Surprising response to BSA alternative

The new Christian-based alternative to the Boy Scouts is even attracting families who have never associated with the Scout program.

After the Boy Scouts of America voted to permit active homosexuals as members and the focus went to allowing homosexuals to be Scout leaders, Trail Life USA was officially launched January 1st by public demand.

Hancock

"We launched with 500 troops in line to be chartered," spokesman Mark Hancock tells OneNewsNow. "At this point, a little over 250 have completed the process, and we have added another almost 400 troops to that line that we anticipate chartering by the end of this year."

Hancock says the response has been pleasant and unexpected, and he attributes that to all of the publicity about the Boy Scouts' problems.

"It kind of took us by surprise, since a lot of our program materials anticipated that the groups would have had some experience running an outdoor program for boys before," he shares. "But we're thrilled that 40 percent of our troops have never had an outdoor program for boys, which means that we're introducing new families to adventure and leadership and character-building things with a Christ-centered focus."

Trail Life USA already has some exciting summer ventures in the works, so the spokesman concludes that it is important for churches that have decided against the Boy Scouts to understand how they can integrate Trail Life USA into their programs.

 After they make sure there are no gays in their new organization, will they also screen for pedophiles? you know, the men who have families and careers and go to church but also like to have sex with little boys....those guys.

I thought BSA was already Christian based?  So is this just the same thing, but no gays allowed?  Whatever floats their boat, I guess.  Not the kind of exclusive, judgemental group I'd want my kids involved in.

They do that screening at the same time they are screening for the homosexuals.

I don't know, why don't you ask Iggy.   I was responding to her statement with sarcasm.

Seeing how there is no tone button, the sarcasm wasn't evident.

That's great! What is the name again? The Homophobic Scouting Troop? Wherever they go, they will be known as the Homophobes!

I can imagine most of the kids will end up pretty embarrassed later in life.

No. Those guys are a-o.k. because they aren't "real" "homos." Just criminals. Christian ones, at that.
