NASHVILLE (BP)—Southern Baptist leaders Frank Page and Richard Land have written letters expressing strong opposition to a proposal that would leave in place the prohibition on homosexual Scout leaders but would allow youth who identify as gay to join.
Boy Scouts delegates will consider the proposal at their national meeting Friday, May 24. The letters were released the same week that Boy Scout troops across America rallied Friday (May 17) against the proposal. The rallies were sponsored by OnMyHonor.net, a coalition of concerned parents, Scout Leaders, donors, Eagle Scouts and others who oppose the proposal.
