The LDS Church's Future Relationship with the BSA



Cross timber Scouters,
I normally do not take time to comment on posts. This one happened to stick out and just wanted to add my 2 cents.. 

Before I was in Scouting I knew nothing, and no one that has part of the LDS church.. (at least I did not know and never discussed it.)

Because of day camps and other activities, I have had the pleasure to get to know many members of the church and even feel I have a few friends in the faith. Many of the members have made huge impacts on my life and many boys live's in district and beyond. 

I am very saddened by this announcement, and wish them well.  

Robert Bake
