Obama Encourages Boy Scouts To Accept Gays

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Sunday encouraged the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay members and leaders, days before the group is expected to vote on the controversial and long-standing rule.
In an interview with CBS, anchor Scott Pelley asked the president if he believed scouting should be open to gays.

If the Boy Scouts change their rules, I will remove my son from the Cub Scouts. I believe the government and President Obama should stay out of private matters. Our President needs to worry about jobs, the bad economy and lowering the deficit. I would actually rather the President pay attention to his golf game and his vacations than sticking his opinion into the Boy Scouts.
