Yesterday, popular TV talk show host and psychologist Phil McGraw, best-known as Dr. Phil, voiced his support for allowing gays into the Boy Scouts. Dr. Phil via Twitter and Facebook posted support for removing the ban on gay scouts and support for GLAAD’s campaign.

“Let’s give ALL boys the chance to become a Scout,” Dr. Phil wrote on Facebook:
Discriminating against young men and families simply because of who they are is wrong. The Boy Scouts should be an example of inclusiveness. As a former Cub Scout, I don’t want any child to miss the opportunity. http://www.glaad.org/scouts
Tomorrow, 1400 delegates from the Boy Scouts of America National Council will decide if they want to change the rules banning gay boys from scouting. Gay adults, regardless of the results of the vote, will still be banned from the century-old organization.
