible Belt...what did they think would happen? Again the 1% forcing policy on the majority. The Girl Scout´s National office force new world order policy as well and for once there is heavy heavy consequences....but the sad thing is those in New York will continue to get their exorbitant salaries, continue their decadent corporate spending...let´s talk child labor? Selling Girl Scout Cookies so the troops get 3% and corporate gets 60% to push a pro abortion,, pro gay anti America new world order. Both organizations over taken by God less, anti family values, anti American leadership...hmmm sounds like Congress.

There is no such thing as allowing gay members but not leaders. As the boys age, they are encouraged to take leadership in the troop and become junior leaders so to speak. Wah-lah! Gay leaders.

#7 I can´t ´like´ your comment enough.

We shall see whether this new policy hurts the BSA more than helps. The BSA has been losing membership for a long time already. But younger parents, being of the generation that agrees with the concept of ´marriage equality´, etc., may not care. And the older scouts, even if they care, want to finish what they´ve worked on for many years. So the impact of conservative young parents not joining Cub Scouts might not show up for awhile.

How long has the BSA been around!! They were doing just fine until they decided that they want to social engineer (gay lifestyle is normal and accepted).

You may put polish on a pig but it remains a pig!!! So the gays clamor for relevancy and acceptance in their lifestyle. It isn´t normal, never will be no matter how much social engineering is done. What´s next..change the uniform color to the gay rainbow!!

The problem with accepting "openly gay" scouts is that those kids who come out as gay are going to be older and potentially sexually active or inclined. That´s why teenaged Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts don´t share tents at camp.

This is actually bigger than just the Boy Scouts and gays. It is another example of the left´s push to destroy any and every value and mores that made this country great. There are no values that are not under attack, whether it be life, marriage, work ethic, religion etc. And unfortunately, they are being very successful.

This should be an opportunity for BSA troops to help those youth who may be confused about their sexuality to work through their issues. The role of Scouting is to help boys become better and to help them become men.

Since the change in BSA, I will not buy this rifle again. I notified Ruger that I and many friends will not buy their commemorative BSA rifles again.

Post #6 deserves more attention. Corporate sponsors pushing the issue.
For the benefit of those who have, mercifully, been spared contact with such things, that should probably be interpreted to mean that weenies in the HR and PR operations of various corporations are pushing this. Departments that are long known to be over-supplied with homosexual sodomites and lesbians. Wielding power to a level far above what is necessary or proper, and heavily invested in furthering aims inconsistent with making money or providing good products and services.
Perhaps the stockholders of these corporations might be more aggressive about opposing such practices at, say, stockholders´ meetings and other means by which the OWNERS of those corporations are informed of the status of the operation.

New technical problems with HealthCare.gov posed a roadblock Monday to people trying to beat the sign-up deadline. On Monday afternoon, a technical glitch was preventing people from filing new applications. A tech team, though, was brought in to resolve the issue. Earlier Monday, a series of error messages came up as the large volume of users stressed the system. According to HHS, more than 100,000 people were using the system at once as of noon.

The Obama administration wants to spend $400,000 on a camel sculpture for a new embassy building in Pakistan, according to a report Monday. BuzzFeed broke the news that the State Department has plans to commission the camel sculpture from John Baldessari, an American artist. The art is called, “Camel Contemplating Needle.” According to a government document posted by BuzzFeed, the sculpture is a “large 500lb fiberglass aluminum, stainless steel, acrylic and painted contemporary art piece.” “Public art which will be presented in the new embassy should reflect the values of a predominately Islamist country,” the document states.

Ahmad Zuaiter, however, is doing something a little different: using Dubai as a geographically central base from which to invest in frontier markets globally. Mr. Zuaiter, who managed money for George Soros until 2011, has been working for more than a year on a new firm called Jadara Capital, based in the Dubai International Financial Centre.

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.
