  1. Boy scouts enrollment And membership numbers have steadily been dropping the last few years. The reason ? The organizations pandering to the homosexual agenda. Leaders can be an open practitioner of this disgusting lifestyle. Sadly that opens young children’s minds to recruiting. Even the little boys can claim they are homosexual and be allowed to join. Which is sad considering the parents could do something now to stop or help with their mental illness. The same with the girl scouts. That’s why we’ve stopped buying the cookies and helping both organizations. Sad what America has become because God is not allowed in to help.
