Scouts' Deconstruction Mirroring America's Devolution Saturday, May 18, 2024
GUEST: ROBERT KNIGHT, columnist, The Washington TimesThe deconstruction of the organization formerly known as the Boy Scouts (now called the genderless “Scouting America”) is a microcosm—“a situation regarded as encapsulating in miniature the characteristic qualities or features of something much larger”—of what is taking place in broader American society.What is that? A headlong descent into depravity straight out of Romans 1: “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil;” Romans 1:28-29Robert Knight, The Washington Times columnist and our guest this weekend, writes in his latest column that “More than 80,000 men claim they were sexually abused when they were in the Boy Scouts…and this past March agreed to a $2.4 billion settlement to pay thousands of claims.”The sane response to this horrific abuse would be to greatly strengthen protocol for Scout leaders’ interaction with boys. Instead, the Boy Scouts approved homosexual men to be leaders of boys.The Boy Scouts were once a respected organization that trained boys to be men, in character, in skills, in service. The Scout oath was and still is (but now in lip service only)…“On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”What went wrong with the Boy Scouts that has also gone wrong in broader American society? How can the church and Christian organizations avoid being lured into this deconstruction? Join us as Robert Knight, a former Eagle Scout, explains the sinful compromises that have turned this once respected organization into a cautionary tale of the evils of the woke religion.-------------------------------Related Article:Scouts pay dearly for ‘wokeness,’ double down anyway – May 14, 2024You can sign up to receive Robert Knight’s free weekly column by emailing him: [email protected] Programs:How the Tactics that Sank the Boy Scouts Are Now Aimed at the Church – Feb 29, 2020What Happened to the Boy Scouts and Why It Matters? – March 26, 2018
