    I agree with @Jeremy! I am a Chicago personal injury lawyer and I have seen a lot of people who are not living anywhere near the scout law. It’s nice to have a reminder. thanks for posting.

      I have to agree with Anna K on this one. I have a gay relative but I do not think he sholud be allowed to be a Scoutmaster or Advisor to young impressionable boys or girls for that matter when you talk about Venturing. I know this is a very touchy subject and I know some countries allow the LGBTQ to exist in Scouting but here in the USA we do not. I guess it is about morals. Just my two cents

    The Scout Law is something that goes beyond scouting. The world would be a better place if everyone would live their lives even halfway living up to the Scout Laws. Thanks for posting them here.

        could not agree more. The scouting oiarnazgtions of the world should also adopt some other countries membership policies such as no women, no non-christians, no poor, no vegans, no colored people, no handicapped and/or persons with eyeglasses! If we could make these a universal scout policy in the next couple of years we will have a blast at the next jamboree. Oh and did I mention that no Japanese people should be allowed as scouts too, they are smiling to much
