Boy Scouts: Every Child Deserves Chance To Experience Scouting

The Boy Scouts of America says its aiming for a smooth transition as it gets ready to allow openly gay members.  The highly-controversial policy change was approved last May and takes effect on January 1st.  Boy Scouts of America spokesman Deron Smith said in a statement that under the new policy, "no youth may be denied membership in the BSA on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone."  Smith says the new policy "allows kids who sincerely want to be a part of Scouting to experience this life-changing program while remaining true to the long-standing virtues of the Boy Scouts of America."  Smith says the organization is prepared to implement the new policy with no major changes to the delivery of the Scouting program.
