Boy Scouts-LDS Church Alliance Hits 100 Years

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Boy Scouts of America will celebrate 100 years of partnership with an event Tuesday night at the LDS conference center in Salt Lake City.

The presentation, called “A Century of Honor,” will feature songs from a Boy Scouts choir, historical reenactments and videos showing important historical events. It will be broadcast live around the country in English and Spanish.

Mormon church leaders and national Boy Scouts leaders are expected to attend.

The bond between the two organizations was born in the early 1900s from mutual values and principles.

In May, the church threw its support behind the Boy Scouts’ new policy that allows gay youth to join the ranks, while continuing to ban gay adult Scout leaders.
