This is taken to mean that there are two codes of "PROPER" conduct ...
One in Uniform ... One out of Uniform ... ????
Is this the hyprocracy you wish to teach the troops ???
If it's improper conduct ... It's improper conduct !!!
Questionable conduct at a scout function is just as wrong in or out of
uniform!!! If you won't do it in uniform, why approve of it out.
Why do the adult leaders feel that council/district/etc level functions
need to include something that they are ashamed of enough to not want to
be seen in uniform.
You stop being a scout when you shed the Uniform?
This from the leaders who have to pass the scouts on living the scout
ideals in there everyday lives for rank advancement. IMHO, I question
the qualification of those with such thinking to make that call.
Right is Right ... Wrong is Wrong ... IN OR OUT OF UNIFORM!!
