ALTOONA, WI (WTAQ) - A Boy Scout troop near Eau Claire will not have to leave its meeting place at a Catholic church. 

The pastoral council at St. Mary's in Altoona tentatively decided a few weeks ago to remove Troop 90 from the church, after the Boy Scouts revised a membership policy to allow openly gay youngsters to join. 

After a further review, Scoutmaster Bob Thill said La Crosse Bishop William Callahan and another official agreed that the new Scout policy fits into the church's teachings. 

Matt Hill of the Chippewa Valley Scout Council tells the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram that several scout troops are chartered by Catholic churches in the area.
