  •  I Was A Scout Back In The 70s (7+ / 0-)

    and I didn't realize any of what you just mentioned. It was about as apolitical or religious of any organization I was a part of. It was a wonderful group I was apart of. I mean I was the short overweight kids that was maybe a little feminine and nobody seemed to care in the least.

    •  I was a scout too... (6+ / 0-)

      Through our Catholic Church.  Actually received a badge that was for 'Catholics'.  But scouting was not religious per se - I don't even think there were any prayers during the meeting and I think our troop had non-Catholics.

        Ending of every meeting:

        "May the Great Scout Master,

        Who watches over all good Scouts,

        Watch over us and guide us,

        Until we meet again"

        I am an Eagle, I too gained a lifetime love of the outdoors via this organization, and I strenuously object to the Fundamentalist direction it was hijacked into.
