My sons have lost interest in scouts over the last few years so it wont be any big deal not attending anymore. If it cant support the morally straight against the gay rights agenda than it isnt worth supporting anymore. They can just do YM and not have to cave thier morals to appease the society today. The Gay rights groups wont stop until they have gay leaders too. What i want to know is what are they gonna do when an actual girl wants to scout. Guess they cant exactly tell them no either.

Help me understand! In the last LDS conference the church was about, the world was changing and we need to be more aware of our surroundings and choices. According to the LDS church, they just took the easy way out, definitely not the road less traveled. The church is better than that. I would hope the LDS church would reconsider the choice of words and put out a better explanation. If a Gay person told his Bishop they were gay, they would be excommunicated.

Many seem to misunderstand what really happened in this vote. The LGBT community seem to believe that actively gay boys of scouting age will now be admitted to membership in the NBSA. The LDS community holds the position that young men of scouting age can participate if they subscribe to moral behavior, meaning that the young man is not sexually active in any heterosexual or any homosexual relationships.

There is a big difference between those who openly identify themselves as "gay," and those who live life dealing circumspectly with same sex attraction. One is in a state of rebellion, and the other must deal with temptation. Don't we all?
