Would gay Scout be honored?

By From page A12 | December 30, 2012

We congratulate Jack Meyer on becoming an Eagle Scout but can’t stop wondering what would happen if a gay Boy Scout in Davis were to complete the requirements to become an Eagle Scout. We are concerned that he would be discriminated against and denied this honor as Ryan Andresen, 18, of Moraga was denied his in October. Or would he be allowed to receive the recognition he deserves and have one of our Scout troops risk the possibility of losing its charter?
