An Anti-Gay Scoutmaster Gets A Hard Life Lesson From A Straight Eagle Scout And A Gay News Anchor

Watch Eagle Scout Zach Wahls and reporter Don Lemon go ahead and shut down every awful idea this scoutmaster/personal injury lawyer attempts to throw at them.At 1:00 in, the scoutmaster starts saying some really awful stuff. I think my favorite part is at 3:50, when Don says something awesome and the scoutmaster has to do a doubletake.

Currently the Boy Scouts are considering repealing the ban on gay scouts but keeping a ban on gay scout leaders. Essentially, if you get an Eagle Scout badge and are gay, you're banned from scouting when you turn 18. Which is completely nuts. So both Zach and I would love it if you Liked Scouts for Equality on Facebook and shared this. We'll owe you one.
