Too late, they capitulated.  They are dropping the "Boy" and are just going with "Scouts".

f**king locust's claim another victim.

No reason for any self-respecting normal heterosexual Judeo-Christian male to have a damn thing to do with that crap!

Go Galt from that sh*t!

  They won't stop ever. First it was gay scout leaders now girls( have nothing against girls) but can we have something that just follows history? Soon we will have the Trans scouts and soon there will be no boys in it.

All we need to do is form up the all-volunteer private unsponsored club for normal heterosexual Judeo-Christian pro-2A people to muster at, no non-members allowed!

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power & of love and of calm, a well-balanced mind, discipline and self-control.

Well,  at least they won't have to hash out the weeks old question of "what bathroom do I use?" 

In the great outdoors,  IT is the bathroom common to all. 

If still using "the buddy system" to access it,  that could make for some interesting "trips to the bathroom",  however.  ::speechless::

"Time for the Boy Scouts to end"

But it won't end. It's lost its raison d'être and the sincere innocence of its original intent but it has (no particular pun intended) its hard core advocates that will keep it on life support long after the heart has given up.

I fully expect the left to find a way to inveigle government subsidies until the erstwhile noble Boy Scouts looks more like the Hitler Youth Øbozo promised us.

Of course. Polls told us Hitlary would win! ::unknowncomic::

And the Boy Scouts of America is dead. That's why it's been renamed.

Mormon Church just announced:

"effective on December 31, 2019, the Church will conclude its relationship as a chartered organization with all Scouting programs around the world. Until then, the intention of the Church is to remain a fully engaged partner in Scouting for boys and young men ages 8-13. We encourage all youth, families, and leaders to continue their active participation and financial support of Scouting until that date. "

Mormons are no small part of the the Scouts.  This is going to mean loosing half of the Scouting membership. The Mormons will be basically starting  their own  faith-based scouting program.

This of course will leave the Boy/Girl/It scouts  free to become the new Hitler Youth

What few of them will remain; the type who are enamored of the 'new social order' aren't having children.

Unless the Mormons' youth org. will not allow those of other religions to join?

I haven't seen any details on it.
If they are smart -- of course they will let anyone join.. but I would  expect your child to get a healthy does of Joseph Smith and Mormon theology along with his knot tying , camping and other Eagle Scout Skill building.

If they were really, really smart, they would make their scouting activities and leadership as secular as possible and let the Mormon boys in the group do the proselytizing ..  but I don't expect they are quite that smart.

I read something along the lines that Mormons will take their new program world wide.  That could be a real nice move on their part.  There's a couple of missionaries in my area.  At least I assume they are, being friendly, polite, and in dress shirt & tie when the temp is 95 and the dew point is 80.   ::laughonfloor::

Anyhow.  Imagine the recruiting tool they could have if they had a version of the Boy Scouts to offer, in Taiwan.  Young city boys having a chance to go camping, something that isn't a big part of the Taiwan culture.  That could potentially be a big draw.

I will be world wide for sure.  Sorry to hear that the mission Presdient there decided on such a harsh dress code.  In a lot of more tropical places the boys get a little more lax dress-code more in line with the local weather. They should have LDS name badges as well.. that is the dead giveaway.. :)

But yes I think a genuine scouting program could benefit any boy,  any where. I hope that is what happens.
