    No it is not. Boy Scouts are expected to be religious, not necessarily Christian. Most scout masters will turn a blind eye to this along with homosexuality.

    These situations will arise whenever adults are left alone with children like they often are in scouts and other youth organizations. Religion is irrelevant.

    Boys and leaders have been kicked out for admitting they don't believe in God.

    At the unit level, for the most part, all that matters is the program and the boys. Most leaders I know hate how the LDS church has such a stranglehold on BSA. The stupid, non-boys-welfare decisions are made much higher than the local council level.

    Yes, but things like this rarely ever reach that level. The troop doesn't make a big deal about it most of the time.

    True. Usually something happens when someone lodges a complaint that catches some political mucky muck's eyes. Or if a story gets local press. A great leader was kicked out when he was exposed as being gay. He went through the entire program earning his Arrow of Light and Eagle Scout badge, the highest honors in the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts respectively. He then went into a leadership position. When a local paper ran a story on him the issue of his being gay came up. When asked, he was honest. (To this day a few of us still believe he was set up.) BSA got wind of it and he was kicked out. It sucked. This kid was a born leader. His sexual orientation in no way hindered his positive impact on the rest of the boys. This is just one more way that religions and churches, in their arrogance, can **** up a good thing.

    It's a shame. Boy Scouts is such a great organiztion. Too bad that it has to have such a stupid rule.

    so 1000 "suspected" in 20 years?



    They all should have been at least kicked out and shame on the BSA for coverig it up, but to call it "preavalant" is unneeded hyperbole.
    You act like 1,000 suspected pedophiles in 20 years is a small number. That is 50 every year. That is 50 possible pedophiles who have little kids under their wing. Say the average troupe has 9-10 kids in it. That is nearly 10,000 kids who've may have been molested in 20 years. Doesn't sound like a small number when you realize we're only talking about a span of 20 years. We're not even talking about the last 30. No. This is really not hyperbole.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Boy Scouts of America Keep Secret Dossier on Extensive Sex AbusesCease with the personal attacks - enough already!
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
