BOY SCOUTS TO ALLOW GAYS KIDS TO JOIN

The Boy Scouts of America have a New Year's resolution. Starting 2014, they're going to allow gay boys to join. In a story I filed for 1010 WINS, Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union says it's a huge first step. But says advocates won't rest until the Scouts allow for openly gay adult leaders as well. That being said, she believes this will have a ripple effect, perhaps changing attitudes among youngsters and cutting down on bullying of gay kids. The Scouts are hopeful most churches that sponsor troops will continue their affiliation with Scouting.

More from 1010 WINS.
