DALLAS (Reuters) - The Boy Scouts of America Executive Committee on Monday unanimously approved allowing gay adults to serve as employees, a major step toward dismantling a policy that has caused deep rifts in the 105-year-old organization.

The group's National Executive Board will meet to ratify this resolution on Monday, July 27, the Boy Scouts said in a statement.
