Everything the left touches turns to crap.
Boy Scouts of America may be taking a similar approach as USA Gymnastics to mounting legal fees related to sex abuse lawsuits. According to the Wall Street Journal, the over a century-old nonprofit is considering filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Along with the financially crippling lawsuits, the organization is suffering from dwindling membership, now at around 2.3 million. The nonprofit has attempted to reverse the trend by opening up its programs to girls, including girls who identify as boys, a decision that has resulted in an increasingly ugly public feud between the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts, which likewise faces dwindling numbers.
The organization has also agreed in recent years to allow gay men and lesbians to serve in leadership roles, which in part prompted the Mormon Church to announce in 2017 that it was withdrawing from the organization’s programs for older boys.
