    This is an exceptionally difficult area, since pedophilia is widespread, associated with human trafficking, and one may even say common.. As in the priesthood, there have been more than a few incidents of child abuse in the Boy Scouts...and like it or not, men are over 90% of the perpetrators. When the minor children are same gender, that means gay pedophiles. Gay pedophiles are the monster that straight male children fear, and they are ultimately the source of a lot of straight male homophobia. So, come up with a more thorough system of identifying and excluding such reptilian people, and become more empathic to the Boy Scouts' dilemna. The Catholic church has not had a very good history by being quietly tolerant of certain behaviors. There is, as with all social behaviors, a balance between civil liberty and harm to members of the community. Children are vulnerable, and to be protected. My suggestion is that the male gay community become more proactive with solutions and monitoring proposals for gay male pedophiles. Sexual abusers should not be welcome anywhere, and that is the goal of the Boy Scouts, in an attempt to address their past failures. Ironically, pedophiles are very interested in volunteering to tend to our children. They are statistically prolific and recidivist. At least understand the legitimate fear, and try to find better solutions which respect both the civil liberties of healthy gay persons and the rights of both straight and gay children to be respected and not violated during their development. In other words, practice empathy and compassion for everyone, except the pedophile, Compassion for that person means treatment or incarceration. Decent people regardless of sexual orientation should not be excluded from helping children. So, how do we solve this? Kids are still being molested. Why is that?
