Bob -- I agree with you 100%, that it is a horrible instruction.
Unfortunately, the Church has come under severe assault over the last
several years for liability issues, admittedly not all without merit. It is
up to the Diocese to police the parishes compliance with this request, but
for obvious reasons, parishes want to sponsor Scouting, and no bishop wants
the rap of being against Scouting. Patently unfair, but until people are will
ing to assume personal responsibility for the risks of living, people with
perceived *deep pockets* have to be careful.
