Boy Scouts of America files for bankruptcy

Another traditional instituion ruined by the Left and by its own evil-doers.

Ben Feuerherd reports for the New York Post that on Feb. 18, 2020, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Delaware so as to keep operating while thousands of claims of sexual abuse by former members are litigated.

In filing for bankruptcy, all civil suits against the BSA will be suspended, and the organization will avoid lengthy and damaging jury trials in a number of states. However, BSA will likely have to pay victims.

Roger Mosby, the Boy Scouts’ president and chief executive officer, said in a statement:

The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children. hile we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process — with the proposed Trust structure — will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission.

The Boy Scouts have struggled with declining membership and rising costs. According to BSA’s 2018 tax filing, it had $1.4 billion in assets. The bankruptcy filing document, Official Form 201, says BSA has an estimated 1,000 to 5,000 creditors, and liabilities estimated to be $½ billion to $1 billion.

The fact that the sexual abuse began when the BSA began to allow perverted scoutmasters is just another crazy coincidence. They weren’t even called Boy Scouts anymore, too gender binary, they changed the name to Scouts – BSA. More inclusive, all dykes, queers, misfits, and tranny freaks welcome. RIP Boy Scouts. Everything these Satanic creatures touch turns to sh*t. Everything

Well, that has always been Satan’s plan, hasn’t it? Take anything good and clean and turn it into something perverted and evil.

Exactly. The leaders of these organizations used to know not to let homosexuals, dykes and God forbid drag queens and trannies near children- this is their rotten fruit…☠️

This is terrible. Boys need an organization to belong to to learn the kinds of things they don’t teach in school.

I think there is another organization for boys in the old traditional BSA example. Trail Life or something like that. They emphasize clean living and high morals along with camping and fellowship.

Funny how this isn’t happening to the Girl Scouts. I just bought my yearly ration of cookies. I guess it’s OK for girls to have a group to themselves but not boys. I smell a setup.

That’s correct, they pushed to allow girls to join the boy scouts but not the other way around. Girls rock, girls are special. Boys? Pffftt. It very simple really – Male, bad. Toxic. Female, good. Unless the boys are queer. Then they’re special too

Don’t worry, there will be shemale kids joining the Girl Scouts & Brownies soon enough.

I didn’t know that. Of course. Lovely. What better way to empower girls than to indoctrinate them in the idea that they have an absolute right to terminate their pregnancy tissue if it’s inconvenient for them and infringes on their career and lifestyle choices. You go girl

The GSA is owned by Planned Parenthood. These whacko feminist don’t want any males in an all girl group.

Beyond the molestation debacle, the ruination/end began back when the BSA knuckled under LGBT etc agenda for membership/leadership: Our new, young neighbors moved in to rehab a home long-rented or owned by people who “hogged” up the house/grounds. It was the village eyesore in the midst of very nice homes otherwise. The new, young family put their sweat into this house for a yr while living in their RV in the backyard. We were ecstatic to not only have them rehab the home, but that they had young children & were heavily involved in scouting….the father a leader, the “pack”… Read more »

I was a Scout circa 1960,as a matter of fact,my Mom was a Den Mother to our Troop,who consisted of the low-income,the problem kids,the boys the OTHER Troops “chose” not to accept. I remember it as a GREAT experience,and as Joseph said,I learned things there that just aren’t taught anywhere else. Some of the boys we had were on the verge of going afoul of the law even at that young age,but Scouting taught them enough to change their course,and since I knew them all through school up to Graduation from High School,I could see what Scouting did for them.… Read more »

PS….YMCA Indian Guides: I did not involve my children in BSA at certain levels. For some time, we lived/worked at a health clinic on an Indian Reservation in very isolated, rural Utah. The Mormon incarnation of BSA inserted a level/ or grouping not used in any other state in the country—specifically meant to train their scouts at age 12-13 to the “Priesthood” in the Mormon Church. So, we, being non- Mormon, did not subject our child to this stage/group of BSA. However, in those years absent the BSA, we had our child participate in the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Assn.)… Read more »

The Boy Scouts was one of the most important influences in my boyhood and much that I learned there got me through VN years later and I only shot twice for a Silver Star. Last month the BS gathered together and cleaned the property of my next door neighbor. A wealthy AH that didn’t need it and couldn’t have cared less especially when Disabled Vets like myself really could have used the help. The thing that impressed me so NEGATIVELY was that there were more mothers there then there were boys and they were closely supervising everything the little incompetent… Read more »

There is nothing sweeter then to see an organization get woke and cozy up to the left just before it falls into financial ruin. Are you listening Chik-fil-a

A few days ago, i heard the Boy Scouts organization was going down. They kept mentioning predators. But the name was not the real description of the ones committing the crimes. They were homosexual predators or Gay predators. But why not name them properly in the Boy Scouts or the Catholic church. The media and the school protect them as if they are far superior to straight people. But they can sodemize children and hide behind their gayness as non descriptive predators. If the Catholic church and the Boy scouts can be held liable maybe we should hold gay organizations… Read more »

Well, it took Hillary Clinton 30 years to destroy this once great organization, but she finally has.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I hope she burns in hell!
