Boy Scouts Board Approves Policy To Lift Ban on Gay Adult Leaders

The Boy Scouts of America have decided to end the ban on openly gay adult leaders while also allowing church-sponsored Scout groups to still be able to exclude because of heir faith.

This new policy comes after years of controversy and lawsuits, getting the approval on Monday by BSA's 80-member National Executive Board.

"Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the ban was likely to be the target of lawsuits that the Scouts were likely to lose." via
