Doesn’t sound like the end of the BSA at all.
They’re pushing the decision lower in the organization. Smart move ... I’d guess we won’t be seeing a lot of troops, packs, dens etc that choose to have homosexual leaders, but it insulates the National organization from the controversy.
In fact, it may very well shine a clear light on the limits of the gay movement and it’s agenda. When local organizations don’t stampede to allow gay leaders it’s going to show just how limited the movement really is.
Not sure I believe the MSM story but if true ...
Some of my dues and fundraiser proceeds go to the national organization. Even if they push the choice to the local level, I will still be forced to support the national organization that chose to punt.
If this were the national policy to just leave it up to the locals that would bring in the pedophiles like nothing you've ever seen.
Pushing it down to Councils is NOT a good idea at all. The BSA is a national affiliate of a worldwide movement. In the US, the BSA sets out national policies, national standards, and a national brand.
What the Councils do will ultimately reflect on the national org anyway. The press is going to see to it.
