Hooray for the local scout leaders who are pushing to change the BSA's antiquated and misguided membership policies.

Do local Boy Scout groups obey the bigotry policy? Or do they openly ignore it?

BSA National charters the local Pacific Skyline Council. The Council claims that it "interprets" the policy against "open and avowed homosexuals" such that it is "don't ask don't tell" but it also admits that if National instructed it to expel a scout for being "open and avowed" it would do so. Pacific Skyline should reject this bigoted policy and pass a resolution like Mt. Diablo Council did to urge national to repeal the ban. Visit Scouts for Equality to learn more: Web Link
