There are so many things wrong with this, the selfishness and narcissism of the homosexual adult males, front and center. It's not about what's good for the boys; it's about what's good for THEM and their cause. They are using the boy scouts to legitimize themselves.

August 6, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- The pro-homosexual “marriage” group that sued to redefine marriage in Utah is preparing to establish a Boy Scout troop open to gay leaders, making the announcement just over a week after the Boy Scouts of America lifted its ban on homosexual leaders.

The head of Restore Our Humanity made the announcement at a Tuesday press conference, saying that welcoming gay leaders could create new interest in the Boy Scouts and that the new Utah troop could be a model for the future.

"I think it's important for us to do this now," Mark Lawrence said.

They intend to complete an application soon and look to have a troop going by the fall, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Restore Our Humanity was formed to strike down Utah’s marriage protection law, Amendment 3. The group filed a lawsuit in the pursuit of this, identifying lawyers and homosexual couples to be plaintiffs in the litigation responsible for the 2013 overturning of the law.

“For a healthy society to prosper and move forward, communities and the organizations attached to them must abandon exclusion and prejudices,” the group’s statement on the proposed new homosexual-friendly Boy Scout troop said. “The Boy Scouts of America has moved our society just a little closer to that end.”

Restore Our Humanity estimated that 95 percent of Utah’s Boy Scout troops are sponsored by the Mormon Church, and contended that the numbers show “there is a significant population of young people that are left behind and neglected.”

Lawrence said getting the troop approved and running may be “an uphill battle in the conservative state where most troops are sponsored by the Mormon Church,” the Salt Lake Tribune report said.

The Boy Scouts made the announcement July 27 that it would no longer prohibit homosexual leaders, in a much-expected decision that followed a 2013 reversal on the Boy Scouts’ ban of homosexual members.

The Boy Scouts stated that faith-based troops could still select their leaders based on their religious beliefs, however the statement did not specifically state that religiously-affiliated troops would not be compelled to accept leaders who identify as gay, leaving some religious leaders wary.

More than 70 percent of Boy Scout troops chartered in the U.S. are sponsored by religious organizations, and a large percentage of those are sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon Church).

The Mormon Church issued a statement July 27 saying the church was “deeply troubled” by the decision to allow homosexual leaders, and it would be reexamining its association with the Boy Scouts later this month.

“The admission of openly gay leaders is inconsistent with the doctrines of the Church and what have traditionally been the values of the Boy Scouts of America,” the Mormons added.

I agree.

Whatever.


I had a gay Girl Scout leader when I was about 12. She took us camping an everything, and somehow no one got abused or anything. Only one girl from my troop turned out to be gay as an adult, and if you'd ever met her father and/or brother, you would not think it was the result of a gay Girl Scout leader's influence.

It's fine that you had no problems with the gay Girl Scout leader, but it is purely anecdotal. What one person did in the Detroit area years ago doesn't mean that boy scouts today are safe from harrasment from a gay troop leader. Young kids are in their formative years and many wouldn't have the courage to push back from advances.

The son of a friend was approached by a gay priest. I don't think anythingphysically happened, but the young man still was traumatized.

Personally, I don't think it's worth taking the chance, but the progressives are in charge now. No wonder Trump is still leading the polls. People around the country are sick of stuff like this.

I patted a bull on the head when I was a kid and nothing happened and I grew up I think it would be a great idea to put all children in pastures with bulls just to see what would happen.

This post proves I can make up a pile of bull just as well as you can.

Rockntractor - PhD - piled higher and deeper.

These libs have no chance against a good ol' country boy.

The younger ya put the kids out in the pasture, the better it is for them. Even an old bull can't resist a cute smile.

Girl Scouts had one sex abuse case in the last 20 years and it involved a male leader, who molested 8 different girls on a camping trip. They've been allowing gays and lesbians in their organization since at least the 70s, when I was a scout. I'd say that's a pretty good track record, especially compared to the Boy Scouts, which is just now allowing openly gay men to be Scout leaders, but has had countless sex abuse cases in that same time frame.

Other than pointing out that men are the vast majority of sexual offenders, gay or straight, the point here is that all-male environments are conducive to sexual abuse. Boy Scouts, the priesthood of the Catholic Church and the locker room at Penn State are all good examples of that. Having women around prevents it a good part of the time.

Anytime you leave your child with a man-teacher, priest, scout leader, etc, you are risking that your child will be sexually abused. That is the reality. I don't think sexual orientation has anything to do with it, but it appears that the Y chromosome does.
