ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) — Two more churches in central Kentucky say they are cutting ties with the Boy Scouts of America over the organization's decision to allow gay youth.

Pastors at Severns Valley Baptist Church in Elizabethtown and Rineyville Baptist Church told The News-Enterprise that they will not renew their charters with the Boy Scouts when the agreements expire later this year.

Jeff Wilson, an associate pastor at Severns Valley, said a vote Sunday by senior pastors and deacons was unanimous because the new Boy Scout policy doesn't adhere to Biblical and church standards. He says the church has more than 4,000 members.

At least one other church in Kentucky — Southeast Christian Church in Louisville — has said it will cut ties with the Boy Scouts.
