    Wow that isn't happening in America. If the American organization was to find out that I am gay they would strip away my Eagle Scout that I spent 12 years working towards. I am proud that I was able to accomplish it but I am not proud of the organization itself.

    They wouldn't strip you of your Eagle award. But they wouldn't let you be an adult leader. I'm an eagle scout too! So good job getting that.

    "The organization does have religious ties, as it does not permit agnostic or atheist members. "
