The Boy Scouts of America sent a survey to former Scouts and in particular to Eagle Scouts, of which I am thankful and proud to be one, albeit a 74-year-old one.
As I understand the current proposal, it is to permit gay boys to be Scouts and homosexual men and women to be Scout leaders in troops that choose to permit them, while permitting sponsoring organizations (churches, mostly) to deny such admission into their own sponsored troops on religious or moral grounds.
The gay revolution is the most significant swing in American opinion about social mores I have experienced since the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s.
