sbs comment: I didn’t know his name at the time, but my understanding is that it was during Rex Tillerson’s time as head of the Boy Scouts that the organization decided to stop discriminating against homosexuals. I was thus disappointed, albeit not surprised, when President Trump chose the very same Tillerson to be his Secretary of State. I haven’t read the full text of today’s article, but the front page page highlight evokes the same type of disgust that I feel when seeing stories about Catholic priest pedophiles being protected by the church, and when seeing stories about teachers’ unions protecting teachers who should not be allowed to be present in a classroom of children.
