The General Commission on United Methodist Men has joined conservative voices urging the Boy Scouts of America not to open its membership to homosexuals, Baptist Press reports. In February, GCUMM sent a letter to Wayne Brock, Boy Scouts of America chief Scout executive, calling on the group not to implement proposals being considered at the BSA's annual meeting in May to open Scouting leadership and membership to homosexuals. The Methodist organization also called on Scouting to revitalize its relationship with the faith community. More than 40 other faith denominations and conservative groups have voiced similar concerns, including the Southern Baptist Convention's Executive Committee, the International Communion of Evangelical Churches, the American Family Association and the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute.
