Boy Scouts of America http://wyso.org en Boy Scouts of America Lifts Ban on Gay Scouts http://wyso.org/post/boy-scouts-america-lifts-ban-gay-scouts <p></p><p>On Thursday, May 23, 2013, the Boy Scouts of America National Council voted to ease a long-standing ban and allow openly gay boys to be accepted as scouts. But, as WYSO’s Jerry Kenney reports, not all of the controversial issue was settled.</p><p>About 1,400 voting members of nation's leading youth organization, cast their ballots at an annual meeting in Dallas, Texas. More than 60 percent of those voting supported the proposal to life the ban.</p> Fri, 24 May 2013 05:26:15 +0000 Jerry Kenney 33664 at http://wyso.org Boy Scouts of America Lifts Ban on Gay Scouts
