The Boy Scouts, who ended up in bankruptcy after years of adopting the progressive political agenda even while fighting hundreds of sex-abuse allegations, announced it will require a “diversity and inclusion merit badge” for the Eagle Scout rank in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Fox News reported the organization said in a letter it will also require diversity and inclusion training for all BSA employees beginning July 1.
It also will review property names, events and insignia, and “build on and enhance the organization’s nearly 30-year ban on use of the Confederate flag.”
The scouting group insisted “is not a political issue: it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address.”
Its letter pledged allegiance to “Black families and the Black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter.”
