A megachurch in Louisville, Kentucky, has decided to end its relationship with the Boy Scouts of America after the organization voted to allow gay young men to become scouts. The executive pastor of the church, Tim Hester, explained that Southeast Christian Church has godly missions to fulfill and the Boy Scouts are moving in the opposite direction of their purposes. Hester says the church board had come to the decision before the Boy Scouts of America voted on the issue, implying the church was put off when the organization even considered making changes to appease gay activists.
The church will not renew its charter agreement with the Scouts, who have been allowed to use the church’s facilities. The Scouts have been asked to leave the premises as soon as they can find a new sponsor.
Is there any harm in allowing gay boys to be Scouts? Many think it isn’t a problem. After all, gay boys are harmless, or so they think. But when one considers the fallen world we live in, the dangers of allowing gay scouts are very real. It is a proven fact that many boys who identify themselves as gay have been sexually molested at some point in their lives. It is also a fact that child-on-child sexual abuse incidents have been going up in the U.S. Why is child-on-child sexual abuse a problem? Because children who are sexually abused many times abuse other children. Additionally, children exposed to porn at an early age (which is happening more often because of the Internet & parents not policing their children’s internet usage) sometimes sexually abuse other children.
Therefore, the danger that gay boys will sexually abuse other boys in the Scouts is a very real danger. If we have witnessed incidents of male-on-male sexual assault increase in the military since DADT was repealed and the soldiers are grown men, then do we really expect anything different from kids who are less mature than grown men? Maybe that’s what liberals are hoping for so the numbers of homosexuals will increase.
