On Transgenders, the Boy Scouts Did What I Predicted They Would

In June of 2013, I wrote:
To encourage his demonic protégé, Screwtape explained to Wormwood, “It does not matter how small the sins are, provided that their cumulative effect is to edge the man away from the Light and out into the Nothing…Indeed, the safest road to Hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”

With the Boy Scouts of America’s (B.S.A.) decision to allow young gays into their ranks, another signpost warning against the sin of homosexuality has been removed.
The piece goes on to note that,
In 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Boy Scouts had the Constitutional right to exclude gay members. This was because, as the Court concluded, opposition to homosexuality is part of the organization’s “expressive message.” Part of the Scout Oath states that Scouts will keep themselves “physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” The Majority opinion in the 2000 ruling noted that the Scouts “teach that homosexual conduct is not morally straight,” and that it does “not want to promote homosexual conduct as a legitimate form of behavior.”
In other words, no less than the U.S. Supreme Court had protected the Boy Scouts from the homosexual agenda. Yet, in 2013 the Boy Scouts chose to surrender and become citizens of the City of Man instead of the City of God.

At the end of the piece, I concluded:
Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have granted legal rights to “transgender” people. In Colorado, the parents of a 6-year-old boy, who now, supposedly, wants to be a girl, are suing their school district for not allowing him to use the girls’ bathroom. 
Radical Massachusetts laws are requiring schools to allow students who “identify” as the opposite sex to use whichever bathroom, locker room, and sports teams they choose. In addition, the Massachusetts law (ironically!) allows no tolerance for students who are uncomfortable with the transgender directives. They are to be “re-educated,” says pro-family advocate Brian Camenker. 
Thus, how long will it be before the Boy Scouts are again in court? This time it will be a couple (probably same-sex) who wants their young girl—who has decided that she wants to be a boy—in the name of “tolerance” to be able to join the Boy Scouts. However, the fight won’t last 23 years in this case. After all, the next moral compromise will be easier than the previous one.
Of course, not to be outdone, as I noted in 2015, it was the Girl Scouts who first caved to the transgender dogma of the homosexual agenda. The Boy Scouts are only now catching up. Instead of waiting on a lawsuit, it seems the Boy Scouts have gotten the hang of capitulating to the homosexual agenda, and on the gender-confused, did exactly what I thought they would. As Todd Starnes wrote today, 
The Boy Scouts of America sacrificed its last vestige of integrity on the altar of political correctness. 
On Monday, the BSA announced that girls who identify as boys will now be allowed to join the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts—marking a complete capitulation to the gender and sex revolutionaries. 
As I wrote in The Deplorables Guide to Making America Great Again, the time has come for every church and every parent in America to sever ties with the Boy Scouts. 
Though I was never involved in scouting, I've always been an enthusiastic outdoorsman and greatly respected the mission of the Boy Scouts. That respect was waning years ago, and is now completely gone. I have three boys and would NEVER allow them to participate in an organization so "Physically Ignorant, Mentally Lazy, and Morally Lost."
