BREAKING: Boy Scouts to Admit Openly Gay Youths as Members
from Advocate.com

The Boy Scouts of America’s national council voted today to end the organization’s discriminatory policy barring openly gay youth from membership, reports the Associated Press. However, the group’s ban on gay adult leaders remains in place.

from The New York Times:

But the decision is unlikely to bring peace to the Boy Scouts as they struggle to keep a foothold in a swirling cultural landscape, ensuring continued lobbying and debate in the months and year to come. The group put off the even more divisive question of whether to allow openly gay adults and leaders, and those on both sides of the debate predicted that, with the resolution’s passage, the Boy Scouts would soon be forced to start allowing gay adults, whether by lawsuits or embarrassment at the twisted logic of forcing an Eagle Scout who turns 18 to quit.

Even though this is great news, this is not enough, until there is no discrimination on any age.
