Boy Scouts to review ban on gay scouts and leaders
Thu, 07 Jun 2012 12:11:59 GMT —
The Boy Scouts of America may be considering reversing a 102-year old policy banning gay scouts and scout leaders.
The proposal would allow individual units to accept gays as adult leaders, however a spokesman for the Boy Scouts of America says although the organization will carefully consider the resolution, there are no plans to change the policy.
The resolution was submitted by a Scout leader from the Northeast back in April. It was presented last week at the Scoutsâ?? national meeting in Orlando, Fla. The resolution will be presented to a subcommittee, which will then make a recommendation to the national executive board. The process would likely be completed by next year.
