“The issue, however, is that gay men are attracted to males. Boy scouts are males. It’s too dangerous a combination.”
No, gay men are attracted to adult men, straight men are attracted to adult women. If you are attracted to children you are a pedophile (whether you are gay or straight). Statistically, gay men are no more likely to be pedophiles than straight men. The reason for keeping gay men out of scouting has nothing to do with the a fear they will molest boys, but because they view gay men as not in keeping with their moral code, and the scouts have every right to do that. The scouts also won’t allow gay young men to become scouts.

What a load of misguided untruths!!! Homosexual activists routinely claim that most child molesters are heterosexual males, thus shifting the focus away from their own very high rates of molestation. Since 98-99% of the population is heterosexual, it is technically correct to say that most molestations are done by heterosexuals. However, statistics indicate that homosexuals pose a far more serious threat to children than do heterosexuals. In 1987, Dr. Stephen Rubin of Whitman College conducted a ten-state study of sex abuse cases involving school teachers. He studied 199 cases. Of those, 122 male teachers had molested girls, while 14 female teachers had molested boys. He also discovered that 59 homosexual male teachers had molested boys and four female homosexual teachers had molested girls. In other words, 32 percent of those child molestation cases involved homosexuals. Nearly a third of these cases come from only 1-2% of the population.
I was a scoutmaster and on council staff with the Boy Scouts of America for 11 years in NE Ohio. And can state that 100% of the child molestations and attempted molestations were in fact homosexual in nature.
