Mormon church

The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints said that this previous Tuesday they had ended all ties with the Boy Scouts of America, ending a century old tradition deeply ingrained in the religious life of Mormon boys. The change will affect hundreds of thousands of Mormon boys in some 30,500 congregations worldwide. For over 100 years, the relationship between the Boy Scouts and the Mormon Church has been important to both groups. Any boy who is part of a Mormon congregation automatically becomes part of the Boy Scouts.
