BELMONT, N.H. (AP) — A lightning strike at a New Hampshire Boy Scouts camp has injured nearly two dozen scouts.
Scouts spokesman Greg Osborn says no one was directly hit by the lightning Monday at the Griswold Scout Reservation. He says some of the 23 scouts and three adults who were injured complained of tingling and burning sensations and all were treated by camp nurses before being hospitalized as a precaution. He says those who were treated are doing well and are in good spirits.
The lightning struck during a big evening storm just outside Belmont at Camp Bell, one of two camps at the reservation. The camp offers activities including rock climbing and sailing.
Firefighters say the lightning struck near where the Boy Scouts had gathered. Osborn says the Scouts were under shelter at the time.
HOUSTON (AP) - Southern Baptist pastors from around the nation are meeting in Houston in advance of their denomination's annual conference starting Tuesday.
The Southern Baptist Convention, with nearly 16 million members, remains the nation's largest Protestant denomination, but membership declined slightly last year and baptisms fell by 5.5 percent.
At the pastors conference Sunday evening, Pastor Gregg Matte of Houston's First Baptist Church said, "Our country is in trouble, our churches are in trouble, our pastors are in trouble." He said, "We need more Jesus."
Southern Baptists are expected to pass a resolution urging congregations to end their sponsorship of Boy Scout troops now that gay youths will be allowed to join. Church leaders also are worried about growing acceptance of gay marriage and government requiring some religious institutions to provide contraception coverage.
Members of a national organization are protesting a proposed change to the Boy Scouts.
OnMyHonor.net organized a rally today in the Central West End. The protestors were arguing against changing the organization's long standing policy banning gay members. Delegates with the Boy Scouts plan to vote next week on lifting that ban.
The changes would not apply to adult members.
