  • Boy Scouts revoke Seattle church's charter over gay scout leader

    Reuters - Tue 22 Apr, 2014 10:52 AM IST

    By Jonathan Kaminsky REUTERS - The Boy Scouts of America has severed ties with a Seattle church that has insisted on allowing a gay man to remain as a troop leader, the youth organization said on Monday. The decision to revoke the Rainier Beach United Methodist Church's charter comes as the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) faces pressure from social conservatives over the rule change, as well as from gay rights groups who say it did not go far enough. "Because the church no longer agrees to the terms of the BSA chartered organization agreement, which includes following BSA policies, it is no longer authorized to offer the Scouting program," said Boy Scouts spokesman Deron Smith in a statement. "We are saddened by this development." The BSA last month revoked the membership of Geoffrey McGrath, a gay scout leader of Troop 98 in Seattle over openly stating his sexual orientation in a news interview that discussed his group.
