Staver: The Boy Scouts Will Now Become 'A Playground For Pedophiles'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber took issue with the recent decision by the Boy Scouts of America to lift its ban on gay Scout leaders, with Staver declaring that the organization will now become a "playground for pedophiles."

Staver called on churches to cut all ties with the Boy Scouts rather than "promote this kind of immorality" and risk subjecting young boys to sexual molestation.

"Now [the organization will] allow homosexual young boys in the Scouts and allow homosexual leaders in the Scouts, and what are you going to have?," Staver asked. "You are going to have all kinds of sexual molestation. This is a playground for pedophiles to go and have all these boys as objects of their lust. This is insane and we need to literally abandon the Scouts because the Scouts, unfortunately, have abandoned us."

"This issue of homosexuality is becoming insane," he continued, "and it is the culture battle of our time. Whether it is this Boy Scouts' abdication of its role and changing of its policies or same-sex marriage, this is a time that our Judeo-Christian values are attacked, being challenged, and this is a time for you to stand up and be true to the Scriptures and be true to our Lord."
