    Actually it may have been not reported for a bigger reason: fear of retribution in the courts by homosexual advocasy groups…..the conundrum is that for the most part they are almost totally volunteer. Should've reported abuse however.

    Well they could have avoided all this I'll betcha…. when people are complaining to them about somebody molesting their kid where they were hearing rumors and stories from other kids they probably had plenty of opportunity to look into it themselves and ditch the ones they knew they had to get rid of in order to protect the children and the organization…. so now a lot of kids who would have benefited from this organization will do without it and that is really a shame …. a lot of good things came out of it …. why the hell didn't they do the right thing ?
    It's a shame when people just want to cover up the truth rather than doing something about it when they have the chance…. shame on those people and the boards of directors over the years you could have done something and made a difference . Obviously they just really didn't care and only wanted to enjoy the status of being a big name ….. but look at them now .

    Homosexuals and feminists have accomplished another of their goals. This one was easier than bringing down the Catholic Church, though

    "After the end of his [Rex Tillerson's] term as BSA president, he remained on the organization's National Executive Board. There he played a significant role in the board's 2013 decision to rescind the long-standing ban on openly gay youth as members. According to Center for Strategic and International Studies president John Hamre, Tillerson was instrumental in the change and 'a key leader in helping the group come to a consensus'.[66][68]." ~ Wikipedia

    So unfair that the Boy Scout institution should have to pay for crimes of the perverts, or even of any local Boy Scout administrator that did not report any complaints properly. This is NOT the fault of the institution, but rather of PEOPLE. Punishing countless thousands of scouts is not the proper answer.

    I need all these chargers of sex abuse what idiot decided that it would be good to let the Boy Scouts join the Girl Scouts or the Girl Scouts join the Boy Scouts?? More choices for sex abusers ?? Given the reputation of the Boy Scouts who in their right mind would encourage the co- mingling of both groups ?? Who can answer that ? I want answers.

    …SOMEbody is gonna get a pardon. Well, maybe the big orange fella could bail them out (waiting for the plea on Fox and Friends) with some of his billions? Boy scouts? Good cause? Any billionaire? Anyone? crickets
