Demand Congress Revoke Boy Scouts’ Congressional Charter

Target: U.S. Congress

Goal: Revoke the Congressional Charter given to the Boy Scouts of America

With the recent release of the so-called “Perversion Files,” the Boy Scouts of America have proven that they are not an organization that represents positive morals. Unfortunately, the organization was given a Congressional Charter; which is a mostly symbolic and honorary gesture given by Congress to organizations that were thought to uphold true American values. It seems that the intricate web of deceit and suppression of information the Boy Scouts have employed over the years in order to hide the fact that there were pedophiles in their ranks will make it difficult to prosecute individuals. A revocation of Congressional Charter seems to be at least a step in the right direction.

This revocation of the Boy Scouts’ Charter will not reverse the damage, but it will make it clear that the U.S. Government does not support their actions. It is time that the Boy Scouts of America are told by Congress and the society that trusted them that they have failed in a major way. They have betrayed the trust of a nation and destroyed the lives of countless people. The very least that can be done on a national level is to withdraw official support of such abominable actions.


Dear U.S. Congress,

A Congressional Charter is one of the highest honors an American organization can be given. The organizations that carry this proud title should do everything they can to live by the image they portray. Taking an official stance of support in hiding pedophiles, as the Boy Scouts of America have done, is not behavior deserving of a Congressional Charter to say the least. The Boy Scouts have done more than enough to deserve the revocation of this honor.

Sexual exploitation of children and the subsequent attempt to cover it up is against everything a Congressional Charter stands for. It is time for Congress to put some stock in this honor and take it away from this organization. If a Congressional Charter is to have any meaning at all, this is the only reasonable option.

    To start out with i want to state that all the comments below are factual truths, not allegations about my father adoptive Frank Tinker.
    In 1965 in Springhill LA the Boy Scouts of America bought together a confidential file {pdf 1119 Kelly and Clark Perversion files}on Frank
    Tinker suggesting that he had had homosexual relations with a boy on a camping trip, this information was furnished to the boy scouts by Mr. Tinker;s pastor. At this point Mr, Tinker was terminated from his position as scoutmaster, he resigned his job in Springhill LA and moved to Hurtsboro, AL then in Mobile ,Ala.
    When photographs of naked boys in their early teens were found in Frank Tinker’s possession, which occurred less than a year after i had been adopted, i suffered both mental and physical pain for a number of years.
    I had hoped that in 1972, when i left home, at the age of 16 years, things would improve, but i ended up living on the streets,working jobs underage, hiding from countless pursuits by family and police, who intended to return me to a physically abusive mother and a father who wanted to molest me
