The father of a 9-year-old Cub Scout says he’s been forced out of a leadership role with the organization and ordered not to wear the uniform, because he’s gay. Jon Langbert was part of the organization in Dallas, Texas. The openly gay father says the scouts gave him the shirt to wear last year until other parents complained. He was then asked to stop wearing the shirt and give up his leadership role position. A representative from the Scouts says they have a policy that gays and atheists are not allowed to be leaders, so Langbert was never a leader in the first place. The Scouts welcomed Langbert to volunteer his time, though not as a leader.
We want to hear from you. Should the scouts take away Langbert’s role after parents complained, or should he be allowed to remain in the position? Tell us what you think. Kyra Phillips may read some of your comments during the 10 o’clock hour of CNN Newsroom.
