    My son was an Eagle Scout and I have been involved in scouting since the mid 90's. This case refers to a creep who was terrorizing boys in the late 80's. Since that time, Scouts implemented a "Two deep" rule that means no scout is ever alone with an adult. Boys are prohibited from sleeping in tents with any adult but their father. If you go to a restroom, you are prohibited from entering with the boys and must wait outside until they leave. Trips are cancelled if there are not enough adults to ensure these rules are followed.

    The scouts also do checks on all adult volunteers and I bellieve these lists are a way to track any adult who may move from one troop to another. Yes, they may be secret, but you can't publish lists like this on people who have not been convicted but are only suspected.

    It doesn't mean child molesters still can't ever get access to boys, but the Organization takes its responsibility to protect the boys very seriously

    :eek: Golly... :eek: That's probably why they're so determined to keep Homosexuals out of the scouts.

    Something told me that there was a good reason for that...

    I don't think the Boy Scouts have a gay pride merit badge. Rightfully so.

    The same assholes whining about this are the same assholes whining about gays not being allowed to be Scout leader.

    When I was a cubscout leader, there had to be two of us. Most places have that policy in effect including most churches now.

    The scary part in all of this is that male/male child molestation is predominantly regressed heterosexuals commiting the crimes. Child molestation is all about power and the sex gives them the power these sick bastards seek. You have all kinds of men with different sexual orientations committing male/male abuse. Homosexuals, like heterosexuals, also committ child molestation. Only a small minority of homosexuals, just like a small minority of heterosexuals, has a sexual interest in children.
    I have investigated a few rape cases over the years where it was a gay man raping a straight woman. Regressed offenders have developed an adult sexual orientation, usually for the opposite sex as a heterosexual, but return to sex with children from many societal influences they can not deal with.
    These sick shits can never be cured. Lock them up and throwing away the key works for me.

    It isn't gay people doing the abuse, it is pedophiles. Learn the difference, idiot.

    That is why specialists classify pedophilia as it's own sexual orientation.
    And more so called heterosexuals molest children than homosexuals do.
