Scott Lively is the miscreant who blames gays for the Holocaust. He also claims that Obama is gay.

It was only a matter of time before this one-man hate group took up the cause of the Boy Scouts. On Alan Keyes’ blog, the equally batshit crazy Lively informs us first that he can read minds and then:

The very fact that the leadership organized a vote on the question
instead of simply standing firm on its existing policy, which was backed
by a large majority of scouting parents and a US Supreme Court victory
no less, told me all I needed to know. The amoral fat cats now running
this once venerable organization wanted the change to preserve their
“gay”-controlled corporate donor base but wanted the blame to fall on
others.

Then there is this bit of hysteria:

There are no doubt many hidden and very cautious pederasts already
lurking in the Boy Scout leadership who are now salivating over the
prospect of having in their care self-declared “gay” boys whom they can
approach sexually with far less fear of exposure. “Gay” boys who can
also help to recruit their peers into intergenerational “gay”
relationships.

Lively is verbose and he wanders into crazy territory that I never knew existed. In the interests of brevity and, frankly, my social schedule this evening, I’ll stop here. Nevertheless, his first point is based on Lively’s slanted assumptions. It would never dawn on Lively that the Boy Scouts are trying to honor American values with equality and fairness.

I agree with Lively that there are probably pederasts “lurking in the Boy Scout leadership.” What Lively doesn’t realize is that these are likely married men, who identify as straight and probably have children themselves.

In that regard, the safest approach is to allow openly gay adults in Scouting. It is extremely rare for an openly gay man to be a child molester. The FBI has been saying the same thing for at least a decade.
