BSA ends ban on leaders who happen to be LGBT
Troop 407 and our sponsoring organization, the Claremont United Church of Christ, applaud the decision of the governing board of the Boy Scouts of America to remove discriminatory language from the membership standards portion of their bylaws. The effect of these changes is to allow sponsoring organizations to select leaders for their scout units according to their mission and values (as has always been the intended relationship between sponsoring organizations and units). The changes also disallow discrimination in employment by any non-sponsored scouting entity such as a council office or camp. Troop 407 always has been and always will be fully inclusive, but now we are no longer practicing civil disobedience to be so.
