Charity Reopens Its Door to Scouts

Charity Reopens Its Door to ScoutsUnder fire for refusing to support the Boy Scouts because of its policy against homosexuals, United Way of Ventura County has changed its guidelines to allow the youth organization to once again apply for funding from the charity.

But United Way officials said their decision this week to reverse their bias policy had nothing to do with the storm of criticism or pending legal battle that resulted from their earlier stance. They said the change was part of a general review of the organization's operating procedures and came after recent updates of United Way's bylaws and code of ethics.
