BSA Votes to Lift Ban on Gay Leaders

The Executive Committee of the Boy Scouts of America has voted to lift its ban on gay leaders and will no longer allow discrimination based upon sexual orientation for paid employees or workers at BSA owned facilities.

Local troops and councils will still have the authority to restrict gay leaders.

Another domino of ignorance and bigotry falls.

There's a ways to go yet and the war is far from over but perhaps someday we'll see the end of discrimination against those who just happen to be different.
