"Be Prepared" For More Family Values

I swear - sometimes I think people are just making this stuff up. I may have figured out a way to decipher what's really going on with the (so-called) religious right...just listen to what they accuse other people of. Voila! Whatever it is that they are up on their high horse about, that's very likely what they are either currently doing (or being) or have done, and now want to make sure nobody else does it.

The latest? Well, remember the big to-do over the Boy Scouts wanting to exclude kids who are gay, atheist or even agnostic? Didn't coincide with their Christian moral standards? Well, apparently one of these paragons of righteousness, the national director of programs for the Boy Scouts of America, has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. I guess it's not so bad to be gay, atheist or agnostic if it keeps you away from this pervert. But, of course,
“We’re shocked and dismayed to learn of this,” said Gregg Shields, national spokesman for the Boy Scouts, based in the Dallas suburb of Irving.

The Scouts have been under fire in recent years for refusing to allow gays, atheists or agnostics into the organization.

“That’s totally irrelevant to this,” Shields said.

Irrelevant? I think it is extremely relevant. In fact, I think it is directly connected. Unless you think agnosticism is sinful and child pornography is OK.

And the list goes on and on...
