Boy Scouts executive committee OKs ending ban on gay leaders

Hello Lovelies!

This is such great news! And another victory, but I see this as more of a victory for our children. I remember when I was in the Brownies and then Girl Scouts, my mom was a participant in a lot of what my troops did. I think children of LGBT parents should have the same rights as children of straight parents. They shouldn’t be punished for being born to the “wrong” parents.

NEW YORK (AP) — The executive committee of the Boy Scouts of America has unanimously approved a resolution that would end the organization’s blanket ban on gay adult leaders and let individual scout units set their own policy on the long-divisive issue.

In a statement Monday, the BSA said the resolution was approved by the 17-member executive committee on Friday, and would become official policy if ratified by the organization’s 80-member National Executive Board at a meeting on July 27.
