The Boy Scouts of America will allow openly gay scouts into the organization for the first time, starting Wednesday.
The national council voted in May 2013 to lift the ban.
The historic change will not deny a boy membership based only on sexual orientation or preference.
However, the organization is still maintaining its ban on gay adult leaders.
The controversial decision led some members to form a new organization called Life Trail USA.
It is nearly identical to Boy Scouts, except it bans openly gay members.

In an effort to woo a demographic the White House considers key to the success of Obamacare, a campaign called Out2Enroll has produced a video commercial that will test the sensibilities of many Americans who might otherwise be tolerant of the homosexual-rights movement. While the Christmas-themed ad sponsored by major left-wing groups may be “gay” in every sense of the word, its aim is serious, as the White House is aware that a disproportionate number of homosexual Americans are uninsured and qualify for premium subsidies under Obamacare. Out2Enroll launched Sept. 12 with a Washington-issued statement and a briefing at the White House that featured remarks from senior presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and various LGBT health experts from around the country More
But supporters of a bill that would recognize same-sex marriage in New Jersey are proving otherwise.
The bill, which was on track to pass the Legislature, was pulled from consideration by Democratic Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, acting on a request from Lambda Legal and other homosexual rights groups.
“They don’t want any kind of religious exemption, so out of respect for that, I will [pull the bill],” Weinberg said.
The problem with the bill in its current form, according to Lambda Legal and other homosexual activist groups, is that it allows exemptions for Christians and people of faith from any other religion or denomination to decline to participate in any way with gay marriage.
The supporters of homosexual marriage, however, are demanding that the state prosecute anyone who doesn’t share their leftist views under anti-discrimination and public-accommodation laws.
It wouldn’t be the first time Christians have been persecuted under color of law for their beliefs about the immorality of homosexual marriage. The ongoing case of Craig v. Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado is just one recent example. Bakery owner Jack Phillips could face jail after being ordered by the court to bake a “wedding” cake for a homosexual couple.
In the case of Elane Photography v. Willock, which has been appealed to the Supreme Court, a wedding photographer was fined for not participating in a homosexual ceremony.
There have been plenty of other instances where Christians have been punished or harassed for refusing to go along with the redefining of marriage.
Usually, homosexual activists at least make a pretense of respecting other beliefs, but evidently in New Jersey they feel that total victory is near so the gloves have come off. The fact that Republican Gov. Chris Christie has not spoken against the bill in the Senate is particularly troubling.
This issue won’t go away. The efforts of many homosexual activists have always been aimed not at equality but at destroying those faiths that view homosexuality as sin. It’s as if they have a deep-seated psychological need to be seen as “normal,” but knowing that they are not among the norm (less than 3 percent of the population), they instead work to obliterate all moral norms and those who hold to them.
This brewing war over religion will involve millions of Americans who believe the Bible and others. New Jersey should consider carefully what it is about to do.

“Duck Dynasty” dad Phil Robertson has been suspended indefinitely by the A&E Network following his recent comments on homosexuality, the network announced Wednesday night.
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series ‘Duck Dynasty’,” the network said in a statement.
“His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
Earlier Wednesday, Roberston had responded to critics who had slammed him for very graphic statements he made about his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex.
“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior,” he said in a statement sent to FOX411.
“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.
“However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”
We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity
– Phil Robertson
In a wide-ranging interview with GQ, Robertson didn’t hold back when sharing his thoughts about homosexuality and sinning.
“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong… Sin becomes fine,” he said. “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
