To add a bit more onto this BSA recently allowed gay youth to be in their programs, however, openly gay (or lesbian) adults cannot be a member/leader.
This has lead to many cries for injustice and arguments back and forth between BSA, human rights groups and the Scouts Sponsors.
The result, several of Boy Scouts Sponsors have backed out of their funding of the program, including Disney, Nike and several others.
Eventually they will realize... "Hey, these people have been in our groups for generations without being open about it, and there was not cataclysmic event, no ones been dying and such... Maybe we're over reacting and allowing the church sponsors to ruin a very important youth program." and they'll fix things.
Scouts Canada is the exact opposite in the matter, they're 100% inclusive and they're no worse for wear. Our youth have been involved in Pride for over a decade, and the newer groups and medical venturers (scouts who do first response) are involved in the events as well.
