I realise that I'm probably way out of line, since I havn't got a clue about
the requirements of the BSA Religious awards but.......
In my Venturer unit in Australia, there is a part of the award scheme called
"ideals" under which the youth members can learn about and more fully
participate in religious activities (amongst other things). I encourage them
to find out about other religions from their own if they are interested.
This is not to "convert" them, but simply to create more
understanding/tolerance of other religions, or simply to compare to their
own and maybe see things in a different perspective. Note: venturers are
14-18 year olds.
This might be food for thought for you.
