"It is obvious that PFLAG has a NAMBLA, North American Man Boy Love Association, problem."
Washington, D.C. Rev. Louis P. Sheldon, Chairman of Traditional Values Coalition, is appalled to learn of the immoral and illegal lifestyle of the crusader leading opposition to the Boy Scouts. On Monday, August 21 protestors in Toledo, Ohio assembled outside the Erie Shores Boy Scouts of America offices to take part in a national demonstration schedule for 36 locations around the nation. The processional was lead by John Hemstreet, President of the Toledo chapters of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) and Scouting for All; an organization dedicated to forcing the Boy Scouts to accept homosexuals.
While Hemstreet is a former Boy Scout leader and a former priest, he is also an alcoholic, and convicted child molester. According to WorldNetDaily, Hemstreet says it is still appropriate for him to be a scoutmaster. He considers his homosexual activist work to be a form of community service, giving back something positive to the community. Hamstreet admits to molesting a 10-year-old boy but not any Boy Scouts. "Is this what he believes qualifies him as a good scoutmaster?" asks Rev. Sheldon.
Concerned about what measures would be taken by PFLAG in response to a convicted child molester serving as a chapter President, Traditional Values Coalition's Executive Director, Andrea Lafferty called PFLAG's national office. Mrs. Lafferty spoke to the Communications Director and inquired as to how chapter Presidents are selected. When Mrs. Lafferty asked if background checks were conducted, the director abruptly hung up on her.
"It is obvious that PFLAG has a NAMBLA, North American Man Boy Love Association, problem. PFLAG encourages the support of children at national rallies, do they find no links between being homosexuality and pedophilia?" said Rev. Sheldon. "PFLAG must adopt a policy similar to that of Megan's Law, requiring convicted child molesters to be identified."
Rev. Sheldon believes, "PFLAG is just one of many radical homosexual organizations who are using the Boy Scouts as a way to advance their political agendas at the expense of children's safety."
