Liberal Agenda



The Boy Scouts of America just announced that they are changing their name to “Scouts BSA,” and will soon welcome girls into its ranks.  Since 1910, this All-American organization has helped millions of boys become honest, self-confident, civic-minded young men.  This move not only changes their focus and mission forever, but is likely to result in further declines in participation by boys.  [Boy Scouts lost 300,000 participating boys since 2013.]


“Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls,” Sylvia Acevedo, the Girl Scouts’ CEO, said.  “We are, and will remain, the first choice for girls and parents who want to provide their girls opportunities to build new skills…and grow into happy, successful, civically engaged adults.”


Until age 3, children play together and interact with children of both genders.  At about age 3, they naturally begin to gravitate to children of their same gender.  At that age children start to realize that boys & girls are different.

Boys naturally identify with other boys, and girls naturally identify with other girls, and feel more comfortable around kids of their own gender.  This is a natural, healthy stage in childhood development.  Interacting with other boys and with adult men helps boys develop in a positive way.

Boys without a father figure in their household are especially in need of strong male role models.  No doubt the increase in troubled behavior by boys in recent years is directly related to the significant rise in out-of-wedlock births in the last few decades.  [In 1969 the out-of-wedlock birthrate was 5%.  Currently it averages 30%, higher in some communities (black, hispanics), lower in some communities (“white”).  Moreover, girls need opportunities to socialize with other girls and to be mentored by women, which they have received for generations from Girl Scouts and Campfire Girls.

This is not discrimination.  This is common sense.


This change comes at a time with America’s boys and men are hurting like never before:Men are three times as likely to commit suicide than women.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse reveals that men are more likely to abuse drugs than women.  One in 5 men and one in 12 women develop alcohol dependence during their lives.

Boys are more likely to drop out of high school, and less likely to attend college.

Men are more likely to be unemployed than women.  As the Trump economic boom was just getting started in March 2017, the unemployment rate for men was 4.6%.  For women it was 4.3%.  At the height of the Bush/Obama recession the unemployment rate for men was over 10%, and 8.6 % for women.

In the United States men and boys are hurting, and now one more resource is being taken from them.


On January 24, 1908, the Boy Scouts movement began in England with the publication of the first installment of Robert Baden-Powell’s Scouting for Boys.   Baden-Powell was a well-known military hero in England.

Boys loved the lessons on tracking & observation, and organized elaborate games using the book.  Hearing this, Baden-Powell wrote a nonmilitary field manual for adolescent boys that also emphasized the importance of morality and good deeds.

Baden-Powell first decided to try out his ideas on a group of boys.  He took a diverse group of 21 adolescent boys to an island where they set up camp for two weeks.  With the aid of other instructors, he taught the boys about camping, observation, deduction, woodcraft, boating, lifesaving, patriotism, and chivalry.  The first Boy Scouts meeting was a great success.

With this success under his belt, Baden-Powell set up a central Boy Scouts office, which registered new Scouts.  By the end of 1908, there were 60,000 Boy Scouts, and troops began springing up in British Commonwealth countries across the globe.  In September 1909, the first national Boy Scout meeting was held in London, and 10,000 Scouts showed up, including a group of uniformed girls who called themselves the Girl Scouts.  In 1910, Baden-Powell organized the Girl Guides as a separate organization.


In 1909 Chicago publisher William Boyce was lost in the fog when a Boy Scout came to his aid.  After guiding Boyce to his destination, the boy refused a tip, explaining that, as a Boy Scout, he would not accept payment for doing a good deed.

This gesture inspired Boyce to organize several regional U.S. youth organizations, specifically the Woodcraft Indians and the Sons of Daniel Boone, into the Boy Scouts of America, which was incorporated on February 8, 1910.  The movement soon spread throughout the USA.  In 1912, Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts of America in Savannah, Georgia.

At a time when public schools are teaching boys that they were NOT born boys, that someone “assigned” the gender of “boys” to them.  They are being taught that they can choose their own gender.  With this transgendering trend in full bloom, boys need the “old” Boy Scouts of America more than ever.

Boy Scout Oath or Promise

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, mentally awake and morally straight.

Note that the Boy Scout Oath has traditionally been considered to have three promises. Those three promises are delineated by the semicolons in the Oath, which divide it into three clauses. The three promises of the Scout Oath are, therefore:

  • Duty to God and country,
  • Duty to other people, and
  • Duty to self

DUTY TO GOD AND COUNTRY: Your family and religious leaders teach you to know and serve God. By following these teachings, you do your duty to God.

Men and women of the past worked to make America great, and many gave their lives for their country. By being a good family member and a good citizen, by working for your country’s good and obeying its laws, you do your duty to your country. Obeying the Scout Law means living by its 12 points.

DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE: Many people need help. A cheery smile and a helping hand make life easier for others. By doing a Good Turn daily and helping when you’re needed, you prove yourself a Scout and do your part to make this a better world.

DUTY TO SELF: Keeping yourself physically strong means taking care of your body. Eat the right foods and build your strength. Staying mentally awake means learn all you can, be curious, and ask questions. Being morally straight means to live your life with honesty, to be clean in your speech and actions, and to be a person of strong character.
