EAGLE App and Religious "requirement"
Fri, 18 Apr 1997 11:50:36 -0700
Well, with my receiving so much great responce to my "Woodbadge"
question, I have another....
As Advancement Chair (not to be mistaken for a Park Bench) I was
asked by a Scout the other night what he should put on his "Eagle Scout Rank
Application" form. The Scout tells me that though he believes in God,
his is not a religious family and therefore he has no affiliation
with a church.
So, what does he put under Requirement 2 on the form where it asks for
the name of a Religious person. In my review of all info available...
primarily the requirements for Eagle Scout in the Handbook, nowhere does
it mention the requirement to be a church going person.
So I guess my question is .. if he leaves this line blank.. will the form
be sent back to him.....
Note: our Troop is sponsered by the local Rotary Club so hold those
suggestions that we simply have the Minister of our chartering church
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
We live together, we act on, and react to, one another;
but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves.
The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena;
they are crucified alone. A.H.
