The Salt Lake Tribune -- Boy Scout decision disappoints LDS Church: "The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear an appeal by the Boy Scouts of America over the organization's exclusion from a Connecticut fund-raising program, a disappointment for the LDS Church, the nation's largest religious sponsor of Scouting.
The high court's action lets stand a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholding the exclusion of the Scouts from sharing in program donations under a Connecticut law that prohibits discrimination or the sanctioning of discrimination by the state based on sexual orientation.
The Scouts bar homosexuals from being members, volunteer leaders or employees. "
