New Boy Scouts Rival Organization Will Focus On “Sexual Purity” And “Christian Values”

Screen Shot 2013-07-10 at 12.32.52 PMFollowing the Boy Scouts’ decision to allow openly gay youth to serve among their ranks, a radical conservative group announced plans yesterday to form a rival organization offering “outdoors-oriented character development programs” with a focus on “sexual purity” and “a standard statement of Christian values.”

The new organization, yet to be named and operating out of OnMyHonor.net, was reportedly formed by parents and Scouting leaders formerly associated with the Boy Scouts of America. John Stemberger, the organization’s founder, says gay youth will be allowed to join so long as they don’t “openly flaunt sexuality.” He also adds that “there is not going to be any acting out, nor is there going to be a witch hunt. We wouldn’t expect any flaunting, innuendo, gestures or speech.”

So, kind of like Russia?

The group’s mission statement claims to “be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens.” Rob Green, interim executive director of OnMyHonor.net, says the organization was formed after “over 30,000 people” recommended it to him “directly.”

On June 29, the new organization was solidified after “nearly 50 leaders from around the country came together, each with a strong interest in forming a new scouting-like organization” at a meeting in Kentucky. The group plans to choose a name for the new organization at a national convention in September, and launch across the US in January.

Too bad they’re desperately late to hop on the “rival Boy Scouts” bandwagon. In April, a more inclusive Boy Scouts rival chapter—Navigators USA—announced that it would welcome all youth regardless of sexuality. One month later, a Northeastern chapter of the Boy Scouts of America officially defected from the national organization in a press release.

With all these new rival organizations popping up, how long will it take before the Boy Scouts of America is disbanded completely?

      Any guesses on when the first rape charges or molestation allegation will come out of this group?

      ‘Let’s focus on all the sex we’re NOT having! That way we won’t want to have sex!’

      What could possibly go wrong?

      These people are so profoundly ignorant of human nature and human sexuality its laughable. These will never be able to think outside the small box of Fundamentalism. In this their efforts are doomed to failure like unto what happened to Exodus International.

      Even setting everything else aside, interest in participating in the sorts of things scouts do isn’t what it used to be. The biggest thing the BSA had going for it, so far as long-term viability is concerned, is its near universality and recognizability.

      Never realized that the BSA was about sexual impurity. Good luck to them, seems like christian taliban indoctrination directed at young boys, curious, always with the young boys.

      Got to agree with Cam and others.
      These (IMHO) pedos love to get near to closeted youth, because there is less of a chance the child will tell on them.
      I highly doubt this group will even get off the ground, but if it does, it needs to be heavily monitored by the proper authorities.

      Nobody is gonna beat the BSA at the things they are historically known for.

      Thank God they made the decision to include Gay youth.

      Other improvements are pending.

      What this group fails to realize, we are RESPONSIBLE HUSBANDS, FATHERS, and good CITIZENS.. They aren’t doing something that we had to figured out how to do. We are not any less than they are.

      They can probably rely on donations from “Chic-fil-Hate” organizations. Dry chicken sandwiches are going to get old real fast.
