Finally! Boy Scouts of America Ends Total Ban on Gay Adult Leaders
The Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Board has voted on Monday to end its blanket ban on gay adult leaders while allowing church-sponsored Scout units to maintain the exclusion for religious reasons.
“For far too long, this issue has divided and distracted us,” said BSA president Robert Gates in a video announcing the news. “Now it’s time to unite behind our shared belief in the extraordinary power of scouting to be a force for good in a community and in the lives of its youth members.”
