ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Mothers of Boy Scouts should be very concerned if homosexual-rights groups get their way and the Boy Scouts of America changes its policy to admit openly homosexual individuals, especially in leadership positions (“No delay from gays on Scout decision,” Web, Thursday).

We witnessed the tragedy for so many young boys (as well as their families) when former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, a sexual predator, lured them into performing sex acts. This is not to imply that all homosexuals are sexual predators, but one cannot dismiss the possibility of sexual attraction. How many homosexual men would relish having a job that puts them in close contact with young boys while camping together in the wilderness? The temptation could prove too much. Unwanted sexual encounters in youth often result in a lifetime of anguish with serious repercussions for the victims.
