BOY SCOUTS: Gay doesn’t mean pedophile

Re: “Group’s policy on gays is the correct one” (letter, 7-22).

How could you allow that letter equating gay with being a pedophile? Would you put one in saying blacks are lazy, Jews are greedy and the Irish are drunks?

Pedophiles violate children, and most are straight men. Jerry Sandusky was a married pedophile. Do we now not allow married men to coach football?

I don’t expect you to correct this terrible stereotyping of gays since we all know editors are just grumpy, cigar-chomping, fat, old men.
