Scouting leaders to vote on lifting ban on openly gay Boy Scouts at 3-day meeting in Texas

Mark Noel described a different situation from when he was a scoutmaster in New Hampshire. A group of Scouts came to him and asked what he would do if one of them was gay. The Scouts didnít know Noel himself was gay. ďWhat could I tell them? That Iím an ally, itís OK? Iím with you?Ē Noel said Wednesday, his voice wavering. ďThereís no way for me to even signal them that itís OK, that I am not going to be conditional about applying the Scout Oath and Law.Ē
