Regional Scouts council asks for ban' s repeal

From Associated Press, May 17, 2001


SUMMARY: The Madison, WI Boy Scouts Council serving Dane, Sauk, Iowa, Richland, Columbia and Adams counties has formally asked its national organization to change its policy banning homosexual leaders.

Larry Kahan, a member of the Four Lakes Council executive board, said local scouting leaders want a different policy on sexual behavior by Boy Scout leaders. This local group is seeking a policy based upon behavior with youth members rather than beliefs.

The United Way of Dane County approved in March providing $136, 240 in annual funding to the council, saying it was best to work with the organization to make it more tolerant of gays and lesbians.




Scouting For All is not an alternative scouting program.
We are an education and advocacy organization reaching out to gay and nontheist youth and adults in our effort to get the Boy Scouts of America to rescind its exlusionary policy.
