Mormon church thinks over trans inclusive boyscouts policy

ALMKE, GERMANY - JULY 31: A scout poses for a photograph at the camp on July 31, 2010 in Almke near Wolfsburg, Germany. About 5000 young scouts from Germany, Russia, Belgium, Suisse, USA and Italy aged 12 to 20 participate in a camp. Since 1973, the German VCP-Christian Guides and Pathfinders organisation, offers an International historic boys and girls scout meeting during the summer holidays. On a 25 hectare field include 1370 tens, a tent church and a tent theater. The Federal camp is held every four years. (Photo by Andreas Rentz/Getty Images)

he Mormon church says it has been assured it can run its scouting troops consistent with its religious beliefs . And the new rules of boy scouts which now allow transgender boys to participate in the organisation (after a 8-year-old trans boy won a legal battle to be a bo9yscout) will not stop the Mormons from supporting them, but the exact decision is yet to be made. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said in the statement Tuesday that it’s studying the announcement made Monday while looking for ways to better serve its young people worldwide. The Salt Lake City-based church was given a similar assurance when Boy Scouts decided to allow gay troop leaders in 2015. Protestant churches do not recognize transgender people thinking that gender is given by God and being unsatisfied with God’s gift and trying to get rid of it is believed to be an act of disrespect to God
