BREAKING NEWS: The Boy Scouts of America is actively exploring a policy shift that includes dropping a ban on gays in the organization — gay scout members or gay scout leaders. They would leave it up to the individual units to make a decision on whether to accept gays into their organization. The leadership have said this change is coming from a grassroots effort from the local level.
“If adopted by the organization’s board of directors, it would represent a profound change on an issue that has been highly controversial — one that even went to the US Supreme Court. The new policy, now under discussion, would eliminate the ban from the national organization’s rules, leaving local sponsoring organizations free to decide for themselves whether to admit gay scouts.”
