The Boy Scouts of America made national headlines a few weeks ago when it decided to allow openly homosexual youth into its membership ranks beginning January 2014. The implications of this decision are far reaching, especially for the church. Many churches, including my own, sponsor scout troops. Both my husband and son participated in the troop and enjoyed the many benefits that scouting provided. However, with this new development, what should the church do? What should you do if you have sons in scouting?
As your church and family ponder these very serious questions, you may be helped by reading these thoughtful articles:
