Tupelo Church Cancels Boy Scout Charter

BOYSCOUTS

TUPLEO, MIss. — Boy Scout troop 85 no longer has a place at the Harrisburg Baptist church in Tupelo. According to the pastor there, a wide majority of members voted to end their charter. The decision was prompted by a recent change in Boy Scott membership, allowing openly gay scouts to join. Troop 85 may have to disband if they can not find another sponsor.
