Court Ruling: Boy Scouts ignored sex abuse

It’s not just the Pope! Though oddly enough this scandal involves the Mormons…

Today’s court ruling found the Boy Scouts of America were negligent to the tune of 1.4 million dollars, thanks in part to secret “perv files” used as evidence in the trial (ironically, the Scouts kept these files for the purpose of avoiding molestation).

(from the Associated Press) “Lawyers for Kerry Lewis, the victim who filed the lawsuit, argued the Boy Scouts organization was reckless for allowing former assistant Scoutmaster Timur Dykes to continue to associate with the victim’s Scout troop after Dykes admitted to a bishop for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints early in 1983 that he had molested 17 Boy Scouts.” Read more
