Mormons to cut nearly century-old tie with Boy Scouts, a week after decision to drop 'boy' from name

Mormons to cut nearly century-old tie with Boy Scouts, a week after decision to drop 'boy' from nameThe Mormon church will cut all ties with Boy Scouts, a week after movement announced its decision to drop ‘boy’ from its name. A statement issued by the church said it had opted for the split so it could create its own youth programme, although the two organisations’ values had clearly diverged over recent years. The announcement was not a complete surprise after the religion last year removed 185,000 boys between the ages of 14 and 18 from the Scouts, signalling an end to a nearly century-old relationship based on shared values.
