Your comments are absolutely correct regarding our privacy and right to our own
judgements on modesty. The child you referred to who paid classmates to accuse
a sub. teacher was here in Chicago, and she offered .50 cents! That teacher w
ill never work in teaching without having to be watched, as this accusation, th
ough false entirely, will not go away.
Nor, by the way, does such an accusation in Scouting. There is one adult in ano
ther council who was accused absolute falsely, but although BSA allows him to b
e registered, no one will let him work with kids.
This is truly a terrible time for our kids --- Chicago is under the control of k
ids with guns and drugs -- adults hide and blame the children's past histories,
their parents, whatever, but never, never take a stand.
Hope some of our friends in Scouting watched the Stand miniseries --- it has a r
eally relevant point -- if we do not take our country back, we can only go down
