Mormons believe, as stated by the 13th article of faith, "in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul-We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."

The Boy Scouts of America is an organization that instills chastity, honesty, benevolence, and virtue in young boys, who grow to be leaders in their community. It is due to the similarities in beliefs and the social oppurtunity to be with like minded individuals, that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints associate with the Boy Scouts. In 2000 there were approximately 400,000 young boys in the LDS scouting program, which accounted for about 12 % of the boys active in scouting. Only the Methodists had more boys enrolled.
