The Boy Scouts of America have made a sudden about-face, announcing they may drop their ban on gay members. The group reaffirmed its policy excluding homosexual leaders and members last July, after taking two years to examine the issue.
Deron Smith, the director of public relations for the Boy Scouts, says the group is "discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation."
A decision on the matter will be made next week at a national board meeting.
