Posters here can't take it out on the BS leaders so they take it out on you. Basic internet feeding frenzy.

Yeah, I know.
Its becoming impossible to have a discussion here anymore.
Millions of kids have gotten tremendous value out of the scouts but whatever.

Exposing and bringing awareness to corruption or abuse within an organization doesn’t necessarily nullify the good that may be found in it.
Both truths can co exist.

From the source.

"The data demonstrated that the scouting program is safe,” she said, adding that all cases of abuse were reported to authorities and that she found no sign of a cover-up by the BSA. When it comes to the rate of sexual child abuse within the organization, she said it is less than in society as a whole."

"We care deeply about all victims of child abuse and sincerely apologize to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We believe victims, we support them, and we have paid for unlimited counseling by a provider of their choice. Nothing is more important than the safety and protection of children in Scouting and we are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to abuse innocent children,” the BSA said."

I'm saying that some problems are made out to be much worse than the numbers show.
Take it for what it is.


Sexually abusing kids is not one of those things to make light of, saying it's overblown is a gross disservice at best to our weakest & most defenseless citizens, and a window into someone's grimy, questionable soul at second best. It's one of those things where it warrants lopping off genitals and shoving them down the owner's throat if they want something to get their non-con rocks off.

Millions of a-ok kids do not negate the thousands who were hurt. How the hell did you even come to that conclusion anyway?

Don't bother..

It's not worth it..

Anyone with a conscience and a heart feels the same.


Those without will never get it..



It's wasted high blood pressure. To argue with these devil's advocates is an exercise in futility


"Bad Meathead!"

Nowhere have I said to blow it off.
I only pointed out that the organization has done great things for a whole lot of kids.

In fact according to the article in the link.

"When it comes to the rate of sexual child abuse within the organization, she said it is less than in society as a whole"

The scouts organization is actually safer for children than everyday society.

If truth be told I'm all for the death penalty for molesters.
I have no clue how anyone got that I was defending molesters.

Might be wrong, but didn't NAMBLA start scouts, or was it some other energetic pedo?

Read about it ages ago.

Mum never let us join because of pedophiles.

I think she was more into ASIO than she let on.

absolutely they have.
see this thread was about all the diddling though. i chose to point that out

for some reason you decided to say its not really an 'out of control' problem and deflect to the oh so amazing things.

not sure why.

you could start a thread on their awesomness.

cause this thread is not about that

Your source clearly states that kids are less likely to get sexually assaulted in a boy scout troop than they are in society as a whole.

Sounds more like the scouts are doing a better job of protecting kids that our own citizens.

Why have you totally ignored the stats in your own source?

Would anyone get away with a book titled "Scouting For Boys" these days?

So no comment to my question then.

Got it

Aaaand cause im not talking about society or all the great things that go on.

This thread is about the abuse.

The abuse you keep deflecting from.

The abuse you said was not a problem.

You asked to be shown.

I showed you.
