GROSS: Boy Scouts to Hand Out Condoms at World Jamboree
In yet another cave to progressive cultural rot, a Boy Scouts affiliate organization will be requiring that contraceptives be provided to Scout members at their largest annual convention.
“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,'” according to the Washington Times. “Heads of Contingent must be informed in advance and made aware of their responsibility in communicating this policy to their Participants, Unit Leaders, Contingent Staff, and IST in an appropriate way.”
The World Organization of Scouting is organizing the Boy Scout Jamboree.
Big League Politics recently reported that the Boy Scouts will be changing their name to Scouts BSA to accommodate girls who will be joining the newly non-gendered organization. Subsequently the organization lost more than half a million members.
Presumably, the organization will be doling out condoms in preparation for sexual activity between young boys and the newly-invited young girls.
The guidelines in their handbook also have allowances and instruction for the consumption of alcohol in “confined areas” during the event.
“We wanted to land on [a name] that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” said Mike Surbaugh, Chief Scout Executive. “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”
The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will take place West Virginia from July 21 to August 1. It is a 12-day hiking and outdoor adventure.
The age range for the Boy Scouts is 11-18. To state the obvious, there is no reason for an 11-year-old boy should need to a condom at an outdoor Scout convention (or anytime, for that matter).
The Scouts appear hell-bent on scrapping the traditional American values upon which the organization was founded and replacing them with progressive poison. But those who hold traditional values sacrosanct appear to be fighting back.
The Church of the Latter Day Saints, known commonly as Mormons, have already severed ties with the Scouts. The Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC) strongly rebuked the group in a press release.
The FFPC released a quote from John Stemberger, chairman of the board of Trail Life USA, which is a competitor to the Boy Scouts that resembles the Scouts pre-progressivism.
“In light of the mandatory condom policy, it is not clear how far down the rabbit hole the Boy Scouts will continue to fall. With the addition of condoms and alcohol, the World Jamboree is starting to sound more like a 1960s Woodstock festival rather than a campout that parents would want to send their children to! All of this should be deeply disturbing to the churches that are chartering Boy Scout Troops. 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.”
It does not look like the Scouts will right the ship anytime soon. More likely, they will descend into progressive oblivion first.
