Members of Scouts for Equality hold a rally to call for inclusion for gays in the Boy Scouts of America, in Washington, DC on May 22, 2013The Boy Scouts of America officially ended its decades-old ban on gay troop leaders Monday, a historic but controversial shift after years of legal wrangling and internal strife. Despite removing the national ban on gay adults in scouting, the BSA will still allow individual chapters to continue to bar gay adults from being Scout leaders or employees if hiring them would violate the unit's religious beliefs. "This change allows Scouting's members and parents to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families," the BSA said on its website.

FILE - In this Feb. 5, 2015, file photo, people hold up placards against the Olympic Games coming to Boston, during the first public forum regarding the city's 2024 Olympic bid, in Boston. Boston's mayor delivered a harsh blow to the city's effort to host the 2024 Olympics on Monday, July 27, 2015, when he declared he wouldn't sign any document "that puts one dollar of taxpayer money on the line for one penny of overruns on the Olympics." That document is the host city contract that most in the Olympics consider crucial to any city's success. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File)Boston's bid to host the 2024 Olympics was undercut by its own mayor, its skeptical public and, finally, leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee, who were tired of the city's ever-changing blueprint.
