The BSA’s leftist agenda results in a membership drop from 1.97 million to 762,000.
The BSA announced last week its $850 million settlement with thousands of abuse claimants, the vast majority being from many decades ago.
In January of 2013, in a “Letter to an Eagle Scout,” I responded to the dismay over a proposal by the BSA National Board to remove the membership restriction regarding sexual orientation. In May of that year, the BSA’s national board, under the “leadership” of wealthy corporate types who were completely out of touch with grassroots Scouting values, promoted and implemented a national policy to sponsor homosexuals in Scout troops. It was clear then that the next policy change would be inviting homosexual leaders.
Indeed, in May of 2015, the BSA’s national board announced that it would open its ranks to adult homosexuals, a self-destructive policy that the board officially approved two months later. Of course, it would follow then that in 2017, the BSA’s national board announced that it would open its ranks to “transgendered boys.” ***
So, where does that leave BSA’s grassroots membership across the nation? The BSA’s leftist agenda has resulted in a youth membership drop between 2019 and 2020 of a whopping 43%, from 1.97 million in 2019 to 1.12 million in 2020. And the BSA’s bankruptcy filing records indicate membership is now down to 762,000.
Of course, the decline in the last year has been accelerated by other leftist national BSA policies, including an official letter supporting the Marxist so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement, and now a proposed Eagle-required “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” merit badge.

It’s really a shame what Satan has done to the once noble BSA.
Trail Life USA offers an excellent alternative.
they totally ignore also they allow girls to join the boy scouts
that destroys the boy scouts
its no wonder they are tanking
see you’ll hear the women complain that they took the normal girls out of the girl scouts due to the lesbians there and the overall liberalism there
but the women then demand the boy scouts take in the girls, rather than organize their own girls-only group
they go to the men and demand to be let in
and the cucktard men do it and destroy one of the few extremely positive male only, male specific groups left
Let’s not forget a Bush Cartel member pushed the Boy Scouts over the edge.
They hid pedo abuse for decades.
The Boy Scouts of America were sued to oblivion for the actions of homosexual predators, but you are not allowed to say it.
No other org was sued as many times as the BSA. Every dirtbag lawyer lined up took a crack at that pinata. Eventual the liberals won, destroying it from within and without. Who donated? Who defended them?
"The Boy Scouts of America’s National Council has elected Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, as the organization’s national president. In this volunteer role, Stephenson will lead the National Executive Board, which guides the BSA as we serves 2.3 million youth members. Stephenson – who will serve as the 36th president of the BSA, following former Secretary of Defense Dr. Robert M. Gates ..."
It wasn’t Satan as much as it was the Board of Directors - a who’s who of extremely connected and very very wealthy big boys.
Friendship with the world...
If you value something, don’t turn it over to corporate board members who tend, more often than not, to be soulless prostitutes eager to go along with whatever hare-brained nonsense the popular culture is pushing.
Infiltration, then management of the decline. A microcosm of what happened to America.
It is worse than that. The Left has targeted this organization for a long time. It was their actions that forced the Scouts to accept Gay Scout masters. Their plot to destroy the Scouts worked.
Thank you. The Scout were on their own. And statues of limitation exist for a reason. The feel good resurrection of the statute by a number of states caused this, in many cases for the most mi or actions that cannot be documented decades after the fact
They infect everything. They come in wearing sheeps clothing and destroy everything.
It’s how they do in corporate America and anything else they touch.
IIRC, Limbaugh brought this up and talked about how the gay community sued and forced their way in. Lo and behold, all the problems started.
And I’m thinking that there are more than a few recipients of the checks that nothing happened to and just cashed in. Hell, I was never in the Boy Scouts and used to get solicitations all the time.
Not exactly. The Boy Scouts WON in the Supreme Court on the homo issue. The corporate executives like Gates, Tillerson and several others opened the BSA to homos and homo leaders completely on their own.
When the BSA started simping for corporate and Mormon money, they also handed over all the decision making.
Anytime you have young people gather for any reason, boy scouts, girl scouts, church groups, priesthood, soon you will have the perverts and predators circling trying to find ways to get to them.
Often they find the best way is to join the group, work themselves into a position of authority, and then it begins. When this happens they blame the group.
It does not help when the government forces these groups to accept the perverts.
“IIRC, Limbaugh brought this up and talked about how the gay community sued and forced their way in. Lo and behold, all the problems started.”
Nope. The homos sued and lost. BSA won at the Supreme Court.
With this win in their belt they were seduced by pop culture and corporate money and surrendered all that they had won. The BSA Board did this all by theirselves.
Over 100 years down the toilet.
All the talk about kids not being able to do certain things, it’d be nice to see someone come up with an alternative.
I bet there are enough parents out there with girls that would love to get them into something that teaches them more than selling cookies(which I’m a complete sucker for). Almost like a Valkyrie, where they learn some legit sh*t. I’m thinking there’d be some participation for that.
As for the guys, get a bunch of retired SERE instructors, mechanics, tradesman, cops, fireman, and start teaching them some legit stuff.
A guy I knew in basic training was an Eagle Scout. His scout master guy was a retired Green Beret. He would tell me that when the other kids were learning how to rub two sticks together, his guy was teaching them how to rappel and how to catch/field dress rabbits.
When the BSA fought to keep the perverts out, they won. When they caved, they lost everything—most especially the respect and trust of parents of boys. Why this organization is still in existence is a mystery to me.
Go woke, go broke.
