Boy Scouts Reconsider Policy Against Gay Members

| 1 Comment

After receiving many complaints regarding The Boy Scouts of America's policy of not allowing openly gay members, the organization is rethinking their position and possibly revoking the rule.

According to CNN, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance have been trying to stop the ban since April. Much of the organization is sponsored by religious affiliations, which may cause issues with the policy change. However, CBS News says that those organizations "would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue.

Although they reaffirmed their stance against homosexual members just last year, USA Today says that the policy could be revoked "as early as next week."
