We care deeply about all victims of child abuse and sincerely apologize to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We believe victims, we support them, and we have paid for unlimited counseling by a provider of their choice, the organization said in a statement to ABC News. Nothing is more important than the safety and protection of children in Scouting and we are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to abuse innocent children.
Of course, there's no mention of opening the BSA to homosexuals and doing things like handing out condoms at jamborees. There is, however, one sentence that hints this is a mostly recent development, "Warrens number shows a significant jump in that number [of abuse cases] and Anderson is calling for the Boy Scouts of America to make the list public."
All of these trends (aka Slippery Slope) were predicted here in FR since the founding of the website.
If only Boy Scout leaders were allowed to marry, this wouldn’t have happened.
Yay! Diversity! Yay! Gender Equality!
Blowing Sodomites of America...
If men stayed with their baby mommas, the BS would not have to turn over their troops to women and homos.
This is another example of the complete decline of the American family.
Its a damn shame.
Thanks Rex you idiot and by the way AGW is total BS.
Any wonder gays were able to “force” their membership into the BSA? THEY WERE ALREADY THERE...IN DROVES.
So you open up your organization to a victim group that by its very nature practices sodomy and youre surprised that boys were sodomized???
But its ok cuz you PAID for counseling for those boys? Ummm hmmmm
No counseling would have been necessary had you not welcomed sodomites into your home. No amount of money will fix those boys. None. But Im sure that was the plan all along. Damaged people
Allowing gays to be scoutmasters is like allowing Errol Flynn to be in charge of a high school girl’s volleyball team. They are like kids in a candy store.
Sue and lock up the molesters!
The Cultural Marxist’s relentless assault on American identity and traditions continues unabated, with the ultimate objective of teasing apart and unraveling America’s mainstream fabric. Soon, Norman Rockwell will be branded as a neo-Nazi fascist, and all of his paintings and reprints of Americana will be outlawed from personal possession and public view. They know exactly what they’re doing, while America continues to ignore their “big picture” objective in favor of reacting to its numerous manifested symptoms.
And that, boys and girls, is why democrats should never be Scout Masters.
My thoughts too.
It’s been going on for years. I was molested by Scoutmaster in the 60’s as well as some of the rest of the troop.
Troop was sponsored by the Catholic parish no less.
Unlike so many Hollywood types, I don’t believe it was a huge deal that ruined the rest of my life. Just an unhappy memory that I wrote off as being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
It would be nice to see the BSA leaders, like Tillerson, held personally liable for much of what’s happened, since this is exactly what was predicted, with the RC Church as an example.
If only boy scout troop leaders could marry. Then, this problem would go away.
These go back quite a ways. I wonder what the total is when second or third generation victims are added in as well. Let alone the unreported plus their second and third generation victims.
Amen and it is seriously depressing. The left knows how to game the system and the political wing of our side (the GOP) goes along with it.
When I was in Boy Scouts, the wonderful leaders decided to retire and concentrate on their own families and they brought in a new one.
One day, the parents and the associated Church had a meeting and the guy was gone.
I never figured out why but I’m pretty sure I know why.
