Skip to comments.Gay Scouts come out, rally around teen's Eagle Scout bid

Matthew Kimball walked away from the Boy Scouts in 2005.
Since he was gay, Kimball knew that his sexual orientation would be at odds with the Boy Scouts of Americas policy banning gay Scouts and leaders. Kimball was both: an Eagle Scout and an assistant Scoutmaster.
Kimball had not revealed his sexual orientation during his Scouting years. But he decided, like a number of other gay Scouts, that he could no longer stay publicly quiet about the organizations membership policy after learning that Ryan Andresen, a teen from his own Troop 212 in Moraga, Calif., had been denied the Eagle rank last week because he is gay.
My immediate reaction was frustration with myself, because I felt if I had done what this kid did
he wouldnt have to be going through this, hopefully, said Kimball, referring to Andresens coming out in July to his troop in a letter.

Don’t let the door hit ya.
Wonder who the sexual deviant that got ahold of this kid is...
The gays won’t relent... the BS of A is their ultimate fantasy.
Let us in, let us in, boys, boys, boys, yum yum yum!
Just remember this, conservatives, Mitt Romney supports this activity!
This is not an issue when compared with the Presidential election and the fate of this Country - the Country that allows homos to walk freely among us. Though plenty of libs and homos would like it to be, I'm sure.
So some sissy boy who didn't reveal his sexual orientation (thus took a lying oath), is upset because another sissy boy can't be an eagle scout because he's not morally straight as defined by the Boy Scouts.
So what? Doesn't he know that plenty of us have bigger fish to fry?
Gee, I guess we should just keep bambi in office then.
Romney seems to support freedom. So do I.
If a homo wants to be a homo, I'm fine with it. If a homo wants to “marry” another homo and can find a **cough** preacher that will do it willingly - I'm fine with it.
In either case, I should not be FORCED to endure it, or condone it.
It’s always the same with these liars....ACTING like they had to hide this sexual choice when all along they intend to demand change with the wounded dove scheme.
As does Obama...If you want to get in a cherry picking contest I believe you’re going to lose, FRiend.

Put scores of them on the bench in Massachusetts and supports the repeal of DADT.
Wake me up when the blue blood country club banker faction of the Washingtonians bothers to do anything about the homosexual problem.
The fruit movement is just a front....
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
They may be but define "pretty similar."
Then address the number one responsibility of the President and CinC as to the protection and security of our nation regarding our military and foreign relations.
Why in the world would someone want to be in an organization that they know, going in, rejects their lifestyle and they know they cannot, truthfully, live by the group’s code? To destroy it from within (they’d call it changing it for the better)?
Can a president order the BSA to admit homosexuals by executive order?
I am among those who support ABO (anyone but Obama).
My dog licks her butt and I find it disgusting, but if she was running against obama I'd say “well, at least she keeps her butt clean”.
My first choice was not Romney, but I have grown to respect his good qualities and overlook the, well, differences I have with him.
The time for negatives was during the selection process, the time for positives is during the election process.
