I believe the Charlotte Observer broke this story with their Oct. 19 article. In that article the journalist mentions Mark Turner, executive director of Mecklenburg's Boy Scouts Council. According to that journalist, Turner "said Christ Covenant is within its rights as a chartering organization to apply additional leadership qualifications, as long as it also honors those the Boy Scouts insist on."
I would say that this Church believes that its Cub Scout leaders should believe in one God. The God. That's what the Boy Scouts focus on as a key standard.
Mormons? They believe in many gods:
They believe a "heavenly father" exists named Elohim.
They believe a separate god known both as Jehovah and Jesus Christ exists.
They believe a third god exists, the Holy Ghost.
Their hymnal contains a hymn singing to a fourth god, a "mother" god who is the "wife" of Elohim.
Their writings reference a "council of gods" and Joseph Smith said the "head god" appointed Elohim for this world. (How many are in that council? Who knows)
And then they believe millions more have become gods or will become gods.
That's hardly adhering to the Solo God standard!!!
I guess I was wrong. :-)
“I would say that this Church believes that its Cub Scout leaders should believe in one God. The God. That’s what the Boy Scouts focus on as a key standard.”
From the article:
For Sylvia, that at least means that Scout leaders must believe in the Apostles’ Creed - a profession of faith dating back to the early centuries of Christianity.
Stelle Snyder, the spokeswoman for Christ Covenant, said it could even extend beyond that. A decade ago, she said, the church had to say no to a Catholic dad who wanted to coach one of the church’s sports teams. Catholics, she said, often stress good works as the road to salvation more than many Protestants, who emphasize grace. And she said it’s part of the role of coaches in her church’s sports outreach program to share Bible stories.
So it’s not just based on one’s understanding of the Christian God/creed. No Catholics Christians or Lds, which is fine. A church has a right to choose who they want to be leading their youth I reckon.
