President Obama Advocates For Ending The Boy Scouts' Gay Ban

President Obama: Boy Scouts should end gay ban
More words from the bully pulpit!  And, yes, the President's words really do affect public opinion!  Thank you, Mr. President!

Via NBC News:

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Sunday encouraged the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay members and leaders, days before the group is expected to vote on the controversial and long-standing rule. In an interview with CBS, anchor Scott Pelley asked the president if he believed scouting should be open to gays. "Yes," Obama said simply. Asked to elaborate, Obama – who last year said he supports the right of same-sex couples to marry – said gays and lesbians should be able to participate in "every institution" that others can. "My attitude is ... that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does, in every institution and walk of life," he said.
