I have younger brothers who participated in the Boy Scouts. I never did. I was so soured by the Cub Scouts (a sissy organization run by mothers 😉 ), I wanted no part of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Well, in hindsight I must admit I made a mistake. The men who ran the scout troop my brothers joined actually let them do something besides drinking milk and eating cookies.
Unfortunately, the BSA’s leadership has lost sight of their mission. For the sake of corporate donations and favorable news coverage, the BSA leadership seems bent on giving up the organization’s principles. These principles are expressed in the Scout Law.
A SCOUT IS CLEAN IN THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED. Decent Scouts look down upon silly youths who talk dirt, and they do not let themselves give way to temptation, either to talk it or to do anything dirty. A Scout is pure, and clean-minded, and manly.
The Boy Scouts once used the lure of the great outdoors to coax boys into becoming morally straight, responsible young men. Even though practical experience and medical knowledge clearly shows same-sex sex is unhealthy and self-destructive, now the BSA has begun to adopt a more worldly, politically correct attitude about sex.
Same-sex sex is not pure, clean-minded, or manly. Nonetheless, the BSA appears bent upon accepting unrepentant homosexuals into its ranks.
No human institution survives forever, and so it is with the BSA. When corruption sets in, often there is only one alternative. Begin anew.

The decision was framed as a compromise, but one that experts said might eventually lead to litigation and thousands of defections from one of America’s largest youth organizations. A Boy Scout poll earlier this year showed the Scouting community was deeply divided on the issue.
The moral decay of America continues apace, just as the Progressives wish it.
Here’s more from the Post story;
The immediate impact of the policy change, endorsed by more than 60 percent of the organization’s 1,400 voting members, is hard to predict.
Some of the Scouts’ largest stakeholders, including the Mormon and Catholic churches, reiterated in recent weeks their opposition to same-sex relationships, but some appeared open to staying in Scouting with a wait-and-see approach as a way…
