A Baptist church in Atlanta is OK with gay Scouts. Really.

Add this share

Amidst all of the huffing, puffing, hand-wringing and rampant asshattery in Atlanta over the Boy Scouts allowing gay troop members, there is some hope for gay scouts. Even from a Baptist church.

Some Baptist church pastors in metro Atlanta, worried about horny gay Scouts, kicked out the troops they sponsored for years. And along the way, compared gay Scouts to alcoholics and sluts who should be stoned.

Not this church. Not the congregation at Druid Hills Baptist Church, who make their views clear on a sign in front of the building that sits at the busy intersection of Ponce and Highland avenues. But fair warning, state Sen. John Albers won't be happy. Or Erick Erickson.
