The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that they're delaying a controversial and highly-anticipated vote to lift a ban on gay membership.
The question tonight - does the long history between Mormons and the Boy Scouts have anything to do with the announcement today?
Mormons represent 15% of the 2.7 million registered Boy Scouts, the single biggest group. Their departure could leave a gaping hole in a the boy scouts organization, which has seen its membership decline by a third since 1999.
Statement from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:
"We believe [Boy Scouts of America] has acted wisely in delaying a vote on this policy issue until the implications can be more carefully evaluated. We caution others not to speculate about our position or to assume that individual Latter-day Saints inside or outside the scouting movement speak for the Church. Neither has the Church launched any campaign either to effect or prevent a policy change."
Outfront tonight: McKay Coppins is a reporter for Buzzfeed and a practicing Mormon he's been working his sources all day, and John Gustav-Wrathall is a former eagle scout who says he has been ex-communicated from the Mormon church because he is openly gay.
