Mormon Church OK With Gay Scouts?

NBC News is reporting that the LDS Church has tacitly approved the BSA recommendation to accept gay scouts. The full statement seems more neutral than NBC seems to suggest.

Some of the comments to the story ask why it should matter what Mormons think. The story answers that: "The Mormon church tops the list of membership enrollment numbers, with 431,000 youths participating in LDS-sponsored units as of Dec. 31, 2012." My question is why should the BSA care what people that don't and are unlikely to participate in Scouting think.

I have noted my practical concerns with the issue before, and that is all I have to say.
