Boy Scouts of America Fire Gay Scout Leader

Boy Scouts of America Fire Gay Scout Leader

The Boy Scouts of America abruptly fired an openly gay scout leader on Monday. The faith based youth organization cited its policy that prevents adults from “deliberately injecting” their sexuality into the organization.

Geoff NcGrath, 49, was a scoutmaster with the newly formed Troop 98 in Seattle, WA. He was fired after the BSA got word that he planned to send a press release to the media announcing he was the first openly gay scout master in America.

McGrath, who was aware of the BSA’s policy banning gay scout leaders, said he believed the organization’s attitude had changed after they welcomed gay boy scouts.

Not surprisingly, he is now portraying himself as the victim.

“It’s extremely disappointing to not be fully supported and defended in my membership,” McGrath told NBC News. “They are complaining that [his homosexuality] is a distraction to Scouting and they don’t seem to understand that the distraction is self-inflicted.”

McGrath was hired by Seattle’s Boy Scouts Council shortly after the BSA made its landmark decision to welcome openly gay youths.

A spokesman for the BSA said the organization had no idea McGrath was gay — even though he has been married to his “husband” for 20 years.

“Our policy is that we do not ask people about their sexual orientation, and it’s not an issue until they deliberately inject it into Scouting in an inappropriate fashion,” BSA spokesman Deron Smith wrote in an email to the NY Daily News.

Another scout leader accused McGrath of trying to promote the gay agenda.

“We became aware of his intentions to make a public statement about his orientation and use our program as a means to further a personal agenda,” Seattle Council leader Sharon Moulds told the Daily News.

      So Gays fought to be actively involved in the Scouts, the Scouts got all that backlash and changed their policy. Now they frown upon him telling that the Scouts are progressive and changed their views. Firing him has set them back again. I guess they didn’t learn the first time. How are we to believe that you changed your bias ways with no proof??!! Firing him now gives your organization of being bias and conforming for the media.

      but why should who u choose to sleep with be important, if they dont want those personal things attached to the organization than thats their policy. YOU are a scout leader DO YOUR job…personal is personal. If that was in their policy then he knew the rules… He attempted to go against policy… So therefore they had every right to let him go. I DONT CARE HOW U SLICE IT.

Not you releasing self serving press releases :stop: Those boys you are working with do not care or need to know about what you do off the clock and during NON work related hours. People are full of that BS. I am tired of it. Watch the gay mafia come out. They are wrong.

      @wasting time

      I don’t think it set them back at all. He wasn’t fired for being gay he was fired for attempting to make a spectacle of himself at the agency’s expense. Any company in America would terminate you for the same thing, not just homosexuality. Using the company name to assert a personal opinion publicallyis not allowed.
