A Moron psychologist... at BYU... THE Moron university that has such tight control over their sheeple that they will expel you for having sideburns... opts to SHOCK PARTICIPANTS' PENISES TO PUNISH THEM FOR HOMOSEXUAL AROUSAL... does not make it official church doctrine... it simply makes the Moron leadership and the stupid sheeple who follow ignorant fuknards.

BYU did not pioneer the use of aversion therapy as a treatment for homosexuality and it ceased use of the therapy decades before the American Psychological Association stopped recommending the practice. BYU was one of many places where research in this area was done.

One of the alleged participants in this sensationalized ABC story admitted he was never part of the aversion therapy study at BYU.

OMG, you are right. That must mean my 5 friends who were sexual abused by trusted religious leaders were lying. I understand now, the BYU penis shocking was just a phase... they grew out of it... besides, everyone was doing it. Everyone, as in a few other religious fukheads.


The Moron church "advocates" a lot of crazy sh#t that is not official church doctrine for obvious tax exemption and public perception reasons.

Those who molest boy are NOT homosexuals, they are pedophiles.

I thought they were called "priests," not pedophiles.

Wes,

I thought ONE GUY said he shocked his dick to supposedly stop them homo thoughts.

How did this get to more than one guy, who else was doing this?

and when did this ever become any kind of church "doctrine"?

The LDS church didn't advocate this, Norton. The link I offered might confer a little more clarity to the study and its context in aversion therapy experiments common in that era, and carried out by many research institutions.

Yes, Jennie's link should clarify everything...

"Defending Mormonism..."

Anyway, point is, the Moron church is a very accepting organization that in no way aims to suppress the desires of its homosexual members... producing nothing but wholesome men with no repressed sexual desires that may manifest in the Moron dominated BSA.

The LDS Church doesn't dominate the Boy Scouts of America.

Boy Scout total membership is 3,770,907 of which 420,977 are sposored by the LDS which figues at 11% of the total BSA membership.

The LDS Church is the largest individual sponsor...but there are many other sponsors; churches, civic and citizen groups, PTA, private schools etc.

The LDS sponsor 7% of the Boy Scouts in Canada.

Jennie, I have no idea who you are but it's clear that whenever the words "Mormon" appear on ST, you always contribute.

Nationally, Mormons do not dominate the BSA. BUT, if you are live in California (especially Sacramento) or Utah or Arizona the Mormon Church heavily dominates.

There is NO way you can argue that the Mormon church doesn't heavily influence BSA policy. Impossible.

I didn't claim the LDS have no influence. I said they don't dominate... in answer to Wes' suggestion

The LDS population in California is less than 2%, Port. In Sacremento it's 3%. The Roman Catholic population outnumbers the LDS by more than five times in that city.

Perhaps you can educate me on how, with those small percentiles relative to the other Christian faiths who charter Boy Scout troops...not to mention units sponsored by civiuc and school groups...how the LDS have come to dominate the BSA in the Sacremento area.

usually with aggressively suppressed homosexual desires/curiosities, otherwise the victimization of little girls by trusted religious officials would be equally prevalent.


Unfortunately, research does not bear you out. When actual pedophiles have been tested, they are not aroused by males....or females. They are aroused by CHILDREN.

And virtually all of them live a heterosexual lifestyle.

So you are in the group that is for going after the people who have nothing to do with the problem.

Next thing you know we'll let gays in the military!!! Oh wait...

On a serious note, the problem isn't gay scouts, but gay scout leaders. It's a recipe for abuse and pedophilia.

I don't trust most straight men with my kid on a camping trip. You want me to send him camping with a gay scout leader? Call me a homophobe, or whatever. It's common f*#king sense.

Gay scoutmasters are not the problem either. Criminally minded predators are the problem.

Everyone has their sexual preferences. Does not make everyone a criminal. Except in some religious states.

The main thing that anyone who takes care of other peoples children should be careful about is avoiding being alone with a child if it can be helped. This protects The adults and the children. Has nothing to do with intentions it has to do with avoiding any appearance of any possible impropriety. It is smart policy even if it does cause some sadly necessary inconveniences.

No, not all of them. But that's why they have the rules. To eliminate the possibility.

"No, not all of them. But that's why they have the rules. To eliminate the possibility."

True...

To become an Eagle Scout, you must have at least 20 nights of camping. Kids are harder to watch on campouts, lots of things can happen...they're in their tents, or off on their own. That's why it's more complicated to have gay scouts or leaders. I think the BSA's current policy is similar to the same reason girl scouts don't join the boys on these campouts.

I totally agree. I have a few friends that are gay. Not even remotely worried about them being around my son. Then there are others. I have seen and met predators at the playgrounds and near the schools. We even had called the cops on one that was trying to interact with my niece and found out he had previous convictions, wasn't suppose to be even near a park, etc. The guy was seventeen years old with several convictions of child abuse with girls below the age of five. (Think on that.)

Long story short... You feel something is off with a person female or male or the babysitter isn't feeling like a solid choice to watch your kid... Trust those instincts. Missing a date/concert isn't a bad thing compared to living with the after effects of abuse, or the worst the death of your child.

I follow those instincts with teachers, doctors, scout masters, priest, relatives, etc. I have a story about that too. I hated my math teacher, demanded a transfer. Felt like he was greasy... Two years later, they caught him demanding sex for grades from a few 14 year old female students. He never did that to me but... I remember feeling wrong. (Strange that I was so right.)

As a former Scout myself, and father of a Life Scout, the concern I have is of gay Scoutmasters being Boy-Buggerers! No parent worth his or her salt will willingly send a child off to camp to be molested. Most youngsters haven't yet a clue about their own sexual orientations at the age in which Scouting begins. So...no...I will not vote for "allowing gays to be in scouts." It really isn't about the boys, is it?

WOW... just.. really?

Was it this hard with slavery too?

In a way it's morbidly fascinating to see this historical process live.

You know the process whereby society goes from accepting evil as a necessity or even a virtue..

Too where even the racist KKK wouldn't do it. And it becomes a Felony


Same sh#t with Homosexuality.

Same day different century.. nothing new to see here.
