Boy Scouts Changing Policy on Gay Members

You think they made the announcement today for any particular reason? The Boy Scouts have recommended ending their policy on barring gay members from joining up. Until they turn 18, that is. Because all adult troop leaders or volunteers would still subject to the old policy. Baby steps, I guess. The proposal must now be approved by the Board of the Boy Scouts of America. [Mother Jones]
