SEATTLE, WA, April 2, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have removed a Seattle-area troop leader and banned him from the organization for going public with his homosexuality, in what is thought to be the first such case since the BSA voted to allow openly homosexual youth, but not adults, to join.

Scoutmaster Geoff McGrath, 49, a former Eagle Scout and leader of Troop 98 in Rainier Beach, had his BSA membership revoked Monday after an NBC News reporter contacted the organization seeking comment for a profile the network was doing on “the first openly gay Scoutmaster in the nation.”

Looks like a test case to get them back into the courts.

Absolutely a test case. It was inevitable. Lawsuit in 3...2...1...Go!

If the BSA thinks that just because they sold out on the gay scout thing that this is going to buy them favor, they are sadly mistaken. The radical homosexuals are going to fly all over them; they won’t know what hit them.

Selling your soul to the devil is never a good idea.

A culture that acquiesces to the vile molestation of young boys by decadent older homosexual men will not last.

The homos wanted to control the Boy Scouts and install adult pervert facilitators (den leaders / scout master but the BSA wouldn’t let them because it was just too obvious what the intended goal was so they took the next best thing hoping the younger gay scouts wouldn’t out their gay scoutmasters who operated in secret... Further the homos wanted a who new batch of young innocent minds to pervert to fulfill NAMBLA orders. Do I have the end game just about figured out?

From the article:

McGrath’s troop was chartered just after BSA voted to allow homosexual Scouts, by Rainier Beach United Methodist Church – which performs same-sex “marriages,” and where McGrath is a member. Pastor Monica Corsaro – herself a prominent homosexual activist and Planned Parenthood’s first-ever chaplain – told NBC News she purposely pushed McGrath to lead the troop, even though they both knew it violated BSA policy.

A “chaplain” for Planned Parenthood? Sick and perverted, and she is going to face judgment for her mixing the holy work of God with the murder of unborn children.

How dumb were the parents to enroll their sons in such a group?

They might as well let single men lead girl scouts troops.

What parent wouldn’t be ok with one taking their child into the woods to “explore”?

Wish the Catholic Church did the same thing. There would barely have been any molestations if the expelled every homo.

I’ll bet if they dug deep enough they’d find a pedophile rap on him, likely from another state. Gays don’t just hang around young boys for no apparent reason.

homos almost destroyed the Boy Scouts when they weren't allowed in. Now this.

Any parent that allows their kids to join the BSA or GSA has mush for brains.

Here is the 2012 Republican Party’s presidential nominee reaffirming his 20 year campaign for gay scout leaders.

“A campaign assistant for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney confirmed that the former Massachusetts governor’s opposition to the Boy Scouts’ ban on homosexual leaders, which he publicly expressed in 1994, still stands. According to the Deseret News , Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the Associated Press that Romney is still holding to the political stand he adopted nearly 20 years ago when he said during an unsuccessful run for Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate that while he supported “the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” he also felt that “all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.””

Homosexual males are more than likely pedophile sexual predators.

The BSA rarely targets leaders; they only seem to act if the leaders make a big deal of their sexuality.

The unwritten rule seems to be that if you don’t try to sexualize the scouts (an organization that is NOT supposed to be about sexual matters), then they won’t really bother to ask you what your personal habits are.

It isn’t on the adult application.

A priest who signed the charter papers in all likelyhood, and KNEW what she was doing was against the rules, which means she lied on the application.

I would not want to be led by a liar. Or a woman preacher, for that matter, given the biblical viewpoint on that matter.

Then why don’t the BS leaders come out and say that? That caved to allowing “gay boy scouts”, which is ridiculous. Do little boys really claim to be homosexual? They can’t have it both ways - saying homosexuality is perfectly normal and acceptable but we can’t have true homosexuals as leaders because they might prey on the little boys and teach them about being homosexual, even though we think homosexuality is normal and healthy.

No way in the world I would let my son by in the BS or my daughter in the GS.

I am sick of this crap.

You sickness is mental

There are no 11 or 13 year old queers. Hence, no need to ban them

My spouse was friends with a guy. He was nice enough. His mothers boyfriend molested him. He turned out to be homosexual. Needless to say when we decided to have kids (our 1st was a boy) we told him we would no longer have any further contact with him. A homosexual male created by molestation is prolly almost guaranteed to pay it forward.

Yep, everyone knew this would happen.
It’s just happening a bit faster than I expected.
I figured they’d give it a year before suing to get gay leaders.

Or, they’d wait until one of the “graduates” from the prior decision sued to be a scout leader.

Parents - put your boys in Trail Life and be done with it.

And the Left DENIES there is a "homosexual agenda".

I don’t think there’ll be a need for any lawsuit though...with the announcement that Robert Gates is soon to be the President of the BSA, the change will happen from within and soon.

The BSA is committing suicide...

This jackwagon got removed because he was being an activist of sorts...if he had kept his yap shut, they’d have probably never known or looked the other way...the BSA has made its bed by pursuing corporate $$. The quid pro quo was that corporations (who value “diversity” just below profits) got to place representatives at the highest levels to make decisions about the BSA.

What is it with you and the ad hominems towards anyone who isn’t drinking the politically correct, homosexual BSA kool-aid?

So “scout like”, I guess this is the “new” tolerance on display by the brave new BSA...

As a self-proclaimed Scouter, you should know that is absolutely no excuse, especially towards those who have little to no idea on what is REALLY going on within the once “hallowed” halls of the BSA.

Homosexual males are more than likely pedophile sexual predators.

Actually I think it's the reverse.

Pedophile sexual predators are more than likely homoosxual males.
