Great post - surprised the AP would do a good story about abuse and the Scouts. Rush said it when the Penn State story broke, “this is about a gay man not anything else.” Too bad the major media can’t use the words that fit the men who abuse choir BOYS and SCOUTS...gay.

Schoener said, the Scouts' prevention program is "considered somewhat the gold standard" - though he suggested that the training material could more clearly show how the Scouts learned from past problems. "They need to shout loud and clear, this has happened in the Boy Scouts - here are examples," Schoener said. Johnson indicated he agreed, saying, "There are some Scout-specific situations that should be addressed in the training going forward."

I'd say the pamphlet is clear enough. From what I remember, it DOES describe what happens in specific situations. We parents must sign-off that we read it to our sons, and one of mine was age 11 or 12 at the time. The pamphlet was detailed enough. In fact, I picked and chose what to read because my son at that age was clearly disturbed by what he was hearing. I remember the expression on his face and what he said: "This is disturbing." We don't need to frighten them anymore than that.

This is a perfect statement from the AP article -”...the Scouts’ prevention program is “considered somewhat the gold standard.”

Keep the queers out, the remaining problem will be statistically insignificant.
