It's about time!!
Earlier this year, the Boy Scouts of America FINALLY lifted their ban on accepting openly gay members, and it officially goes into effect on January 1st, 2014. AKA, tomorrow!!
The highly anticipated move has been met with some resistance from a few churches, but BSA national executive board member Brad Haddock is confident they'll be able to find support elsewhere:

Chuck Norris, an out and proud conservative, is up in arms about the possibility of the Boy Scouts of America allowing openly gay scoutmasters.

Chuck Norris has joined in on the public debate over whether or not the Boy Scouts of America should allow openly gay scoutmasters.
In an opinion piece that hit the world wide web this week, the action star criticized BSA National Board Member James Turley and Barack Obama for supporting the LGBT community on the issue. He even went as far as to suggest that there is some kind of government conspiracy working against a "century-old policy to ban gays from leadership."
Whatever conspiracy there may be, it isn't a very secret one. After Cub Scout leader Jennifer Tyrell was fired because of her sexual orientation, nearly 300,000 people have a signed a petition to reinstate her.
In response to Chuck's support of continued inequality, the angry mom had this to say:
