NEW YORK — After a confidential two-year review, the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday emphatically reaffirmed its policy of excluding gays, angering critics who hoped that relentless protest campaigns might lead to change.
The Scouts cited support from parents as a key reason for keeping the policy and expressed hope that the prolonged debate over it might now subside. Bitter reactions from gay-rights activists suggested that result was unlikely.

My personal Facebook feed lit up over this with several friends threatening to either pull their boys from the program, or avoid enrolling them altogether because of this. How do you feel about it? Would you pull your child out of BSA because of this policy?
