The national leadership of the Boy Scouts of America are apparently finally about to end their long-standing policy against allowing gays in their organization - a move some local Boy Scout councils in this state have already taken.
According to several news reports, the BSA's national board could announce the change as early as next week.
Last year, the BSA's top leaders reaffirmed their opposition to allowing gays in the Boy Scouts either as leaders or regular scouts. But David Knapp, a gay activist and former Boy Scout leader from Connecticut, says the national council is really out of touch with local councils who have been ignoring the anti-gay policy for a long time now.
