Rampant child molestation? Amazing that all of the boys and girls in my family have come through Scouting without being sexually abused. I'm not trying to minimize the horror of child sexual abuse, but let's not conflate the issue with Hooters sending volunteers to help with a Cub Scout day camp.

Please just stop, HFB. It's clear that you know very little about the BSA and its Youth Protection Training nor any of the other safeguards put in place to protect youth through our Guide to Safe Scouting, which includes criminal background checks for registered, uniformed leaders. Tell me, has your neighborhood soccer coach had a criminal background check?

I make no comment on Hooters.

Rampant molestation? Not in anything like recent history. In modern times all volunteers are thoroughly vetted. In fact, BSA Youth Protection policies are considered a model for ALL youth serving organizations. Again, I'll say kids are in far more danger of that on sports teams. But, since there is no national organization to go after there, you won't hear about that.

Homophobia? Yeah-huge news there. Went to the supreme court, and didn't allow homosexual leaders for decades. Now they do. Now the conservatives don't like them because they allow homosexuals, and the liberals don't like them because they didn't USED to allow homosexuals. Gotta love people.

Are you aware that pot is legal in Colorado? Because this post says you don't:

But just because it is legal doesn't mean the parents should be okay with them being a promotional partner in a fundraiser, which was his point.

This caught my eye. Are you really saying that volunteers at a day camp are "helping raise other people's children"?

Sure. Didn't everyone?

Never engaged in anything more than looking and touching. Natural curiosity.

Obviously we didn't know what or why at that age.

There is a common thread here...

Times have changed. Boys are no longer PC if they are not wooses. But guess what, Mommy? Normal boys like girls, boobies, the whole bit. If I look back over 60 years ago, I got a kick out of the developed young girl wearing a real bra who sat in front of me in sixth grade. Still recall her name!

Probably down to fourth grade these days.

Default bigger house

[quote=MikeBear;44642499]That's like that old joke where some gamblers want to give a large amount of (gambling) money to the CHURCH, and people don't understand why the pastor didn't turn it down because it was "evil money":


Pastor: "The Devil has had use of this money LONG enough!" "It's time to see what the LORD can do with it!"

The pastor can get a new car.
