After its historic vote to grant membership to openly gay youth, leaders of Boy Scouts of America are anxious to "move forward" as a unified Scouting family, even as an unknown number of chartering organizations, councils, troops and members reassess their participation in the iconic institution.
A searchable online file of hundreds of men who volunteered decades ago as Scout leaders and were suspected of sexual abuse was posted Thursday by an Oregon law firm.
It also reflects Scouting members' strong support that the BSA "serve every kid," he said.
The policy reaffirms Scouts' "duty to God," as well as the organization's core virtues and values, said BSA National President Wayne Perry.
