Get ready for the firestorm. In the biggest news to hit the Boy Scouts of America since their terrible decision to allow homosexual youths to participate in scouting, they have just fired an openly “gay” scoutmaster.
In a first, the BSA fired 49-year-old homosexual Eagle Scout Geoff McGrath. He had been asked by his Methodist pastor, Reverend Monica Corsaro of Rainier Beach United Methodist Church in Seattle, Washington, to start a new troop last Fall. McGrath had been leading the troop since that time.
BSA spokesman Deron Smith said the organization decided to take action when the media contacted their headquarters and made them aware of his homosexuality. Reports are that McGrath inappropriately discussed his sexual preferences in the troop setting. McGrath told that he didn’t hide his “orientation” and that the Boy Scouts knew about his open support of gay rights. “They were fully aware of my prior activism,” he stated.
“Our policy is that we do not ask people about their sexual orientation,” Deron Smith told NBC, “and it’s not an issue until they deliberately inject it into Scouting in an inappropriate fashion.”
Although a recent BSA policy change made in May of 2013 allows homosexual youths to join the organization, “gay” men are still not allowed to be scoutmasters.
All of the usual suspects in the militant homosexual movement are already in an uproar over this latest development.
