Last week Zach Wahls was on River to River, praising the Boy Scouts' consideration of a policy that would allow gay scouts and scout leaders to join the organization....a decision that has since been delayed by the organization. Continuing our coverage of this issue, Patriots for Christ president, Craig Bergman, sits down with host Ben Kieffer to provide opposition to Wahls' argument.
Just last year BSA reaffirmed its policy that gay members and gay or lesbian leaders are prohibited from participation. However, now the BSA is considering revising that policy so that each local chapter can individually decide its policy on gay membership. Ben Kieffer talks with Iowa Eagle Scout Zach Wahls, who is one of the national leaders encouraging the Boy Scouts to be more inclusive.
Iowa City native Zach Wahls skyrocketed to celebrity after a video of his speech before the Iowa Legislature became the top political youtube video of 2011. Now he’s written a book called My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family that looks at growing up with two lesbian mothers. Ben talks with Zach about the book and his newfound celebrity, which includes an appearance this week on Late Night with David Letterman.
