Pat Robertson Wonders: Would Allowing Gays in the Boy Scouts Lead to ‘Predators’ and ‘Pedophiles Who Would Come in as Scoutmasters’?

posted by Donna Calvin

Calvin’s Commentary: The Huffington Post makes it’s position very clear on what they think of Pat Robertson, calling him contentious (see article below).  I think Robertson is right and I agree with him and I am firmly convinced that 99.9999% of the people who have ever been involved with Scouting do too! Nothing is contentious in the video below!  Think of this scripture: [Luke 17:2]  It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.  ▬ Donna Calvin - Watchwoman on the Wall ▬ Thursday, February 7, 2013

NOTE THE SOURCE OF THE TEXT BELOW WAS WRITTEN BY THE HUFFINGTON POST – AN EXTREMIST ANTI-CHRISTIAN, ANTI-CONSERVATIVE WEB SITE AND THE GROUP’S AD AT THE END OF ROBERTSON’S VIDEO IS JUST AS ANTI-GOD AND BIGOTED AS THE HUFFINGTON POST.

There’s no doubt that religious broadcaster Pat Robertson has a history of making eyebrow-raising comments. From announcing his belief that atheists are “miserable grinches” to sharing his concerns over adopting foreign children, he’s spawned no shortage of controversy. This week, on his show, “The 700 Club,” Robertson, again, tackled a highly-contentious issue, making statements about gays and the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) that instantly led to intense head-scratching – and furor.

As TheBlaze reported earlier this week, the BSA is currently embroiled in national controversy surrounding the group’s controversial ban on gay members and leaders. Before it was announced that the organization is planning to delay its decision on whether to overturn the ban, Robertson weighed in, noting that the BSA has a profound history of helping young men in America.

While he encouraged the organization to make the decision it deems most appropriate, some of his words led to angst — particularly a question he asked about “predators” and “pedophiles.”

“The question is, are there predators as boy scouts, pedophiles who would come in as scoutmasters?,” Robertson asked. “And if they are, then of course parents wouldn’t want their sons being involved in the Boy Scouts, or their daughters in the Girl Scouts.”

Watch Robertson make these contentious statements: 

What do you think about the faith leader’s latest commentary? Let us know, below.
