Wolfinger still undecided on scout charter, says ‘faith influences what I do’

Kootenai County Sheriff Ben Wolfinger told the Spokesman-Review’s Scott Maben in an interview yesterday that he hasn’t yet decided whether to keep or drop the Boy Scout troop chartered by the sheriff’s office, but he said his Christian faith and what the Bible says about homosexuality are weighing heavily on him as he struggles with the recent decision by the Boy Scouts of America to end the organization’s membership ban on gay youth. “I don’t think I can make any decision in my life without bringing my faith into it,” said Wolfinger, an elder in the large, evangelical Real Life Ministries church. “My faith influences what I do every day.” You can read Maben’s full report here.
