I did scouts with my oldest grandson for two years. I don't know that any of the scouts were gay, boy scouts or cubs, and I doubt any of the leaders were. But there were several ( imho) weirdo's involved in it all. I just chalked up up to people being what they are and not worrying much about it. Live and let live, yanno.
I did it for my grandson to be involved, met some very nice people. I never let my true feeling known about anything really. But them trying to force me to be a churchgoer really ate at me. I was asked multiple times what church I attended and whenever I actually admitted to not going to church I was told every time that it was okay as long as I had a personal relationship with God. I just smiled and nodded. I was there to help my grandson and help the other kids in his den and pack so I ignored all the church stuff.
One incident about did me in though. The entire pack met inside of the church that sponsored his pack to learn about the popcorn sales process. They actually stood at the altar and pushed popcorn sales. I sat in a pew listening attentively. Happened to be wearing a ball cap. One of the the boy scout adult leader actually came up to me and told me " take that hat off and show some respect while you are in a church" I was dumbfounded. It was all I could do to not ask the guy if he ever heard the story of Jesus and the money changers. I was pissed but just nodded and removed my hat. What a bunch of hypocrite's. Use the church as a church and I assure you I would have not worn a hat, but to peddle popcorn it did not seem like much of a church at the moment.
Homosexuals are not pedophiles. It is damn ignorant to say that they are. Are gay boy scouts as likely to rape non gay scouts as a hetero scout is likely to rape a girl? Hell NO! Neither is a very likely scenario. Sex has no place in scouting, it is about teaching boys to become upstanding citizens. I could care less if a scout or a leader is gay anymore than I care of they are heterosexual, none of that matters.
My grandson was a productive scout, we participated in most events and he earned a wide assortment of badges and awards. We did camp outs hikes, outings, den and pack meetings. He lost interest after his second year and never asked to go back for a third so I let it go. He does football.
Oddly enough, I was a card carrying scout leader for those two years, and when we did not come back after football season for a third year I was not contacted one time by anyone in his pack to ask where we were. I am pretty much glad they didn't now.
