Mormons to drop Scouting as part of new global initiative
Deseret News ^ | 5/8/2018 | Tad Walch

The LDS Church is ending its relationship with the Boy Scouts of America. The expiration date for the remarkably robust, 105-year alliance is Dec. 31, 2019, according to a joint statement released Tuesday night by BSA and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The decision by LDS leaders is part of a broader restructuring of the church’s programs for all Mormon children ages 8 to 18.

Praise the Lord for every county or state that stands against the evil of liberalism.

I grew up in a family of scouts. Pulled my oldest son years ago, due to leftist indoctrination. My other sons will not be partaking. Beyond pathetic!!!

Had three boys in Scouts. One Eagle. Before the homo garbage. It was the last best times.

My kids had a lot of fun, learned a lot, and camped so much.

On to Boys Brigade or similar now. The Boy Scouts are no more.

After the Left has destroyed all of our institutions of morality, what will they go after next?

How sad to see this formerly wonderful organization succumb to who I often call “the termites”. They are tireless in their efforts to degrade society, eating away at the Christian foundation of our republic.

When I was young, there was a Boy Scout Christian-equivalent but I can’t recall what it was named. I only remember the girls counterpart organization was called Pioneer Girls. I wonder if they are still around all these many years later.

Foolish.
Mormons do not need to isolate themselves further.

In the Southern Baptist churches, the Royal Ambassadors is a para-scouting organization that I participated in as a child. In the Assemblies of God, the Royal Rangers is a similar counterpart to scouting.

Today, there are Trail Life USA and several other Christian-based groups for boys.

I haven’t followed up, but I wonder how well that group that set out to “replace” the BSA (when BSA started going south), is doing. Trailblazers? Forgot the name.

I grew up when Scouts was a great program.

I was in the Scouts, and made Life (one stage shy of Eagle) and was in the Order of the Arrow.

It was a very good program. Back then.

Hard to recognize what they have turned it into, frankly.

Grew up in Wisconsin. We did a camping trip ounce a month, all year long! Learned a lot. Started doing more family trips to teach my kids outdoor skills. Still have all of the old books, OA sash, Brownsea stuff, ect.

Time for men to be DAD’S! They are our kids!! Do not give them to the perverted left!!!

There was a ranger organization of some sort that I tinkered with for a time back in the late 80’s. Bad leadership, I bailed. Hard to keep track in todays crazy world.

Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell has rolled over in his grave with many others. Very sad!!

It was about Morals and Character!

There are no queers or girls with boys as young men in that equation!

It’s Trail Life USA. I’m involved. We’re obviously smaller but much closer to the vision of Baden Powell as a Christian based outdoor adventure organization for boys.

vis-a-vis Christian Service Brigade.

Apparently they split apart.

Yes I’m sure Trail Life is another good alternative.

My inclination would be to put my time and kid(s) into these alternative organizations rather than try to call Boy Scouts to account. They’ve had it.
