The article by Woody Zimmerman is one of the most hateful, homophobic, ill-informed diatribes that I have read in a long time.  I am shocked that you printed it.  First of all, he needs to learn the facts.  Most pedophiles, such as the scoutmaster he describes, are heterosexual men, married to women.  Read the scientific literature and you will see that yourself.  Gay and lesbian individuals want to date and or marry an age appropriate individual who wants the same thing from a relationship. They are not out to recruit anyone.  Please write a retraction statement and never allow an article such as that again.  It hurt innocent people and encourages bullying of youth, whom Mr. Zimmerman purports to want to defend.
