President Barack Obama said in a pre-Super Bowl interview that gays should be allowed in the Boy Scouts of America, CBN News reports. "The scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunities and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives," Obama told CBS' Scott Pelley. "And I think nobody should be barred for that." The statement comes after last week's announcement that the BSA may end its ban on homosexual scouts, leaders and volunteers -- a proposal expected to be discussed and possibly voted on at a board meeting in Texas this week.
