God bless the Scouts. Now I understand why the left wants to destroy scouting in America by destroying its core values - for the same reasons the communists saw scouting as a threat in Russia when they took over.

If it is decent and wholesome and good linked to religion the red left hates it because it affirms the wonder-workings of faith.

Reading this article over lunch made my day.

Because alligence to anything other than the state can not be tolerated by the left.

Any religion, any organization, any belief system that does not make the humanism religion, fascist or communist economy and totalitarian state government as the head of all things is not to be trusted and must be abolished.

Meanwhile, Scouts in Amerika are abused, sued, harrassed, evicted, vilified, and booed by democrat conventions because they take an oath to god and country, and don’t want homos out camping with their little boys.

Most Scouting organizations in the world are associated with either the WOSM (World Organization of Scouting Movements) or WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts). The Boy Scouts of America is associated with WOSM, the Girl Scouts of the United States of America is associated with WAGGGS. Each country is permitted only one member in WOSM, so if there are multiple Scouting organizations in a given country (as some have), they must have a federation that in turn becomes the WOSM member. Russia's member is shown as Russian Association of Scouts and Navigators. Unforunately I don't read Russian and the English side of the site doesn't seem to work well, so I can't tell if these guys are associated with them or not.

I sent the article to all of my scouting friends. I’d love to hear more about the underground scouting movement surviving 90 years.
