View Diary: Boy Scouts chicken out and delay their decision to May (61 comments)

  •  Delay = backing down from any change (5+ / 0-)

    In my view, anyway.

    Would love to be proved wrong.

    •  Maybe. (7+ / 0-)

      But even if a majority of the Board is inclined to go to a policy of local option, the real problem is the sponsoring bodies.  I've said this for years.  

      Also, the BSA has become increasingly conservative as many schools and inclusive churches have stopped sponsoring Scouting units and more thoughtful parents have steered their boys into other youth programs and activities.

      There's also the possibility (which I have not seen explored) that there has been a conservative takeover behind the scenes, as happened with the Southern Baptist Convention and the NRA ca.1980.

      Whether it was by design or merely by attrition, the BSA has become more calcified in its conservatism.  

      (That sound you are hearing is a paradigm being shifted at Warp Factor Infinity using no clutch.)
