Boy Scouts of America: Reinstate Cub Scout leader who was removed for being gayPressure is ramping up on the Boy Scouts of America to allow openly gay scouts and adult leaders to participate in the organization.

“Today, I’m helping deliver more than 1.4 million Change.org petition signatures to the Boy Scouts of America, urging the national board to end the ban on gay youth and parents and give me the opportunity to once again serve my son’s Cub Scout Pack," Jennifer Tyrrell said via a prepared statement released to media.
