Alternative Scout Group: 'Our Leaders Will Be Christians'

Ad Feedback

A new alternative organization to the Boy Scouts said it will welcome boys of all faiths, but require its leaders to adhere to a Christian faith statement.

The organization detailed its plans in a press conference Tuesday.

The group said some 30,000 families have already contacted it, saying they plan to leave the Scouts and want a faith-based organization.

The new organization will focus on the outdoors and character development.

Boys who struggle with same-sex attraction will be allowed, but the group said it will not allow them to "flaunt" any same-sex orientation.

"Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens," the organization said in a press release.

The organization will announce its new name in September and plans to launch next January.
