CNN reported late this afternoon the Boy Scouts of America has voted to lift ban on gay members. The ban does not extend to gay leaders.
CNN also said people of the LDS faith make up 40% of the scouting organization. While they (BSA) said they’re expecting to see a sharp decline in donations and membership roles they’re confident these will pick back up after some time passes by.
It makes me wonder…is this a sign of what’s to come in the Mormon Church? Hmmm…time will tell, but with their announcement earlier this year of reaching out to the gay community within the Church it makes it interesting.
