Anthony, thanks for the response, but its wrong! (grin). If the
Councils are so involved and following the parents wishes, then why is
there so much disagreement with the policies? Each Council is run by
volunteers...those selected by the Council Executives! You would not
believe all the tricks that have been used (and taught) by pro's to
assure that only the "right" people get those jobs. Generally they are
good people, dont get me wrong, but still, they are selected because
they support the conservative agenda that the Scout Executives wants.
And if as you say, that the whole purpose is to provide support for the
Scouting program, then why is the program dying everywhere?
No, you volunteeers had better wake up, look around, and make the
changes that can save Scouting...because we are almost too small now to
make any difference.
And anybody who has had any real involvement knows that Scouting can
make a huge difference...like it did when it was run according to the
Its whether or not character really counts!
