"I support the meaningful work of the Boy Scouts in preparing young people for adventure, leadership, learning and service, however the membership policy is not one I would personally endorse. As I have done in leading Ernst & Young to being a most inclusive organization, I intend to continue to work from within the BSA Board to actively encourage dialogue and sustainable progress."

-- James Turley, Global Chairman & CEO of Ernst & Young and a Board member of the Boy Scouts of America, announcing his support for removing the BSA's ban on gay scout leaders and members.
