I can imagine someone who has been taught that the
Christian Trinitarian vision is the only way to view God
being taken back by Scouting's non-sectarian view. When we
speak of the "great spirit" or such if someone is not able
to understand that the language is deliberately intended to
let Christians substitute either "God" or "The Father"
while Moslems insert "Allah," Jews "Adonia," Unitarians
whatever they insert, Hindus several names and on and on,
then he might well be upset.
My question is how a Scoutmaster let a young man whose
grasp of the religious viewpoint of Scouting missed this
onto the ballot?
