As the president of the Boys Scouts of America (BSA) Wayne Perry wrote in an op-ed this morning, "At the BSA's National Annual Meeting today, the 1,400 voting members of our National Council will vote on a proposed resolution that would end the restriction on gay youth membership. That's the right decision for Boy Scouts."

Vote they did, in Grapevine, Texas. Before today, the group's policy was,"We do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals," but that is no longer. The resolution passed with 60 percent approval.

YAY!

How exactly would they determine whether a scout was gay or not?

Scouts self report.
