    are going to need to be updated as well.

    Lets start with the Oath, eh?

    Is the organization going to allow separate but unequal definitions of fundamental principals?

    And then, of course, summer happens.

    Organizationally councils run camps, not chartering organizations.  

    Eventually, one would think, camps would not be able to  exclude units based upon the orientation of their scouts or their leaders.  

    But change happens slow, willthis open an ugly interim situation before reason prevails?

      I immediately pictured the summer camps admitting the members of some troops, but not the members of others.

        to have to make a stand.

        I suppose they could leave it up to individual council's but the council's stand to lose all but their their lil' green sock tabs in discrimination suits if they go big stupid.

        Unfortunately as I recall from my days working my council's camp in Upstate New York, the council was all about big stupid as is the on's my kids were involved with here outside Philly.
