Derick Dillard, Duggar son-in-law, reality star, and missionary, recently spoke out about the decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow transgender boys to join their organization. Speaking as a scout himself, and as someone currently connected to the organization, Dillard decried the decision, calling it sad.
However, he may have either had second thoughts about how he described his connection to the organization, or may have even been asked to speak as an individual rather than as a possible representative of the organization, because shortly after he tweeted his complaints, Dillard withdrew one of his statements, leaving only a simpler tweet that did not connect him to the organization.
Inquisitr reported on Derick Dillard's initial reaction, and included his tweet.
"As an Eagle Scout myself and the brother of an Eagle Scout and a BSA District Executive, yes, this is sad."
On January 30, Derick Dillard tweeted, quoting a tweet from Josh Duggar's former employer, the conservative lobbying group Family Research Council, which, in turn, spoke of the BSA's change in rules.
