Boy Scouts of America was founded in 1910 as part of the international scouting movement.
BSA is an organization and program which strives to “…build character, train them [young people] in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develop personal fitness.”
The Boy Scout Oath affirms the underpinnings as well as character goal of the scouting program:
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.
The BSA is under attack by homosexual activist groups pressuring the organization to abandon its core values, and allow membership of and leadership by homosexuals. As a private organization, predicated upon sound moral principles, the removal of those timeless values would eradicate the Scouts’ very reason for being.
