‘No Gays’ Policy Didn’t Keep Child Molesting Boy Scout Master From Targeting Texas Teen With Porn

“There were violations after violation of basic safety rules with children,” says attorney Pat Maloney, who’s representing an 18-year-old San Antonio man suing the Boy Scouts for putting a now-convicted child molester in a position to target him. “You don’t allow a scoutmaster [like accused monster James Hiatt] to be one-on-one with a child. You don’t allow a scoutmaster to go out-of-state with a child, and you certainly don’t allow a scoutmaster to show pornography to a child, all of which was going on while he was a scoutmaster here.” Thank goodness the Scouts have that “no gays allowed” policy when it comes to scoutmasters! Otherwise the Boy Scouts could, like, totally claim what they really had was a homosexual predator problem and the only reasonable fix was to The Gays.

      re: the “no gays allowed” policy

      How do they confirm this in the application process, a simple “yes” or “no”?

      Very, very sad, and completely unsurprising. Boy Scouts are a breeding ground for pedophiles and other like minded perverts. Morally straight? Yeah, right.

      Surprise and SHOCK – the BSoA are the typical homophobic group where child molestors hide under the Christian term of straight married men… hmmmm

      @jack:

      It’s a lot like DADT.

      That said, this story is not about the abuse case. The molester was charged 3 years ago, convicted, and is serving a 60 year prison term.

      This is a civil suit the man (now 18) is filing against BSA, claiming BSA knew they had a pedophile leader and did nothing about it. Having been a Boy Scout when I was younger, and understanding the background checks BSA asks its prospective leaders to submit to… I doubt this kid has anything to stand on, legally speaking. But maybe I’m wrong.

      Also, all the quotes make this guy’s lawyer seem like a real douche.

      @matt: Actually, Scouting was FOUNDED by a pedophile. Baden-Powell founded the organization so he could be surrounded by young boys, and often invited his pedo friends to attend swimming parties, where skinny-dipping often occurred.
