First Boy Scouts allowed openly gay troop leaders.
Then Boy Scouts announced it would allow girls to become scouts.
But parents were outraged when they heard what will be required at the next World Scout Jamboree!
Condoms are to be “readily and easily accessible” at their upcoming World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.
The Washington Times reports:
The World Organization of Scouting Movement handbook requires the host organization to “ensure that condoms are readily and easily accessible for all participants and [International Service Team staff] at a number of locations on the site.”
The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be held in West Virginia from July 21 to Aug. 1. The theme is “Unlock a New World.”
John Stemberger, chairman of the board of Trail Life USA, an alternative scouting organization, said it is “not clear how far down the rabbit hole the Boy Scouts will continue to fall.”
“All of this should be deeply disturbing to the churches that are chartering Boy Scout Troops,” Mr. Stemberger said in a statement posted to the Florida Family Policy Council website. “These policies present a clear youth protection problem that the BSA absolutely refuses to recognize. The fact that they are requiring that condoms be ‘readily accessible’ and are communicating this to everyone — including youth participants — shows that the BSA is both anticipating and facilitating sexual conduct between minors at this event. These policies are both outrageous and completely irresponsible.”
Requiring condoms at the World Scout Jamboree is just the latest shocking announcement that’s beginning to highlight a disturbing trend.
Boy Scouts used to be synonymous with a squeaky clean, reputable lifestyle.
Now that image may be irreparably tarnished.
