The Boy Scouts of America may file for bankruptcy, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
Unnamed sources told The Wall Street Journal, that the organization’s leadership hired law firm Sidley Austin LLP for a potential chapter 11 bankruptcy filing assistance.
Doing so, according to the report, would be a way to pause several lawsuits against the Boy Scouts for allegations of sex abuse by employees.

The Boy Scouts of America is considering declaring bankruptcy, according to a Wall Street Journal report.
The Wednesday report comes in the wake of sinking membership and multiple controversies surrounding the 108-year-old organization, including sex abuse allegations and its controversial decision to change its program name from Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA and allow girls into that program.
Chicago law firm Sidley Austin has reportedly been hired to assist in what would be a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
As the organization has made decisions deemed to be more inclusive, such as allowing openly gay scouts in 2013 and scoutmasters in 2015 as well as the 2018 decision to allow girls, membership has continued to decline sharply, from over 4 million members at its peak to a claimed 2.3 million members at present.

That was the agenda of the ‘left’ from the beginning….shutting down a ‘mainstream..wholesome..American institution!!!

The host of “Dirty Jobs” Mike Roe wrote in May of the “death of the Boy Scouts of America.”
In my opinion, this kind of attrition can only explained by an increasing lack of relevance, or, the perception of irrelevance. Right now, there’s a perception that The Boy Scouts have gone soft. That’s the real tragedy, Sharon, because I can’t think of anything more needed in our country today, than a youth organization that offers kids the same experience I underwent in the basement of Kenwood Church. Why? Because our country’s current obsession with ‘safe spaces’ is destroying character faster than the Boy Scouts of today can build it.
They prided themselves on building character for young boys, but did not have the character necessary to stand up to the perverted left, and thereby ensured their own self-destruction.
Here’s an incomplete list of formerly good things destroyed or badly damaged by liberalism: The Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, the NFL, National Geographic, the Barnum & Bailey Circus, Sports Illustrated, women’s competitive sports, romance and flirtation, masculinity, femininity, comedy in general, the traditional two-parent family, education, anybody else care to add to the list?
