Luter: Scouts Possible Gay Ban Change Disappointing

Ad Feedback

The Boy Scouts of America may lift its ban on gay and lesbian troop leaders but the news is not sitting well with many religious groups.

Six months ago, after a two-year review, the Boy Scouts national organization reaffirmed its policy on banning homosexual Scout leaders.

The decision to reconsider its position came after increased pressure from some local troops and corporations.

"If that is what the leadership is doing, then I think it will be a sad day in the life of the Boy Scouts of America," Fred Luter, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, said.

"To now see this organization that I thought stood on biblical principles about to give in to the politically correct thing is very disappointing," he said.

A decision from the Boy Scouts is expected in early February.
