A couple weeks ago I wrote about a Boy Scout leader who was going to be banned from Boy Scouts of America for being an openly gay Scout Leader. The Methodist church who backed him up as a gay leader for their boys is now having their entire charter revoked.
SEATTLE (AP) — The Boy Scouts of America has revoked the charter of a Seattle church because it allowed a gay adult to continue leading a troop.
A Boy Scouts of America attorney told Rainier Beach United Methodist Church last week that it could no longer hosts troops under the Boy Scouts name.
The church has stood by Geoff McGrath. His membership in the Scouts was revoked last month after Boy Scouts of America officials learned of his sexual orientation. The group does not allow openly gay adults to serve as leaders.
The Rev. Monica Corsaro said in a statement that her church is inclusive of all people, and has obtained legal counsel to evaluate its options.
McGrath said Monday he will continue to participate in the church’s youth program even if it can’t use the Boy Scouts name.
‘NO GAY LEADERS’ is a known guideline for the Boy Scouts of America. This church leader and fmr Scout leader do not have the boys best interest in mind. It is obvious their goal is to take down the BSA and restructure it to fit their belief systems. This kind of move always perplexes me when a teeny minority try to infiltrate organizations and destroy them rather than just using all that time and energy to build something for themselves that reflect their values.
