Yet more proof that the BSA ban on gay leaders does nothing to protect scouts. In reality, true predators hide behind a camouflage of apparent "normality". In fact, most of the BSA abusers throughout history have been married men.

British Journal of Psychiatry, 2001 -- men with "no evidence of homosexuality" were at roughly 50% GREATER risk for becoming child abusers than men "who were homosexually inclined".



Child Advocacy Center -- 75% of all male child molesters are "married or have consenting sexual relationships (with women)" and that "only about 4 percent of same-sex abuse involves homosexual perpetrators".

Archives of Sexual Behavior, 1978 -- "sexual orientation was not related to the sex of the victim targeted" and that "men who molested boys often had adult relationships with women".



AN Groth, former director of the Sex Offender Program at the Connecticut Department of Corrections, has said: "my studies have indicated that homosexual males pose LESS risk of sexual harm to children (both male and female)--from both an absolute and a percentage incidence rate--than heterosexual males."
