LDS Church satisfied with Scouting membership compromise
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement Thursday indicating it is satisfied with the Boy Scouts of America's proposed policy compromise on membership and leadership. Ref. Source 9
Satisfied? I am not and I will not be until gay leaders are allowed to be part of the Boy Scouts of America, it is simply discriminatory and [it] needs to be addressed and changed.
I am not satisfied either but I think it's a good step and hopefully it will help to bring equality and get rid of discriminatory conditions.
I'm glad the BSA decided to let openly gay boys join the organization. I don't understand why some members of the Church are so upset over this. The so called conservatives are furious and they don't understand that the decision of the BSA is in line with Church teachings.
