SARTELL – On Tuesday the national organization of the Boy Scouts of America announced they will stand by their policy not to allow openly gay people serve in the organization as an employee, leader, or member.

It’s been a long standing policy, but an 11-member committee just finished two years reviewing it.  The local leader of the Central Minnesota Council says he’s comfortable with the decision.

Scout Executive David Trehey says he’s never had the issue come-up here.  He says it’s not a question that they ask their leaders, and it’s not a topic of conversation they have.

The statement released by the national organization says they don’t criticize or condemn “those who follow a different path”, but that homosexuality should be left to parents, spiritual advisers, and others.
