End of Boy Scouts' Ban on Gays Prompts Elation and Alarm

The lifting of the Boy Scouts of America's ban on gay adult leaders prompted some gay Eagle Scouts to quickly rejoin the movement on Tuesday. But the Mormon church — the nation's largest sponsor of Scout units — warned that it may split away to form a global scouting organization of its own. Across the country, scores of gay Eagle Scouts signed forms with the advocacy group Scouts for Equality, expressing interest in rejoining the Boy Scouts as volunteers.
