Morales acknowledged the strained relationship between the Unitarian Universalist Association and the BSA. Over the past 15 years, many UU congregations stopped sponsoring troops over BSA’s policies forbidding gay scouts and adult leaders and over its exclusion of atheists.
“Given the BSA’s recent policy change, I look forward to initiating a dialogue between our two organizations in order to re-establish right relations,” Morales said. “Together, we can create a welcoming community for all UU boys and young men who want to participate in scouting.”
