Bryan -- is the director of issues analysis with the American Family Association he joins me now -- Skype from Tupelo Mississippi.

The sexual integrity of the young boys that are under their -- And all of -- -- out the window now if you put your side and the boy scouts of America you simply have no guarantee.
That are not going to be exposed to actual risk.
Of course got policy now what -- change that apparently nothing that will stop a seventeen year old active homosexual.
From sleeping in the same -- with your fourteen year old son.
If you're out of fourteen year old daughter and you -- -- that she was gonna go camping trip.
And be sleeping in the same area of the seventeen year old -- no way in the world.
You would a couple of that the risk is simply too great but that's now the rest of the boards doesn't it say what our sons as an excuse -- But what we wouldn't it be better to work with and the boy scouts of America to make some sort of rules about that sort of in a minute but that's got to -- -- openly day.
Then it's totally.
Acceptable -- to say.
If you -- -- homosexual then you should not be sleeping with in the same tent as someone who was a heterosexual male to me why what why -- the better answer be working with and the Boy Scouts.
To create parameters rather then.
Jumping ship all the -- Reality aggressive nature of homosexual.
Activists there not simpler -- -- But having homosexuals now but boy scouts of America they're that a number corporations like corporate -- That -- party told the court they are gonna -- all their corporate funding.
Until the Boy Scouts allow.

Was -- of America be welcoming teaching people teaching youngsters about tolerance and this is what the Boy Scouts is.
Are about as well wouldn't it be better for the church is to create that within the Boy Scouts instead of as I say.
Jumping ship altogether.
The reality of the board.
I -- forced out all of it now.
The first thing -- they'll let themselves the due to do their duty to.
We know what got design as human sexuality is not as simple such behavior so they've made that are forced out.
-- -- -- Course got all the -- and so it is physically strong but we -- other homosexual behavior is that apple want to risk factor.
-- are affecting HIV say -- in my paper we edit that part of or Seattle and the third part of the court battle that that they would be morally straight.
I mean there's -- reason why people on the all essential community -- all of us.
So -- -- -- working nation and there's something bad at the bit about homosexual behavior so the board got that made their all and all meaningless.
I've got I've got to bring in the Mormon offers the church of latter day saints the editor of Jesus Christ of latter day saints.
The more church has more boy scout troops more greater association with -- -- -- of America than any church -- denomination in the United States I believe.
And they are okay with this change.
They I have said that they actually.
Agree that that this is going to be.
That the way the boy scouts of America change was correct they -- they -- they they like this change.
That it's okay for openly gay scouts but not troop leaders.
What is in an orange shirts.
I think they're very very building I think they're being pretty.
And that has there ever -- -- almost thirty years one of them major scandals in stabbing.
Where older adult males were playing our formal arms -- At age thirteen fourth it has its place in the -- all.
In a boy scout troop that was sponsored.
By the Mormon church and -- -- estimated that would be so we now.
The -- at long is that at all.
Time I think we have that's Brian Fisher M -- director eight issues and thousands of the American Family Association.
I have the feeling that will probably be hearing a lot more about this issue and and I and we did have.
