BREAKING: In Historic Vote Boy Scouts Elect To End Ban On Gay Adult Scout Leaders

After a decision by the Boy Scouts of America Executive Committee earlier this month, the Scouts’ National Executive Board just voted moments ago to drop its decades-old ban on gay adult Scout leaders.

The vote was 45-12.

The Executive Committee adopted a resolution on July 10, after Boy Scouts of America president Robert Gates in May called for the ban to be dropped.

Local scouting groups will be allowed to decide for themselves, and may continue the ban if they choose to do so, or eliminate it immediately.
