(CNN) – The Boy Scouts of America announced Tuesday it has affirmed its policy of “not granting membership to open or avowed homosexuals.”
The organization’s leaders reached that decision after a nearly two-year evaluation and will take no further action on a resolution that has sought a change in policy, it said in a news release. It had said last month that it would consider a resolution asking that local units be allowed to determine their own standards.
BSA’s chief scout executive and national president had convoked a committee of volunteers and professional leaders to evaluate the policy.
This morning on “Starting Point,” advocate and author of “My Two Moms” Zach Wahls tells Soledad that though the group has agreed to let the policy stand, he thinks change will be coming soon.
