It is quite easy to complain about something, quite another to respond in a positive way.
So props to Taylor Marshall Why I’m Starting a New Boy Scouts: My Catholic Scouting Manifesto.
It is sad that the Boy Scouts of America caved to political correctness.
Still I find it odd my own reaction since I quit the scouts as a kid. Even in grade school I was a fervent atheist. The boy scout oath started to annoy me with the “To do my duty to God” part. I had enjoyed the outdoor scouting aspects and was almost willing to subsume my atheism to take part. Thankfully what I said when I resigned has gone down the memory hold, although I do remember having worn my Boy Scout nekerchief that was threaded together with a peace sign at that last meeting.
Now I am mad at the scouts for a totally different reason. Funny how things change.
So how long until “Being prepared” for the Scouts means carrying a condom?
