Membership in BSA - - has been in steady decline.
They no longer receive funding/support from any government sponsored organization because of their discriminatory stance on: gays - atheists - and
sometimes unacceptable religious beliefs. Although there are Jewish Boy Scouts and Muslim Boy Scouts is growing.
The Mormons sort of hijacked the BSA years ago - - and are probably its largest supporter/promoter. I don't know if BSA was originally meant to be
church based - - but it seems it is today.
As one of their primary functions is to become involved in the community - - - are they becoming obsolete as community/society is changing in its
acceptance of gays?
I know that I will not support them in any way - - if they continue as they are.
And I am not the only one.
