Boy Scout Image Tweeted By Matt Barber Links Gays With Pedophiles

A controversial Christian radio host summed up his stance on the Boy Scouts of America's controversial anti-gay policy with a single image.

The Liberty Council's Matt Barber tweeted the following illustration, suggesting that pedophiles might end up as scout leaders if the BSA opts to lift a long-standing ban on gay participants:

Of course, Barber's anti-gay declarations aren't anything new. The radio host has previously suggested that polygamy and incest are "inevitable" if marriage equality is achieved nationwide.

Earlier this year, he linked same-sex marriage to the flood referenced in the biblical narrative of Noah's Ark, noting, "In the days of Noah, they were entering into having wedding ceremonies for homosexuals and leading up to the Great Flood."
