Boy Scouts Leaders Stuck in the Past

Moments ago, leaders of the Boy Scouts of America sadly affirmed their ban on gay scouts and leaders after conducting a secret two-year review of the policy.  Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin released the following statement in response:

“This is a missed opportunity of colossal proportions.  With the country moving toward inclusion, the leaders of the Boy Scouts of America have instead sent a message to young people that only some of them are valued.  These adults could have taught the next generation of leaders the value of respect, yet they’ve chosen to teach division and intolerance.”

Tell the BSA to drop their misguided and hurtful policy. Send your message now.
