Boy Scouts Reconsidering Policies Barring Gay Leaders and Members
The Boy Scouts of America is considering a dramatic change in its policy of excluding gays as leaders and youth members.
The Boy Scouts are considering giving the sponsors - be it the civic or religious group - the right to decide how to address the issue.
The announcement of the possible change came Monday after years of protests over the policy. This includes petition campaigns that have prompted some corporations to suspend Boy Scout donations.
