Boy Scout officials said Wednesday that an expected vote on gay members will be delayed until May, CNN reported. The Boy Scouts of America has a policy that bans openly gay members but said last month it would reconsider the ban. But today leaders said the issue is too complex and needs to be debated more thoroughly. The vote will now take place at the group's annual convention in May. "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," read a statement from the group's board. - GateHouse News Service ***** Below watch video coverage of the news.
