THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — While there has been no official word from the Boy Scouts of America, NBC’s sources say a vote is scheduled soon within the organization and it is likely to pass. There is no information on whether or not this includes transgender scouts or volunteers.
If this is true, it would be a dramatic about-face for the organization which merely six months ago reaffirmed their long time ban on gay and transgender scouts. Since that reaffirmation, UPS, the Merck Foundation and Intel dropped their funding of the Boy Scouts. In addition, the courts ordered the scouts to release their “perversion files” — a 20-year record of suspected child molesters from within the BSA not shown to anyone outside the organization.
I wrote about both of these recent developments here: http://lexiecannes.wordpress.com/?s=boy+scouts
I will post updated news links in the comments section while we’re waiting for the official word.
