The Boy Scouts of America is standing firm this morning on its policy banning gays as adult leaders...for now.
At a national meeting last week in Orlando, Scouts leadership was presented with a petition with over 275,000 signatures, demanding the group end its exclusive policy against homosexuals. A spokesperson for Boy Scouts of America says the resolution will be reviewed at next year's national meeting, but for the time being any change to the policy is unlikely.
The petition also calls for the reinstatement of Jennifer Tyrrell, a former Ohio den leader who was ousted last month – a move the scouts say was because of her sexual orientation.
Jennifer Tyrell, who started the petition on Change.org, talks with Soledad about her fight to get the Boy Scouts of America to change their policy.
