TSCC stopped supporting the Boy Scouts how long ago? Think they were trying to get out before the news broke?

They stopped supporting BSA next Jan. 1-Jan-2020.

Therefore they are still in it.

Rumor mill has it that the BSA will declare bankruptcy to avoid the law suits. Who really knows...

Ah, I stand corrected.

That kind of an out would be both cowardly and completely predictable.

When one of my sons turned 12, the bishop informed me that he was inspired to call me to be a scoutmaster over the 12-14 year old boys. I balked, I hesitated, I did everything I could to avoid this horrible task but in the end I bowed my head and mumbled, "yes". I caved because, well, that is what faithful mormons did when asked to fulfill a church calling. When my son turned 14 and advanced into the next level, I asked to be released. The bishop had suddenly lost his hearing and couldn't hear me. I ended up releasing myself and stopped going.

But what I fear the most of all of this is the fact that any one of these kids I was a scoutmaster over could claim "abuse" and there isn't a dang thing I could do about it. I wasn't an abuser, but even typing that sounds hollow like I am already trying to prove innocence. I always had another adult present whenever I was with any of these kids, that was standard procedure, but still.

I think that the BSA will eventually fold, they needed the mormon monies to fund their entity. This lawsuit might just be the nudge that pushes them over the edge.

Glad you got yourself out of it as quickly as you could. You should be fine in the long run!

LDS leadership tried to get me to say yes to the young men's program. I showed them complete dis-interest and that was enough for them to be inspired about others to take on the job.

I took a job in elder's quorum for a short time. It was lame and and eventually released. I didn't give a hoot if we saw inactive families and bringing them back. I wanted out of it myself.

LDS claimed Eagle Scout was noteworthy, exemplary, practically necessary.

Now LDS is more like Buzzards.

Tail between their legs.

No spine. No backbone.
