Last month, the Boy Scouts of America revoked the troop charter of a Seattle-area United Methodist Church because the church would not boot the scoutmaster Geoffrey McGrath, a married, gay Eagle Scout. Mr. McGrath is first gay adult to be removed from the Boy Scouts of America since the organization’s vote in May of 2013 to end its ban on gay youth.
MFSA’s friend Rev. Dr. Monica Corsaro (left), the pastor of Ranier Beach UMC, explains why in this article in Time Magazine.
Washington state’s legislature sent this letter addressed to Rev. Corsaro in support of their retention of Mr. McGrath as Scoutmaster.
