Homosexuals Mentoring Boys: BSA Makes it Official

In 2013, former WA State Attorney General Rob McKenna led the Washington State delegation to vote in favor of the Boy Scouts of America abolishing their 101 year old policy on allowing gays in the Scouts.

At the time, McKenna told Seattle media, "You know its the right thing to do..." He told the press he also supported dropping the ban on leadership as well.

"You know," he said, "we'll step back and absorb this change and all the good things that will come out of it and then figure out the timing on the next step."

They have figured it out. The timing was this past Monday.

The executive committee announced this week that they have voted unanimously to approve a resolution that would end the BSA's policy prohibiting homosexual leadership in the BSA.

Linda Harvey, president of Mission America, says now that the policy has been changed, "These people will be drawn like this opportunity."

Over reaction?

Even the Los Angles Times says there's already a long running internal problem with sexual abuse within the Boy Scouts of America. Now this?

Linda Harvey told One News Now, "I hate to say it that way---but that's what's going to happen to this opportunity."

Rob McKenna said, "Good things can come out of this."

"There are going to be a few who are unhappy, some people who hold deeply held convictions, and they may pull their kids out," McKenna said---"If they do, that's a real shame."

He was right. But it's more than a "few" who were unhappy.

In fact a new nationally based Christian alternative to Boy Scouts was formed out of those "deeply held convictions" that parents did not want their little boys sleeping in pup tents with openly homosexual kids, and now leaders.

Trail Life USA was born out of BSA's moral failure. It is growing exponentially.

I strongly encourage you pull your sons out of BSA, if you have not already done so, and put them in Trail Life USA.

This is an overview of the organization and what it stands for:

Trail Life USA is a Christian adventure, character, and leadership program for young men. The K-12 program centers on outdoor experiences that build a young man’s skills and allow him to grow on a personal level and as a role model and leader for his peers. Living the Trail Life is a journey established on timeless values derived from the Bible.
Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens.
Our mission is simple and clear: to guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure.
“Walk Worthy”
Colossians 1:10 “… that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;…”
  • On my honor, I will do my best
  • To serve God and my country;
  • To respect authority;
  • To be a good steward of creation;
  • And to treat others as I want to be treated.

The Los Angles Times has run a series of in depth articles about the history of sexual abuse and its cover up in the BSA. It is both revealing and saddening.

Does McKenna and others who have led in this departure from policies based on biblical morality really believe the new policies will make things better?

This is a link to a series of sad stories and the aggressive BSA cover up published by the Los Angeles Times.

Consider this: "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward" (Ps. 127:3).

Let's take care of them.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Pro-Active. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.


  1. I have heard of someone on you tube who pressed the question to many homosexual men about what caused them to be homosexual, and so many told him that they had been abused sexually as child by a male, the great majority of them.

    Wrong thing to do with the BSA.

    1. Ryan Sorba has several excellent You Tube videos on this subject.

  2. This may be the beginning of the end of the BSA. There's another group...Trails something, or something Trails, a religious based group, like the BSA used to be that doesn't allow this sort of thing.

    If the BSA doesn't immediately turn this thing around, this should be the end of the BSA.

  3. anon 5:49-If you read Gary's complete article there is a lot on info about Trail Life USA and a link to their web site.

  4. Homosexuals cannot reproduce, so they must recruit...

    1. Good point. If we can just stop their recruiting, they would disappear after a couple generations. Genius!

  5. I earned the rank of Eagle a long time ago as I will turn 65 this year. This decision goes against everything I was taught that scouting stood for. Allowing this perversion of the natural order to invade scouting demonstrates that the character traits that scouting attempts to teach do not reside in the program any longer. It is sad to see the death of a once good program.

  6. Can it live again? Can it thrive as it once did, and even more so? Something would have to change. I think about Elijah and that valley of dry bones.

  7. I am a happily married heterosexual male. I would consider it to be a major mistake to make me a girl scout leader, especially if my wife were not with me. What man in their right mind would go camping with those beautiful little teenage girl scouts?

    Nobody had trouble seeing the problem here. I would not put myself in the position of being accused of wrong doing with any female. I simply will not be alone with a female I am not related to.

    So why can't people see the problem with sending adults that are sexually attracted to boys out of camp outs for two or three days (and in some cases a week or more)?

    1. Something must have blinded them. And yet they want to promote their nonsense, seeing themselves as fit to be leaders of boys and young men.

  8. I'm not aware that anyone wants to send "adults that are sexually attracted to boys out of camp outs". Those would be pedophiles. Pedophiles can be heterosexual or homosexual, there doesn't seem to a tendency either way. The scouts have strong policies to protect kids from pedophiles such as no adult is allowed to be alone with a scout (ever) and adults must be in separate sleeping quarters.

  9. The Boy Scouts have not done a very good job protecting the boys from pedophiles. Did you read the stories Gary linked to the Los Angeles Times?

    1. I agree, the scouts did a bad job of protecting boys from pedophiles, but that's a separate topic from allowing homosexuals in.

  10. This nation is in need of some restoration of common sense. I've heard it's not so common anymore. I suppose it's uncommon sense now.
