Church drops troop after decision to allow gay scouts

A Berwyn priest has made the decision not to renew a charter with a group of local boy scouts due to the national organization’s decision to admit openly gay scouts.

Berwyn Boy Scout Troop 60 was told by its sponsor, St. Odillo Church, in June that it would not renew its charter this year, because of the national organization’s decision.

However, the scout troop said they accept the decision, and the scouts have found another church to sponsor them, moved on and hold no bad feelings to St. Odillo’s, their home for almost 70 years, according to members.
