DAYTON, Ind. (AP) _ A Lafayette-area Cub Scout pack has found a new charter home days after a church severed ties with it over the Boy Scouts of America's decision to extend membership to openly gay youth.
Pack 3316 has found a new charter home at Memorial Presbyterian Church in Dayton.
The Lafayette Journal and Courier reports the church's board voted unanimously Tuesday to become the new charter organization for the scouts.
The administrative council of Dayton United Methodist Church voted to sever its ties with the pack on June 11.
An Assemblies of God church in Whiteland, south of Indianapolis, also recently stopped its sponsorship of a Cub Scout pack following the national Boy Scouts decision to allow openly gay youths to join.
