Eagles can't be gay

Here's an article about a gay kid in the Boy Scouts who is being denied his Eagle award because he's gay, and who in fact was kicked out of Scouting entirely. He also doesn't agree with the principle of "Duty to God."  As his mother pointed out, he's been in the Scouts since he was six, and he's clearly put large amounts of time and energy into the organization. But now that he's old enough to know he's gay (and apparently agnostic or atheist), out he goes. Nice.

And my inlaws wonder why I don't want my boys in Scouting.
