Many years ago, Paul Iwaniec was a scout leader of Mormon troop 224 in North Carolina. This loser was remarried to a Mormon woman, and he horribly abused his stepson at ages 11 to 14. Other scouts may have also been abused.
Iwaniec awarded merit badges "for performing sexual acts" and threatened to "kill him or his mother if he told anyone." As is often the case in these situations, the LDS mother probably was oblivious and didn't know what was going on. Her dirtbag scum of the earth husband was a priesthood holder, and attended LDS meetings, and volunteered to be a scout leader.
1,551 men claim to have been sexually abused while in boy scouts (many LDS no doubt) and are involved in various lawsuits that could bankrupt BSA or whatever they call themselves these days. They invite girls to join. The local non-LDS troop here in Colorado has a girls group, and it seems to work fine.
Lawyers claim that the Boy Scouts used to have a "pedophilia epidemic". In the case of LDS scout leaders involved in these crimes, LDS leaders often tried to keep things private without reporting to authorities if the abuser was a churchgoer who promised to repent and change his ways.
One young victim was abused for years in Texas, and the scout leader even tried to prostitute him out to other grown men who wanted to have sex with a young boy. Needless to say. . . . horrendously horrible!
