To the person asking whether a Buddist boy should be encouraged to
join Cubs and Scouts. YES.
The following is an excerpt from the "Special Opportunities" file
on the Scouts-l filelist.
> RELIGIOUS EMBLEMS
>"A Scout is reverent." All Scouts show this by being faithful in
>their duty to God. Some go further and give special service. This can
>qualify them for a religious emblem. Such an emblem is not a Scouting

>has its own requirements for earning its emblem. Listed below are the
>emblems and where to find out about them. before writing or visiting
>your local council service center, check with your religious leader.
