LDS to keep on Scouting

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints appreciates the positive contributions Scouting has made over the years to thousands of its young men and boys and to thousands of other youth. As leaders of the Church, we want the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to succeed in its historic mission to instill leadership skills and high moral standards in youth of all faiths and circumstances, thereby equipping them for greater success in life and valuable service to their country."

Here is the entire news release.

On a lighter note, I was all ready to post a list of positive outcomes if BSA and LDS were to part ways.  So sad that I won't get to post:

  • BSA accident rate drops - dramatically
  • Unprepared LDS Young Men and leaders stay safely behind the chapel doors instead of venturing into the dangerous, and uncontrolled, World (see what I did there?)
  • On the rare occasions they do go outside, when they screw up by knocking over millions-of-years-old hoodoos, they don't drag the BSA's good name through the mud with them
  • No more sins of omission by failing to get trained
