Boy Scout Manual
« on: October 03, 2017, 01:47:21 PM »
Have any of you read the Boy Scout Manual?

It is basically the codification of Scout law.

I am sort of curious about it. Apparently is like the Boys version of the Girl Scout Manual. Sort of the distillation of Scouting laws and teachings in a massive book form.

I know there is some controversy about it, but I do not know why there should be?


Are there anyone here who can help?




Seriously...I could post crap like this all day.
Every taco is hand rolled with exotic Mexican spices by genuine Mayan Virgins.
Or. Carlos, depending on who's available.

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

In terms of reliogisity our scout movement dropped any mention of god in their promise about 5 years ago, finally caught up with that aspect of the modern world. I do hope, however, that they are instilling some ideas about critical thinking, self-discipline and reliance, duty, helping others etc.
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

As could be expected, the Scouts in the US have moved in the opposite direction.

Quote
Eagle-eyed Scouts and Scouters have noticed something new in the Boy Scout rank requirements that take effect next year: “tell how you have done your duty to God.”

To be clear, “duty to God” has been a part of the Boy Scouts of America from the start. The first BSA Handbook for Boys, published in 1911, says “no boy can grow into the best kind of citizenship without recognizing his obligation to God.”

What’s new is that beginning Jan. 1, 2016, every rank from Tenderfoot to Eagle Scout (plus Eagle Scout palms) will include a “duty to God” requirement.
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."
— H. L. Mencken

Maybe this should be merged but I don't really know.

I am ever so terrified of Hell. The fact that other people have gone there and I myself may one day go too if I'm not good.

I almost at times wish Hell doesn't exist, but our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ spoke of it far more than of Heaven.

Can you people tell me why you don't believe in Hell and it's eternity?

You're funny.  ;D

I wonder if the Scout manual has changed it scripture on The Gays?   :airquotes:

I was never a Scout but as a kid I always wanted to join the Ranger Rick group. The mascot was a cute little raccoon in a Smokey the Bear outfit. I think the organization folded before I came of age.

Wait. Is this post for real, or was it a joke?  :scratch:

Have any of you read the Talmud?

It is basically the codification of Jewish law.

I am sort of curious about it. Apparently is like the Jewish version of our very own catechism. Sort of the distillation of Jewish laws and teachings in a massive book form.

I know there is some controversy about it, but I do not know why there should be?

You're good, Father Bruno.
Sister's style is the same in most of her/his posts, isn't it?

I was a Boy Scout ...back in the bronze age. I do remember the oath  that promised to serve god and country.   Beyond that oath, there was never any effort to make Christians of scouts. Our aim was to rub sticks together to build fires, learn how to tie various knots, paddle a canoe, swim well, learn basic first aid, and preserve nature in the same condition that we found it.  Scouting was cool for we under advantaged kids. Yes I was one of them.  We also held the American flag in reverence and treated it with great respect.  We were fortunate to be American kids. We were encouraged to know that, as a matter of fact.  All of us did.

I have no idea about what became of the scout creed.  I do hope that it has not been diluted.
