Boy Scouts of America- Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
SEATTLE — The Boys Scouts of America has removed an openly gay troop leader in Seattle after saying he made an issue out of his sexual orientation.
The organization told 49-year-old Geoff McGrath in a letter Monday that “it has no choice but to revoke your registration” after he told news media he was gay.
McGrath said Tuesday he was stunned. He has been leading Seattle Troop 98 since its application was approved last fall. He told The Associated Press he plans to continue with his duties.
The Boy Scouts of America began accepting openly gay youths this year after a bitter nationwide debate, but it continues to exclude openly gay adults from leadership positions.
In a statement Tuesday, the organization said it “does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of our members” but that McGrath provided information to national leadership and the media that led to his removal.

Gotta respect the Boy Scouts here. Not because of the anti-gay thing. I love the gays. Cam from Modern Family might be the funniest guy on television. At the dog park my pup Oakley humps just as many guy dogs as bitches, and we are still tight. Found out the truth about my Uncle Peter’s “roommate” Peter when I was like 13, and I love those queers. So yes, I am totally against the Boys Scouts kicking out Seattle’s version of Big Gay Al.
But you HAVE TO respect the balls on the Boy Scouts for taking this stand in Seattle. Other than San Fran, Seattle and Portland are the gay capitals of the West Coast. Just the epicenter of political correctness and gay rights. Yea, for some reason the lesbian to gay dude ratio tilts insanely towards the lesbian side. Can’t take 3 steps without walking into a plaid wearing butch couple spouting off about feminism. Yet the Boy Scouts of America decided this was the place to make a stand. I can picture the leaders of the Boy Scouts as being 90 year old men sitting around a wooden table they built themselves, still calling black people the coloreds, and making rules like it was the 1940’s. They couldn’t give two flying fucks about what the normal world demands. Would John Wayne let homos in the Boy Scouts? So why would they? Keep doing you Boy Scouts of America, keep the non athletic nerds that are actually a part of your organization from going gay, effectively removing any chance of them getting laid before 30.
P.S.- John Wayne might be my favorite American ever. Do yourself a favor and watch a John Wayne movie ASAP. He plays the same exact character in about 300 Westerns and each one is spectacular.
