Almost forgot to mention this: Boy Scouts Celebrate 100 Years of Camping, Service
Like Jim Kirk, Murdoc was never a Boy Scout. But my son is in Scouts and it is a great program.
Happy Birthday, Boy Scouts.
A lot of people say no. Probably not coincidentally, most of the people I know who say that are the people I know who I disagree with the most strongly on political and societal issues.
I believe that a number of items in the “The Case Against Scouting” section of the linked article are misstated or just plain wrong. I also find it interesting that the case “For” gets half the first page while the case “Against” gets all of pages two and three. I’ll just chalk this up to the idea that the arguments in favor of Scouting are simple, straightforward, and readily apparent to nearly everyone, while the cases against it require a lot of in-depth explanation of nuances and secret Mormon conspiracies.
