Boy Scouts End Ban on Gay Scouts

By a vote of 757-475 the BSA voted to lift it's ban on gay scouts. The bans on gay leaders and atheists remain in place. Neither of those questions were on the table.

So it's a step in the right direction but it doesn't go far enough. This is sort of a consolation prize that the scouts hope will end the controversy and restore support.

Good luck with that.

Personally I think it's a half  measure which doesn't yet resolve the issue. Now the ball is in the court of the corporate sponsors to decide if they will restore their financial support.

We shall see what we shall see.

I can't wait to hear the reaction from the religious right. It should be extremely entertaining.
