A Redlands Cub Scout pack says it would defy a Boy Scouts of America policy against openly gay members and volunteers if a gay or lesbian person seeks to join.
At a special meeting Thursday, Aug. 23, parents of Redlands Pack 24 overwhelmingly said they opposed the scouts’ ban, pack Cubmaster James Rich said.
“Pack 24 is open to all boys and all families,” Rich said.
Cub Scouts are for boys in first through fifth grades.
The pack’s move is the latest chapter in a years-long controversy over scouting’s exclusion of gays and lesbians.
