Boy Scouts Delay Decision on Gays

Always be prepared … to delay? The Boy Scouts of America said on Wednesday that the organization is postponing making a decision on whether to admit gay members and Scout masters. They will take up the decision at their national convention in May for the organization’s 1,400 voting members to decide on. The executive board had announced last week it would discuss the organization’s controversial ban on admitting gays, an about-face from statements made only seven months ago. If the organization keeps the ban, it will go against two high-profile board members, Ernst & Young CEO James Turley, and AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson. President Obama has also called for the Scouts to drop the ban.
