When I say the Church is true, as so many Latter-day Saints affirm, what do I mean? I mean that 1) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the ONLY church currently upon the earth that has the priesthood and authority of Jesus Christ. And 2) It is the ONLY church that is led by a prophet chosen by Jesus Christ through revelation. And 3) It is the ONLY church that enjoys continuing modern revelation.
Keeping this in mind, I have decided to support the Brethren in their decision about the policies of the Boy Scouts of America regarding same sex attracted boys in scouting. It is my understanding that only boys who are living the Law of Chastity will be permitted to participate in Church sponsored boy scout troops. How effectively the policy will be carried out remains to be seen. The so-called gay rights movement is hailing this as a great victory. They are virtually dancing in the streets. That puzzles me. If the Brethren are able to enforce this policy as it has been explained, it will not be a victory for the wicked even though it may appear to be one. We must all avoid letting this change in policy weaken our determination to be chaste and to teach chastity to our young men. I pray that will be so.
