Boy Scouts Cut Age Limit to 18 in Move That Will Impact Gays (exclusive)

I learned from some Scouting sources that the Boy Scouts had changed the age of who are considered adults and youths in their programs earlier this year. It had dropped from 21 to 18. This was significant because the BSA bans gay adults but not youth from participating in their programs so a change in who qualifies as an adult or a youth could impact membership of gays. I obtained the BSA resolution from February and the organization confirmed the change was coming next year. Read more (plus reaction) here.
