Christian Bigot: If the Boy Scouts Allow Gay Leaders, Kids Will Get Molested

Greg Quinlan, president of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX), doesn’t like the proposal currently under consideration by the Boy Scouts of America that individual troops could decide whether or not to allow gay leaders and members.

Greg Quinlan

Why doesn’t he like it? Because [insert all sorts of homophobic statements here]:

Boy Scouts leaders are exactly that — leaders. Boys watch them very closely. Boys also look up to older Boy Scout members and want to imitate them and follow their examples. Boys at that stage of maturity emulate male role models. A homosexual who gently eases boys and young men into exposure of homosexuality by his own personal example promotes homosexual behavior as normal, natural and healthy. This paves the way for youth to question their own sexuality and be affirmed into homosexuality. Promoting homosexuality to youth is also a political ploy to further homosexual approval.

My own sexual molestation as a youth was a contributing factor to my homosexual behavior as I got older. I left homosexuality only when I saw over 100 of my friends die of AIDS. I regret all those years of living homosexually — time wasted when I could have been dating and experiencing a relationship with a woman, gotten married, and raised children together. But sexual molestation and homosexuality raped me of those precious years, which should have been the best years of my life.

In short: Quinlan hates himself for being gay, so he’s going to make life as difficult as possible for all other gay people. It begins by promoting this idea that being gay is anything but normal, natural, or healthy.

He also insinuates that a gay troop leader will spend time at meetings exposing kids to homosexuality, which couldn’t be further from the truth. The problem is that troop leaders are being kicked out for the “crime” of being gay, even though their volunteering has nothing to do with their sexuality.

Quinlan also believes that exposure to homosexuality somehow turns kids gay. In other words, he really believes you can catch The Gay.

In Quinlan’s letter to the BSA decision makers, he makes this awkward plea:

I, too, was one of those nice gays. But I was also one of those nice children who was molested. Please do without some corporate funding if you must, cut your budget and protect the children in your care. One case of child sexual molestation is one case too many.

Because, in his mind, if you allow gay troop leaders, scout meetings will just become a giant molest-fest.

This is the sort of bigotry that the rest of us are trying to eradicate. The Boy Scouts of America can do their part by ignoring this level of crazy.

    I was also molested by a homosexual at age 9, and I got into some very bad stuff.
    I only learned later that women were what I was actually attracted to, around age 18.
    I’m not religious, but I don’t think people with homosexuality should be scoutmasters. Its kind of strange that they even WANT to be in the woods with young boys.
    Its asking for trouble.
    When measuring molestation, people always make the mistake of saying “heterosexuals molest more girls, then gays molest boys” but WE OUTNUMBER YOU 50 TO 1!!
    When measured “per capita” by the USDOJ, homosexuals molest boys at 3 times the rate that heterosexuals molest girls!

    You were molested by a pedophile, not by a homosexual.

    “Its kind of strange that they even WANT to be in the woods with young boys.”

    Not if they enjoy scouting, which has nothing to do with their sexuality.

    Just because a homosexual molester bring you to orgasm, when you are 13, and it feels good, it doesn’t make you homosexual. He taught me that homosexuality was normal, and it turned out it wasn’t. There was an intimacy between his mouth and my genitals that I could not get away from, for many years. the lure was too great,
    Just because it feels good, doesn’t make it right.
    I’m married now, for 7 years, and sex and love with my wife seems so right, so perfect, not just some cheap thrill that grosses me out and terrifies me to this day. It sickens me to remember gay sex.

    That wasn’t homosexuality. That was child abuse. There is a difference.
