    It really depends where your troop is.  I'm in the Northern VA area, and the scout troop in our school is all nice people doing things that you describe.  I hate how the creepy national org or the cultist troops are ruining this org.  I've never heard an overtly religious or anti gay comment. My friends son is in it, and they did speeches on world religions once...and my friends son is of Muslim descent and everyone really was receptive his speech.  Be careful painting all people with one brush.  That's what the GOP does...e.g., all blacks are welfare queens, all gays are immoral, all Democratsnare unAmerican.  There are a lot of fine kids and boy scout orgs having good fun and immensely helping their communities.  

    However, this crap better stop or they are going to lose all the normal people soon...very sad.

      ....because I had A LOT OF FUN in the Boy Scouts when I was a kid.  So did my dad.  Sometimes I think my dad enjoyed it more than I did.

      It's just...as an adult, I've had zero contact with the organization.  Cheered me up reading your comment.  I hate to think that all the great things from my childhood have died out.
