We cannot surrender simply because the perverts won one battle.
"Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty
to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
and morally straight.
Surrendering BSA to perversion is not doing my duty to God or to my country, and it is the opposite of helping other people and keeping morally straight.
A Scout is:
* and Reverent.
If I am to be Trustworthy and Loyal, how can I abandon boys who have placed their trust in me and refuse to show loyalty to the boys in my Troop?
If I am to be Helpful, Friendly, and Kind, how can I leave these boys vulnerable to the perverts who have been dreaming of this opportunity to take innocent boys into the woods away from their comfort zone for decades?
If I am to be Obedient to God's laws, Brave, Clean, and Reverent, how can I disregard the words of Jesus [Matt 18:5-6] on those who cause those children to stumble, how can I back away from a fight for the safety of the next generation?
No, I'm in this for the children and for the duration. I'll surrender if there is no chance of preserving Scouting as a safe refuge for children, but I will not surrender based on a single betrayal by the leadership.
