A couple of great institutions have committed seppuku by conforming themselves to the worst trends of a secularist society. Stick a fork – or a tanto – into the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts. I was a Boy Scout, so I’m pretty angry about what they’ve done.
One a happier note, I read that Bp. Michael Olson of the Diocese of Forth Worth has given recognition to the Troops of St. George as a Catholic apostolate.

Fort Worth Bishop Michael Olson congratulates apostolate
KELLER, Texas — Thousands of young men and their fathers across the country found their prayers answered yesterday when Most Rev. Michael F. Olson, bishop of the Diocese of Fort Worth, Texas, officially endorsed the Troops of St. George as a Catholic apostolate.
“After a careful review of the program and its contents, including its mission statement, curriculum, pedagogical structure, letters of Ecclesiastical approval, and statement of mission that faithfully reflects and adheres to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, the Troops of Saint George is hereby approved as a Catholic Apostolate of the Diocese of Fort Worth,” the bishop wrote in a letter, dated May 16, 2018.
National Executive Director Dr. Jeremy Lustig thanked Bishop Olson for approving the apostolate and for his enthusiasm for the Troops’ work. “Bishop Olson has been enthusiastic about our work from the beginning, so we’re thrilled to have his official approval of our ministry.”
Brian Squibbs, National Director of Communications and Recruitment, said the Troops of St. George is needed in our day now more than ever.
“With the growing amount of gender confusion in our world today, the Troops of St. George offers Catholic boys and their dads a deep, fully Catholic experience in the outdoors with sacraments, adventure, and authentic masculinity.”
“Troops” already appeals.
