Scout Leaders and Priests…

What do they have in common?  They appear to be serial pederasts and pedophiles.  And they protect their perverts from prosecution.

Ore. Lawsuit Claims Boy Scout Sex Abuse Coverup 

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – 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 all change in the coming weeks in an Oregon courtroom.

The lawyer for a man who was molested in the 1980s by a Scout leader has obtained about 1,000 Boy Scouts sex files and is expected to release some of them at a trial that began Wednesday. The lawyer says the files show how the Boy Scouts have covered up abuse for decades.

And another thing the Scouts leaders and priest have in common is Jesus.  Or God in general.  One must profess faith in God to be a Boy Scout.  They have made it quite clear that atheists need not apply and even model Scouts that have been pillars of their communities have been forced out when revealed to be Godless heathens.

At the start of the Oregon trial, attorney Kelly Clark recited the Boy Scout oath and the promise to obey Scout law to be “trustworthy.” Then he presented six boxes of documents that he said will show “how the Boy Scouts of America broke that oath.”

He held up file folder after file folder he said contained reports of abuse from around the country, telling the jury the efforts to keep them secret may have actually set back efforts to prevent child abuse nationally.

So all that believe in God stuff is required to be a good citizen.  But abusing boys and covering it up is acceptable standards for the Boy Scouts of America?

“The Boy Scouts of America ignored clear warning signs that Boy Scouts were being abused,” Clark said.

The Boy Scouts of America  have mounted legal assaults on young kids that did not believe in God, and gays,  to keep them from joining their sick organization.  The Scouts, like the Catholic Church are a hypocritical lot.  They both are quick to sue or bring out their legal guns to stifle anything that disturbs them yet their closets are full of criminals that they protect.  The Boy Scouts of America seem like a fairly benign organization, bu they have used their legal power to prevent any other youth group from using the word Scout in the name of their organization.  They claim they have the rights to that word.  They have kept out agnostics and atheists because they state one must believe in God to be a real American of worth.  They have kept out gays yet prey sexually on boys in their care.  And, the Boy Scouts of America get tax dollar funded training through the use of government facilities and organizations from fire departments to the FBI.  Yet they can  discriminate in who they allow to join them.

So…I  hope that the hypocrisy of the Scouts gets  the publicity it deserves and their culpability in protecting sexual predators causes them much grief.  People in glass houses should not throw stones.  Isn’t there a merit badge for learning that lesson?

And, a hat tip to Jonathan Turley for pointing out this story.
