    Boy Scout denied Eagle award after coming out | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

    Love how the main stream media lies about WHY he won't be given the badge. Says right there in the article he disagreed with their belief in god which is part of being a scout. Tough shit get over it and stop trying to make a scene because you think you are being discriminated against because of your preference for guys.

    He broke the rules by not abiding by the boy scout creed. He forfeited anything from the BS

    Exactly.

    WTF happened to the Boy Scouts. When I was a scout there was none of this shit. The actual scout doesn't care or see why thiese things go on. It is the adults who create all of the problems. A young scout don't care if the kid next to him is gay, probably don't even know he's gay. The gay kid probably don't know he's gay yet.

    The scouts taught alot of good life lessons. When it came time for my son to join the scouts and he showed no intrest, I didn't even bother to pursue it.

    The Scouts' national spokesman, Deron Smith, said late Thursday that Ryan contributed to his situation by disagreeing with the BSA's religious principles.
    "Recently, a Scout proactively notified his unit leadership and Eagle Scout Counselor that he does not agree to Scouting's principle of "Duty to God" and does not meet Scouting's membership standard on sexual orientation," Smith wrote in a statement to Yahoo News. "While the BSA did not proactively ask for this information, based on his statements and after discussion with his family he is being informed that he is no longer eligible for membership in Scouting."
    Smith said belief in God is the foundation of scouting's strong, continuing commitment to encouraging moral, ethical and spiritual growth. It is the position of the Boy Scouts of America that no one can reach their full potential without belief in a higher power.
