In terms of sexual identification and behavior, we affirm that any sexual activity outside the context of the covenant of marriage between one man and one woman is sinful before God and therefore inconsistent with the values and principles of the program.
It also states that adult members “must subscribe to and abide by the statement of Christian faith and the Oath and Creed of the program (currently being finalized).”

Reporters were not allowed to attend the event, but CNN reports that at the convention the group unveiled its name and logo.

Since the new Boy Scouts of America policy allowing gay youth goes into effect January 2014, Trail Life USA officially launches January 2014.
