Chart of Differences between the Boy Scouts of America   and the new Youth Adventure Program:  

  Comparison of Membership Standards:   Encourages youth membership in an exciting outdoorfocused leadership development program.   Allows any “sexual preferences” among boys including “open and avowed homosexuality.”   Allows boy members who are not sexually active or professing homosexuals, but who are experiencing a same sex attraction or sexual identity confusion.   Identifies God’s design for human sexuality   exclusively as the covenant of marriage   between one man and one woman   Both churched and unchurched youth   (of any religion) may join the organization.   Youth voluntarily join the organization fully understanding that they are joining an organization undergirded by a Christian worldview.   Fixed objective standard for ethics, morals and values   Stated objective standard for human sexuality.   Generic, non-sectarian, “duty to God” undefined.   Program requires adult members to subscribe to and abide by Christian statement of faith & values.   Centralized Control of Membership Standards: decision-making on membership standards controlled by paid executives through their appointed delegates.   Decentralized Control of Membership Standards: decision making on membership standards subjected to vote by local unit leaders.

Charter partners own and operate local groups, selecting leaders and admitting members as they deem beneficial to their group and within the parameters of the national policy (excerpted from Membership Standards).  

     

Outline of Differences between the Boy Scouts of America   and the new Youth Adventure Program:  
  1) The BSA’s new policy requires troops to accept “open and avowed homosexuality” among its boys. The new group does not.    

2) The BSA’s new policy requires troops to accept boys who express any “sexual preference.” The new group does not.  
 

3) The BSA’s new policy appears to require troops to accept transgendered boys whose “sexual preference” is to dress and act out like a girl. The new group does not.  
 

4) The BSA’s new policy also appears to allow girls who subjectively want to act out as boys as their “sexual preference”. The new group specifically requires youth members to be “biologically male.”  
 

5) The BSA has no fixed objective standard for what words like “morally straight”, “clean” and “reverent” mean. The new group clearly articulates its values and morals.  
 

6) The heart of the mission statement of the BSA is to “prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes.” In contrast, the basis of the new group’s ethics, morals, and values come from the Bible and the statement of values which expressly defines those standards.  
 

7) The BSA has no fixed or objective standard for normative human sexuality or what it means to be “morally straight.” The new group is clear that “any sexual activity outside the context of the covenant of marriage between one man and one woman is sinful before God and therefore inconsistent with the values and principles of the program.”  
 

8) The BSA is a non-sectarian organization that has a generic “duty to God.” The new organization is “Christ- Centered” in that it requires adult members to subscribe to and abide by a Christian statement of faith and values.  
 

9) The BSA’s decision-making comes through the centralized control of professional paid executives, whose hand-selected delegates vote a certain way in policy change. The new organization, in order to respect the will of local leaders and members, has decentralized control.  
Boy Scouts of America Membership Standards taking effect January 1, 2014: “No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone.” See: http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/sitecore/content/membershipstandards/resolution/resolution.as px New Boys Youth Adventure Program Membership Standards: See: http://www.onmyhonor.net/membership-­‐standards/
