Boy Scouts of America Shuts Down Seattle Troop Over Gay Scoutmaster

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has shut down a Seattle troop for its refusal to remove an openly gay scoutmaster.

The BSA has revoked the charters of the Rainier Beach United Methodist Church and its two scouting units, Troop 98 and Pack 98, for standing by Geoffrey McGrath after the BSA ousted him as a scoutmaster in March, according to Scouts for Equality, a group that lobbies against discrimination in the scouting movement. 268 more words
