Well, not so shocking, especially while the Pope is embroiled in the latest wave of Catholic church sex abuse cover ups and desperately trying to hold onto his funny hat, the Boy Scouts of America is also being sued for the same thing. In the Catholic church and the BSA - as sad as it is - it seems Young Boys are the new Hot Babe. Hey, just callin' it like I see it. The more anti-gay the org, the more they seem to protect pedophiles.
Defenders of the Boy Scouts anti-gay policies claim it gives good young man experience. Well, my memories of “good young man experience” have nothing to do with boy scouts. The main thing a young man in this crazy diverse world needs to learn is to respect all others.
With BULLYCIDE in the news lately, the BSA (and the Catholic Church) sends a message that there are those in society who are 2nd class, who are not ‘right’, and thus its okay to discriminate against these others, kick them around the playground and make their lives a living Hell. Basically, the BSA’s “good young man experience” is Intolerance 101.
