Time to End Federal Support of Boy Scout Discrimination | Atheists in Foxholes News

Jul 18, 2012 | Posted by: Hedonist | Full story: blog.militaryatheists.org

The Boy Scouts of America holds a Congressional Charter while discriminating against atheists. The BSA ejects openly atheist members and leaders, even those that have reached the highest ranks of the organization. The values, community, and service so fundamental to the BSA would provide an even greater service to the nation if they would promote respect for all beliefs, including atheism.

The Boy Scouts should NOT be allowed to use tax-payer supported facilities, nor recieve public funds, or public support of ANY KIND whatsoever.

Brown Lipstick (Fred P. Phelps) and I go back a long, long, long, time. We designed a Christ-centered sex curriculum for young boys and I recall the wonderful presentations that "Brown Lipstick" (Fred P. Phelps)gave to the ripe young lads in order to help them squelch their passions.

Brown Lipstick stood on a podium at the Temple of the Chosen Few, stripped naked for Christ and then proceeded to give the chaste members of the glorious Vacation Bible School the following advice on dating...Says Brown Lipstick with his skivvies on the floor, "Boys, this is what I do to avoid becoming a sodomite. In the event that I have not had a nightly emission, or masturbated to a picture of Christ, before my heterosexual date, I make certain that I take extra precaution. I use an ace bandage or knitting yarn to tie my Christ-centered penis back against my stomach or underneath my hiney. If I tuck instead of tie, I make sure that the tip of my penis does not curl back far enough to enter the hole in my hiney where I go poopy out of - otherwise I might accidentally sodomize myself and inadvertently become a homosexual." This has been extremely helpful advice from Brown Lipstick. He might even claim to be a female due to his natural modesty on atheist forums as he tends to be more open about his chastity, his virginity, on Christian forums. Praise!

We mean the Gay Atheists.

Four Oregon men plan to sue the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday over childhood sexual abuse they say they suffered at the hands of a pedophile knowingly appointed as their scoutmaster in the 1970s, their lawyer said. The lawsuits, to be filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court in Portland, accuse the national Boy Scouts of negligence and fraud in connection with the repeated molestation of the men, then aged 12 to 15, their lawyer, Kelly Clark, told Reuters. The suits are the latest in a barrage of such claims facing the Boy Scouts, headquartered in Texas, since the organization was found liable and ordered to pay nearly $20 million in damages last year for a pedophile case from the 1980s.

Last year's trial shed light on records the BSA kept on suspected or confirmed sexual abuse by leaders and volunteers. The jury was permitted to review 20,000 pages from what were termed the "perversion files" or "ineligible volunteer files," dating from 1965 to 1985 before rendering a verdict. The lawsuit claims the BSA was aware since the 1960's that “scouting posed a danger to adolescent boys because historically noticeable numbers of adult volunteers...were discovered to be child molesters.” Those files show that during the 20-year period, an average of nearly 60 leaders or volunteers a year were discovered molesting children, Clark said. The Boy Scouts dispute that figure, and the organization is fighting to keep those documents from being made public in a case awaiting a ruling by the Oregon Supreme Court.

All four bringing suit in the new case claim they were abused in the 1970s by then-scoutmaster Steven Terry Hill, who was put in charge of their troop even though the Boy Scouts learned he had been accused of molesting three other boys while serving as a Scout leader in California, Clark said. The plaintiffs also allege that the Boy Scouts organization became aware that Hill was molesting boys in Portland's Troop 76 but did nothing to stop it, according to Clark. Hill was acquitted in the late 1970s of sex abuse charges related to the Boy Scouts in Portland. But he was convicted in 1991 on four counts of sodomy and furnishing drugs and alcohol to a minor stemming from an unrelated sex-abuse case involving a 17-year-old boy. He was released from prison in 2011 after serving 20 years, Clark said. A deposition Hill gave while incarcerated, and other corroborating evidence, suggests that the California Scouts council arranged for him to be transferred to Portland where, in 1976, he founded Troop 76, an elite group of 76 scouts whose mission was “high adventure” activities like river rafting and mountain climbing, Clark said.

James Hopper, a clinical psychology instructor at Harvard Medical School, said it is not unusual for adults to wait many years to reveal sexual abuse from their childhood, especially for males, who may feel greater shame from their ordeals. "You have stories of abuse emerging from the Catholic Church and other institutions; now it's the Boy Scouts' turn," he said. Clark said “You don’t have to be trained or anything. You just show up and raise your hand and swear and you’re a volunteer.”“So while the percent of volunteers in the Boy Scouts who were abusers is, we believe, much smaller, the numbers are relatively large, and the number of victims could be the same or worse (than in the Catholic church)”.

Whose hate is starting to show now foxy? You people are fluckin dangerous to even think of tinkering with the Boy Scouts of America. But hey, you're just proving how dangerous and out of control your agenda really is. Look at yourself! This is the Boy Scouts for God's sake!
Yes, the Boy Scouts. And because of their discriminatory polices, my church kicked them out of our building. They're a hateful and hate-filled organization for not allowing gayboys to be members.

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.

Nope. Project if you must but I recently got engaged to the most beautiful woman in the world.

I'm sure you have read my posts but it's obvious that comprehension is not a skill you rank highly in. You proven it all through this thread.
