CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Officials with Boy Scouts of America in Wyoming aren’t commenting on the organization’s vote to end a ban on gay youths while still excluding gay adults.

Parents of Wyoming Boy Scouts have mixed reactions.

Bern Haggerty, of Laramie, says he gave up Scouting in 1991 after the Boy Scouts banned gay boys and adults. His son is working toward becoming an Eagle Scout.

Haggerty tells the Associated Press he’s disappointed gay adults remain barred after Thursday’s decision.

Heather Garner, the mother of two Scouts in Casper, says she is proud to be involved in the organization after the vote.

The executive director of the Central Wyoming Council, Matt Myers, declined to comment on the decision or to identify the Wyoming Boy Scout representatives who took part in the vote.
