    The Bible belt can do that sometimes. Thankfully not any zealots in my tri-state area of Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio that I have run into yet.

    It is true that some take it too far with religion, I had another DE in my training class who was a little too right wing Christian for me.

    I don't think that as Scouts in general we focus on it, but it is one of the main basic principles that we are founded on. Mostly we want the Scouts to learn how to be 'Reverent', as in believing that there is more out there, be it orginized religion or nature itself.

    most my real problems stemmed from the fact that the psycho parents ground heavily on the religious aspects of it all. granted great rules to live by stemmed from these parts but DAMN is there anything out there we can use to raise our kids right that doesn't require hardball religious themes?

    Oh yeah, that saying has been around since I was in scouts.

    And those psyco den leaders are the worst since they do drive the kids and parents away. As a matter of fact I had a leader stop by since a certin leader just ran out the packs Cubmaster.

    both Boy and Girl Scouts frighten me. my mom tried to push me into girl scouts when i was little and i couldn't stand it. especially when i saw how much more fun my brothers got being with the boys scouts. but all the adults i ever met involved with either set off my "psycho-zealot" alarm so i just hated it.

    i mean i love the idea of having groups that teach our children things they normally wouldn't know while allowing them to socialize and learn vital skills. i just don't like psycho-den parents.

    besides, i loved having an excuse to get my brother the shirt that said "I got kicked out of Scouts for eating a Brownie"

    I did have to spend a week out at Summer Camp as the professional to do training for the leaders, but I got to cheat and stay in one of the small staff cabins. I will use my tent when my district has camporee weekends for the Troops.

    Mostly I am at the events to stop any problems that might come up. I do not do any work that involves working with the Scouts directly. I am suppose to be the person who recriuts and trains the volenteer leaders, try to raise money for the programs through fundraising, and I go out to schools and churches to try to start new troops and get kids to join scouting.
