Boy Scouts Delay Gay Policy Decision

The Boy Scouts were suppose to make a decision on lifting the gay ban in the organization today. But that kind of fell through. The organization decided to halt the discussion for now and wait until the organization's national meeting in May.

The BSA Director Deron Smith said:
"After careful consideration and extensive dialogue within the Scouting family, along with comments from those outside the organization, the volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board concluded that due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy."

Smith said the organization's national executive board will prepare a resolution for the 1,400 voting members of the national council to consider. The annual meeting will take place in May, 2013, in Grapevine, Texas. 
I hope they are not talking to any hate groups or anti-gay donors about this? They will so much and they will be on the right side of history if they change their ancient policy. If the NAACP can change their views, so can they.
