After reviewing my original (still unsent) note on this subject
and many great thoughts I have the following recommendations.
My recommendations are founded on the idea that scouting has so
much to offer I would want every boy to be a scout. Also I think
that to throw away that part of the world between 60E and 179E
longtitude would be a shame to any of us who do believe.
1>"Don't say "I do not believe in God" and We won't ask or pry.
Basically the same kind of decision that President Clinton and
the military had to make.
If you say you don't, Sorry we are not empowered to make that
kind of exception for you.
2>Recommend a Change to the Scout Oath
The word God replaced with my Set of Spiritual Beliefs
B-P may have even wanted to do this considering all he saw and
was but it wasn't PC at the time.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
