This Heartbreaking Video From An Ex-Scout Shows Why The Boy Scouts Need To End The Ban On Gay Kids… And Gay Adults

Share

The Boy Scouts of America made news last week when they announced that they intended to defy the Rick Perrys and Rick Santorums of the world by admitting openly gay Scouts.

But the group does not intend to end its policy of prohibiting gay adults to serve as troop leaders.

Filmmaker and Eagle Scout Todd Bieber, of The Onion and Upright Citizens Brigade, hopes to convince the organization he loves to reconsider this decision when it votes on policy later in May. So he made this video to help end the discrimination.
