To those on the right, "he admitted he was gay". He was being honest, that should not be punished. The idea that someone should be kicked out of an organization for telling the truth about who they is just plain wrong and sets a bad example encouraging children to lie.

“ reality, what a concept”

He was everything that they could hope for from a young man who had spent most of his lifetime involved in scouting, but the moment he announced his homosexuality, whether he has acted upon it or not, he ceased being "morally straight" and unworthy of their respect as a human being who had accomplished all that he had, despite the odds against him. The Boy Scouts finally proving that their irrational bigotry has no shame whatsoever.
