Church statement on the BSA

If you haven't yet, head on over to the Church website to read the official statement made this week about the BSA.

Does that sound to you like they are saying the Church has plans to stay with the BSA, regardless of how the vote turns out?

It would be nice if that were enough to turn the doubt of those who have only been half-way been doing a job, due to the conviction the relationship was only temporary. However, deep down, I know those same people will merely find other excuses for treating Scouting as something less than a “real” Church program.

(If I sound a little bitter, it is because I had a bitter conversation with someone in our ward last week. In actuality, I am very excited by the statement.)
