I made Eagle, and I dont remember any Mormons even being in the troops in my area, let alone controlling them. I also hiked Philmont the summer of 99 and I dont remember anything mentioning Mormons.
The event in the article seems to be only a special one for Mormon scouts.
ssshhhh you’ll mess up the paranoid ramblings!
Not from me!
It sounds like the MORMON scouts were merely together in a big group of like believers. I saw nothing in the article that they were going tent-to-tent two-by-two explaining the Restored Gospel® to anyone.
