Men sue Mormon Church, Boy Scouts in abuse case

January 22, 2007

In this lawsuit, two brothers, now in their thirties, are alleging they were sexually abused by the same man who served as a Scout leader and church teacher in the 1980s. The brothers, identified only by initials, are asking for $6.5 million in the lawsuit, saying they have suffered "severe debilitating physical, mental and emotional injury."

While I see it as too early to form an opinion as to the veracity of their complaint, I do find it very odd that the Boy Scouts especially, are being sued now for not doing something about a homosexual leader that hasn't been involved with any scouts for the past 20 years, as he has spent most of that time in jail, yet the Boy Scouts are under continual fire for not allowing Homosexual men to be Scout Leaders today.

Boy Scouts Under Fire; Ban on Gays Is at Issue

It seems that anything that teaches classic patriotism and pro-America attitudes has to be destroyed, any way the left can do it.

I was interested in the story about the LDS church being sued. Do you have a link to it? The other link is just on the heat about the BSA no-gays policy.
