The Boy Scouts Has a Troubling History
An article in the New York Times reports that approximately 8,000 Boy Scout leaders have been accused of sexually abusing children since 1944. This information was kept in what Boy Scout leaders called the “perversion files.” These files have indicated that over 12,000 children have been sexually abused during their time in the Boy Scouts.
Sexual abuse perpetrated by Boy Scout leaders is a violation of trust. This is not just something that occurred in the past — this sexual abuse is still ongoing today. In many cases, children are groomed by Boy Scout leaders over longer periods of time, and the evidence of sexual abuse may not be immediately apparent.
The Boy Scouts of America has faced hundreds of lawsuits from child sexual abuse survivors and their families. The organization, along with the perpetrators of child sexual abuse, should be held accountable for their actions.
