Barry Richard: The Politically Correct Crowd Killed the Boy Scouts

FILE- Less than a year after the Boy Scouts of America decided to invite girls to join the organization announced that it will refer to its older youth program as

With girls soon entering the ranks, the group says that iconic name will change. Nevertheless, more than 3,000 girls have signed up to join the what used to be the Boy Scouts.

Boy Scouts of America made a major announcement this week that the name of one of their staple programs is changing. It's the Boy Scouts program that is for teens ages 11 to 17 that is changing its name, and that's because as of February 2019, girls will be allowed to join in on the fun.

The host also noted that in Scouts BSA, boys and girls will eventually be separated by gender again as they get older, something Huckabee also pushed back against.

"The name is part of a rebranding effort to reflect the group's historic decision previous year to accept girls.

Scout me in celebrates the BSA's historic decision to serve families and welcome girls and boys to our programs", the organization stated on its website.

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America assert in a blog post that it "is unmatched in delivering proven outcomes that set girls up to close the gender gap and position our nation to compete in the global economy".

The Guardian's Ben Jacobs noted on Twitter that Michael Williams, a Republican candidate for governor of Georgia, said that if the Boy Scouts of today - and the supporters of its new changes - parented the soldiers who fought in WWII, the war would have been won by the Axis Powers.

Scouts BSA "will stay divided along gender lines...." The organization is expanding corporate partnerships in both those areas, and developing a Girl Scout Network Page on LinkedIn to support career advancement for former Girl Scouts.

Accompanying the campaign is a name change. The Boy Scouts, as we knew them, are dead. The Cub Scout and Scouts BSA program launch, led by Golin, will encompass a fully integrated strategy that spans paid, owned and earned channels.

Sam Snoddy has been a local scouts master for more than 50 years.

The new name will be Scouts: BSA.

BSA says that more than 3,000 girls nationwide have already enrolled in its early adopter program and are now active in the Cub Scouts.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Boy Scouts are getting a name change.

The Girl Scouts list a series of efforts created to "stay ahead of the pack of youth organizations".

Surbaugh explained that single-sex units will ensure that girls will not have to compete with boys for leadership positions.
