“The lds was the gateway for the new policy. Look it up.”
It was the leadership of the BSA that approved the new policy. I talked to some scout leaders yesterday and they all said that no boy may practice homosexuality - or heterosexuality - while participating in scout activities. They are to remain “morally straight” at all times. I am glad that folks are leaving the BSA in a huff. The LDS Church will continue to accept all boys and lead them in the ways of righteousness and good citizenship.

Until an “openly” fag boy joins and talks about fagdom, etc and can’t get kicked out. The homo agenda pushers are waiting in the wings with laywers lined up already.
And of course their next step is Fag Boy Scout Leaders, they’re already complaining about htat.
I am catching a whiff of ozone in the air.
4/19/2013 - The BSAs National Executive Committee (~23 voting members) unanimously approved and released its membership standards resolution, which proposed removing the restriction denying membership to youth on the basis of sexual orientation alone and maintaining the current membership policy for all adult leaders of the BSA.
Key Findings - excerpts
Attitudes and opinions among Americans related to gay and lesbian relationships have changed rapidly over the past 3 years.
Four experts were consistent in their findings and recommendations
David Finkelhor, Ph.D.
W. Walter Menninger, M.D., psychiatry
Charol Shakeshaft, Ph.D.
Victor Vieth, J.D.
The nearly universal opinion among sexual abuse authorities is that same-sex sexual interest or same-sex sexual experience, either in adults or youth, is NOT a risk factor for sexually abusing children.
In regard to role modeling: Most of the research on the effect on children of associating with self-identified homosexual adults has been done about homosexual parents. The clear conclusion from this research is that there appear to be no effects on childrens adjustment, mental health or sexual orientation.
These statements are breathtakingly duplicitous and will be a stain on the reputation of the BSA because of the 23 members of the BSA National Executive Committee who engineered this change. The ~ 30 year scandal within the Roman Catholic Church of homosexual priests preying on adolescent males is the proof of this Goebbels-sized big lie.

A great deal of information has been posted on FR since 5/23/2013 on the topic of the LDS Church's role in the membership change. Just do a keyword search with "Boy Scouts" and read the posts since 5/23. Of course, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.
