Boy Scouts President: Ban on Gay Scout Leaders an 'Unsustainable Position'

Boy Scouts of America president Robert Gates has called for an end to the organization’s ban on gay scout leaders, saying to continue to prohibit gay adult from serving “will be the end of us as a national movement”.
Citing the social, political and judicial changes in the country in regard to LGBT rights, Gates said that the group should change its policy before it is forced to by the court system.
Speaking at the Boy Scouts national business meeting in Atlanta, Gates, the former US secretary of defense, acknowledged he had originally opposed reviewing the issue during his two-year term as BSA president.
