Boy Scouts plan to drop ban on gay members not leaders
The Boy Scouts of America announced a “compromise” national policy Friday that would allow boys to be members regardless of sexual orientation, but would keep the ban on gay adult leaders. USA Today has a story here.
Both “liberals” and “social conservatives” decried the policy for obvious reasons. Conservatives complained that it says it is all right to be gay until age 18.
David Pakman has a video on the previous policy here.
The video mentions that President Obama is an honorary president of the Boy Scouts and could decline the post until the policy is completely reversed.
