Would supporters please also sign to demand that MSU make things right by LGBT students that were harassed by senior administrators in the 1990s? https://www.change.org/p/msu-still-ignores-its-past-abuse-of-gay-students-has-made-no-real-change-endtheabusemsu

although I do not know any one gay in scouts. My boyfriend is a scout leader in training. and we think that no one should be denied anything because of who they are. I am proud to take a stand... I know that where i live the scout leaders left it up to the charters after a vote from all the scouts. and since you can't have scouts with out charters I think for thier group they took the step that most will not.

No! This is wrong. Show my post like all the others. Boy Scouts is about chivalry and making men out of boys. An Eagle is for an honorable man. Learn your identity the way you ARE created.

A person's sexual orientation does not define who they are or what kind of a person they are. Ryan earned his Eagle award - his participation is what counts, his sexual orientation does not.

This boy is the same person he was BEFORE he came out. He worked hard for the awards and is an outstanding student and role model. He deserves his Eagle Award.

What you doing is discrimination. Because a male or female is gay does not mean that they are pedophiles it does not mean they are sexual pred.

ators. I was involved in Boy Scouts for 20 years with two of my children and one of them was gay and in our troop he was never discriminated against. This young man deserves to receive his Eagle Scout award that he worked so diligently towards.
