    Sickos! They hid the abuse just like the Catholic Church.

    A really sad thing. Early on BSA taught a lot of great things to American youth. Hunting, firearms, fishing, camping........ Not packing fudge!

    Then they got infected with, well Homos. I'm just being honest. Most likely same cabal infesting the Churches and Vatican. They are in public schools now.

    There was a local BSA camp, that had a known pervert, who actually became a Sheriff, doing that stuff. The Sheriff was never prosecuted. Even though he ruined many youngsters lives.

    We were all homophobic when pointing out gay scout master and young boys were a bad idea. Putting young girls into this rather than the girls scouts was not the best idea either. Government, courts, lawsuits are all what took the place of common sense. The scouts were sent down the Hershey Highway.

    The troop I belonged to never had that problem with queers.

    The scoutmaster and assistant were recent combat vets from the Korean war.

    The troop was handled like a rifle company.

    The Salvation Army sponsored the troop and meetings were held there in the church basement.

    My father was a scoutmaster of troop 47 in the 30's and an eagle scout.

    MY youngest brother also made eagle scout,

    it was his troop that helped sponsor him for fellowship in one of the top private high schools in the world.

    That led him to scholarships and fellowships for med school, he hates what they have become, cut off his annual donations.

    My fathers troop in 1936 started building a log cabin on scout owned property, summer camp,

    finished it 1938, just in time for the 38 hurricane to completely demolish it.

    I am glad he never lived to see the BSA devolve into the wretched organization that it has.

    About 15 years ago I went looking for that cabins' remains and found it,

    rock/cement foundation was still there, logs were all rotted.

    Gay does not equal pedophile!! Interchanging the two is disgusting, and I assume most of you know better.

    Camel923: I agree with you wholeheartedly.

    I was a Scoutmaster for 9 years. I was terrified of being alone with the younger boys and really got steamed when an adult who was supposed to be on a camp-out with us failed to show, leaving me alone.

    I faulted our council as well as the National scouting program for not assuring that would not happen. Of course, that was before cell phones.

    I now fault the National for not downsizing and planning for their exposure. But I do understand the planning part as that could be used against them as an admission of guilt.
    But being me, if I were on the board I would have settled early and admitted our errors.

    Perhaps with the bankruptcy protection they can go back to basics and begin again. But in the back of my mind I don't see the national leadership downsizing their personal futures so I guess the whole ship will sink.

    New Way Forward.

    Perhaps what is needed is for a program to rise up and create a smaller version of the Boy Scouts.

    It might outline and support a family creating their own program for just a few kids.
    The program might make available all merit badge books, training & activity schedules, adult manuals etc. so family of small group might still offer the wonderful training along with the honor and morality exposure Scouting once served.
