"Today I am returning my Eagle Scout medal. I will not be a part of a bigoted, ignorant, and misguided organization. Shame on you for harming the human dignity and wounding the status of gay youth.
The Boy Scouts of America should belong to all our country’s young men; regardless of race, sexual orientation, or religion. Being morally straight includes being honest about who you are. Helping other people includes affirming their uniqueness and value.
History will shame you.”
