  1. Scouts President: Time to End Ban on Gays

    It’s time to open up the den. Boy Scouts of America president Robert Gates said the organization should allow openly gay adult leaders for the first time in its 105-year history, giving activists hope for a more inclusive future. While Gates indicated that he’s not exactly enthused, he told the Scouts’ national meeting that ”we must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be.” The Scouts will have to change either way, he said, and he’d rather it be of their own accord.
