    • What an individual unit does is within the control of the CO.  COs that prefer specific program operations will ultimately drop the unit if it is inconsistent with their fundamental values.  It s a "bottom up" practice none of us disagree with -- and has been a fundamental part of our business model since our beginning.  My comment is centered on no longer using the national organization to force particular religious or political views from the "top down".  It is a relief for many Scouters to no longer be in the middle of that.

    • That's right, and since neither the LDS Church nor any of its subdivisions will be CO for any BSA units, I can't see a situation where the CO would impose "LDS values."  Well actually, I can see one, but to my understanding it is discouraged by the BSA.  That is to have the CO be "Friends of Troop 123, Inc."  If the majority of the directors or trustees of the corporation happen to be members of LDS, acting in their individual capacities and not as part of the church, then yes, I suppose they could say the unit will follow "LDS values."  What's interesting is that the unit is not chartered to a religious organization (even though everyone involved in the CO may be of the same religion), and therefore it would not be able to follow "local option" on a certain membership issue.
