The Boy Scouts of America may be able to claim the title of largest pedophile organization in the United States, but it’s not for lack of trying on the part of the Roman Catholic Church. Allegations against the Whore of Babylon tripled between 2018-2019, and from 2019-2020 claims of sexual abuse at the hands of Roman Catholic priests quadrupled. They’ll find it hard catching up to the 90,000 claims of the BSA, but something tells me they won’t quit trying.
“Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Romans 1:31,32 (KJB)
Ironically, I was an altar boy in the Roman Catholic Church under the tutelage of gay Catholic priests, and I was also a Boy Scout for several years, in both instances having escaped without assault. But the pedophile old man piano teacher who had everyone fooled? Never saw that one coming, thankfully, those piano lessons ended before the abuse went too far. So I know a little bit of what the 111,000 combined victims feel, and let me tell you, those memories never go away. They don’t even fade over time. But I trust Jesus Christ who loved me so much He died in my place on Calvary, and because of that I can forgive. I hope that one day these victims of the Boys Scouts and the Roman Catholic Church will be able to do the same.
Report: Estimated 90,000 Former Boy Scouts Accuse Leaders of Sexual Abuse
FROM BREITBART NEWS: “We are devastated by the number of lives impacted by past abuse in scouting and moved by the bravery of those who have come forward,” the Boy Scouts said in a statement. “We are heartbroken that we cannot undo their pain.”
“The response we have seen from survivors has been gut-wrenching,” the statement said. “We are deeply sorry.”
According to the Associated Press (AP), the organization “intentionally developed an open, accessible process to reach survivors and help them take an essential step toward receiving compensation.”
“They spent millions trying to encourage people to come forward,” Andrew Van Arsdale, a lawyer with a network called Abused in Scouting, said in the AP report. “Now, the question is whether they can make good on their commitment.”
AP reported on the latest developments:
The potential size of the fund is not yet known and will be the subject of complex negotiations. The national organization is expected to contribute a substantial portion of its assets, which include financial investments and real estate. The Boy Scouts’ insurers also will be contributing, as will the Boy Scouts’ roughly 260 local councils and companies that insured them in the past.
The bankruptcy has been painful for the 110-year-old Boy Scouts, which has been a pillar of American civic life for generations. Its finances were already strained by sex abuse settlements and declining membership — now below 2 million from a peak of over 4 million in the 1970s.
Most of the pending sex abuse claims date to the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, before the Boy Scouts adopted criminal background checks, abuse prevention training for all staff and volunteers, and a rule that two or more adult leaders must be present during activities.
Although Monday was the deadline for claims against the national organization, AP reported that one attorney involved in the case said new claims could still be filed against local councils depending on state limitations laws.
“More sexual abuse claims will be filed in the Boy Scouts bankruptcy than all claims filed against the Catholic Church throughout the nation,” the Torts Claimants Committee said. READ MORE

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
