Sorry but my understanding is the Mormon church is behind the new emphasis.

Is that not the case?

My understanding is, they are the driving force behind this new policy?

That is absolutely correct. LDS did let it happen. They were in agreement to letting openly homosexual boys join the boy scouts.

Not that I know of. The question was put like this: Shall we exclude some boys from partaking of the Blessings of BSA activities? How would it be acceptable to tell a young boy that he is not welcome in the Boy Scouts. All boys should be welcome. The motto of “morally straight” is one that will continue to be in effect and the LDS-led troops will not fail. Meanwhile, gay scout leaders are not acceptable because they are ADULTS who are charged with awesome responsibilities to maintain the upright tenets of the BSA.

The mormons operate self contained boy scout troops ~ and they all go to the same summer camps at the same time ~ so they don't have to interact with Boy Scouting outside of their little world.

They literally have no reason to leave plus there's one half billion in assets that will fall into their hands to control just as soon as they get rid of all the gentiles!

Yep, they voted in favor. Catholics, Methodists and Baptists against.
