Boy Scouts to Review Ban on Gays

The Boy Scouts of America have agreed to review a proposal that would allow individual units to accept gays as adult leaders, but a spokesman says there’s no expectation that the ban on gay leaders will in fact be lifted any time soon.

The resolution was submitted by a Scout leader from the Northeast in April and presented last week at the Scouts’ national meeting in Orlando, Fla., according to BSA spokesman Deron Smith.

Smith said it would be referred to a subcommittee, which will then make a recommendation to the national executive board. The process would likely be completed next year, according to Smith, who said there were no plans at this time to change the policy.
