  Los Angeles Times Hints Religion Behind Opposition to Boston Temple
In an article discussing the legal battles surrounding the LDS Church's Boston Temple, the Los Angeles Times hints in its headline that opposition to Mormonism  is behind the battles. However, in the article itself MIT astronomy professor Charles Counsleman, one of the principal opponents of the building, claims that the opposition is not to Mormonism, but to the building, "The opposition that the neighbors have to this temple is exactly the same kind of opposition you'd have if someone wanted to build a shopping mall on that location."

  Boy Scouts' Mormon Cash
The LDS Church is getting noticed for its stand with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) against homosexuality. This alternet story surveys the role of religion in scouting, and how church involvement in scouting has made the BSA different from other youth organizations.
