Boy Scouts Banned By Alabama Pastor Greg Walker After Gay Youth Policy Lifted NationwideThe Boy Scouts of America's (BSA) decision to lift its controversial ban on gay youth participants has received praise and criticism in equal measure, but one Alabama church leader isn't having any of it.
In the wake of the Boy Scouts' ruling, Pastor Greg Walker tells WBRC-TV that Boy Scout troops will no longer be welcome to meet onsite at the First Baptist Church of Helena.
"It's hard on a personal level to say to a troop of young boys who have done nothing wrong and to the leaders, 'You're not welcome here,'" Walker told the news channel. "I didn't make the decision, Boy Scouts of America did."
How so very Christian of you Greg. Oh wait.
