Guess What The Anti-Gay Scout Leader Was Arrested For?
Why, it was for doing little boys! Eugene A. Evans, leader of the Berkeley Sea Scouts for 35 years, was arrested last Tuesday after four little boys told investigators they had played tummysticks with him. Evans, who once sued the city of Berkeley for being nice to gay people, faces 19 counts of kiddie-fucking. But that doesn't mean he's gay! Or a pervert! He totally likes the ladiesssss, and stuff.
Clearly this would never have happened to Evans if he hadn't had a history of homophobia:
Mr. Evans sued the city in his role as a leader of the Sea Scouts, an affiliate program of the Boy Scouts. The city, after providing free berthing for a Sea Scouts boat for 60 years, said in 1998 that a Boy Scout policy barring gay scouts and atheists violated Berkeley's rules against discrimination. The city said the Scouts would have to leave the berth or pay $500 a month rent.
Mr. Evans sued for discrimination and for violating the Scouts' First Amendment rights. The California Supreme Court ruled in favor of Berkeley.
New law: If you enter a lawsuit against teh gayz, you've done some nasty, nasty shit in your life:
The charges [against Evans] include oral copulation with a minor, engaging in substantial sexual acts with a minor, penetration with a foreign object, and showing or distributing lewd material to a minor.
Evans is accused of having sexual relations with boys aboard the SSS Farallon, the 85-foot ship used for the Sea Scouts program. Investigators recovered pornography from the boat and from his Kensington home, Brown and police said.
Still no word on whether Evans will fly aboard the Paultard Blimp.
