Bill Gates spoke on the gay ban in the Boy Scouts in a recent interview. According to ABC News on March 14, Gates said that the Boy Scouts should end its ban on gay members and leaders.
The comments came when he was on the interview series "Playboy Cocktails" and Gates, an ex-Boy Scout, aid that there is no reason to continue the ban because "it's 2013."
This happened one day after the Boy Scouts of America surveyed its members on their attitudes and view towards gays as they determine whether they will lift the gay ban or not. The survey included 13 questions and was distributed to the 1.4 million leaders, alumni, volunteers and parents.
Many of the questions surround the religious undertones of the Boy Scouts, such as one asking if a Boy Scout troupe should allow a gay den leader if the troupe is chartered to a church who believes homosexuality is a sin.
The Boy Scouts began to question their own ban three years ago and with former Scout Bill Gates speaking on the gay ban, they might have a solid leader in the court of thought that the ban is antiquated.
