In 2012, Jim Turley, current president of the Boy Scouts of America, was the first member of the Executive Board to call for inviting boys struggling or identifying as homosexuals to become part of the program. Shortly thereafter, Boy Scouts executives caved to LGBTQ persistent pressure to be "gay affirming" and overhauled the over 100-year-old organization’s mission to include anyone endorsing and celebrating a lifestyle sacred scripture calls “moral impurity, degrading, shameless, indecent and unnatural” (Romans 1:24–27).
This is not bigotry - it is Bible. It may not be politically correct but it is fidelity to God's design for men and women, marriage and family. For those struggling with and confused with same-sex temptation, God's remedy is available to all and His grace sets those ensnared free!
As predicted, once the floodgates opened to boys wrestling with homosexual urges and openly gay troop leaders, multitudes grieved and began departing. Now the lid is off as over 800 clients have identified 350 abusers and the Scouts confidential records, known internally as "the perversion files" are being examined. Bankruptcy is under consideration.
USA Today stated the complaint in a front page article: "It's apparent that the Boy Scouts Defendants continue to hide the true nature of the cover-up and the extent of the pedophilia epidemic within their organizations because the vast majority of new victims coming forward involve claims of abuse at the hands of pedophiles who are not yet identified by the Boy Scouts of America" (8/7/19).
