LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Two more Kentucky churches say they are cutting ties with the Boy Scouts over its decision to allow gay youths to join.
Pastors at Severns Valley Baptist Church in Elizabethtown and Rineyville Baptist Church say they will not renew their charters with the Boy Scouts of America when they expire later in the year.
An associate pastor at Severns Valley, Jeff Wilson, says the new policy does not adhere to Biblical and church standards. The vote not to renew the charters, he said, was unanimous. Severns Valley has more than 4,000 members.
Previously, Louisville's Southeast Christian Church said it would not renew its charter with Boy Scout Troop 212. Pastor Dave Stone said the church did not desire to get caught up in the new direction of the Boy Scouts. Troop 212 and Cub Scout Pack 212 have until the end of the year to relocate.
