Are you calling the Boy Scouts "progressives"? its the Boy Scouts who want to attract girls, not a bunch of "progressives" demanding they allow girls.

grow up and get a grip

I'm not refuting that I'm just saying that the primary motivator here is the position the Eagle Scout holds in respect to what you can get if you are one.

Can you read with a modicum of comprehension?! Falling membership in the Boy Scouts started falling when progressives began demanding, and getting their progressive ideology introduced into the Boy Scouts. Because of those idiotic progressive demands membership began to fall. And in an attempt to bolster their numbers they began to admit girls.

You're overlooking the fact that BSA have been sued multiple times because of their girl exclusion policy.

Your statement makes no sense. Parents make decisions as to whether or not they will enroll their sons in BSA. Clearly the 'progressive demands' are not stopping parents from doing so.

Ay, remember who founded the Scouts and work for a revival of the British Empire! It might save you yet!

Give me some examples of progressives "...demanding and getting their progressive ideology introduced into the Boy Scouts."
Please be specific.
