ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Boy Scout supporters in St. Louis joined others across the country to rally against a resolution to allow gay members take part in the organization. The national group OnMyHonor.Net organized the rally outside the greater St. Louis area council office in the Central West End this afternoon. They want the national council to vote against changing the organization’s long standing policy banning gay youth members.

Next week, delegates will attend a national meeting to vote on whether they should lift the ban. The resolution does not affect the policy banning gay adult members.
