What a great post and some real thoughtful insight
Isn't it about time that BSA got back to the basics..... that made scouting
largest youth program in the world.
Lets get our heads out of the courts, and all the political correctness and
back into the woods.
I seem to enjoy the stories and fellowship of a campfire a lot more than the
posturing of the national office.
In the glow of a campfire it's real hard to tell a scout/scouters race, or
religion. When we sing around the fire
it doesn't matter much how or if anyone sings in church. For some of us
sharing the outdoors is a (one) way of worship.
For most of us working with boys is a never ending series of questions that
we attempt to guide boys to find there own answers to. As scouts we all
profess a belief...but that doesn't mean we have the answer nor should we
turn our back on the thoughtful questions of our youth, regardless of what
national may have determined is truth for them.
Last time I looked around a scout/scouter was free to practice their
religion, eave if that practice involves the realistic questions that for
some only faith can answer.
