POLL: Should Boy Scouts Lift Ban on Gay Membership?
Proposed policy shift would be decided by local governing councils.
The Boy Scouts of America may reconsider changing its standing policy currently banning gay youth and leaders from its organization, USA Today reports today.
The call for a shift in the organization's long-standing policy comes after local chapters and some members of the national board called for reconsideration.
The proposed new policy, if approved during next week's national board meeting, would allow decisions to be made locally by the 290 governing councils and 116,000 sponsoring religious and civic groups.
