Reinstate Brian Peffly, assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 192
This petition had 14,913 supporters
Brian Peffly is an assistant Scoutmaster with Columbus, Ohio Troop 192, the very same unit in which Brian earned his Eagle Scout rank, the highest award a Scout can earn. In addition to being an an Eagle Scout, an intensive care unit nurse, and a model citizen, Brian is also gay.
Last year, he was asked during an interview if he was gay and he followed the Scout Law ("A Scout is Trustworthy") and told the truth. Recently, Brian had his membership revoked by the Boy Scouts of America, despite a local statement against discrimination.
The Simon Kenton Council, which oversees Scouting in central Ohio, should live up to their aspirational statement on diversity and unilaterally reinstate Brian. Bob Gates, the President of the Boy Scouts of America, should lead the BSA to a full end of their anti-gay membership policy.
