Huckabee: Boy Scouts Did Right Thing because gays abuse children
New Civil Rights ^ | July 23 2012 | David Badash

Posted on 07/23/2012 2:36:16 PM PDT by scottjewell

Mike Huckabee on his radio show last week told his audience and one caller in particular that the Boy Scouts‘ decision to continue its ban on homosexuals was the right because it protects boy scouts from sexual abuse. The assumption Huckabee is clearly making is all gay people are pedophiles, or a large percentage of gay people are pedophiles.

A caller into Huckabee’s radio show says he was molested by his scout leader for three years, adding, “if there hadn’t have been a homosexual in my troop, I wouldn’t have been traumatized for about three years.” Of course, Huckabee ignored the fact hat the man’s abuser was actually a pedophile, not a homosexual, based on his actions. Huckabee also ignores mountains of evidence that shows that pedophilia and homosexuality are different things, and gay people are no more likely to be child molesters than straight people.

Huckabee then says that the scout leader of his troop when he was a boy “had done the same thing to some of the kids in the scout troop.” Therefore, Huckabee believes, all gays are pedophiles.

With homosexuality defined by the act every male pedophile who preys on boys is a homosexual.

There are some of them who don't want the public to know that.

“Huckabee ignored the fact hat the man’s abuser was actually a pedophile, not a homosexual, based on his actions.”

Actually I believe that the guy was both. And I also believe that both played into the abuse of the caller.

If the abuser didn’t lean homosexual then I doubt his victim would have been of the same sex. Not that abusing little girls is any better, but a heterosexual would not molest someone of the same sex.

Yes, indeed! Let me convolute the issue to the point where I have a forum to voice my agenda, regardless of the original issue. /s

When BSA welcomes gays into their ranks, my family leaves BSA.

Gays want to be taken as a natural subset of human beings. The only flaw is that there is no way of identifying a homosexual except by his actions. Pretty much as the Puritans identified both saints and reprobates. Even then, they were not certain.

I have read studies that demonstrate that homosexuals are much more likely to be pedophiles. Further I think homosexuals hide behind the term pedophile as in “he isn't a homosexual, he's a pedophile” If an adult male specifically targets boys but acts “straight” otherwise is he really straight? For that matter if he only targets boys does can he accurately be called a pedophile? A pedophile wouldn't target one sex or another if they didn't have a preference and isn't the preference what determines one being heterosexual rather than homosexual? There are cases where pedophiles have targeted both prepubescent boys and girls. That would be a pedophile. One that exclusively targets boys (and is a male himself) is by definition homosexual.

If you’re someone with a weiner, and you’re attracted with those with weiners, you are gay.

Boys are not safe camping out with such a person. Ask Sundusky’s victims if they disagree.

The author is drawing his own conclusion as to what Huckabee means.

As for what I mean I will make myself perfectly clear.
Any homosexual male who wish’s to be a scout leader is there for his own sexual gratification. He is a pedophile and he is looking for a target rich environment.

I won’t say all Homosexuals are Pedophiles. I will say why take that chance with our youth? Keep Homosexuals away from kids.We don’t need them bending our childrens minds.Homosexuals are a rapid spreading disease that is reaching epidemic proportions.

I am sorry but one can’t hide behind the label pedophile because it is a much worse word than homosexual. But someone can definitely be a homosexual and a pedophile.

The obvious question to ask is why would a homosexual (who is not a parent of a boy in the troop) want to get involved in scout leadership? It is very difficult to imagine a 100% pure self-sacrificing motive.

Wouldn’t someone look with suspicion on a man who volunteers to be the towel boy for a junior high girls volleyball team?

I guess my point is why take the risk? Are the Boy Scouts so short on qualified leaders that it needs to take in gays as leaders? After all, the Boy Scouts is all about the needs of the boys. It is not intended to be about the need of scout leaders, gay or straight.

The main stream media has gone all out to portray the Roman Catholic Church’s problems with a segment of their priests as “pedophiles”. Funny how the gender of the abused children is almost exclusively male.

Face it, male homosexuals desire young boys, and I don’t mean 16-year-olds, either. Younger, much younger....

Maybe we ought to have men go on campouts with the Girl Scouts. After all, just cause a guy is heterosexual doesn’t mean he’s a pedophile, right?

To me, the issue is simple. If the homosexuals believe that the public at large wants homosexuals in the scouting, they can start up their own operation instead of high-jacking an existing one. Heck, they can afford to spring for fabulous uniforms and gear, too, and waive all fees.

With all those incentives, won’t parents and children be stampeding for the new and improved version?

The assumption Huckabee is clearly making is all gay people are pedophiles, or a large percentage of gay people are pedophiles.

Yes, because that assumption is true. According to an essentially pro-homosexual (i.e. "anti-discrimination") course I took to be certified to work with kids, a homosexual male is 5 times as likely as a random male to abuse children. As I recall, the figure, which was undoubtedly weighted so as to make homos look less bad, was 4 percent of men at large, vs. 20 percent of homosexual men.

In a related example, a friend in the entertainment industry was discussing homosexual adoption with a colleague. He was a homosexual himself. His response was, "Homosexuals adopting children? Are they CRAZY?"

We pray for him. He obviously has a weakness, but he has some integrity and a stake in civilization.

"I am sorry but one can’t hide behind the label pedophile because it is a much worse word than homosexual".

But someone (like the author) can say that someone is a pedophile because he molested a child and therefore cannot be a homosexual. In effect they are hiding behind the label of pedophilia.

“every male pedophile who preys on boys is a homosexual.”

Not really. He could be a bisexual. You can’t assume that a man who appears to be a heterosexual isn’t also attracted to males, especially male teens. That’s why we really on 2-deep leadership.

Ummm.....Scout leaders are never alone with a boy and surely not sharing a space like that. We enforce that rigidly.
Boy Scouting is eat up with lesbians. They are drawn to the outdoorsy butch thing with their sons. I used to run into them all the time at Scout camp. They keep their mouths shut about it.
There was talk about creating a gay-friendly version of Scouts but gay men don’t trust each other like that. They’d never let their son join because they know it would be a predator’s dream.

What's the difference? We all know they like boys. I put this in the same category as Sandusky. Spanier didn't want to report it because it might hurt the gay agenda he brought with him to Penn State.

Yes, I was once watching an A&E biography on the (gay) American playwright Tennesse Williams. His brother was interviewed in the segment, and he said, “My brother was a natural born homosexual, and he liked boys, and the younger the better.” He nailed it.

Bingo. Truth, and no one can argue with it. A man who looks specifically for BOYS is NOT acting in a heterosexual way. There are many points of contact between the homosexual and the pedophile, but the Rainbow Agenda says, no, no, no.

mountains of evidence that shows that pedophilia and homosexuality are different things

Yes, mountains of evidence sponsored by the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA).

I knew a gay guy in college that loved to quip "Love those fat butt boys."

Wouldn't it seem logical that the second perversion would be easier to adopt than the first?

Could homosexuality serve as a "gateway" perversion?

“Could homosexuality serve as a “gateway” perversion?”

Indeed, I think it is a gateway - while not specifically to pedophilia, (if the object of attention here would be ages 5-10 or so) at least to seeking out minors (age 13-15). This in itself could lead to “exceptions” (an occasional 10 or 11 year old).

While pedophilia may be different from homosexuality, with male on male sexuality I would say it is a difference not in kind, but in degree. Hence the danger of a slippery slope. But of course Mr. Badash will have none of this.

correct, funny how the pro queer media ignore that point.
As soon as a man tocuhes a boy then not only is he a child molester but also a homosexual and therefore should be counted but alas we look at most serial killers in this country and how they too were either homosexuals, cross dressers or had sidings for it.

Lets face facts you and I kno this but so many are ignorant about facts and instead repeat the same old tired line or”well I know a couple and they are nice”

Just wrote this on another thread if you get the time.

peaking of which I’ve just got back from the marine recruiting office as my oldest wanted to go.
\The marine asked me if I had questions and I told him that I did and went on to ask about will he be forced to share a room, share a shower or even a sleeping bag during survival training etc.

Lets put it this way the military now is nothing but a political correctness establishment and his reply was/

“no sir he would never be forced to do anything like that and that would never happen or no one would ever come onto your son”

I asked what guarantee could you give and what does he mean he would not be forced into sharing a room etc.

His reply was” well, this would never happen and if your son felt he did not want to share a room then he would not do so” etc etc etc.
Then said the members of the military would never do that , oh really how about Manning, marching in freak parades in uniform, 4 homo marines in CA who lied to get married quarters etc.

The marine was full of B/S who went on to tell me his record was serving 4 years with the President.

I asked that women have a different qualification to get in but can they serve along side my son to which he replied no they do the same physical except pulls ups, running and weight.

er that is different not the same and yes they can now go to combat along side my son even though they have not done the same physical tests.

One pull up to get in for a woman, two for a guy.

To finish training he said 4 pulls ups, 55 sits ups in two mins, and a 3 mile run in shorts , sneakers and shirt in 28 mins.

Hell I can still do that now, where as the British royal marine commando have to go 30 miles across cross country , swamps, marches and hills in 8 hours and carry their battle kit. Don’t allow women or women in combat

Just what on earth has happened to the Pentagon, the military etc?

Will Romney and the GOP have any guts to overturn this madness, hell no.

Our sons will be old enough to join the Boy Scouts in a few years. And what bothers me about the prospect of gay leaders is not so much that my sons might be molested (though of course that concerns me deeply). What I see as a more immediate and hard to fight danger is simply holding someone with obvious homosexual tendencies up to boys as a “leader” and someone to emulate. Here in California, I see young men all the time who are not gay ... but who ACT like the biggest queers on the planet. They have picked up these queer mannerisms as being somehow cool, and I swear I meet young men all the time who lisp, posture and generally act like queens. Yet they are shacking up with young women, etc., so if they are indeed gay it’s only part-time. I am forced to conclude that a very gay-friendly culture, like we have here in CA, promotes the posturing that we see in the gay culture. I DO NOT want my boys picking that up as being “cool.”

I enrolled my son in scouts up in Virginia. Come to find out, the scout leader was a lesbian.

Went to a couple of gatherings, not knowing this was the scout leader. I just thought it was some butchy lady helping out.

Nope......dyed in the wool diesel dike.

If the homosexuals believe that the public at large wants homosexuals in the scouting, they can start up their own operation instead of high-jacking an existing one.

YES!

They can call it the Queer Brigade. With those pretty pink and taupe little butt tight uniforms you just know mommy will want her little boy dressed to kill, eating arugula and learning the niceties of playing the flute. After all, this is the 21 century. We are sooo modern and sooo tolerant.

Uh, male on male sex, young or old, is homosexual behavior. The fact that the queer chose to have sex with a minor male makes him a homosexual pedophile.

Here is a letter from one of the Navigators leaders to the NY Times:

“Letter to the NY Times Edotors 7/20/12
To the Editor:
It is a sad day for parents and children across America who will miss out on the scouting experience because of the decision, yet again, of the Boy Scouts of America to exclude gays. In 2000, I was scoutmaster of Troop 103 in East Harlem, which started in a homeless shelter, when the Supreme Court ruled that the Boy Scouts of America could discriminate.
In 2003, many volunteers and I started Navigators USA, a coed, secular scouting organization whose founding principles are based on exactly the issues the Boy Scouts of America refuses to address. The top priority for future generations is to be more than tolerant, to understand and celebrate our differences without fear or prejudice.
The Boy Scouts of America does not own scouting. It is time to give all people the scouting experience.

APNewsBreak: Boy Scouts reaffirm ban on gays
July 17, 2012

“... The announcement suggests that hurdles may be high for a couple of members of the (volunteer) national executive board — Ernst & Young CEO James Turley and AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson — who have recently indicated they would try to work from within to change the policy. Both of their companies have been commended by gay-rights groups for gay-friendly employment policies. ...”

AT&T CEO Stephenson is next in line to assume the top position of president of the executive board in 2014.

AT&T and Ernst&Young are both members of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (currently has 119 corporate members)

“Huckabee ignored the fact hat the man’s abuser was actually a pedophile, not a homosexual”

The author ignores the fact that Dan Savage, a frequent visitor to the White House, asserts that there are “Good Pedophiles”.

Now that was easy.

First, heterosexuals do commit sex crimes with children. Maybe homosexuals are more likely to do so. But that isn’t the point.

If you have a male leader, and male kids, then it doesn’t matter if the scout leader might have been tempted to get sexual with a teenage girl, since there won’t be any teenage girls around.

The problem with gay attraction is it is unnatural logically — you can’t create a group with gay people that doesn’t risk sexual attraction.

Many boy scouts are past puberty, so it isn’t really “pedophilia” — it’s minor homosexual sex.

And it is also likely that homosexuals ARE more likely to entertain sex with younger partners, because homosexuality appears to be an opportunity-based sexuality, and with much fewer homosexuals available, it is necessary for homosexuals to go after a group that is still ambiguous and confused about sexuality, or can be coerced into sex acts, thus they go after teenagers.
