What do the Boy Scouts and the Catholic Church have in common? - A story of bigotry, rape, and God

I can name three things they both have in common. Trust me you'll like this.

First of all, they don't like atheists. According to the official Boy Scouts web page:

In the Scout Oath, a Scout promises to do his “duty to God,” and in the Scout Law he promises to be “reverent.”

The Boy Scout Handbook (11th ed.) explains a Scouts’ “duty to God” as “Your family and religious leaders teach you about God and the ways you can serve. You do your duty to God by following the wisdom of those teachings every day and by respecting and defending the rights of others to practice their own beliefs.”

The Handbook explains “reverent” as “A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others.”

All levels of advancement in the Scouting program have requirements recognizing “duty to God”

Therefore, atheists are not welcomed in the Boy Scouts. The Catholic church doesn't like them either. Us, actually.

Second: They don't like homosexuals

The Boy Scouts of America has always reflected the expectations that Scouting families have had for the organization.

We do not believe that homosexuals provide a role model consistent with these expectations.

Accordingly, we do not allow for the registration of avowed homosexuals as members or as leaders of the BSA.

Therefore, they don't accept homosexuals among them. The catholic church, and most of the other christian churches, along with the muslisms, are also intolerant towards gays.

And third and final, the Boy Scouts also like to rape children and cover the abuse cases. Just like the catholic church!

The Boy Scouts of America has long kept an extensive archive of secret documents that chronicle the sexual abuse of young boys by Scout leaders over the years. The "perversion files," a nickname the Boy Scouts are said to have used for the documents, have rarely been seen by the public, but that could all change in the coming weeks in an Oregon courtroom.

This sounds exactly like what has been going on in the catholic church. A priest rapes kids, this superiors know, but they only transfer him. Even the Pope, the goddamn Pope knew about this and did nothing about it:

Some years before, as head of the Vatican body investigating abuse by priests, he argued that accused clergymen should not be handed over to secular authorities. Rather, he wrote confidentially to bishops around the world in 2001, they should first be investigated under utmost secrecy within the church — thereby avoiding public hysteria and second-guessing by the media.

So much for "thou shall not bear false testimony", huh? Yet the Pope feel very comfortable talking against atheists and gays. Such hypocrisy is incredible.

After the release of such news about the Boy Scouts, I'm kind of glad that they don't accept atheists. No atheist will be earning these four Scout achievements:

  1. Ya nada sorprende sobre la iglesia católica, pero siempre se puede leer su hipocresía cuando hay que matar el tiempo. En verdad no se mucho sobre los Boy Scouts, pero se puede ver su lazo tan fuerte con los católicos, sobretodo en su doble cara "no tenemos nada contra ellos, pero no los aceptamos"
