Having been held hostage by monied interests demanding all things LGBT, BSA now suffers from a severe case of Stockholm Syndrome. In its most recent ruling, allowing delusional girls to gain membership by claiming to be boys, Boy Scouts of America has lurched into an institutional psychosis from which it will never recover.

In the prior rulings, BSA opened the door to gay scouts and then to gay leaders. There was a significant exodus by scouts and scouters who saw where this was headed and decided not to stick around for the show. At the time, equally principled people who stayed were willing to give it time and to work for keeping the focus on the program, and to ensure that the program content was not hijacked by discussions dealing with sex and sexual orientation. The most recent ruling is a game changer.

In any troop where a delusional girl is granted admittance, every boy will now be forced to welcome her, work with her, and play along with her delusional psychosis. Therein lies the great difference. If the homosexual issue could be papered over with assurances that the rest of the boys would not be affected, now healthy boys must accept and participate in the severest form of delusional ideation on pain of retribution, as certainly their “Scout Spirit,” a requirement for every level of rank advancement, will come into question. Their healthy responses to psychosis in their midst will be held against them as hatred, bigotry, and intolerance; all the things scouting stands against. These will be the lucky scouts.

The most tragic of all scouts will be those who are raised and inculturated to see no problem with boyhood and masculinity as not being rooted first in biology. It will not go well for a boy to be told that a female body must be accepted as male if that’s what the female says. So the very idea of maleness and masculinity is no longer transmitted in BSA by men to boys, but by psychotic girls to boys through the men who will surrender all for…

What?

With yesterday’s ruling BSA sold out the very identity of its member boys and leaders. Pound for pound, a psychotic girl is every bit as male as a healthy boy. That’s the new message.

That’s the new brand.

But it won’t end there. Be prepared for the lawsuits from parents of healthy girls who want admittance to Boy Scouting because Girl Scouting isn’t what they want. Be prepared for these parents to complain that BSA discriminates against healthy biological females by only accepting deluded females. Then BSA will have to open to being fully coed, and a once-great program for boys to learn the ways of men will have been destroyed forever. That said, there is always hope.

Trail Life USA is a solid new program modeled heavily on the BSA program, and started in response to the homosexual decisions in BSA. It is Christian, and populated by many of the scouts and scouters who left BSA. Check them out.

As for BSA, it will go on in name, but this betrayal of boys has forever changed the very DNA of the organization. As we know from genetics, changes in genetic composition are mutations, and they rarely portend good things to come.

Since this blog began seven years ago, the power of social media to change the world for the better has made itself clear time and time again. So many faith-filled people here and on Facebook have gathered, shared advice, shared wisdom, and most importantly, shared prayers for one another. Miracles have happened, and lives have been changed.

On December 13, two weeks ago, a mother reached out on Facebook with a request for prayers for her fifth child, who was in her 20th week of gestation, and being given only a few more weeks of life by her doctors. It seems her fluids were low and the doctor was recommending terminating the pregnancy. A simple sharing of that request elicited hundreds of responses from a mighty host of prayer warriors. Also, many women stepped forward to share their own similar experiences and the stories of live births all around with no complications. They even shared with the mother, Mary, a support group for women with the same condition!

Then, a simple referral to Dr. Donna Harrison, Executive Director of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, produced referrals to specialists in Mary’s area who assured her that there was a way forward for little Veronica Rose, and recommended a course of action.

Prayer. Support. Hope.

An ocean of love for a mother who has never met the hundreds who have lifted her and little Veronica Rose in prayer. It is the Body of Christ at its finest. Veronica Rose continues to thrive in the safety and security of her loving mother’s womb, now at 22 weeks.

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”   ~Jeremiah 29:11

With so many good people surrounding this mother and child with their love, there is nothing but hope in a bright future for Veronica Rose.

We’ll continue to keep her in our prayers.

Healing is the buzzword today. We are being told that the nation is terribly divided and much in need of healing. Certainly the constituencies behind yesterday’s historic presidential election are many and varied, running the gamut from economic to moral and social issues. Each constituency had in Hillary Clinton’s camp a polar opposite constituency. So, the order of the day is to bring both sides together.

The question of the day is, “How?”

The nation is divided along lines that are, in many cases, simply irreconcilable. The Obama/Clinton camp has had a wild and heady eight-year ride on abortion, gay marriage, transgender social engineering, redefining freedom of speech and religion, just to name a few. Indeed, Christian bakers, florists and wedding photographers have had their lives and livelihoods destroyed because they refused to participate in gay weddings. Our daughters have had all restrictions on access to their bathrooms, locker rooms and showers in school lifted under the rubric of transgender rights, and have seen their own rights vitiated. The same for our women and girls in public restrooms.

Yes, it has been a heady time for the left. When in power, they have utilized the levers of power to advance their agenda. When blocked by legislatures, they have used executive orders. When blocked at the polls, they have used the courts.

Now the center of gravity and power has been shifted, and count on the left to now use shaming and the subtle threat of unrest to arm-twist us into capitulation.

Heads they win. Tails we lose.

This isn’t civility or the comity that begets a just and lasting peace. When freedoms specifically articulated in the Constitution are abrogated in favor of freedoms invented out of nothingness, neither the political system established by that constitution, nor the domestic peace and tranquility it was designed to promote have a chance of survival. In the give and take of politics, a black man was given an historic opportunity to lead, to put behind him, and the rest of the nation, the dark legacy of oppression. He did little more than substitute one oppression with another, all in the name of eradicating oppression, while gutting the First Amendment.

We will now be told that the only path to peace is to remain on the path to civil unrest. We will be called intolerant, and we should embrace the moniker as wholeheartedly and whimsically as many embraced being “Deplorables,” for “Tolerance” is a false virtue. The nation was not founded upon the principle of a larger demographic putting up with the presence of another. We were founded on the principles of freedom and respect.

But freedom is not license to do as one wishes, but rather it is having the ability to do what one ought to do.

These past eight years have seen all manner of rights trampled in the name of openness, tolerance, respect, inclusivity, etc. Justice demands that those rights be restored. That will mean that certain intrusions will not be tolerated:

Artisans may choose the venues in which they will participate, and in which they will not.

Women and girls will need the right to privacy restored.

The unborn will need the right to life protected.

People will need the right to actually live their faith in the public square, and not have the First Amendment watered down to the right of belief without the right to live those beliefs.

This means that the intolerance of the left will no longer be tolerated. They have for too long dictated rights and how the rest of us live our lives, all in contravention of constitutional provisions to the contrary.

If there is to be any peace going forward, these ill-gotten gains need to be walked back, and for the first time in a long time, the left will have to bend.

Tonight we pray simply that Thomas’spinal cord heals, that either by divine intervention, or through enhanced understanding and therapy, that his neurons regenerate fully and completely, and that neither Thomas, his family, nor any so affected through injury will ever cease to live in hope, sustained by love, and animated by faith.
