LDS Church Endorses Boy Scout Compromise on Gay Scouts

In case you missed the SL Tribune article and the Mormon News Room's announcement, here is some wonderful news  (this is quoted from The Salt Lake Tribune, 4/26/2013):


"The compromise proposal from the Boy Scouts of America to allow gay youths to join local troops — while continuing to exclude gay leaders — has picked up a powerful backer: the LDS Church.
The Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the nation’s largest Scouting sponsor, announced late Thursday that it is "satisfied" with the BSA’s plan."

Woo-hoo!

Wow, that's really surprising to me! I didn't think that they would make that concession. I honestly think that the BSA would go with whatever the Church was wanting them to, considering the church is one of their biggest backers, if not THE biggest. It's definitely a step in the right direction!
