Faint praise.

Really? Can you even define Environmental Science? And don’t you believe that the Scouts’ emphasis on outdoor activity calls for an understanding of the environment and conservation?

I realize that you like touchy-feeley crapola, but shoving politically correct falsehood down a kid’s throat has nothing to do with ‘conservation.’

Cool. I’ve seen some immpossible, so I guess damn near is pretty good. Imagine what this child will accomplish. Outstanding.

What “politically correct” falsehoods do you have in mind? Predator-prey relationships? Population dynamics? Habitat as a function of abiotic conditions? Perhaps you think that adiabatic temperature change and its influence on the distribution of conifers or developing the practice of intercropping in order to maximize agricultural output is “touchy-feely crapola”, but you’d be wrong, and I’m not surprised.

The fine young men of the B S A are not tainted. They deserve our support.

I was involved with Boy Scouts for around 15 years. I held positions such as Cubmaster and Assistant Scout Master. I watched as both of my boys EARNED their Eagle rank. They both earned it when they were 17. I have seen a few boys earn it when they were 16, but I can not imagine anyone EARNING it BY THEMSELVES, by 13.

Yes, I can imagine that it is physically possible for a kid to be rushed through everything by 13 if the adult leaders don’t care and the kid has nothing else on his plate, but it is examples like this which lessen the rank of Eagle Scout.

Now that Boy Scouts of America has abandoned their reverence toward God and their effort to have Scouts “morally straight” I will not have anything more to do with Scouts. If I had a boy right now that wanted to be a Boy Scout, I wouldn’t let him, because I have learned through all the years that there are plenty of other avenues by which young men can be taught to be leaders and self reliant.

Nor do they deserve what’s about to happen to them...

Hey Logan - Go march Drum Corps before you age out. Carolina Crown is in your area.

LOL! You are limited by your limited experience. Perhaps you should meet some homeschoolers, they are not in your small box. LOL!

What about the other 200 that accomplished the same? Do you make the same judgment?
