In “honor” of the Boy Scouts of America wimping out on the decision of whether or not to allow gay adults to work as scoutmasters and in other volunteer positions (no, the weaselly non-decision to allow local units to decide if they want to continue to discriminate on a whim is not good enough), and in response to the professional homophobes attempting to muster hysteria about the Boy Scouts becoming a den of pedophiles if gay men are allowed to serve (the BSA is a den of pedophiles and always has been, without any involvement by openly gay adults), we hereby present this extra-long rundown of perverts and alleged perverts to emerge from the ranks of the BSA… recently, that is. (Of course, we’ve been following the BSA’s perv epidemic for some time… And just wait until we start reviewing the names we’re only now finding in the BSA’s own Perversion Files.) (more…)

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (CN) — The Boy Scouts of America must cough up records of sexual abuse claims made against adults in the organization, a Texas judge ruled.
Lawyers believe the so-called perversion records will help them prove that the Scouts are liable for the alleged abuse committed by troop leader James Hiatt. A Bexar County jury convicted Hiatt of indecency with a child and aggravated sexual assault of a child in 2008.
In a 2011 petition, an 18-year-old former scout, using the pseudonym John Adams, claimed that Hiatt sexually abused him during his time with Troop 41 in 2004 and 2005.
The San Antonio resident sued the Irving, Texas-based organization and the Alamo Area Council for negligence. (more…)
