Based on Pauls posting concerning the "statement of pricipal",
just what was it, and what does BSA require? Does a SCOUT and
his family have to be a "practicing" member of a formaly recognised
chuch? Or is knowing and undestanding and reciting the SCOUT OATH
and the LAW enough?
We have lots of parents that mark down that they are member of the
the church that my family attends. However, we have never seen them
in church, even at Christmas, nor at any church social funtions, and
the scouts don't attend the religious ed programs. But NO one
stoped them from joining BSA. If they never attend church but don't
stand up an say I am an athisist, is that OK>? I very strongly
support the Scout OATH and LAW as they stand today!! Don't get me
wrong. I am just not sure I know who to keep out and who to let in?
Don Izard, somewhat confused by the "rules" once again.
