A week ago, I would have encouraged you to reconsider. As leaders, we have a solemn charge to protect our scouts and the vast, vast majority of us take it seriously. Youth Protection is a leading protocol that all leaders must take and all parents are encouraged. On every campout, if we have a new parent along, I pull them aside and remind them of the YP protocols. I’ve seen countless leaders walk into a bathroom, see a scout or two in the room and turn around and walk right back out.
Those of us real scout leaders 99.9999999% of us will protect your kids at all cost.
Next week, I may have to give you different advice.
Agreed , as a SM the function of youth protection is paramount. One aspect of this possible change will be those who quit because they do not want the molestation of one of there troop, done by a homosexual SM/ASM or fellow scout on their conscious.
I for one would feel like I totally failed that scout.
