I have never been a Boy Scout as a kid and I don't have kids. Would I be safe assuming that the Boy Scouts is a conservative group while the Girl Scouts are more oriented down the liberal side? Why?

BSA is more conservative. The misconception is thinking the two groups have anything to do with one another. I thought the same thing until a few years ago just because their names are similar. The people that found them, etc. had totally different agendas and everything.

The National level of the GS went to the dark side decades ago but they pretty much leave the individual troops alone (that is after the dues are collected .)

Considering the BSA's opposition to having gay scouts I would say that they are conservative. Also look at what the UNITED WAY's attitude is toward the BOY SCOUTS. Because of their stance, I refuse to contribute one penny to the UW.

My daughter was a den mother for both of her boys. She is now a scout leader for her girls. Both are based on conservative values. You have to watch the area councils. I told her about Waco, and she checked on the one she is in.
It is the same with school. Parent involvement is important.
