BSA Executives Move on Gay Leadership Ban

I’ve now read this form two sources, so it must be legitimate. Here’s what the Deseret News has to say:

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 executive committee on Friday, and would become official policy if ratified by the organization's larger National Executive Board at a meeting on July 27.

There’s more detail at the Buzzfeed link, indulging test of the resolution.

The BSA is also talking about it, as is the LDS Church.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens at the National Executive Board meeting July 27. I've already expressed my thoughts on the matter.

Who is on that board?

Wikipedia has a list of 2011 board members – it’s not clear from this list if that’s current membership.

Obviously, it’ll be interesting to see how this unfolds. And it will unfold the week we’re at Scout Camp. Maybe the news will penetrate the news blackout you experience in the woods. Maybe not. As for me, I'm not ready to put on the sackcloth and ashes.
