One Catholic commentator predicted that if the BSA go through with this, then the BSA would be excluded from Catholic parishes, since to sponsor a BSA unit would be to cooperate with a group that supports what is considered an immoral position.The Boy Scout of America [BSA] is considering ending its longstanding national membership restrictions based on sexual orientation.
Under the change now being discussed, the different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue — either maintaining an exclusion of gays or opening up their membership.
Do Orthodox parishes have BSA units, and would this potential change affect Orthodox-BSA relationships?
