In an unprecedented move, the Boy Scouts of America have bowed to political pressure announcing that girls may now be allowed to become Cub Scouts.  Under this new plan, the smallest unit of the organization known as Cub Scouts will be single-gender, with packs of either all-boys or all-girls.

The larger Cub Scout packs are to be given the option to remain single gender or to be inclusive of both genders. The program for older girls is scheduled to start in 2019 and will enable girls to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout, according to a statement issued by the organization following the announcement. The Boy Scouts of America has been an organization for boys since its founding more than 100 years ago.

Michael Surbaugh, chief executive of the Boy Scouts, stated of the decision –


“We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children. The values of Scouting – trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, brave and reverent, for example – are important for both young men and women.”

This follows the announcement from January 2017 in which the group announced after severe political pressure from leftist advocacy groups across the nation to admit “transgender boys”: girls who believe they are boys.

These decisions fly in the face of the Boy Scouts central purpose – the protection and moral development of young boys.

Ben Shapiro said it best when he stated  –


“This essentially destroys the Boy Scouts as an organization. It’s the equivalent of a church stating that anyone who now self-identifies as Christian, even if they show up wearing a yarmulke and denying the divinity of Jesus, must be treated as a Christian. Boys are boys, and girls and girls, and self-identification does not make a girl into a boy.”

This announcement to allow girls to join their ranks was not at all well received by the Girl Scouts of the USA. The GSUSA state this announcement has strained the century-old bond between the two organizations, suggesting the move was economically driven due to financial problems and the necessity to boost revenue for the Boy Scouts. Just a few months ago back in August the president of the Girl Scouts accused the Boy Scouts of seeking to covertly recruit girls into their programs.

Prior to this announcement, girls were able to participate in four scouting programs through the Boy Scout umbrella –

GSUSA President Kathy Hopinkah Hannan wrote in a letter to the BSA’s president, AT&T Chairman Randall Stephenson –

“I formally request that your organization stay focused on serving the 90 percent of American boys not currently participating in Boy Scouts … and not consider expanding to recruit girls.”

The Boy Scouts are just 2 years older than the GSUSA with the Boy Scouts being founded in 2010 and the GSUSA in 2012. Both organizations have seen a significant drop in membership in recent years.  Many attribute that drop to leftist pressures on the groups to conform to politically correct standards – allowing in homosexual or transgender leadership, an increase in anti-Christian values taught by the groups originally founded as Christian organizations, a perception that the groups are too old fashioned and therefore outdated, competition from youth sports leagues, and 2 parent working households resulting in a lack of time. There have also been past allegations of molestation and preying upon children by some individuals in leadership within the organization.

As of March 2017, GSUSA reported 1,566,671 youth members and 749,008 adult members, down from just over 2 million youth members and about 800,000 adult members in 2014. The Boy Scouts say current youth participation is about 2.35 million, down from 2.6 million in 2013 and more than 4 million in peak years of the past.
