SEATTLE (AP) — The Boy Scouts of America has revoked the charter of a Seattle church because it allowed a gay adult to continue leading a troop.

A Boy Scouts of America attorney told Rainier Beach United Methodist Church last week that it could no longer hosts troops under the Boy Scouts name.

The church has stood by Geoff McGrath. His membership in the Scouts was revoked last month after Boy Scouts of America officials learned of his sexual orientation. The group does not allow openly gay adults to serve as leaders.

The Rev. Monica Corsaro said in a statement that her church is inclusive of all people, and has obtained legal counsel to evaluate its options.

McGrath said Monday he will continue to participate in the church’s youth program even if it can’t use the Boy Scouts name.

What do you think? Should the charter be revoked? Does it matter if an adult leader is gay in Boy Scouts?

One thought on “Boy Scouts Ban Seattle Church From Hosting Troop Due To Gay Adult Leader

  1. Marcus on said:

    The Boy Scout Code includes being “morally straight”. Homosexuals are not morally straight and being a religious based organization the Boy Scouts are not going to redefine “morally straight” which is against what the Holy Bible explicitly says,

    “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13 KJV)

    This is of the devil to attempt to force an ungodly belief and behavior on this country and world for that matter to get people to back off what the HOLY BIBLE EXPLICITLY SPEAKS AGAINST!

    The devil is a lie!
