The association between the Boy Scouts of America and Norman Rockwell spanned more than six decades, yielding dozens of commissioned coming-of-age portraits that evoke virtue, bravery and Americana.
But now faced with tens of thousands of sex-abuse claims, the debt-saddled organization is poised to do the unthinkable: Sell its collection of Rockwell’s art.

How did that work out for you?
So let me get this straight. The BSA is sued for child molesters in their ranks but have to have fruitcakes as scout leaders. Got it.
Probably worked out exactly the way his trial lawyer friends intended it to. I just wonder if he gets a spiff off every case.
Is this a great country or what?!
Thank you Dr Gates. A pedophile enabler.
Oh noess! Rockwell is a dead white male whose subjects were predominantly white. There must be a racism claim in there somewhere to force those paintings into some dark museum corner never to be seen again.
The BSA died years ago when it officially abandoned biblical principles of morality by endorsing homosexuality.
Organized Christian religion in the West is being ruined by homosexuals posing as clergy much the way the Boy Scouts was ruined by homosexuals posing as Scoutmasters and being allowed leadership positions. Norman Rockwell would not want his work in the hands of such an organization.
BSA cut them loose to fend for themselves. Made it easy work for homosexual groups to pick off the troops one at a time.
There is no such entity as the “Boy Scouts”. There was at one time, my son is an Eagle Scout. My grandson will not be.
When they’re selling the artwork, you KNOW they’re in trouble!
"The Right Way"
"On My Honor"
"I Will Do My Best"
I'm waiting for the Kancel Kulture Klowns to declare Rockwell as just another entitled white racisist.
The Los Angeles archdiocese, which serves four million Catholics, reached a $660m civil settlement in 2007 with more than 500 victims of child molestation.
The dioceses funded their share by selling church property, reducing staff and, in at least one case, soliciting contributions from priests and lay Catholics.
In California alone, financial settlements from decades-old abuse cases exceeded $1.8 billion after the statute of limitations was lifted for one year.
Maybe this is why they wish to bring in millions more immigrants from Catholic countries like Mexico and those in Central America, to help pay off this tremendous debt.
Whenever an organization (Scouts, religious groups, priesthood) gathers young people together for any reason, rest assured the PERVERTS will begin to circle like vultures trying to see how to get to the kids.
It often means joining the organization, then working your way into a position of power. When they are successful at attacking the kids, it somehow is the organization’s fault for not stopping it.
How do you stop it when you are no longer allowed to keep the perverts out?
When “tolerance” replaces sound judgement based on principle, decadence, rot and ruin inevitably follows. Such rot and ruin has affected virtually all institutions where homosexuals are “tolerated”. Hint: Jesus did not “tolerate” the moneychangers at the Temple. He judged and took definitive action.
I see what you did there...
It's 2021 and there is still no Buggery Merit badge! How come?
“So the government forces the Boy Scouts to use homosexual men to lead overnight camping trips with young boys and when the homosexual man follows through on his obviously uncontrollable sexual urge the Boy Scouts are sued into bankruptcy and subjected to public condemnation because they used homosexual men to lead overnight camping trips with young boys.
Is this a great country or what?!”
Sadly, low info Democrat voting drones will never be exposed to content like you provide, and will thus never be subjected to having to process the (hilarious) self obvious consequences of such madness. Not, — given the state of education in this country — that most would likely be capable of such a mental exercise, even if exposed.
It’s nice to dream about them (low info crowd) getting such exposure, but given the pathway into their inner thoughts is controlled by the MSM we know they’ll never have the opportunity.
Conservatives will likely never again have the kind of power to influence thought.
Thus, the steady march into an insane world shall continue until the Lord comes.
The message of that painting is lost on our modern day witch hunters who find “racism” under every grain of sand on the planet. They just see the word and the child following behind two big white cops. They aren’t capable of or willing to think beyond that.
You are correct.
The next thing you know, these morons will start to think that Dr. Seuss was racist.
