A gay Boy Scout pushes for change, putting his Eagle Scout ranking at risk

There are 3 comments on the www.washingtonpost.com story from Apr 12, 2013, titled A gay Boy Scout pushes for change, putting his Eagle Scout ranking at risk. In it, www.washingtonpost.com reports that:

With the wave of a sign at a busy Bethesda intersection Thursday, Pascal Tessier joined about a dozen classmates in a demonstration against an organization he says he loves but knows doesn't fully accept him and could, at any moment, throw him out.

Tessier, a junior at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, is a poet, an electric guitar player and an ice cream lover. He is also a Boy Scout and openly gay, which puts him at risk of being denied the Eagle Scout ranking he has long pursued.

Why are gays always forcing their way into places they're obviously not wanted?

Go start your own gay scouts where you can all buttf*ck each other and circle jerk to your hearts content.

If the boy scouts want to be treated as a private organization then perhaps they should stop trying to draw on public funding.

Scouts should use their own money to rent out meeting spaces and their organizations should pay taxes.

Oh, and anti-gay trolls -- you need to read the articles before commenting. The change that is being proposed is coming from within the Scouts. It would also bring US Scouts in line with Scouts in the rest of the world who have no problem with accepting gay members and gay leaders.
