Please Read... and Pray...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will let you know about something.

Here is a link for an article by that was entitled, The Boy Scouts filed for bankruptcy after facing hundreds of new allegations of sexual abuse

Hopefully, you clicked on that link and read that article that was published February 18, 2020.  I only recently read it, but will share you a bit (I copied/pasted):
  • The Boy Scouts filed for bankruptcy on Tuesday following a new wave of lawsuits alleging sexual abuse. 
  • Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts have played a fundamental role in many Americans' childhood.
  • But the organization has grappled with sexual-abuse allegations in its ranks for decades. It internally documented thousands of men suspected or known to have preyed on Scouts. 
  • Lawyers around the country say they have gathered hundreds of new clients who say they were abused in the Scouts, many of them decades ago.
  • But a bankruptcy filing would freeze all existing litigation and could set a time limit for victims to come forward to receive compensation.
Facing a wave of lawsuits and decades-old allegations of sexual abuse, the Boy Scouts of America filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Tuesday, complicating the path to justice for the thousands of former Scouts who say they were abused during their time in the storied American institution.
The organization filed just after midnight in the US Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, ending months of speculation that it would take such an action. The filing covers the national organization but excludes its local councils. These entities operate troops and hold about 70% of the organization's wealth, a Wall Street Journal analysis found.
The Boy Scouts have experienced over a decade of tumult from declining membership, the dissolution of key partnerships, controversy over their decision to allow gay and female members, and scrutiny over the extent to which child predators operated within their ranks.
The latter is perhaps the most pressing issue for the Boy Scouts. Over the past year, lawyers across the US gathered new allegations by former Scouts who say they were sexually abused and filed lawsuits on their behalf.
It also stated (I copied/pasted):
An investigator hired by the Scouts revealed in January during sworn testimony in an unrelated case that her team had identified 12,254 victims and 7,819 perpetrators in internal documents from 1946 through 2016.
Bankruptcy has the potential to bring even more cases to light if a "bar date" for survivors to come forward is set. Abused in Scouting is preparing to receive even more clients, Rothweiler said.
"I think the bankruptcy is going to unmask the sexual abuse issue in ways we've never seen before, because we're going to see men from all over the country come forward," Mones said.
"The question is going to be," he continued, "when the sexual-abuse problem of the Boy Scouts is shown in the full sunlight, will moms and dads in small towns across America make the decision, 'I don't want my son to join'?"
If you are a survivor of sexual assault, you can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673) or visit their website to receive confidential support.

To me, it has NOT been good that sexual-abuse was mentioned in that article... (I will copy/paste it, again):
  • The Boy Scouts filed for bankruptcy on Tuesday following a new wave of lawsuits alleging sexual abuse. 
Thinking about that, made me think about Leviticus 18:17-22, " Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.
18 Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.
19 Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.
20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her.
21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.".

Amen!  To me... and and anyone else who understands what God feels is good or evil... would realize that people should NOT have sex... with people... unless they are a husband and wife.

Yet... Boy Scouts... are NOT husband and wife... together.

Please join me in prayer that people will... read God's Word/the Bible... for if they do, they will realize what is acceptable or non-acceptable by God... when evilness/sinfulness... is done.

Thank you for praying.

May God bless you!

Until next time...
