Boy Scouts nearing final surrender…… July 14, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, Dallas Diocese, disaster, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, Spiritual Warfare.
…….and descent into Girl Scouts levels of irrelevancy as just another formerly decent agency co-opted by the left’s march through the institutions. And this, with a Supreme Court victory in their pocket expressly “permitting” this private organization to determine who could constitute its membership!
Ah, but the corporations, the corporations were cutting off their funding! And when you’re a bureaucrat administering an organization, any organization, nothing is as close to the sweet meteor of death to your beloved
gravy train organization than threats to FUNDING! So the left has really known what it’s doing when it has coerced, through various unsavory means, many corporations to formalize policies that deliberately discriminate, much more openly and nakedly than they ever did against any perverse/left-wing groups, against those who hold to traditional beliefs.
And so one more vaunted institution dedicated to forming young men in right morality and decency has fallen. There are very, very few left which have not:
The executive committee of the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America has unanimously approved a resolution that would drop the group’s blanket ban on openly gay leaders, a key step that puts the organization on the verge of its second historic shift in three years.
While the proposed change stops short of requiring all units to allow gay leaders, it would dismantle a rule that the group’s president described earlier this year as an existential threat to the 105-year-old institution. [And it is! And once the left is through having its way with the Boy Scouts and has left it broken and meaningless, they’ll move onto something else while a hallowed organization sinks into either Girl Scout type leftist politicization/advocacy, or total irrelevance. Quite a choice you’ve carved out for yourself there! Decent people will increasingly flee the organization in droves]
This resolution, approved on Friday, now heads to the organization’s national executive board. If the group ratifies the change during a meeting July 27, it would become official Scouts policy…… [It won’t be 3 years before the abuse lawsuits start rolling in, which I am convinced is a deliberate part of this campaign. The goal is the destruction of the Boy Scouts.]
…….In a statement, the Scouts cast the proposed shift as the “result of the rapid changes in society and increasing legal challenges at the federal, state, and local levels.”
While the Scouts already faced their own legal threats, there are also new state and local laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation, with gay rights groups saying they are focusing on securing broader legal protections. And the national executive board of the Scouts will consider this resolution just over a month after the Supreme Court ruled that gay couples had a right to marry nationwide, a decision that followed a remarkable surge in public support for gay marriage.
The Scouts were careful to note, however, that the change does not mean that religious chartered organizations — which account for a significant portion of the group’s membership — have to accept gay leaders…… [Oh yes it will very much COME to mean that very soon, with this decision as a sort of precedent to increasingly ostracize and isolate the few holdouts. This decision alone will greatly increase pressure on religious organizations who host scout troops to either disassociate from the organization entirely (best plan) or expect to face heavy pressure to admit open sodomites into leadership positions. All I can say is: Troops of Saint George.]
…..“This change allows Scouting’s members and parents to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families,” the Boy Scouts said in a statement Monday. “This change would also respect the right of religious chartered organizations to continue to choose adult leaders whose beliefs are consistent with their own.” [OH YES, tell me again how long this fig leaf will last, when the last fig leaf (we’ll admit boys who openly admit of perverse desires, but never, EVER adult males as leaders who do the same!) lasted all of 3 years! My stars how strong you are! You never, ever lie to me! And I’m sure you’ll respect all of us in the morning, once you’re done @#$%&*@! us like this!]
Robert Reilly was really hard on the Boy Scouts in his estimable book, and rightly so. He made clear how utterly unnecessary and cowardly their cave was. They chose convenience of funding over principles, big time. The thing is, it’s only been in the last 30-40 years that the Boy Scouts bureaucracy and apparatus has grown into this behemoth that requires millions in funding every year, anyways. Prior to that, the organization existed for decades on much lower levels of funding and generally individual, private donations.
Thus, the entire model of large scale charity/private do good organization operation and funding is open to attack like this. By becoming reliant on corporate sponsorship and large donations from easily co-opted groups like The United Way, an organization – any organization – instantly exposes itself to heavy propagandizing for all manner of things, much of which may be antithetical to its original charter and outlook. Reliance on government funding is even more dangerous. I repeat again that major Church organs, including Catholic Charities, CRS, CCHD, most colleges and universities, and most diocesan schools are heavily dependent on government funding, offsets, etc. They are thus heavily exposed.
He who pays the piper calls the tune. They are coming for the Church as sure as night follows day. Be ready.
