Boy Scouts Lose Leading Sponsor Amidst Name Change Controversy

Boy Scouts and Mormon Church [1]After the Boy Scouts of America (soon-to-be Scouts BSA) decided to change their name to accommodate the admission of girls into their higher ranks starting next year, backlash from sponsors was inevitable. But it’s doubtful they knew such a decision would cost them 425,000 scouts (approximately 18.5% of their total enrollment) from the Mormon Church, the organization’s leading sponsor over the past century.

Last week, Bill Heid penned an article entitled “Boy Scouts Self-Castration Leaves Girl Scouts Wondering [2]” and invited any readers who felt passionately about the topic (whether in favor or against) to join him on a podcast to discuss the issue. You can listen to the results of that invitation via the link below.
