Letter: Why hasn't LDS Church denounced goblin topplers?

Concerning the vandals at the Goblin State Park, the Boy Scouts have removed the troop leaders from their posts, worldwide newspapers, radio stations, blogs and online media have all expressed outrage over what these vandals did. But the LDS Church has been very quiet.

These two hooligans are church youth leaders. Why has the church not come out and denounced their actions? Is it that the church condones the actions that these vandals have done? Why are they still allowed to be "youth leaders"? Are these the kind of people we want leading our children? Where is the church?
