A nine-year-old Cub Scout has quit over the Boy Scouts of Americas policy which does not allow any gay member, volunteer or staff member.
Christopher Tiner, of Minot, Maine, had seen in the news that many Eagle Scouts had returned their badges in protest against the exclusion of gay members, volunteers and staff by the Boy Scouts of America.
Scott Tiner, Christophers father, said that the Cub Scout made the decision entirely on his own. Christopher reflected on his position:
I didnt like it that they were kicking people out, he said. I dont think its fair.
Christopher, formerly of pack 139, is reported to be the first scout in Maine to have quit over the controversy, and said that the decision was easy once he thought about it.
Scott, former Scout Leader also commented, saying:
I dont want to have a membership card to an organization that makes it very clear that this is how they feel.

Why do I get the sneaky suspicion that he joined, JUST so he quit because of the “unfairness of the anti-gay rule”.
In this You can bet the farm on it!
Just call me cynical.....
Would not be a bit surprised.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Agreed. My little boys (10, 8, 6, 3) don’t know a thing about homosexuality.
This poor little boy is being set up for a predator.
The decision was easy once his parents decided to make a political spectacle out of their child.
Yes, rather obvious isn’t it?
He should be notified as well as his parents that his is never welcome at a scouting troup again.
Can’t kick out people who were not members.
This little attention whore can drop out of scouts if he disagrees, that’s fine. There are other scout groups he can join, and be exposed to homosexuals who want to “help” him. Like the lesbian coaches “help” their girls.
If a few more gys quit they’ll have enough to start a patrol of Rump Rangers
Recruiting kids among the parents of Minot ought to work out real well
Instead of Wolf Packs, they can have Fudge Packs.
Sandusky wasn’t molesting young girls
Yep. That’s true. I have still seen men that do this sort of thing described as heterosexuals, if they have led anything near a normal heterosexual relationship prior to the infraction. I don’t explain em, I just report em.
Does a 9 year old really know why they kick sodomites out of the scouts? I’ll bet if it were explained to him, he’d have a different opinion....
Yup, found the Buggery Scouts. They can all work on their first degree badge in rectal prolapse... the “rosebud.”
Yeah, because nine year olds come up with stuff like that on theit own.
a 9 year old arriving at a decision like this? Without parents pushing him?
Yeah and they could name them the Rump Rangers. And the Lesbians could name them the Shrub Scouts.
You wouldn't happen to have any, ahh, proof for your outlandish claim would you?
