The New Year will be historic for Boy Scouts of America. For the first time since the organization was created in 1910, openly gay youth will be allowed to join. 60 percent of the BSA's national council approved the policy change. Plenty of blacklash eventually led to the creation of Trail Life USA.
Trail Life USA is considered a "Christian" alternative to Boy Scouts of America. ABC 33/40 confirmed that 2 churches in the Birmingham metro will host young men and volunteers associated with Trail Life USA---Briarwood Presbyterian Church and Hunter Street Baptist Church.
We reached out to both churches for comment. Hunter Street Baptist Church declined to speak with us. Briarwood did not return our calls.
