participants and IST [staff] at a number of locations on the site.
Heads of Contingent must be informed in advance and made aware of
their responsibility in communicating this policy to their
Participants, Unit Leaders, Contingent Staff, and IST in an
appropriate way.” (See Guideline

Scouts own announcement reads as follows:
the first time, a world jamboree will be hosted by three national
Scout organizations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México,
and the Boy Scouts of America. These three distinct cultures will
join together to host the world Scouting community in a celebration
of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship.”
now, that friendship seems to include something like friends with
benefits, because now condoms are required. This is rather a first for
an organization whose age range in America is limited to the range
between 6 to 18 at the most. While World Scouts has a higher top-end age
of 26 (legal adulthood, which at leastlegallyjustifies
this condom rule), the reported problem is that this availability is to
be extended to kids who are not of legal age of consent in the United
States. In West Virginia, this age is 16.

that the Boy Scout Oath has traditionally been considered to have
three promises. Those three promises are delineated by the
semicolons in the Oath, which divide it into three clauses. The
three promises of the Scout Oath are, therefore:

their lives for their country. By being a good family member and a

living by its 12 points:

2018 the wall was finally breached, and now girls may join the
association. In fact, Boy Scouts of America is in fact no more, with a
new name and brand, Scouts BSA, expected to go into force in 2019.
most recent change, having taken effect in late April of this year,
caused no small stir among parents who used to be Scouts in their own
youth. The destruction of this Christianity-based organization and its
history of being attacked and broken down by liberal radicalism was
brought to a seeming culmination with the allowing of girls into the
some very interesting commentary could be seen in social media regarding
this matter. One parent noted that Girl Scouts had become even more
compromised, essentially offering only an indoctrination into
feminism and useless, boring and dull activities for girls, which were
said to be nowhere near the caliber of the activities the Boy Scouts
were still doing.
in that light, it seemed a lot less tragic, because it was merely seen
as a move from a severely compromised association to a much less
compromised one. After all Boy Scouts was still functioning at a pretty
high level, so why not let girls in and simply make it a single

the slippery slope of liberal and secular humanist values was able to
take another step with this World Scouting Jamboree edict about condoms.
While Scouts BSA (neé Boy Scouts of America) itself did not appear to
have any interest or investment in doing such a thing, their
participation in a worldwide get-together now places a new
anti-Christian demand on the association.

scouts max out at age 18. Who is going to be using these condoms, and
