  •  My brother is a scout leader.... (0+ / 0-)

    and not an abuser or pushing religion on the scouts.  It should be an outdoors organization emphasizing camping and service.

    Its roots are as a paramilitary organization to prepare young men for war- hence the uniforms and saluting and medals and badges.  It is as good or as bad as the local volunteers.  Those who had the experience I described above will try and provide for their scouts a similar experience.

    The national leadership is fairly conservative- you are right about that.
