Wednesday, March 27, 2013 Mr. Wayne Brock Chief Scout Executive Boy Scouts of America 1325 West Walnut Hill Lane PO Box 152079 Irving, TX 75015-2079 Mr. Wayne Perry National President Boy Scouts of America 1325 West Walnut Hill Lane PO Box 152079 Irving, Texas, 75015-2079

Dear Mr. Brock and Mr. Perry: As an emerging Province in the global Anglican Communion, the Anglican Church in North America is pleased to support the Boy Scouts of America. In association with our 900+ congregations, the Anglican Scouting North America program (http://www.anglican-scouting.org) supports numerous scouting units throughout the United States and Canada. As a new entity, the program projects exponential growth of these units throughout the next few years. In consideration of the proposed membership policy change allowing sponsors of scouting units to determine their own membership guidelines with regard to sexual orientation, please know that the policy of the Anglican Church in North America does not support homosexual activity. Consequently, we would not support this change in our scouting troops. Faithfully in Christ,

The Most Reverend Robert W. Duncan Archbishop and Primate Anglican Church in North America
