Boy Scouts Ultimately Deny Ryan Andresen Eagle Badge For Being Gay And A Heathen


The Eagle application was forwarded, by a volunteer, to the local council but it was not approved because this young man proactively stated that he does not agree to Scouting’s principle of ‘duty of God’ and does not meet Scouting’s membership requirements. Therefore, he is not eligible to receive the rank of Eagle.”
