Skip to comments.Southern Baptists Plan to Leave Boy Scouts 'En Masse.'
Posted on 06/03/2013 12:49:49 PM PDT by Prole
(Newser) The Boy Scouts of America's decision last month to allow gay members was made with the blessings of many churches and religious groupsbut not all of them. And here's a pretty significant opponent: The Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in America with 45,000 congregations and 16 million members, says it will now urge its followers to leave the Scouts, reports CNN. The Boy Scouts says Baptist churches currently sponsor nearly 4,000 units, containing more than 100,000 kids.
The Southern Baptist Convention will vote on a resolution to disaffiliate with the Scouts this month, and a spokesperson says he expects 99% of people to vote in support of it. "Southern Baptists are going to be leaving the Boy Scouts en masse," he says.

” the homosexuals have literally destroyed a great American icon. “
The BSA committed suicide. It will be insolvent inside a year.
And that’s what they want. They don’t want “recognition” or “acceptance.” They want to destroy traditional American, Christian institutions. They are ruled by hate.
A FRiend posted a chart on this website detailing how the queers pulled this off.
The queers basically used their high-powered lawyers to pressure donor organizations like AT&T, Verizon and UPS from donating/supporting the BSA. That kind of financial pressure ultimately had an impact on the BSA hierarchy, but they basically destroyed the organization with this absurd decision to support the homosexual agenda.
Good for the Southern Baptists. There are other groups like AWANA or Brigades which fulfill the same purpose and won’t morally compromise.
I doubt it. The Girl Scouts survived although weaker for it.
Encourage your friends to do the same.
They lack good sense and react with sanctimonious zeal like jihadists
the girl scouts died. They are nothing more than a shill for bad sawdust flavored cookies.
Didn’t the Girl Scouts recently support some kind of abortion group like Planned Parenthood?
Baptist’s have a competing organization in place and they should move to expand AWANA STAT.
AwanaStarted in Chicago in 1950, this coed, non-denominational, Christian evangelical ministry has as its goal a “global effort to ensure the opportunity for children and youth to be evangelized and discipled in Christ.” It claims Awana groups in 12 000 US churches and 8000 churches in 110 other countries. Awana is an acronym from the first letters of each word in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed”. Program levels include Puggles (ages 2-3), Cubbies (preschool), Sparks (grades K-2), Truth & Training (T&T, grades 3-6), Trek (middle school), Journey (high school
Here is the problem that I have with the AWANAs - great program but it’s focus is not on survival skills. The BSA did have that focus very much and I am struggling to find an organization that provides similar skills training.
The AWANAs programs that I have seen locally seem to never go camping, fishing, hunting etc. It’s all about Sunday school and it seems to be targeted to younger kids.
The more they offer, the heavier the collection plates
Thank you for sharing.
LOL. I never met anyone who knew about AWANA.
I was in AWANA for two years.
Even got into a fight over the prettiest girl in church with the pastors son.
My son was in Royal Rangers for many years great program!
Unfortunate in one regard. But this is an opportunity to rebuild the organization after it completely collapses, so it could be a blessing in disguise.
They've had leftist board members and officials for a while. This purge may be the healthiest thing to happen in the American Boy Scout's history.
It wasn't the Baptists who left the Scouts ... it was the Scouts who left Christian standards of morals, ethics and decency!
The BSA has been under attack by the homo groups for years, and still survived, in spite of the attacks. Giving in sealed their. fate. I suspect that Christian churches will form their own org eventually. My church formed its own, on a small scale.
Every Christian family I’ve talked to are making plans to exit the BSA.
Some are “ this close to Eagle and are going to stick it out until they’re done. I guess they have 6 mo before this policy goes into effect?
I don't blame your friends for leaving the BSA, as I would encourage anyone else out there to do the same.
They didn’t have survival skills in general but, our church thought they should include skills in their curriculum.
Not even close to Baby Sitters of Amerika but, they did do some.
I taught others how to start fires when we camping on an AWANA expedition.
I had already been in BSA and had many of the skills taught mastered.
now that’s funny
we (GS) were never chartered through churches
They need to understand that if they go and form another group, say “Heritage Scouts” or something,
that the left and homos will attack them as well.
Well... did you win?
” Every Christian family Ive talked to are making plans to exit the BSA.”
No reason to stay.
Kicked his butt.
Won the battle lost the war.
Bonnie Bandera stuck with the pastors son.
The problem is that the best separate organization for boys just recently bowed to the god of this world and gave in to homosexuality. Of course, judging from recent activity in gay pride groups, it wasn’t nearly enough for them. Boy Scouts leadership should have learned right away that it was the wrong decision, but that won’t happen.
I don’t know what you mean by “chartered”.
Maybe some day you can have a rematch and lose on purpose. But Bonnie isn’t likely to be so bonnie by this time, I imagine.
But under duress.
Don't forget that part.
Check out Brigades.
There are a lot of “Brigades” in Google. Can you point me to a URL?
” the majority if Christian churches fully support homosexuality and gay marriage, many have homosexual clergy and youth workers, and some even living with their partners “
How can any Church or religion be a part of subjecting children to the perversion of homosexuality?
“The BSA committed suicide. It will be insolvent inside a year.”
The BSA was in an unwinnable situation. They fought all the way to the Supreme Court and won, but that unleashed the fanatics to relentlessly attack its sponsors. Stay the course, no sponsors, no money. Change course to make sponsors happy, everyone pulls their kids out. Either way they were doomed. This of course is not a problem for the fanatics that attacked the BSA. They never cared about scouting. They pretented to so they could work to destroy it from the inside. The main goal all along was to destroy the BSA since it was a traditional American organization and it opposed them.
Boys’ Brigade, The
The Boys’ Brigade works for the advancement of Christ’s kingdom among boys and the promotion of habits of obedience, reverence, discipline, self respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness. The Boys’ Brigade is the oldest uniformed youth organisation in the world. It was founded in 1883. It is a Christian youth organisation for boys aged 6 - 18. Based in the United Kingdom.
Two questions: Where do you live and is the Christian world allowed to send missionaries there?
” This of course is not a problem for the fanatics that attacked the BSA. They never cared about scouting. They pretented to so they could work to destroy it from the inside. The main goal all along was to destroy the BSA since it was a traditional American organization and it opposed them.”
There is likely a lot of truth to this. I heard the org was being infiltrated over a number of years.
well, I am a former Methodist (check)
I come from a town with a homosexual woman as Lutheran pastor, she took off Christmas week to go on cruise with her girlfriend (check)
I could have gone down the street to the UCC but ... “all paths lead to God” uh no thanks (check)
The Presbys have a nice church, and the pastor had a very attractive wife and nice family but a homosexual prostitute he met in the big city beat him up pretty bad (check)
Now I go to Mass every week but haven’t made the plunge yet
Good for them.
ask the Catholic Church hierarchy that protected a legion of pedophiles
At least it was against doctrine and not part of it like in a lot of the protestant churches
Baptists don’t have ‘Mass’..........
There will be plenty of money coming in to keep the BSA around from Hollywood and George Soros types.
Ok, that seems to be more of what I’m looking for BUT, they are a UK based organization. I wonder if there is any prominent Christian leaders that would be willing to establish a US based organization of similar construction and purpose.
I wonder if it would be possible to get the Focus on Family group involved.
