Boy Scout Leader Charged with Child Porn Was Defender of Anti-Gay Policy, ŒYouth Protector¹


Boy Scouts of America¹s National Director of Programs Douglas Smith will appear in a Dallas courtroom tomorrow to face charges of possessing child pornography, according to reports by NBC News.

At one point, Smith served as Chairman of the Scout¹s Youth Protection Task Force, according to a web site operated by the Western Alaska Council of the Boy Scouts of America, RAWSTORYQ has discovered.

In addition, Smith was one of 42 recipients of a Distinguished Service Award, presented to "Arrowmen who have rendered distinguished and outstanding service to the Order on a sectional, area, regional, or national basis. It is given primarily for dedicated service to the Order and scouting over a period of years.²

The Boy Scouts have fueled controversy by keeping gays from its membership and leadership ranks.

In a bio published along with his award description, Smith was described as a resident of Texas who had achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, scouting¹s highest honor. Smith was also recognized for "his visionary support [which] has allowed our Order to move to new level." -- Michael Rogers, RAWSTORYQ Editor, with research by Scott Hutcheson
