1992:‘NAMBLA calls on the Boy Scouts of America to cease its discrimination against openly gay or lesbian persons in the appointment of its scout masters. This will permit scouts to be exposed to a variety of lifestyles and will permit more of those individuals who genuinely wish to serve boys to do so. I feel especially honored to have been asked to alert you of this resolution…I have also been a scout and a scout leader and share with so many in NAMBLA affection for the movement. We recognize, of course, that the action for which we call is inevitable. What a great added contribution your organization will make possible to all the boys and girls who participate in it when you take this step.’ ” Unanimous resolution of the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) at its 16th membership conference, held in Chicago, August 7-9-1992, as reported by Leland Stevenson, Co-Recording Secretary of NAMBLA in the November 1992 edition of the NAMBLA Bulletin.
2023: “The Boy Scouts of America scouting organization is inviting ‘LGBTQ’ advocacy at its national jamboree camp in West Virginia. The advocacy was applauded by LGBTQ advocate Mike De Socio in the Washington Post. ‘There is value in the type of place it is becoming: one where any kid, of any race or gender or sexual orientation, feels at home.’ ” Neil Munro, Breitbart News, July 30, 2023.
There are few culture war losses more emblematic of America’s collapse into depravity than the pederasts’ takeover of the Boy Scouts of American (BSA) in 2013. I suspect there’s a special sub-basement of Hell for traitors to humanity like Obama agents Robert Gates and Rex Tillerson who orchestrated the BSA’s surrender from inside its own boardroom – despite the BSA’s absolute right to reject the LGBT agenda having been strongly vindicated by the United States Supreme Court in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale on June 28, 2000. My article “The Deep State Takedown of the Boy Scouts of America” (published in February of 2020) details the steps in that tragic process.
Around the same time that NAMBLA was (correctly) predicting the BSA’s “inevitable” capitulation to their agenda, I was confronting then presidential candidate Bill Clinton on live television on the matter and, by quickly pressing in with an (unapproved) follow-up question, essentially backed him into a corner on whether the BSA should be forced to embrace homosexuality: he famously said “No, I don’t support that,” an admission which Rush Limbaugh pounced on the next day on his radio show. (That exchange is also highlighted in my above-cited 2020 article.)
It’s hard to believe thirty one years have passed since then – and harder still to cope with the fact that every child born since the Clinton Administration has never known the America of natural family normalcy that existed in my childhood. Many children experienced it personally in their own homes, but collectively as a society they have come of age (probably without recognizing it) during America’s total transition from a Christian cultural worldview to the NAMBLA worldview.
Importantly, British and American Christians had REDEEMED boy scouting from its early roots which in fact aligned more with NAMBLA than with Christianity. Scouting did not begin not with Britain’s Lord Baden Powell in 1907 as is commonly believed but in Germany in the late 1800s with the deeply morally corrupt Wandervogel Movement. By 1912 the German scouting movement was so thoroughly depraved that one of its leaders brazenly published a book titled “The German Wandervogel Movement as an Erotic Phenomenon” which openly defended its culture of pederasty and told German parents they’d just have to get used to it.
After the BSA’s fall to the “gays” in 2013 I published my article “Satan Wins Back the Scouts” which documents the reality of early scouting. Please read it at ScottLively.net. The heavily censored evidence I offer in that piece you will likely not find in any other source. Here is a sample:
“[T]he Wandervoegel offered youth the chance to escape bourgeois German society by retreating back to nature…But how was this accomplished? What made it possible for the lifestyle created within the Wandervoegel to differ significantly from its bourgeois parent? The answer is simple: the Wandervoegel was founded upon homosexual, as opposed to heterosexual sentiments …In order to understand the success of the movement, one must acknowledge the homosexual component of its leaders…Just as the leaders were attracted to the boys, so were the boys attracted to their leaders. In both cases the attraction was sexually based” (Richard Mills, “Gay Roots: Twenty Years of Gay Sunshine,” 1991, pages152-53).
It should be apparent to every open eyed adult that organizations for boys attract pederasts like chickens attract hawks. (I’ve addressed that theme in my article “Desmond, the Boy Scouts and Pedophilia.”)
No one was more conscious of that fact than the founders of the Boy Scouts of America who created history’s best system for the “morally straight” training of boys into men. Indeed, it was that very phrase in the Boy Scout Oath that determined the positive ruling of the Supreme Court in the Dale case:
“On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.”
The Boy Scout Oath is a glimpse back to a world that has been lost to us. No, not lost but stolen by wicked Marxist ideologues intent on destroying Judeo-Christian culture on earth. Today instead of a nationwide consensus that boys and young men should be “morally straight,” we have a nationwide culture war where every child and teen is under relentless mental and spiritual siege by flagrant and militant sexual perverts (or their surrogates) in virtually all the spheres that influence their young lives.
Right before our eyes, and despite our best efforts to prevent it, the Boy Scouts of America has become the Boy Scouts of Gommorica – with a subliminal message for all the boys of America that God is impotent and irrelevant and morality is whatever you want it to be.
But I say these boys are worth fighting for, and that the Christian men and women of this nation should fight back by finding other ways to reach them (such as the Christian alternative called Trail Life with the truth about God, true masculinity and virtue.
