Gee, Jeff, there's many people I don't like, but that's not the reason to
take them out of scouting.
One of the purposes of scouting is to learn to get along with people
regardless of what we think of them. Learn to work together.
I understand your dilema as I am speaking from personal experience, as I
also had a major problem person leading my troop a few years back. It
really makes you work harder and be more tolerant of others, as you may
need to step in to handle things you normally wouldn't have. Eventually
this person can be killed with kindness, or they will burn out and drop out.
Now, if this person is doing something that is harmful or destructive to
the kids, you have another problem, this needs to be taken care of, by
following the rules set forth talk to you DE if necessary.
