It’ll be another three months before we know if the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America will change its gay ban policy. More than 100 supporters of the policy rallied at Scout headquarters after the organization said it would keep its gay ban, for now.
Boy Scouts of America leaders are weighing the possibility of lifting its ban on homosexual members and leaders, but a nation-wide policy could do little to nothing to effect change at local clubs throughout the country.
A statement by the organization said chartered clubs would accept membership and select leaders based on its mission, principles, or religious beliefs.
