Come on now!
After the Boy Scouts of America got us excited with news that they may lift the ban on gays, they're now stating that they need more time to come to a decision.
The vote on whether or not to release the ban on gay memberships is being delayed until May, and to try to smooth things over, the scouts said:
"After careful consideration and extensive dialogue within the scouting family, along with comments from those outside the organization, the volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board concluded that due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy."
With that said, the board will still handle this matter in the best way possible by meeting up with other scouting representatives to make sure everything is right for the May conference in Grapevine, Texas.
Unfortunately, no more deets about the board's discussion were released, but considering that there's 70 members on the committee, we're not gonna be surprised if some info sneaks out, which is what we're hoping for.
They just need to come to a verdict already!! Sheesh!!
