Ryan Andresen, Gay Teen, Allegedly Refused Eagle Scout Award Because Of His Sexuality

Ryan Andresen, Gay Teen, Allegedly Refused Eagle Scout Award Because Of His Sexuality

“Sorry, this is not news.  You are correct that the item was used to bring attention to the issue but this is not new.  Just the same old issue of people not agreeing with BSA's policies.  There are many organizations with the same policies, many of them are religious organizations.  I do not agree with these policies but it is not news and these organizations have the constitutional right to make their own policies. ”

“What right was he denied? I do not recall anything in the Bill of Rights that addresses this. A private organization does have the legal right to make these rules even if you and I do not like or agree with them. I still do not see news here. Nothing that BSA has not been doing since it was organized. Many other organizations and religeous institutions have similar rules. Again there is no news here, just sensationalism. News would be if something had changed. A new policy by BSA or a legal ruling would be news. This is not.”

“Why is this news? There is nothing new here. BSA policy has not changed. The assistant Scoutmaster and the Scout both had this information.”

“its news because a young man who worked his butt off was denied a right as a MINOR because of his sexuality. the media needs to report these stories more often in my personal opinion. the news is so corrupt and they never report the "real" stories”

“Pennsylvania's governor still does not get it. Covering up sexual abuse has to have consequences. Perhaps others will be more prompt in acting when they see there are consequences to covering up or ingnoring crime within their instituions. Pay the fine, stop whinning and take steps to keep this kind of sexual abuse from happenning again.”
