Alternatives to BSA, encourage your church to drop its charter
Compromised Values, Compromised Value - The moral foundations of the BSA have crumbled
May 28, 2013
I want to thank you for standing with us on the Boy Scout issue. Like you, we were extremely disappointed when we learned the BSA did the unimaginable and chose to allow openly homosexual boys to become Boy Scouts. The Scout motto is to be "morally straight." This is neither moral or straight. Adult leaders are the ones who voted here. They let the boys down bigtime.
But the implications of this decision go much deeper. Because the BSA has opened the doors to "sexual preference," it is simply a matter of time before those with a variety of unnatural behaviors apply for membership.
Already, the push is being made to allow homosexual leaders. Within 24 hours of the decision, activist groups were demanding the BSA expand its gay policy. They will be relentless until the BSA caves again. You can expect this will happen very soon.
It will become mandatory on January 1, 2014, that all BSA sponsors - including churches - allow open and practicing homosexuals to join. Churches that refuse could face lawsuits and public protests.
I encourage you to continue to take a stand with us. The BSA has made its decision, now make yours by taking these immediate actions:
- If you are in scouting, or have a son or grandson in scouting, show your convictions by resigning from the organization. Your dropped membership will send a strong message that your values are steadfast, faithful, and unchangeable.
- If your church charters a scouting unit, contact the pastor and scouting committee members. Urge the church to drop the charter based on the truth of God's word and Christian values.
- Find an alternative to the BSA. We have compiled a list of faith-based organizations that promote scouting-type activities from a Christian perspective.
NOTE: OnMyHonor.Net, along with other like-minded organizations, parents and BSA members, has announced a coalition meeting that will take place next month in Louisville, Kentucky, to discuss the creation of a new character development organization for boys.
