Lay Off the Boy Scouts !!!
The Morning Paper-Snowstorm edition | 02/12/06 | vanity

Posted on 02/12/2006 9:17:16 AM PST by genefromjersey

Lay Off the Boy Scouts !!

I’ve had it with the vicious attacks on the Boy Scouts of America !

I’ve seen them called “ a Brownshirt Taliban” , “KKK for Kiddies”, and worse !

The main bone of contention seems to be that the organization uses its free association rights (upheld by the Supreme Court) to screen out potential Boy Scout leaders who are openly gay : a precaution most parents whole-heartedly endorse.

“This is discrimination !” , the protestors howl. “ There is no scientific evidence that gays are more likely to be pedophiles than heterosexuals are.”

I’ve looked at the available evidence, and tend to agree – but pedophilia is not the issue !

Pedophilia is the desire to have sex with very young children , and those who practice it are (statistically) male members of the immediate family , and juveniles.

From a Scouting perspective, the young boys at risk for pedophile molestation are Cub Scouts – who are usually well protected by Den Mothers. Cub Scouts are also quite a bit less likely to be far from home on extended camping trips.

The real issue is ephebophilia ( sometimes called hebephilia ) : the desire to have sex with young adolescents.

Ephebophilia is most notable among male homosexuals – many of whom see nothing wrong with having sex with a young adolescent male-whose sexual orientation is still somewhat amorphous.

Here is a link to a male homosexual information center that studies this problem:

http://www.mhamic.org/terminology/terminology_print.htm

If you would like to assess how widespread this disorder * is, I suggest you go to your favorite online search engine –eg: Google, Yahoo, or Jeeves – and type in the word “twinks”. (See how many entries you get. 100,000 or more is not improbable.)

A “twink” is a young boy – preferably about 14 years old – and one of the favorite pornography topics for male homosexuals (and others who frequent gay sex sites).

The Boy Scouts of America have been around for a very long time-and have had to deal with the problem of sexual abuse of young adolescents by older, homosexual leaders for a very long time.

One such “wave” of abuse occurred in my area about a generation ago,and created a major scandal. Right on the heels of this scandal,a trusted leader-not involved with the abuse, as far as I know- decided it would be a good time to “ come out of the closet “. ( Talk about really bad timing !)

The organization dropped him like a hot potato . He took them to court and lost-and lost-and lost: all the way up to the top.

Since then,assorted civil liberties groups , gay advocacy groups , and ideologues of various stripes have harrassed the Boy Scouts like a swarm of gnats: pressuring everybody who will listen to them to penalize the Scouts for making the safety of their membership more important than soothing the ruffled feathers of those most likely to do harm.

I guess this is what passes for civil rights now !

* note: The American Psychiatric Association still classifies ephebophilia as a “disorder” – but just barely. It seems the problem is so common among gays , it has become “normal”.

Queers will say or do anything to get what they want - and what they want is our children. Fags want your son, lesbians want your daughter. If they can get to them while they are still mentally and emotionally immature, but physically "nubile", they figure they've got a shot at turning them into their playthings. They couldn't care less about the damage they might do as long as they get theirs. They are disgusting.

Homosexuals try to get access to young boys through other organizations as well such as big-brother and other mentoring programs. The laws should be such that these organizations can screen out potential predators.

Good read!
So that's how "normal" is defined...hmmm, i always wondered who and how anyone came up with what's "normal"...now i know... when we, the people, have a "problem", all we've gotta do is show there's ALOT of people with that "problem" and it's not a "problem" anymore, then it gets reclassified as "normal". So if enough twisted people are pedophiles then it's not a problem, it's normal!

Anti-ACLU, anti-homosexual, anti-pervert Sarcasm Torpedo ARMED. FIRE!!

Let's agree with the ACLU and allow male homosexual scoutmasters.

Provided the ACLU and their financial backers agree to personally indemnify the Boy Scouts against all monetary damages from any pedophilia suits, and related expenses.

Down to the last penny. Out of their own private pockets.

Cheers!

Well said.

My sister-in-law is a flaming liberal. When she asks what I want for Christmas I tell her "simply a donation, of any amount, in my name, to the Boy Scouts of America." Man does she end up fuming over that! Needless to say she has never given me the Christmas present that I have asked for.

"Fags want your son, lesbians want your daughter"

I knew a guy who was married to a woman and he would come to a pet store I worked at about 15 yrs ago. He became friends with a number of men and women who worked at our store because he was always there. Once or twice, me and another guy would go to a football game or something with this guy and his wife. Never once did he act gay or hit on me (sexy 21 yr old that I was). He was very, very much into chicks - you could just tell, he didn't act overt about it but you could see him watching a lady's ass as she moved through a crowd.

Well, one day I came to work and there were cops talking to the manager. When they left, the manager told me that the cops were looking for him because he was touching GIRLS in the store - little girls. Rubbing their shoulders while they looked at fish or rabbits or whatever. I was floored - this was a nice guy. Anyway, later that day his wife shows up in tears and asked if I knew where he was. I was like "no, but I'm sure he didn't do it" and she laughed at me and said "of course he did, this isn't the first time...".

My point here, besides an interesting tale that opened my eyes to people a little, is that its not a gay thing (necessarily). I think gay men may have a higher inclination towards this kind of behavior, but if so I don't think it is by that much. People don't line up according to our carefully drawn paradigms, which is why sociology is more alchemy than science.

Not trying to change the subject or divert the thread, but I love how these lefties pick and choose. They make this "no scientific evidence" claim where they wish to further their agenda, but, as in the case of smoking bans, "scientific evidence" says their is no credible link to second hand smoke and cancer, it goes totally ignored and is stated as a "scientific fact."

Junk science and any science that futhers their agenda seems to be their replacement for God.

This is a much needed topic to be examined...
I'm a former District Chairman, Council Training Chairman
Executive board member of my local council, Eagle Scout, Philmont Staffer, National Jamboree Staffer, Wood Badge Staffer, Silver Beaver, Vigil, in the OA, etc. etc. etc. Let's just say I've been there, done that, and got the T-shirt when it comes to the great Worldwide Scouting Movement envisioned by Lord Baden-Powell of Gilwell. One short true story to add to this discussion. We had to deal with the media at the National Jamboree back in 1997, when we had a "sicko" that would pretend to be a media "type" with his roving camera, and was trying to "interview" the scouts to get their hometown info. We actually had to defend ourselves to the media AT THE JAMBOREE, to say we were going to check ALL the media out each day while we were looking for this predator-
We never found him...as far as I know he could still be out there- It seems the people who want to be validated by gaining membership in the BSA are the very people who want to also destroy the movement by that very act. I also have it on good authority that the day the BSA is forced to accept "Gay" leaders the way the Girl Scouts of America seem to now, that's the day the Mormon church will yank all the charters of EVERY Troop and Pack in every ward in America. It would be the end of the BSA.
God Bless the supreme court for buying a little more time for Scouting with their 5-4 decision. We in Scouting are living on borrowed time. Many United Ways also have stopped their financial support, and school boards don't allow recruiting in schools each fall due to this "topic"...
For the movement-

I think gay men may have a higher inclination towards this kind of behavior, but if so I don't think it is by that much

I don't see how any of us can make this assertion. A homosexual in San Francisco went fourty miles out of his way to befriend my family (with two young boys, myself and my brother). He offered me a job to get me to ride back to SF where he took me to lunch at a gay place to show his friends how cool he was. (Yes I was molested, as my parents were oblivious to his behavior -- later we learned he molested my brother too) The point is that as young guys, we were open to new sexual experiences. I was also a scout, but did not report these events at the time. Today's scouts are better prepared as this warning comes with "The Handbook for Boys". One real reason the homosexuals confront the scouts is this improvement in readiness on the part of the BSA. It is a direct defense against a behavior that I consider very prevalent in the homosexual community. I don't even think they think twice about it, it is not a forced molestation, but a learning experience, their wisdom to the uninitiated that may be mutually satisfying after all.

It's called cultural relativism.

The gay communities are engaging on a campaign of "forced endorsement." By having courts force the acceptance of their presence, they are forcing the endorsement of their alternative sexual practices by the government.

DID you read the part of the article about "twinks"????

THAT is the important part of this article.

ALMOST ALL MALE homos want "TWINKS" as well as their usual older "billof fair" !

Your comments about the male touching the little girls has NOTHING to do with homosexuals. JUST perverts.

You know, I don't have a good answer to that. At the time I forgave myself, I was young, did not know about my younger brother, and the guy moved on. When we told my dad years later he was stunned. I never followed up with homosexual experimentation, I turned down other homosexual "hits" as I suspect most men have done. That was many years ago.

I'm retired, happy with my wife of 26 years. But I went through a divorce from my first marriage and don't know how this event affected my personnel self esteem. My brother got into drugs, (it was the flower children period) and many years later died of complications while still using drugs. Who knows whether this early event had a weight? I think the best that can be said is that I would not allow this to happen to my son. And most parents think the same way. I support and continue to support the BSA as a fine youth organization. I also am totally opposed to giving into any of the homosexual normalization agenda. In fact, I still hope that one day the cause of homosexuality will be medically determined so that prospective parents can determine whether we want this aspect in the sexual continuum or not.

" I also am totally opposed to giving into any of the homosexual normalization agenda"

First of all, I'm glad you are ok, despite my "gay/straight who-cares" attitude, I'm also happy you turned out straight. Given the choice, I'd never want my kid to be gay (I'll admit it, I'm biased). And, regarding your opposition to "giving in" - I totally agree, always have. BSA is a PRIVATE organization based on religious ideas and absolute morality. Not government-approved morality.

Good day

This needs to be repeated. In fact, the entire thread needs to be BTTT again and again.

It's black and white. No gray. Homsoexuality is immoral, unhealthy, and unnatural. Men (and women) who practice it or promote it need to STAY THE HE!! AWAY FROM CHILDREN. And treated with compassion - they should be told the truth that they don't need to be "gay". No one is born "gay" and people can change.

G, mason, I "stole" your post, and laid it out to include some of the typical Radical objections. (Enjoy!) Scout Oath (or Promise)

On my honor I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Hey ! We can't have that attitude !

Scout Law

TRUSTWORTHY

A Scout tells the truth. He keeps his promises. Honesty is part of his code of conduct. People can depend on him.

What ? No Moral Relativism ?

LOYAL

A Scout is true to his family, Scout leaders, friends, school, and nation.

Are you suggesting I'm disloyal ?

HELPFUL

A Scout is concerned about other people. He does things willingly for others without pay or reward.

Volunteerism ! Sick-sick-sick !

FRIENDLY

A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He seeks to understand others. He respects those with ideas and customs other than his own.

We want him to be friendlier to Scoutmasters,if you catch my drift...

COURTEOUS

A Scout is polite to everyone regardless of age or position. He knows good manners make it easier for people to get along together.

Act up ! Act out ! Raise your fists, and SHOUT !

KIND

A Scout understands there is strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. He does not hurt or kill harmless things without reason.

THIS we like !

OBEDIENT

A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobey them.

NO-no-no-no-no !!!

CHEERFUL

A Scout looks for the bright side of things. He cheerfully does tasks that come his way. He tries to make others happy.

That should be a governmental function,dummy !

THRIFTY

A Scout works to pay his way and to help others. He saves for unforeseen needs. He protects and conserves natural resources. He carefully uses time and property.

Why bother, when you can get a GRANT ?

BRAVE

A Scout can face danger even if he is afraid. He has the courage to stand for what he thinks is right even if others laugh at or threaten him.

Hey,kid: play it smart: Run like Hell !

CLEAN

A Scout keeps his body and mind fit and clean. He goes around with those who believe in living by these same ideals. He helps keep his home and community clean.

Outrageous discrimination against the other-oriented !

REVERENT

A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others.

How dare you mention religion ?

Scout Motto / With Response

Be Prepared ....Let somebody else prepare !

Scout Slogan /With Response

Do a Good Turn Daily.... That's what paid social workers are for !

I got really ticked off when some snotty SOB on another site started comparing the BSA with the KKK.He claimed they were a "White Christians only" group, which really burned me up; because a generation ago, when I was involved in Cub Scouting, I remembered we had racially mixed dens, with members from non-Christian backgrounds.

I decided to look into a few other things the radicals keep trying to sweep under the rug-and I hit paydirt with the correct diagnosis: ephebophilia-that so many male gays embrace.

Hopefully, I'll make it through the night (some nights I wonder !) to my 72nd birthday, and I've resolved to keep throwing the crap back into the faces of the radicals: not just here, but on the sites where THEY feel comfortable.

How can one die better, than in facing fearful odds-for the ashes of his fathers-and the temples of his gods ?

I am the mother of an Eagle Scout. I wear my mother's Eagle Scout pin every work day and Sunday. I am so proud of my fine son.

Keep throwin', Gene, you're doing a great job.

Forty years ago when I was a cub scout the den I was in was majority black with a black female den leader and only two white boys. I enjoyed the experience so much that I am a boy scout leader today. No descrimination in scouts except where the safety of the youth is concerned, so no sexual predators of any sort.
