Good Question about the 3-G's.
IMHO, the BSA recognizes many worldwide religions. The religious recognition
program that is used by the BSA is also used by the GSA and 4H associations.
The P.R.A.Y. webpage displays the BSA poster and include Buddhism as one of
the many recognized religions.
Also, the Direct Service Council, Aloha Council (Hawaii) and the Far East
Council (Japan for US Businesses and Armed Forces) have many families that
worship in the Buddhist faith. (Nearly 1/3 of all the scouts in Hawaii).
I'm sure that if they are not on this list, there are a few volunteers and
professional scouters in Hawaii than could better explain it.
