How to earn Welcoming Progressivism badge and lose your soul
The cultural confusion caused by two once-promising youth organizations currently in a legal battle might prompt parents to look elsewhere for trusted guidance.
The Girl Scouts has filed suit against the Boy Scouts after that organization began admitting girls and now calls itself simply Scouts.
The Girl Scouts filed suit in federal court claiming trademark infringement based on a charter from the United States Code but the Boy Scouts have the same type of charter.
It appears both organizations have strayed far from their original concept, says Patti Garibay of American Heritage Girls.
“And I think for the progressive gender differences are just a matter of social constructs and gender blurring is embraced by both organizations,” she observes. “Both organizations now embrace transgenders, and yet when it comes to the almighty dollar, it seems these social constructs become a basis for a lawsuit.”
The now-changed Boy Scouts opened the group to open homosexual scouts and leaders despite that organization covering up years of sexual abuse in what is known as the “Perversion Files” that were safely locked away from public view.
Despite winning a landmark legal case that kept out open homosexuals, the Boy Scouts bowed to new liberal leaders and corporate arm twisting and capitulated. Not soon after, Trail Life USA launched in 2013 with former Boy Scout leaders at the helm.
Trail Life quickly found a partnership with American Heritage Girls, which Garibay — a Girl Scout leader — launched in 1995 after she became alarmed at the leftward drift of the organization and frustrated at leaders who ignored or mocked her warnings.
