Boy Scouts set to end gay ban for youth, not adults

The Boy Scouts of America are calling for an end to their ban on homosexual members, while maintaining the ban for adult leaders.

The organization is proposing a resolution stating that "no youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone." The change still must be approved by the group's roughly 1,400 national council members at a meeting the week of May 20.
