The funny thing about the Boy Sprouts.....

They don't allow homosexuals.

....

However -- a man in wearing shorts and a handkerchief around his neck is going to sleep in a tent in the woods with a bunch of boys -- and we are to believe that "nothing's going on".....


suuuuureee......

Sounds legit........

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

The BSA has a massive fail on getting the difference between pedophiles and homosexuals. In order to avoid kids getting molested, there is a "two deep" leadership policy that is intended to avoid this. Every time you see a case of molestation, the leader in question was on an outing alone with the boys. That is not the policy, and the parents who are trusting the guy are fools. I was once in the leadership of a troop whose Scoutmaster was always saying that there was only going to be one leader on an outing. I kept hammering him that there was no outing without a minimum of 2 leaders. They always managed to scrape up enough adults. Never had a problem, either.

Unfortunately, they are the not the only ones who can't see that those two groups are not synonymous. Undecided

We have on our island one of the largest, if not the largest, BSA camp in the US. My brother in law and I took a tour recently because he was considering sending his son and daughter there next summer.

I learned quite a few things regarding implemetation of safety for the kids.

1) Those who attend come as troops, not individually.
2) Each troop MUST HAVE two adult leaders.
3) A troop leader is never allowed to be one on one with a scout, either the other troop leader is present or another scout is present.
4) If, for instance, the troop was going sailing and one of the scouts is ill and has to stay back then one of the troop leaders AND another scout must remain behind as well.

I found that this protocol gave us some peace of mind.

Truth is, the BSA doesn't want their youth molested. Protocols like these above virtually remove the threat of pedophiles. When I was a Merit Badge Counselor, there were at least two scouts or a parent or other leader present. If for nothing else, it protects me, in case the kid comes up with some strange ideas.

This is why I never shut my office door when meeting with a student. (Also why some priests have been switching to glass confessionals, or confession on the altar in full view, after the sex-abuse coverup; under the new regulations you're suspended and treated as guilty until proven innocent if there's an allegation.)
