Boy Scouts May End Ban on Gays

NBC News reports that the Boy Scouts of America "is actively considering an end to its decades-long policy of banning gay scouts or scout leaders."

"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."
