The still-unjust policy of banning openly gay Boy Scouts of America leaders and adults from the organization is getting center-stage attention today as one twin brother, who received the organization’s highest honor, will be kicked out after he turns 21. Liam and August Easton-Calabria happily received their Eagle Scout Award on Sunday, but Liam will be forced to leave BSA because of their policy of banning openly gay adults, but not gay youths. The twins, who have been in Scouts since age 11 are heartbroken over the discriminatory policy. “It was an interesting revelation to see the Boy Scouts come together as a non-inclusive organization,” Liam said. “I don’t think it’s true to the scouting way. I mean, absolutely, scouting should be an inclusive organization.” [Chanel4]
