Church ousts Boy Scouts over inclusive policy

Boy Scouts in Appleton will have to find a new location for weekly meetings and other events.Boy Scouts in Appleton will have to find a new location for weekly meetings and other events.

Faith Lutheran Church has been the local chartering organization for the BSA for about 60 years.

WBAY-TV says Faith Lutheran has notified the BSA that its beliefs no longer align with the church and that it will need a new location by June 1.

Faith belongs to the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, which has advised its thousands of churches to cut ties with the Boy Scouts following its decision to accept openly gay adult leaders.

The Appleton Boy Scouts council says the overwhelming majority of its members, families and chartered organizations remain committed to scouting.
