Ryan Andresen, of Moraga, has made it into the national news after recently being denied the honor of becoming an Eagle Scout due to him being openly homosexual.
Andresen has successfully completed all Eagle Scout requirements, including his final project, which was installing an anti-bullying wall at Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School, but Troop 212 will not honor him.
Andresen’s membership in the Boy Scouts was also revoked when his sexuality was made public.
Andresen’s mother, Karen, started an online petition on Change.org to fight for her son to receive his Eagle Scout honor. The petition has over 250,000 signatures already. Andresen’s story is also trending on social media across the internet.
