There has been no change in a controversial policy at Irving-based Boy Scouts of America.
The group just wrapped up a two-year review of its ban on gays and lesbians. Tuesday night, the Scouts solidly re-affirmed the policy. They cited strong support from parents.
An 11-person committee, made up of professional Scout executives and volunteers, reviewed the policy, which applies to both adult leaders and scouts.
Jennifer Tyrrell joined News 8 Daybreak with her seven-year-old son Cruz Burns. Tyrrell, a former Boy Scout leader and lesbian, is an Ohio mom. She removed her son from scouting.
Tyrrell, along with her son, said she will deliver a petition demanding change with 300,000 signatures to the Boy Scouts headquarters in Irving.
Cynthia Izaguirre talks with Tyrrell.
