  Original Published: 5/23/2013  The Boy Scouts of America may change its stance on gay members Thursday.   Some 1,400 members of the national council are expected to vote on whether to end the group's ban on gay youths.   The group is meeting in Texas.   And the outcome will follow months of intense debate among interest groups and within the ranks of scouting itself.   It comes down to a single sentence at the end of a resolution.   It reads: "No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone."   If the policy change is approved, the Boy Scouts of America will maintain its ban on openly gay adult leaders.
