Skip to comments.Boy Scout Exodus Has Begun
Posted on 05/29/2013 2:51:38 PM PDT by Nachum
Last week, the executive board of Boy Scouts of America voted to allow openly gay kids into their programs, thus compromising their long standing set of Christian morals and values. When I heard about their vote, it saddened me to see them succumb to the pressures of a debauched society.
In my report last week about their compromise, I predicted that a number of church sponsored Boy Scout programs would be ended the same way it happened in Canada when they allowed the gays to go camping with them. Well, it seems the exodus has begun.
Southeast Christian Church first opened its doors in 1962 with 53 charter members in Louisville, KY. It has an average weekly attendance of 22,000 and a membership of over 30,000. It is the largest church in Kentucky and fifth largest in the United States.

I will no longer support this new, perverse boy scout organization...
Thia reminds me of what happened when the Jaycees opened their membership to single women. The membership took a nose dive because the wives didn’t want any problems with their husbands getting too close to the new gals.
The Boys Scouts should have changed their charter to be a strictly Judeo-Christian organization, then they should have told everyone that didnt like their policies to bugger themselves.
It is a sin that the gays/progressives/liberals (whatever you want to call them) are destroying another wholesome institution from the inside.
Good men need to rise up and build a replacement. A better replacement that embraces the fatherless.
The Golden Age of Scouting was from the 1950’s into the mid 1960’s. Membership roles have fallen off for decades since & this PC Gay stance may end it for good!
The BSA had a chance to stand on principle and shine; instead they chose to concede their values to degenerate faggots. I have no pity for the BSA. They made their bed, now they can sleep in it.
They were worried about a couple of big donors dropping out. Now they don’t have to worry the kids won’t be going in.
One of the most stupid votes in history.
As I understand, the Boy Scouts were forced into confronting this issue (and indeed the gay lobby had leverage over them) because large corporate donors, such as UPS, Merck and Intel were threatening to withhold funding from the National Council.
Corporate funding, stays at the National Council, while the local troops are basically self-funding.
So in sum, we can say that the National Council has years ago sold itself to corporate sponsors, and is now paying the price for it. As we often see, maintaining funding and jobs means in the center of a bureaucracy a lot more than principles. Political views will then flow accordingly (AARP, for example).
Meanwhile, the local troops, who get few resources from the National Council (except training materials, guidelines, etc...) must implement the gay-policy.
Sounds like a local revolt against the National Council should be the next step....
If anyone knows more about the inner workings of Boy Scouts funding and legal status, I would like to hear it.
“Come out from among them”-St. Paul
Kill the BSA
Kill The Churches That No Longer Sponsor Scout Troops
The perfect storm for liberal mischief.
People without spines tend to do that.
yes, get the boys OUT of there! and into other similar clubs that at least try to uphold some basic moral standards for the boys!
Maybe some people still know what “morally straight” means.
Jewish Scouting leaders vocal on gay inclusion
Should have said "secular, not Observant Jews"; but it didn't.
It used to be one could be proud of achievements in Scouting, now, it would be best to leave them off the resume.
It’s better to shut down the BSA then to be forced to submit to evil. There is HONOR in that!
What, you don't like $50 pants for your 12 year old??? Baden-Powell would be pissed.
Right up there w/ Roberts on 0scumbagCare.
They already won a law suite in the SCOTUS that allowed them to exclude whomever they wanted. They simply wanted the money from the perverts in Corporate America.
Then the secular Jews can be with the perverts - because the HONOR has left.
The observant Jews can be with their own type, true Christians. We are all in this together.
Hmmm. Someone needs to tell them 'big donors' can't buy honor. They appear to be tainted by our election process.
Living in the rural area of South Jersey 4-H is pretty popular.Hopefully the boys can gravitate towards them, at least in rural areas of the US
And just like marriage , and military, they don’t give a damn about the institution or equal rights.
It’s all about tearing something down out of some Evil miscreant sense of loathing descentcy, and wanting to deconstruct our American culture
Yo homo promoter! Over here.....oh wait. Nevermind.
I think the idea behind the gay assault was to destroy the Boy Scouts, and the plan seems to have worked.
What organized alternatives are there to BSA?
I guess they’ll have to change their name to the Gay Scouts of America.
All they had to do was stay the same. It’s an organization that always worked.
The Golden Age of Scouting was from the 1950s into the mid 1960s.
And proud to have been a member during this time. My 2 brothers made Eagle Scout, as did numerous Presidents.
Sadly, my family moved too often for me to get beyond 1st Class.
But, followers of Scripture KNOW that this time would come...
“Boy Scout Exodus Has Begun”
Almost time for Boy Scout Leviticus.
It has been brough to my attention that the BSA has a Congressional Charter making it illegal for other youth groups to have “Scout” in their name or say they engage in “Scouting.”
Time to end the Charter. They also get special tax treatment in almost all (if not all) states. Time to end it.
Yeah, most people won’t say anything at all about this(for fear of the hassle and indignity of being attacked and called homophobes), but will just quietly either leave the BSA or not join in the first place.
Good news. There MUST ALWAYS be consequences to caving to the moral depravity and perversion of the Democrat left.
What decent parent would let their boy belong to an organization that has now declared itself a place where homos can go scouting for boys?
You are what i s wrong with conservatives. Chicken crap.....cowards, turncoats, run away runaway runaway.
Sanctimonious self righteous trumps goodness and bravery. That is worse than the queers, cowardice in the face of the enemy
You have become the enemy
Any church that supports the BSA are not a church of the living God.
Can you name names? I would like to drop them a line.
What a load of garbage.
There are no 7 year old queers
There are no 11 year old queers
there are no 13 year old queers
The quantity will be so small they will nt be the nightmaare you dreamed up.
There will be lots of good families that continue to support Scouting
One of the biggest, long-term advocates for inclusion of open homosexual scouts and adult leaders is the Jewish Committee on Scouting. The Reformed and Conservative branches of American Judaism both practice homosexual marriage.
My kids are out as of now. And I am not even religious. Buh bye scouts.
Having lived in Louisville for a number of years, I can attest to this.
Their second church was pretty large and right down the street from me (when Southeast Christian sold it, it turned into a black church, can't remember the denomination).
Now the church is a typical megachurch. Physically large with a hugh membership. Personally, I don't understand why anyone would want to attend a church where you're a number.
It's interesting that the article doesn't explain Southeast's original desire to exit the BSA:
When the issue of gays in the scouts first came up as a national issue, Southeast Christian Church began discussing the possibility of removing itself from the Boy Scouts so as not to be caught up in the debate.
All good families will abandon scouting when it becomes just another queer indoctrination club.
On a percentage basis, membership in troops from 1970 to 2010 decreased 56.3%. Total membership peaked in 1973 at 4,852,827.
I guess it’s the 17 year old queers parents need to worry about.
The queers should form their own organization - - the WE-BLOWs.
Yeah, I ain’t down with that.
I have several Jewish friends and they were extraordinary achievers in BSA and Eagle Scouts.
