Won’t that mean that their slogan Be Prepared will be taking on a new meaning?

They should be prepared for complete irrelevance.

Isn’t the Boy Scouts a religious organization? I thought they were exempt. Maybe they’re struggling and trying to swell the ranks?

That’s weird.  I thought they had admitted girls long ago.  I remember a big push for it back in the 90’s.  Girls wanted to join the Boy Scouts because the only thing the Girl Scouts did was sell cookies.

Any citation about that?

No, they aren’t religious. Just spineless.
