On Monday morning, the Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg joined Carol Costello on CNN to discuss the Boy Scouts possibly ending their ban on gays. Sprigg argued against lifting the ban, leading Costello to challenge his views. Sprigg encouraged the Boy Scouts to stand by their “timeless” principles, adding that it would be a “grave mistake” for them to abandon them. Costello noted that football players are coming out and supporting gay rights.
