Sounds like change is coming to Boy Scouts of America:
As early as next week, the Boy Scouts of America may announce it will allow gay Scouts and troop leaders, a spokesman for the group has told USA TODAY.
If this policy shift is approved by the national board meeting next week, it will be a sharp reversal of the Scouts' decades' old national policy banning homosexuals.
P.S. If you'd like to send the Boy Scouts a very polite message encouraging the reversal of this ban, it looks like the best way to do so is via this form.
