I’m curious to know if this is a recent decades thing, or if it was always there.

But they can’t help it. They were born attracted to male children. /sarc

The full article mentions 1940 as the beginning of the records.

If it was always there, I think there would have been lawsuits and prosecutions, a la the Catholic Priest cases.

Pope Benedict was right on the money about there being a societal problem. The Catholic Church was certainly not immune and many of her leaders failed her, but identifying it as a Catholic thing allowed and allows others to fly below the radar.

I learned some years after returning home from the military that some of the bigger kids in one of the troops local to my high school had raped several of the smaller boys.

I don’t know if the adults covered that up, or never found out.

Riiiight!

Just the minute the BS “leadership” declared open season on “gay Scouts,” you just knew all of those kids whose camp “counselors” would be “enlightening” their charges to the real “fun” side of disfunctional!

Probably always there but well hidden. Decades ago perverts knew to keep quiet and hidden.
I would bet a dollar to a doughnut the last 15-20 years will show a HUGE spike in the numbers. The pervs are out, loud and proud these days.

No it's always been there.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for [p]a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed [q]forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is [r]unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing [s]indecent acts and receiving in [t]their own persons the due penalty of their error.

28 And just as they did not see fit [u]to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, [v]haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Romans 1: 24-32

How sad. My Scout troop 50 years ago gave me several great adult role models.

And remember that Jerry Sandusky was married to a woman, so just banning gays from becoming Scout Masters wouldn’t have entirely solved the problem.

On the other hand (in the time since I joined) this forum has had many Catholics falsely accuse those who insist that the Catholic Church fix its problem in this area only hold the church to that standard, even though the person whom they were addressing might have also been on a thread about pedophiles in the school system a few hours before.

Inventing a persecution for not being given an exemption quite correctly irritates a lot of people on this forum.

Yes, there are a few who only berate pedophile priests, but not that many.

Bad news, then. Good Lord, why so much perversity among our men? Priests I can more easily comprehend. But most of these guys were probably married family men...

Wow, that's awful. Guess I was wrong.

Where I'm from, BSA was tightly linked to the United Way organization. United Way works its way into the upper echelons of municipal government wherever it takes hold, which used to be practically everywhere.

Maybe that explains how these attacks were kept quiet.

I worked at a Y-connected summer camp when I was a college student. The guy who ran it was a total straight shooter as far as I ever could tell. There was one maintenance guy who began to act a little flaky around the kids, and he was instantly dismissed.

I had nothing but admiration for the Camp Director, who was in my opinion a great man. Tens of thousands of kids went through that camp, and I never heard a negative comment.

I agree this has been since the gays came out wanting more than to keep govt out of their bedrooms. On camping trips (60s) we always had 2-3 dads for 15-20 boys weekends and summer camp.
