Parents fleeing 'Scouts' for faith-based alternative

Trail Life USA emblemThe leader of a faith-based scouting program says parents are well aware of a culture that is corrupting young men in the name of progress. 

Parents are watching in real time as the famed Boy Scouts of America continues to spiral toward an uncertain future that now includes weighing Chapter 11 bankruptcy to stay afloat. That dilemma comes two decades after the Scouts won a U.S. Supreme Court decision banning open homosexuals only to bow to public pressure to allow them in the troops, first as scouts and later as leaders overseeing boys.

Now aligned with the LGBT movement, the Boy Scouts began allowing transgendered boys --- biological girls --- to join its troops and, more recently, announced it was allowing girls and was planning a name change.

After losing thousands of members, the Scouts reportedly lost a whopping 425,000 members when the Mormon Church, which had cooperated despite the controversy, announced it was done with the Boy Scouts.

"We live in a fallen world," he observes, "and as organizations that help boys we're either going to bring clarity to that or we're going to contribute to the moral confusion that boys are experiencing."

Last year, he says, Trail Life participation jumped 35 percent and Hancock attributes that growth to an "unapologetically" Christ-centered scouting program.

"People know boys and girls are different and they're looking for common sense solutions," he tells OneNewsNow. "So Trail Life USA provides an answer for today's boys."
