Richard Davis makes the all-too-uncommon obvious point:
If you can’t trust a gay priest with your children, why would you trust a gay scoutmaster, or for that matter any male homosexual in a position of intimate authority over your child?
The short answer is that the left demands that you do, and that’s that. Sure there will be victims, but that’s a small price to pay to achieve complete multicultural equality. If adult homosexuals want to go camping with your boys, they should have the same right to do that as does anyone else.
And so while the Catholic Church gets sued because it entrusted young boys to homosexual males, the Boy Scouts get sued because they won’t. Both organizations have taken a beating in the media -- the church deservedly so -- but only the Boys Scouts are being publicly ostracized. Their funding sources are being targeted, young Scouts are routinely subjected to verbal abuse from picketers, and they are hounded like criminals from public facilities for being both politically incorrect and morally unfit in the eyes of the left.
If you're on the Left, how do you stand to look at yourself in the mirror every day? Maybe that's why you guys are so surly all the time.
