Denise Steele (NOT pictured at left) started out in Boy Scouts as a den leader for her son, Jackson, 12, for his school, Horizon Elementary. No other parent would step up to the plate to take on the responsibility of leading a Cub Scout troop.
But in June, Steele’s chances to further bond with her son through scouting were dashed. The mother was removed from the troop after one of the other assistant scout masters discovered Steele is a lesbian.
Doug: Probably because she was turning the boy scouts into… lesbians? Or maybe because she was a bad influence on them? Oh, wait…
Her son’s troop excelled at everything, including accomplishing badges and winning the Blue and Gold Award all five years, one of the highest awards for Boy Scouts.
Doug: Fear and ignorance are a nasty combination, aren’t they?
