Kentucky Boy Scouts Leader Hopes No Harm Comes from Decision on Gay Members

Mar 1, 2013

The new executive director and CEO of the Blue Grass Council of the Boy Scouts of America is calling the controversy surrounding the impending decision on whether to allow gay members a “tipping point.”

The BSA recently postponed making a final ruling until May. James “Chip” Armishaw says that while he doesn’t have any personal opinions on the issue, he’s confident that when the time comes, the right decision will be made.

“Hopefully God will guide us to make the right decision for the organization, what he wants us to be. And we’ll see,” he said.

Armishaw is hoping that no matter how the question is resolved, there will be no long-term harm to the organization.
