Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert envisions 17-year old gay Boy Scouts in tents sexually molesting 11-year old “new rookie” Boy Scouts. The Tea Party Congressman from Texas believes gay people are automatically pedophiles and unable to control sexual urges.
In a conversation with hate group leader Tony Perkins, Gohmert said he is “brokenhearted” by the majority decision of the 1400 members of the Boy Scouts National Council to allow openly gay Scouts to stay in or join the Boy Scouts, and wondered “what you’d call that merit badge?”
“I was just so brokenhearted over the vote with the Boy Scouts,” Gohmert told Perkins, head of the Family Research Council. “You’re going to allow a situation where a seventeen-year-old guy that’s sexually attracted to other guys gets in a little tent with an eleven-year-old new rookie Boy Scout and they spend the night together, night after night at camp? I mean, come on. I thought we were making progress. All I can figure is—I was an Eagle Scout, we share so much of the love of scouting—when you hear what happened, the people I talked to are, ‘well just think there are so many corporations that are holding up their donations and if we will just do this all of that money is going to flow to Boy Scouts.’ Are you kidding me? Is money the most important thing in life? Gosh no. You’re blessed so much more if you follow the teachings in the little old rulebook we call the Bible.”
