Boy Scout leaders can be gay, but church sponsored groups can still discriminate against them
Boy Scouts of America has finally ended its ban on gay scout leaders. The policy was unanimously voted for by the organization's executive committee last Friday. The result was announced yesterday and the resolution is effective immediately.
It's worth noting, however, that churches that sponsor Scout units are still allowed to discriminate as an exercise of their religious freedom. Roughly 70 percent of Scout units are sponsored by churches.
