Brenda Watson, Eagle Scout Speaks at 2007 San Diego Scouting for All Rally
Speech given at the 8th Scouting For All Rally
San Diego, Ca.
Resigned, Eagle Scout 10/06
Good Morning Everyone........
SFA is back again! This is our 8th rally & we will continue to rally until the BSA rescinds their hateful discrimination policy, or is tossed from these premises.
We are patienty waiting for the courts to decide the outcome of this land. So you see it ain't over, til it's over.
Today my speech includes new information and facts regarding many leaders and adults affiliated with BSA.
First of all our community knows their is no significant truth or connection between pedophillia and homosexuality, but the BSA believes so. How dare! How dare they continue to point the finger at the GLBT and athiest communities! We are not harmful or bad people!
Some of the BSA leaders are destroying the credibility of their own organization. Pedophilles often become scout leaders, because they can have access to kids. But for the most of them, it's about abusing kids before puberty and the gender of the child is less important. Research has shown, that the group less likely to have sex with boys, are openly gay men! The BSA Leadership Training Manual, profiles that the average pedophille in the US, is a 34 year old heterosexual, married male with two children.
The information and facts, I'm about to reveal are startling! Over the years many BSA leaders have beem ejected due to pedophillia On the evening of, August 28, 2007, CBS News broadcasted a story. The topic was, "Brothers sue BSA; Secret documents reveal years of molestation incidents." Brothers Matt and Tom Stewart blames the BSA for their lost childhood. They were sexually abused by their assistant scout leader at the ages of 6 and 7 and this continued until their age of 18. "After 30 years , nightmares are still very real, comments the brothers." As part of the 2003 lawsuit against their scout leader, thousands of secret cases were released to their attorney.. From these cases, it shows that before1991, one leader was ejected from the BSA for molestation, every three days. Since 1991, one leader is tossed every other day and this includes people suspected of child abuse.
The BSA claims their child abuse program is the best in the country. But, in 2005 Douglas Smith was sentenced to eight years in federl prison, for trafficing child porn on the internet. By the way, this person worked in the BSA headquarters and made a six figure salary.
In today's BSA Handbook, the first chapter deals with child abuse prevention. In it, scouts and parents are told, that although the BSA law emphasizes,"Obedience," if an adult asks a scout to do something uncomfortable, that's a rule, that is OK to break..Figure that out!!!!!!!!!!!
Now! I urge any scout who has been molested to please step up and fight for justice. This is no different than the pedophillia sickness that continues in the Catholic Church.
I've done my homework folks, now you decide, "Is the BSA a safe place for your boys?"
