This is just what America needs – real men. The Trail Life USA statement reads, “Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens.”
I say, “Yay!”
The Blaze reports, “The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) sparked controversy a few months ago when the organization changed its membership policies to allow gay youths to join. Conservatives reacted with a variety of views on the matter, but one of the larger developments to emerge was a pledge among some of the policy’s fiercest critics to create a Christ-centered alternative to the BSA.
Over the past week, this promise has been kept with the official launch of Trail Life USA, a new alternative that describes itself as “a Christian adventure, character, and leadership movement for young men.”
“All boys are welcome to the program regardless of religion, race, national origin or socio-economic status. However, adult leaders in the program will be Christian and must sign a statement of faith and submit to background checks,” a press release reads. “Both boys and adults will be required to adhere to a code of conduct.”
