Npr Story On Bsa/lds Relationship

Recommended Posts

In 1987, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled in favor of the BSA (Quinnipac Council), that the BSA had a right to reject applications for Scoutmaster from women.  In 1988, the BSA abolished the gender requirement.

The religious groups and folks are being pushed to the side in the name of progress. Let progress move forward. I realize what National thinks of

religious COs and folks. I will move on. The BSA has ticked off the LDS, by accident? I don't think so.
