Boy Scouts 24th World Jamboree Has A New Accessory: Condoms [VIDEO]

This year, the Boy Scouts or BSA as they are now called, debuted their new theme for the 24th World Jamboree. That theme is “Unlock A New World.” And it seems that “New World” involves condoms. Yes, condoms.

The guidelines require that host organizations, who in this case include the former Boy Scouts of America (now Scouts BSA),

“… ensure that condoms are readily and easily accessible for all 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 7.3 on page 10 of the document.) [Emphasis Added]

Yes, it’s in the actual guidelines.  Specifically Guideline 7.3 on page 10.

It was just two weeks ago that the organization announced their name change.  Needless to say, THAT wasn’t received well at all.

What is or was the motto for the Boy Scouts?

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

I say was …because offering condoms to minors is definitely NOT an example of good morals.

What are the traits a Scout is supposed to exemplify?

TRUSTWORTHY. Tell the truth and keep promises. People can depend on you.

LOYAL. Show that you care about your family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and country.

HELPFUL. Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward.

FRIENDLY. Be a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from you.

COURTEOUS. Be polite to everyone and always use good manners.

KIND. Treat others as you want to be treated . Never harm or kill any living thing without good reason.

OBEDIENT. Follow the rules of your family, school, and pack. Obey the laws of your community and country.

CHEERFUL. Look for the bright side of life. Cheerfully do tasks that come your way. Try to help others be happy.

THRIFTY. Work to pay your own way. Try not to be wasteful. Use time, food, supplies, and natural resources wisely.

BRAVE. Face difficult situations even when you feel afraid. Do what you think is right despite what others might be doing or saying.

CLEAN. Keep your body and mind fit . Help keep your home and community clean.

REVERENT. Be reverent toward God. Be faithful in your religious duties. Respect the beliefs of others.

Will someone PLEASE tell me how condoms fit into any of this? The answer is, they don’t. Those who attend the Jamboree must be between the ages of 12-18. And with that, I know that sadly many will just shrug their shoulders and say – boys everywhere are sexually active now – it’s no big deal. Yes, it is a big deal.

First of all, the ethics and values of what was the Boy Scouts organization stood firm on the high ground of character, integrity, and morals.

This from John Stemberger with Trail Life USA:

“In light of the mandatory condom policy, it is not clear how far down the rabbit hole the Boy Scouts will continue to fall. With the addition of condoms and alcohol, the World Jamboree is starting to sound more like a 1960s Woodstock festival rather than a campout that parents would want to send their children to! 

But now, it seems to be more about political correctness and virtue signaling as Kim wrote about here.

Who loses in all this? The young boys in the organization.

Yes, the Boy Scout organization has lost their moral compass. The organization has abandoned that which made it great and and thrown onto the trash heap that which took boys and turned them into men of character, honor, and integrity. How sadly prescient that Marta wrote just yesterday about the Values we have lost.

This is NOT the kind of ‘new world’ we should be unlocking. This move by the Boy Scouts highlights another instance of how low we have fallen. I fear for this Republic, I fear for our young men and our future if this continues.

    Now the value of a condom to provide water and dirt resistant protection for the muzzle of
    a rifle, without obstructing operation, can be taught.
    Embezzlement by rent-seekers aside, anyone have any MORE questions about why I NEVER offer philanthropy to “collective charities” such as The United Way?

    What about the official Plan B pill?

    Will there be a planned parenthood merit badge?

    Will there be a feminism merit badge?

    Will the scouts have short shorts and dresses?

  • GWB says:

    That theme is “Unlock A New World.”
    They forgot the word “Brave” in there. *smh*

    Having said that, there are a few things to keep in mind that might dial back the outrage a little.

    First, this is the WORLD Scouting Organization, not the BSA. This is the WORLD Jamboree, not the BSA Jamboree. So, this is something driven by world progressives. Heck, the UN requires this kind of crap all the time. Don’t lay this at the feet of the BSA – yet.
    Second, note the bit about “consideration shall be given to the various cultures and beliefs present.” This could be used to not allow them to be advertised (since it’s illegal for minors to have sex in America – though WV might…). I would put them in big bins behind the medical supplies tent, under a tarp.

    As to Mr Stemberger, commenting about alcohol, it’s always been idiotic to ban alcohol from all BSA activities. Plus, there has always been a religious exemption (communion, Seder, etc.). And the guidelines specifically allow it only in an Adults-only area and no one can go back to their units snockered. Oh, and there’s that “in accordance with the host country’s habits.” (OK, admittedly that could be a BIG problem in WV.)

    Yes, a once venerable organization is going down the tubes. But let’s make sure we lay blame where it belongs in any specific instance. This particular idiocy is NOT the BSA’s fault.

  • Garland Twitty says:

    Did Tom Lehrer anticipate (or was it “promote”) this awfulness in the 1950s? Here is the last stanza of his cynical take on the Scouts then:

    “If you’re looking for adventure of a new and different kind,
    And come across a Girl Scout who is similarly in mind,
    Don’t be nervous, don’t be flustered, don’t be scared!
    Be Prepared!”

    Our grandson just graduated from Cubs to Boy Scouts; we can only hope his troop will promote the growth of moral character and leadership.

    • Chris in N.Va says:

      Chorus from Homer and Jethro’s song, Camp Kookamonga:

      We’re the boys from Camp Kookamonga
      Our mothers sent us here for to study nature’s ways
      We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together
      But if we catch the girls then we’ll set the woods ablaze

      Nothing like instilling and nurturing sterling moral character in our Scouts.
      Nothing indeed, it would seem.

      Maybe we can slightly coopt Smokey the Bear’s old motto:
      Remember, only YOU can prevent Liberal Worldview Disease

    I guess condoms for the staff should read “for the gay staff”…
