To the Boy Scouts: Social Justice Demands Protection of Children

As a former homosexual who was sexually molested as a child, I urge the Boy Scouts of America to reinforce their policy prohibiting homosexuals as Scout leaders entrusted with the care of impressionable young boys and teens.

So, is he trying to say that all non heterosexual males are child molesters. That tired old fear mongering tactic has been proven wrong again and again. More heterosexual males are convicted of pedophilia than non heterosexual males. And what of the children who are non heterosexual. Should the be denied the invaluable experience of the Boy Scout program, just because of their sexual persuasion. Their policy is archaic, and I am glad to see that they are revising it. Their new policy lets each unit decide for itself, so, if a unit wants to remain in the dark ages, it can.

I agree. I also believe that discriminating because of sexual orientation is tantamount to a hate crime.

Why don't they just start their own "scouting" group? The could call themselves The Rump Rangers and hold their annual Rainbow Jamboree in San Fran.

They don't have to. The Boy Scouts have decided to no longer be a backwards, archaic, intolerant, bigoted organization.

Then don't go to church. Read Marx again, smuggle arms to the Taliban or something. Perhaps you could help Obama find better ways to subvert the Constitution?

I don't go to church, I go to shul, and the U.S. constitution doesn't apply to me, so no interest there. But thanks anyway.
