Boy Scouts Of America To Consider Removing Ban On Gay Members

Boy Scouts Of America To Consider Removing Ban On Gay Members
World

The Boy Scouts of America is said to be considering removing its controversial ban on gay members, according to an unnamed source within the organization.

The ban could be lifted as early as next week.

The controversial ban has cost the organization major partners, including UPS and Major League Soccer, and has led to much negative feedback from communities all across the United States.

The Boy Scouts had a committee vote on the ban last July, which was unanimously kept in place because they decided it was the “best policy.”
