SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released a statement Tuesday following the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to allow transgender children into the organization, Josh Furlong with KSL News reports.

The LDS Church said in the statement that it is “studying the announcement,” but that Boy Scouts of America has informed all religious organizations that they “will be able to organize their troops in a way fully consistent with their religious beliefs.”

The church maintained that it will continue to look at the programs its youth are involved in and will continue to “look for ways to better serve its families and young people worldwide.”

    Since gender and even sex are fluid according to leftists they should go ahead and let girls in ,also, and change the name from Boy Scouts to Gender Neutral Scouts. Let’s be realistic, a “transgender boy” isn’t actually a boy it’s still technically a female. I’m so totally lost in all this–can someone explain it in a way we can all understand. If little girls want to dress like little boys and join scouts ok, but … yeah I don’t get it at all… lol

        You sure are yawning a lot lately. We all know this exhaustion is not from working, so we are very worried.

    I advise the Mormon church to get out of the Boy Scouts, it is not consistent with the teachings of the Bible.

    The Mormon church waivers on its beliefs.

    Society is crazy! If my kid said I want to be the opposite sex I’d point out girls have vaginas and boys have penises. God don’t make mistakes! Wanting to change your sex is playing god. Hmmmmm the devil is everywhere lying to people.

      Yea, they need to get out. Those mormons have $billions hoarded away they can easily make their own scouting-type program if they throw their cash towards it.
