Bare with me on this...There is basicly only one bible...There are several hundred denominations of churches...Each interpreting what they read a little different. Most of the wars ever faught on this here earth were faught because of love or religion. If the kid sees something in our program that he deems wrong (for any reason), who are we to tell him different. We don't want folks that have a different view (the 3 g's) in our program and we should not expect those with a different view having us put upon them either. Scouting and the OA are a way of life and the way I choose to live. It's not for everybody. Just as being a Methodist, LDS, Catholic, or what ever is a choice. All we can do is make our wonderful program available and hope that people listen and join.
Oh and by the way..... I wish all a very happy Thanksgiving. :-)
