I have mixed emotions in regards to the "nudist" Scouter couple. Yes, it is
on their own time but I feel they should have been more discreet about their
lifestyle choice and if they had kept it to theirselves this question would
not have to be posed.
Can't this be considered a deviant lifestyle? I think a lot of parents may
be upset with people who choose to expose their nude bodies. With so much
"talk" of child molesters and such, it may only cause a lot of innuendo.
Many people are quick to jump to conclusions without having all the facts
especially when they don't know a lot about people or understand. We are
quick to think the worse. It's human nature.
Is this setting the kind of example that the Scout Law tries to instill?
Shouldn't leaders live their lives unsullied?
I have just as much trouble trying to understand this type of behavior as
that of homosexuals. (I'll probally be flamed for this one) IMHO "it just
ain't right" and it is not the image of BSA.
Evidently our country has a problem with it since we just can't walk around
in the "buff" whenever we choose or where-ever. Why would anyone want to
expose themselves to others?
