Morristown — The Morris County Prosecutor´s Office has filed more charges against a former Boy Scout leader, accusing him now of sexually abusing members of his troop more than a decade ago. Stephen Corcoran, 45, of Morris Plains is accused of sexually assaulting two members of Parsippany-based Boy Scout Troop 173 between 1997 and 1999 on multiple occasions, Acting Morris County Prosecutor Fred Knapp said in a news release Friday. On Sept. 18, the prosecutor´s office began investigating allegations that Corcoran, who was an assistant Scout leader and an adviser to the Eagle Scouts between
Comments: Meanwhile, the gestapo pressure groups pull donations because the Boy Scouts ban homosexuals from leadership positions.
I don´t want sexually active single scout leaders in charge of young kids. That goes for not having young hetero males leading girl scout troops or lesbians running the troop.
There are lots of things to volunteer for. Coaching has become a similar area and many coaches are extremely careful to never be alone with players, especially ones of the opposite sex or similar persuasion.
#4 has got it right. My first thought was the socialists are using their successful tactics against the Catholic Church against their other strong nemisis the Boy Scouts. They care nothing about the children. They only want to tear down those remaining institutions that still fight them.
Same sex pedophilia and pederasty are NOT the same thing as homosexuality and there is no proven correlation between being homosexual and having an attraction to children. Because there are men who molest little girls, does that mean all heterosexual men are pedophiles too??? Of course not. It just proves that making sweeping judgments usually leads to wrong conclusions.
I can´t help but think gay activists will use this news to attach the BSA because of their policy against admitting homosexuals. So don´t be surprised if this gets a lot of media coverage. Too bad someone doesn´t do some tough investigative reporting of pedophilia among politicians of the progressive persuasion. That´s likely where the real scandal lies.
The boys involved were 16 and older - post-pubescent - it´s not pedophilia. Like those priests, this guy may be a predatory homosexual who likes them young...and they may like them older, too. I understand 16 year olds are capable of consensual sex under New Jersey law, outside of the statutory rape law. And who´s to say this is anything but a shot at BSA and its pocketbook by active "gay pride" homosexuals? This bears watching...like those pesky nooses and "carvings" inflicted by racists everywhere.
In the last couple of weeks, there have been several articles in the New York Post about sexual abuse of a 12 year old girl by a rabbi in an ultra-orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn. And, in another incident:
The chancellor of Yeshiva University reportedly has acknowledged that two rabbis assigned to its all-boys high school were allowed to leave quietly after students accused them of sexual abuse. NY Post, December 14, 2012.
This information is beginning to sound like a replay of what happened to the Catholic Church. I was a boy scout for a number of years and never heard or saw such behavior. People looking for deep pockets to sue. The bottom feeding attorneys are frothing at the mouth to start suing the boy scouts. The liberals hate the boy scouts because they believe in God and do not believe in homosexuality in their ranks.
I am not sure what pretzel logic #12 is trying to apply here, but it sounds like the assertion is that homosexuals attacking same sex kids is not homosexual behavior. All I can say is - Wow!
Try this fact on for size - homosexuals constitute about 1.5% of the population but commit about 20-40% of child molestations, making them 20 times as likely, proportionally, to molest children as heterosexuals.
Despite the reprieve granted by President Obama, most of the 800,000 people in New Jersey who have been told their health policies can´t be renewed next year still don´t know whether they´ll get to keep their plans when it comes time to renew them in 2014. Insurance Commissioner Kenneth Kobylowski told a state Senate Commerce Committee hearing Thursday that not a single company has committed to renewing the old plans yet. He was invited to testify by state Sen. Nia Gill, the chairwoman of the committee and an Essex Democrat, about his decision last week to let insurance companies decide
Investigators probing the racist spray painting last month of the small-town Massachusetts home of an eighth-grade football player are now focusing on the 13-year-old boy´s mother. Andrea Brazier, mother of football player Isaac Phillips, is now being investigated as the sole suspect in a crime that shocked the town and nation when she blamed her son´s teammates for spray painting racist graffiti all over the family´s home. ‘Knights don’t need n*****s´ was found spray painted on the side of their Lunenburg home. The school cancelled the remainder of the Blue Knights´ season in response.
Robert Menendez beamed as a West New York School elementary school was named after him this afternoon. "I can think of no better tribute than having an elementary school named in my honor," the U.S. senator said at a ceremony at the 55th Street school, which previously was known as School 3. "It´s where it all began for me and I know my mother, who has passed away, would have been proud." (Snip) When he asked a crowd of sixth-graders sitting in the back of the auditorium what they dreamed of becoming some day, they shouted out career aspirations:
Despite the bumper-to-bumper decorations, Lynda Farley says she can see perfectly fine out of her minivan. And she was willing to drive more than 100 hours and 5,000 miles to prove it. The 62-year-old Kentucky woman made the nearly 12-hour, 800-mile drive from Edmonton, Ky., to Warren County "four or five times" in recent months to fight the $56 obstructed-view traffic ticket. Today, a New Jersey Superior Court judge in Belvidere tossed the ticket after ruling Farley´s view through the windshield wasn´t hindered by the political signs and figurines that cover her van.
Sydney — A brazen bird snatched a video camera that was recording crocodiles in northwest Australia and captured fascinating footage of its 70-mile journey across the country’s remote landscape. Wildlife rangers in Western Australia’s Kimberly region released video on Monday that reveals the sea eagle’s caper. The bird’s flapping wings can be seen as it grabs the device and takes off, and the eagle later poses for a selfie, poking its face into the camera lens. Rangers set up the motion-sensor camera along the Margaret River in May, hoping to record images of crocodiles. The camera, which is about
As toll increases go, the one that starts today is pretty moderate, at least for most of us: an extra 75 cents on your E-ZPass bill to drive a car across the George Washington Bridge. But truckers are being asked to dig a lot deeper — deep enough, they say, to cut into or even eliminate their profits. And some say they are now at a crossroads in terms of their willingness to take runs into and through the New York Metropolitan area. It will now cost those who pay cash to cross in the biggest rigs more than $100, and
A black Mercedes slows to a halt and the driver hurries to open the door for his celebrated passenger. The tip of a walking stick appears first, then, as it finds the pavement, lean fingers decorated with jewelled rings can be seen gripping its handle. After a few moments the stick is followed by its owner – a matriarchal old lady wrapped against the winter chill in a thick blue cardigan. (Snip) But don’t be fooled by her congenial smile and, above all, don’t get too close ... she is also Bulgaria’s grande dame of pickpocketing and proud of her
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
