Hindus to Dharma,
If I were a scout in the UK, could I pledge to Greg, instead? Dharma and her whole family are just too liberal.
What won't happen? Maybe some things won't happen. But, like its UK version, BSA already admits Muslims and even provides pamphlets helping them with their religious faith. Only people who do not have religious beliefs aren't allowed to join (people like my kids). But BSA fully admits the Allah-worshippers. (Which is the final smack in the face... :-0 ).
I checked the web site for the national Boy Scout Jamboree, and found the following:
A Scout is Reverent The 12th point of the Scout LawA Scout is Reverentillustrates just how important spirituality is to the Boy Scouts of America. All Scouts, no matter what religion they practice, have a home and brotherhood in Scouting and at the 2001 National Scout Jamboree.
Nearly 6000 Catholic Scouts and adult leaders stood in heavy rain and unseasonably chilly temperatures to celebrate Mass at the Boy Scout National Jamboree being held at Fort A.P. Hill, VA. Archbishop Gabriel Montalvo, the Apostolic Nuncio Presiding over the Mass was joined by Bishop Walter Sullivan, of the Diocese of Richmond, VA, and Bishop Gerald A. Gettelfinger of the Diocese of Evansville, IN. who serves as the Episcopal Liaison between the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts of America.
Approximately 145 chaplains, representing 19 religious denominations, provided spiritual direction and guidance to Scouts, Scout leaders, and visitors who attended the jamboree. The jamboree's 20 subcamps, which house 1,700 Scouts and leaders apiece, will have a chaplain of each Scout's faith, including Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, and more.
