Idaho Church Ending its Boy Scout Charter after Decision on Gay Members

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho church has decided to end its charter of a Boy Scout Troop because of the national organization’s recent decision to lift its ban on openly gay youth.

The Spokesman-Review reports that Candlelight Christian Fellowship of Coeur d’Alene released a statement from Associate Pastor Buck Storm that says the church “obviously can’t link arms with the Scouts on this path they’ve chosen to follow.” The church said the families of Troop 291′s members agree with its stand.

A pastor at Coeur d’Alene Bible Church said last week that leaders of Troop 211 are leaning toward not renewing their charter. Kootenai County Sheriff Ben Wolfinger has said he is considering dropping his agency’s charter of Troop 911 for similar reasons.
