Jeff Dion: Your Gay Scoutmaster

By Greg L | 21 January 2007 | Prince William County | 13 Comments

James Young reports this evening that Democrat Jeff Dion, who is running for Occoquan Supervisor and whom is a practicing homosexual, has been acting as a Cub Scout Scoutmaster in defiance of the well known policy of the Boy Scouts of America which does not permit homosexuals to be scout leaders. This is outrageous.

If Jeff Dion had any sense of self-respect, he would never have taken such a position given his certain knowledge that the BSA would consider him excluded for the position. If he had any sense of honesty, he would not have failed to disclose what is an important material fact with regional scout leadership. One would assume that someone who apparently is an Eagle Scout himself, according to his campaign statements, would demonstrate the level of honestly, trustworthiness and personal honor called for in the scout oath and not hide a disqualifying disability for the position he now holds.

And this liar wants to represent the citizens of Occoquan on the Board of County Supervisors? Heck, he’s demonstrated he’s not qualified to be a Cub Scout leader.

I wonder if he also failed to disclose to the parents of the children entrusted to his care that he is a practicing homosexual and flagrantly disregarding the policies of the organization he has pledged to uphold. My guess is not.

UPDATE: A reader provides the link to the pack web page, where the Scoutmaster’s email is listed as jeffdionva@hotmail.com.

    I wonder if Dion uses a double sleeping bag.

    Proof that Dion is indeed the leader:

    I have no first hand knowledge of the situation, but have you considered the possibility that the actual Cubmaster — which is the technically correct term, since “Scoutmaster” is reserved for Boy Scouts — has no email address of his own, and this is the way that they want e-mails to the Cubmaster to get to him?

    I have been a Pack Committee Chair and a Troop Committee Chair. There are plenty of ways that men can get involved in Scouting — and be “leaders” — without having to pass a “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” screening test.

    I have also been involved with both Cub Scout and Boy Scout groups where no one cared about the sexual orientation of the leader. The Scouts insist on what they call “two-deep leadership”; no one ever does anything with any boy — even his own — without another adult along.

    That seems like a little bit of a stretch, given that the email is a confirmation of information already received. It’s pretty clear, at least to me, that he is the leader of the cub scouts.

    Now if it’s an instance of people looking the other way, and an insufficient vetting process, that in no way removes Jeff Dion’s responsibility to be upfront and honest. Sure, if he worked a little bit he might get away with this, but why would someone want to? When he certainly knew about the policy regarding homosexuals, why would he intentionally violate that policy? And what might that tell us about the next time when Jeff Dion can make the choice between the easy decision and the harder one that is morally correct? Would it mean he’d do what he wants, regardless of whether it’s right or not if he thinks he can get away with it?

    Coming on the heels of him leaving his marriage in order to pursue a homosexual lifestyle, this is starting to look like a rather disturbing pattern of behavior that is utterly inconsistent with a position of public trust.

    chartered by VFW Post 7916. That would be the next place — ask them if Dion filled out a leader form, if there was a question about sexual orientation, and what he said.

    Also, given the gay community’s loathing of scouting, I wonder why they are so happy with a man who supports scouting?

    Greg, I decided to check out the application forms, and wrote up a pretty detailed post about it all over at my site, which I shamelessly will link to here: What does it say on Jeff Dion’s cub scout leader form?

    I noted that if seems odd that, with all the minor service Jeff lists on his resume (my favorite being the “muffins for mom” chair), he fails to list an important leadership position of Cubmaster, even though he mentions his own involvement as a child in scouts.

    So Jeff prominently mentions he lives with his children, but fails to mention his partner of multiple years. He lists being a PTA volunteer, but not being a Cubmaster. He tells us his religion, but not his sexual orientation.

    If any of this was truly private, I would be loathe to mention it. But it’s not private, it just isn’t being made prominent in his campaign, for some reason.

    Beyond that, I am disturbed that an Eagle Scout would be willing to ignore BSA rules and take a leadership position. I realise he must strongly disagree with their view, but it IS the official BSA view, and it shows great disrespect to the organization to flout their rules.

    cvllelaw: I considered that. He does appear to be the Cubmaster, he’s listed as such on the pack committee page. Cubmaster is an official unit position, and requires a triplicate (quadruplicate?) form with a signature agreeing to abide by the BSA rules, which prohibit homosexual leadership.

    Sure, nobody asks, so if a homosexual wants to lead, and is willing to sign a form promising to enforce the BSA rules when they know they are violating the rules, nobody else is going to say anything, especially if they have no idea of a person’s sexual orientation.

    Here the question isn’t whether Jeff should be cubmaster, but whether his willingness to flout the rules of the organization is an issue for is candidacy for public office. That’s something the voters should decide, which means the voters have a right to know that Jeff Dion is a gay man living with a male partner who is also a Cubmaster.

    If he wasn’t running for office, I wouldn’t be saying ANYTHING, although since I am a former boy scout I would hate not reporting him to the organization simply because they have a right to know.

    While the argument can be made that only a small portion of homosexuals are pedephiles, the fact still remains that the BSA has a policy against gay scoutmasters. Courts have upheld the rights of the BSA to have this policy. Dion is in violation of this policy.

    Did Dion omit his homosexuality and living arrangements from his application? Why is Dion hiding his homosexuality from the voters? Is he ashamed? Does he believe it is wrong? Is the BSA aware of his orientation and is casting a blind eye?

    RE: “The Scouts insist on what they call “two-deep leadership”; no one ever does anything with any boy — even his own — without another adult along.”

    What happens if the other adult going along is also homosexual? Seems we’s have “way too-deep leadership” at that juncture.

    Cub Masterbater. Heh. Is that your flashlight, or are you just happy to see me?

    Right. Because all gay man are attracted to children and are simply out to “convert” as many heteros as possible.

    Why is Dion “hiding” his homosexuality? Well, first, he’s NOT hiding it. If you ask him, he’ll tell you. Secondly, he (and the rest of the civilized world) knows that you are going to react like the close-minded judgemental reactionary that you are….

    And if you’re going to quote the Bible at me, do me a favor and read the ENTIRE book and not just the parts that reinforce what you believe….

    Oh, and to James Young:

    I hope you’re proud. You have participated in the “Swift boating” of a decent, hard working guy, a man who (after his sister was killed) has dedicated his life to helping victims of crime….a man, James, that you GO TO CHURCH WITH.

    Judge not lest ye be judged, James.

    (I’m sure the moderator will delete my comments because they’re not closed minded right wing drivel)

    [Ed note: A subsequent verse in the John (John 8:11) after the one referred to is “Go now and leave your life of sin”, which provides the complete context for this passage. I wish those who tend to quote the Bible on this site would actually spend some time trying to understand it.]
