    BSA is set up through institutions.  If the Mormons and Catholics were to pull out, BSA would be no more.

    That said, what they are finding is a stagnant base.  
       - Registration for Jamboree 2013 is down.
       - Membership in urban areas is down.
       - Corporate donors are down.
       - Sponsorship of BSA troops from mainline Protestant churches is dropping.
       - There is a threat that DOD may break their longstanding policy of support and cooperation with BSA.
       - They are one Democratic House and Senate away from getting a repeal "Save Our Scouts" waiver that was in the Homeland Security Act.

    It's the growth and future they need to think about.  Seriously.
