Trending In Our News Feeds – Boy Scouts to vote on gay ban. The Boy Scouts of America are set to vote on a proposal to end the organization’s ban on gays at its three-day Annual Meeting. The proposal in front of the 1,400-member National Council would allow gay youth to become Scouts, but would prevent gay scouts from filling leadership roles. While a Boy Scouts survey says 61% of those affiliated with the Scouts support the current ban on gays, a Washington Post-ABC News poll said 63% of respondents wanted to allow gay youth in the Scouts. The Council will vote tomorrow.
