Would there be enough of a stink that the city would re-renege?
As a parent of a scout (and an ASM), I'd be real happy if my Council stood strong to protect our scouts from predators. Not every homosexual is a predator - I understand that: but there are more in that group than there are in mine. I want to reduce risk, not increase the risk of reading a headline.
No but every homosexual is a homosexual. Why would I want my son involved in a program to help him become a better man if its ran by gay leaders that don't even know what being a real man is? Sorry not all of them are pedaphiles, but all of them are mentally not there in terms of their sexuality.
Studies clearly show that percentage of homosexuals are predominant in same sex molestation cases. This increases where 'straight' men molest boys, a homosexual act. This is far out of proportion to the homosexual percentage of the population in general. Therefore, it is safer to view homosexuals as a threat to boys in scouting, safer for parents. Finally, most, if not all of the boy scout molestation incidences have been wrought by homosexuals.
