“As for the rest of us, leave the scouts alone so that there is at least one organization left in the country that respects God and does what it can to protect children and raise them with love of God, love of Biblical teachings, love of country, love of individual responsibility, and love of family.”
Please show me one place where I said the scouts should allow homosexual scout leaders. In fact, in one posting I noted I felt the scouts have every right to exclude homosexuals based on their moral philosophy. The scouts have never argued they don’t allow homosexuals because they are afraid of molestation. They have always argued they excluded them based on their moral stand. I am arguing a point about facts not about what we’d like to believe about the issue of who molests children.
If you think excluding homosexuals from scouts stops molestation of boy scouts you need to take your blinders off. Any group that mixes boys and adult males is bound to attract men who have sexual predation in mind. Boy scouts do get molested by scout masters even with the rules against homosexuals. I two adult men who were molested by scout masters when they were in scouts, and in both cases the scout masters were married with children. Child molesters are all too often pillars of the community.
If you think excluding homosexuals from scouts stops molestation of boy scouts you need to take your blinders off.
If you think that allowing homosexuals (who are open about their homosexuality and therefore acknowledging that their sexual orientation is of greater importance than being a scout leader) is a good idea and that parents should feel safe leaving their children in their trust, then you are the one who needs to take the blinders off.
