An Idaho reservist and his dad plan to bike 1,800 miles to protest the Boy Scouts of America ban on gay members and troop leaders, according to a report by KIFI-TV News.
Spc. Joe McGrath and his dad Dave, a former intel officer who served in Gulf War I, plan to bike from Idaho to the the scouts’ headquarters in Irving, Texas.
Dave McGrath, a lifelong scout, told KIFI two of his six sons are gay, as his brother–a former Eagle Scout.
“I love the Boy Scouts,” he said. “I wish them all the best, and yet they discriminate against people I love.”
