Just one of the reasons the Boy Scouts continue to bar gays and atheists from their organization is a misguided belief that this somehow keeps kids safe. So I’m interested to learn from an article [registration required — sorry] in the Dallas-Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Douglas Smith, the Scouting official who pleaded guilty today to charges of possessing and distributing child porn, was “a churchgoing, happily married man and father of three grown children.”
