The Church announced today that it’s pulling out of scouts for all the 14 and older boys. So no more Eagle Scout projects. Overall I think that a positive thing. Trying to do both young men [i]and[/i] scouts is pretty hard. Plus my son admittedly doesn’t like scouts too much. I have to drag him to scouts every week. (He’s 12 so this doesn’t affect him yet)
Those already working towards Eagle Scout can continue. The change doesn’t take effect until January.
According to the Church the pull out had nothing to do with LGBT issues the BSA has been dealing with.
Thoughts? Do you see this as a good thing or a bad thing? Might this be a sign of a broader pullout to come?
