The Boy Scouts of America has long kept an extensive archive of secret documents that chronicle the sexual abuse of young boys by scout leaders over the years. The "perversion files", a nickname the Boy Scouts are said to have used for the documents, have rarely been seen by the public, but that could change in the coming weeks in an Oregon courtroom. The lawyer for a man who was molested in the 1980's by a scout leader has obtained about 1,000 Boy Scout sex files and is expected to release some of them at a trial that began Wednesday. The lawyer said the files showed how the Boy Scouts have covered up abuse for decades. The attorney for the Boy Scouts said the that the files helped scouting leaders weed out sex offenders, especially repeat offenders who may have changed names or moved in order to join another local scouting organization.
The ultimate downfall of the Boy Scouts will be the inability to tell the difference between sex orientation and paraphilia

It is a proven fact that adult homosexuals are always on the lookout for young men to seduce into the queer lifestyle. That's how they got caught up in this twisted, perverted way of life and they are desperate to destroy the lives of other young innocents. What kind of parent would want mentally unstable homosexuals attending to their young boys at a camp? We send our children to the Boy Scouts to get them away from this kind of sick behavior that is being taught in the public school system, not to be the "entree" on some pervert's sexual menu. I applaud the BSA!

Gay guys are born with the same sex orientation you mother was born with; attracted to men

Is your mother on the lookout to seduce young men?

Agreed. As a private organization BSA have the right to determine their own course. When I was a Scout we learned woodscraft, camping, first aid, and had an honor code. When I was a minor and a young adult tried to get me to come to a party where boys played with boys, is that what you were talking about?

Are there? And the fact that Heterosexuals outnumber homosexuals by about 99 to 1 proves that homosexuality produces a much larger percentage of pedophile predators.
There's also a very strong correlation between criminal behavior and homosexuality...
The reality is, homosexual behavior is linked with pedophilia and criminal behavior...
Gay pedophiles - a fine line between your average homosexual and your gay pedophile, always gravitate towards careers that give them access to children. Teachers,'football' coaches, "alter boys" and on and on.
First of all, if you think straights outnumber gays by 99 to 1, you might also believe the moon is made of cheddar cheese. Secondly, you haven't the foggiest idea what percentages of those two groups are pedophiles.
Whatever those percentages might be, you are referring to very small minorities in each group. The vast majorities of both heterosexuals and homosexuals are not pedophiles, yet you seem to think that vilifying all gay people is an intelligent point of view.
Pedophilia is a serious social problem, whether straight or gay. You would be wise to confine your criticism to those who practice it.

No one needs Sanduskies in the Boy Scouts. Better to be safe than sorry.

The BSA is not safe from "Sanduskies". It is riddled with them. Remember that Sandusky was able to hide his true identity for many years.

Yeah, it's called "in the closet." I appeal to all homosexual's to "come out." That way we know what kind of disorder we're dealing with.

Why don't they just combine sleep outs with the girl scouts and boy scouts if they're going to allow gays. No guy is going to want to sleep in a tent with another guy he thinks "likes" him. ha ha ha ha ha!

They want access to children period. Homosexuals make up only 2% of the population.

Wrong again, O clueless one. Not only am I still alive, I'm gettin' "porked" all over the place. I'll be back in Ohio soon and we can talk. And do other stuff I know you like. When you wanna find me I'll be servicin' truckers behind that strip mall by our old trailer park.

Sorry about droppin' you on your head so many times when you was a baby. But you gotta admit you deserved it.

We are not talking about pedophilia - but what is refered to as endophilia - post puebescent young men,,, 12, 13-17 range..

Yes homosexula men dispoportionatly molest young boys as compared to there percentage of the population..

Think "twinkies"

It is even part of gay "high" culture - I'm thinking of Eve Unslers "the Vagina Monolgues" or the Poem "the Kiss" - both concerning teenage initaiation into sexuality by older adults.

Why are people such buttholes when comes to people's sexual orientation? I don't get why people seem to so afraid of someone who is gay. What a load of crap for the BSA to pull something like this.
