No, the Mormon church isn't using
Boy Scouts to bring back polygamy
There is no evidence to suggest that the church is posturing for a return to polygamy. Fischer appears to have pulled this from his butt. (Irony intended.)
Besides allowing gay boys to become Boy Scouts (but not gay men to become Scout leaders), the LDS Church has “softened” its stance on the LGBT community only in two respects. Before a Salt Lake City Council meeting a year ago, it supported nondiscriminatory employment and housing practices; and nowadays it says a same-sex attraction isn’t sinful per se provided one doesn’t act on it.
The church still opposes same-sex marriage and marriage-like unions, and considers homosexuality—or, at least, homosexual acts—sinful.
Oh, and it opposes polygamy, too. We don’t expect to see that change anytime soon. As we observed in a blog post last week, the average octogenarian male can handle only so much.
