Boy Scouts Say Member Leaked Potential Antigay Policy Change

Source: Advocate

The Boy Scouts of America did not intend to make public its consideration of a policy change relating to its long-standing ban on gay scouts and troop leaders, according to The New York Times.

"Someone leaked the information," Tico A. Perez, BSA's national commissioner, told executive board members at a town hall meeting Tuesday, according to a tape recording obtained by the Times. Perez said the leak came from someone who "either didn't like what we were doing, or they thought they were going to be helpful to the conversation.... We are amazingly sorry with the fact that this got out and got ahead of us."

The organization itself touted a board meeting Wednesday as a potential turning-point in the decades-long ban, but then released a statement delaying any decision until BSA's National Executive Board meeting in May.

Deron Smith, a spokesman for the Boy Scouts, confirmed in an email to the Times that the information had been leaked, and that the source of the leak had not been identified.

1. Sounds like the beginning of a campaign to 'walk it back' if you ask me ...

Hope I'm wrong, but ... a release like this has that 'air about it', unfortunately.
