Changing the Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America delayed a vote this morning on whether it should change its policy excluding gay scouts and leaders. The move would give troops control over who they welcome into their ranks and people in Utah are paying close attention. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the largest Scouting youth membership of any organization. Wednesday, we're asking people on both sides of the controversy what a policy change would mean for the organization and for its members.
