Marcie Sillman talks with Reverend Monica Corsaro of the Rainier Beach United Methodist Church about the future of Boy Scout Troop 98.

In March, the Boy Scouts of America revoked Geoffrey McGrath's scoutmaster title after learning about his sexuality. Despite the revocation, the church allowed McGrath, an openly gay man, to continue leading the troop of 15 scout members.

Last Friday, the troop received a letter from the national organization stating that the group has been disaffiliated and can "no longer use the Scouting program or any of its registered marks or brands."
