Obama: Scouting should be open to gays, lesbians

AP: In a pre-Super Bowl interview on CBS, US President Barack Obama said the Boy Scouts of America should open its membership to gays and lesbians when its national executive board discusses the issue this week.


During the interview, Obama praised the scouts as a “great institution” that provides young people with lifelong leadership training and opportunities. He said “no one should be barred from that.”
