Despite being warned that there would be repercussions if any scout wore his uniform in the gay pride parade in Salt Lake City, that did not stop a bunch of Scouts who decided to take a stand.
The Utah Pride Festival Parade came a little more than a week after national delegates of the Boy Scouts of America approved allowing gay youth to join, ending controversial membership guidelines that had in recent years dogged one of the nation’s most popular organizations for children and teens.
Now for the best part:
On Saturday, the chief scouting executive warned Utah Boy Scouts not to wear their uniforms in the parade, citing the organization’s policy to “not advocate any social or political position.”
Not advocate a social position? Really? I find that a bit ass backwards considering they promote discrimination…
