young lady, BSA current policy shot her down. BSA is in the process of change. There is an on going battle brewing about changing BSA policy to allow homosexuals into the Scouting program. Lots of folks disapprove of this policy and many agree with it. A huge vote was recently postponed until later this spring to allow for more consideration and in-put into the possibility of change.
As a 43plus year veteran of Boy Scouting, I think this is the perfect time for BSA to change its antiquated policy. At a time where we want to reach more young people, excluding a group of people, based on who they love is pretty stupid. Homosexuality has been around forever and will not go away. We need to open our program to all and not discriminate. This Eagle Scout wants to see the elimination of a policy banning homosexuals from being part of BSA.
