Boy Scouts and LGBT?

By Michael Schaffer - Managing editor
Daily Iowegian

CENTERVILLE — The Daily Iowegian will publish an Editorial Question of the Week on the Opinion page.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the Boy Scouts of America and a statement they released that said they are rethinking the national policy regarding sexual orientation. Now many are saying this will lead to openly gay and lesbian scouts and scout leaders.

So, the question this week is, "Should the Boy Scouts of America abandon the sexual orientation policy and allow gay and lesbian scouts and scout leaders?"

Go to the Daily Iowegian website,, and scroll down the home page to POLL on the right hand side and cast your vote. Or call the Iowegian office at (641) 856-6336 or email the editor at to cast a vote.
