It seems clear that this church leader's statement is a reversal of the all the previous reasoning provided by the LDS church regarding the split. I wonder a couple of things. First, I wonder why someone would make this statement when an effort to portray the opposite seems to have been the plan before now. Second, I wonder what actually changed that they think it mattered. The LDS troops around here didn't really participate with the rest of us in a way that we would have had much influence on them.
I hope that this move is good for the BSA in the long run. While I continue to believe that "morally straight" is important for scouts. I don't think it should have ever been the role of National to define what that meant. I am also glad that there are many girls getting the opportunities not provided by other US scouting organizations.
What I think about the LDS or their program doesn't matter. This is a scouting place and they have decided that their church isn't part of scouts anymore.
