Scout Oath

Since the publication of Scouting for Boys in 1908, all Scouts and Guides around the world have taken a Scout (or Guide) promise or oath to live up to ideals of the movement, and subscribed to a Scout Law.

We both have children living with our Heavenly Father.our angels: CJ & Whitney. Naoma taught her Webelos to sew, quilt, serve and demonstrate compassion. Together they made a beautiful quilt with the Boy Scout Oath and their names. The pack listened as I shared a few pictures of CJ and told them how much CJ loved scouting. He earned his Arrow of light and super scouter award. His life motto was the Cub Scout motto: DO YOUR BEST! Naoma and I now continue to live that motto as well as the Scout Oath in our lives. I encouraged them to always remember and live their lives by the Cub Scout motto. After I spoke to them my final words of gratitude for their kindness, Naoma and I embraced. All of those in attendance, proceeded to stand and clap. The ...

Did you know that the Boy Scouts of America discriminates against Atheists and Agnostics? Check it out: "Because of its views concerning the duty to God, Boy Scouts of America believes that an atheist or agnostic is not an appropriate role model of the Scout Oath and Law for adolescent boys. Because of Scouting’s methods and beliefs, Scouting does not accept atheists and agnostics as members or adult volunteer leaders." From:

ATTENTION: I am marching tomorrow in my Eagle Scout uniform at the Salt Lake City *** Pride Parade. I will be standing at the side of two MEN: Peter Brownstein holding the US Flag and another active Scoutmaster. This is a cultural event for Americans. Just like the St. Paddy's day parade, or Pioneer Day, or Columbus Day or Thanksgiving Day Parade. These MEN have been bullied by the Boy Scouts of America and threatened they will lose their membership. Oh? For celebrating with Americans and marching directly behind the United States Military contingent who will be guarding us? Come join us. 3:00 pm Saturday at the City Building opening ceremony. And as the second contingent - we are the ones carring the Colors of the United States of America. We are honoring our Scout Oath and Scout Law and keeping our Scout's Promise. We'll be keeping it All. Day. Long.
No one seems happy with the decision of the Scouts to allow sodomites in their ranks. The conservatives want to uphold the Scout Oath to be "morally straight" and the Scout Law to be "clean and reverent" and keep the *** out. The liberals are mad because the decision does not allow for perverts to be Scout Masters. I would like to propose a compromise. Let's have a *** division within the Scouts. Special pink uniforms could be designed for the Sissy Scouts and they could have anyone as a Scout leader, a homosexual or even female. The Sissy Scouts should also be required to take "God" out of the Scout Oath. Or a better compromise might be to just allow the *** join the Girl Scouts. The Boy Scouts could consider letting the *** be Boy Scouts. But the lessies would have to get butch haircuts.
As a straight Eagle Scout (with a Gold Palm) myself, and the father of a straight Eagle Scout, I fully support the BSA's inclusion of all boys. I don't applaud the BSA for finally doing the right thing becuase it's decades overdue and, had they done so decades ago, perhaps they would have been recognized and applauded today for being a pioneer in acceptance just like MLB is regarding desegregation in sports ("42" is a must see, BTW). I also think that all leaders who are willing to volunteer their time and effort should be accepted because as a leader they must already understand right from wrong in their own actions. In addition to being "morally straight" (which means a lot more than sexual orientation in the Scout Oath), in the Scout Law a Scout is also Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent - there's no "Judgmental" or "Homophobe" in that list! One day, the BSA might even accept girls - and I have known many of whom that would h . ...
BSA Votes to allow “Open and Avowed” Homosexuality in Scouting Yesterday, a long-standing stronghold in America for morality buckled under the weight of political correctness and the steady attacks of homosexual activists. Late yesterday afternoon, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced they had voted to change their long-standing membership policy in favor of a new policy that will require all chartered scouting units to allow open homosexuality among boys in the organization, but not adults. In making this tragic decision, the Boy Scouts have abandoned their timeless values and have turned upside-down the Scout Oath and Law. The decision is the result of personal political ideology by BSA national leaders who willingly opened the door to allow homosexual advocates to overrun an organization that stands for a code of morality that these intolerant advocates reject. The BSA is a private organization, but it has chosen to place sex and politics above its timeless principles, and the BSA will ultima ...
This is the (hopefully) last thing I have to say on people's reaction to the BSA opening membership to *** young men. People are people, objects are objects; they have no inherent influence. It is us as individuals that determine the influence they have on our lives. In high school, most of my friends smoked pot, sometimes with me present; I had goals and ambitions that I did not want to jeopardize, thus I never touched it. The Boy Scouts had a profound influence on my life. That is, they had a positive influence on me because I wanted it. *** scouts will not have have an influence on the Boy Scouts of America; the BSA doesn't teach you how to be straight or *** It teaches you how to be a MAN, a leader, a productive and effective citizen. And to think the Scout Oath needs to be altered because you think being *** isn't morally straight is taking bigotry to a whole new level. However Catholic Priests are deemed morally straight? Sure, that makes sense.
The new vision for Venturing uses youth-led adventures and a simplified program model to provide a means of developing leadership skills, reinforcing the value of service to others, and creating opportunities for personal growth in line with the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
Congratulations to PJ Hawron and Collin Clark last night on your Eagle Court of Honor. Having the opportunity to read the Eagle Charge and then answer the Eagle Challenge brought back many great memories of my days in Scouting. Your journey is not finished, it is only beginning. Continue to model your behavior after the Scout Oath and the Scout Laws, and represent the brotherhood of Eagle Scouts well. Troop 36 has been fortunate to have your leadership. Many thanks to your parents as well for being terrific leaders.
Every Boy Scout memorizes the Scout Oath, which requires him to be "morally straight." The Boy Scout Handbook says this means, among other things, that he should "respect and defend the rights of all people." It doesn't add, "unless they are *** "
From a *** Eagle Scout: "I don't think a lot of Scouts and leaders get what LGBT scouts and leaders want. *** scouts don't want to push an agenda. We don't want to force you to approve of us. We don't want you to be our friend unless you want to. We want to be honest with you, and have the ability to be Trustworthy, as the Scout Law demands. If you disapprove of us, alright. If you think we're immoral, that's completely your right. But just like at the mall, or on the street, in a church or at school, we deserve basic respect and dignity just like anyone else. That's all we ask. The chance to hike and bike, swim and shoot, earn Merit Badges and perhaps even Eagle, just like any other kid in this country, and to do so while being honest to our mentors and peers. If you can't understand that, you don't understand the Scout Oath and Law."
The Boy Scouts are talking about changing their rules to allow openly homosexual members into the organization.  This is a decision that will alter a fundamental way we define ourselves as Scouts, and needs to be something we can say we didn't rush into.    The last words of the Scout Oath sums it up perfectly for me, morally straight.  Now I'm not saying that as a pun and going to go off on 'We gotta be Straight yo!'.  What that means to me is that as a Scout, and even more so as a leader, we have an obligation to provide an example to the rest of the world through our actions.  We are meant to be a beacon the rest of this dark society can look to and say, 'See, someone hasn't caved in yet.  They still know what's right.'  Because in a world as depraved and immoral as we find ourselves in today, with rampant sex and violence everywhere, who else but a Scout can you expect to have the strength of character to take a stand for our children?   I know I'll get arguments that, 'that's being a bigot', ...

Today the Boy Scouts after being pressed by Oboma will decide if *** LEADERS should be allowed in scouts!! Now the Scout Oath is to be "Morally Straight". I'm sorry but you can't be Morally Straight and *** !! I don't want my son going to camps with *** leaders. Oboma your STUPID!!
Constitutional Crisis – Big Money Activists have Boy Scouts ready to abandon values, First Amendment Rights Will Be Lost. We must act now to defend our God-Given rights, as confirmed by the United States Constitution, under attack as never before. The rights Freely to Associate, and to Free Exercise of Religion are both at risk right now. The Boy Scouts of America National Executive Board will be considering changing the policy of barring openly *** leaders at their meeting Feb. 6. They are considering leaving any such policy to sponsoring organizations. Ending the national policy will simply shift the attack to local Councils. The Supreme Court upheld the ban in the case of Boy Scouts of America v. Dale 530 US 640 in 2000, finding such policy proper in a private association when "the presence of that person affects in a significant way the group's ability to advocate public or private viewpoints.” Those viewpoints, in Scouting, are the Scout Oath and all twelve points of the Scout Law. After the ...
I am a lifelong Scout and Scouter. I care DEEPLY about the BSA. From the day my dad turned me upside down to pin on my Bobcat badge, to the day I did the same to my son, to decades latter when I served as Business Director for my local camp summer program, and all the good and bad times in between. But two years ago, I became so disappointed that the National Council would allow the total co-option and take over of the BSA by the narrow-minded ideology of a particular sliver of fundementalist Christians that I could no longer abide by the policy and feel that I was abiding by the Scout Oath and Law. The current policy of bigiotry and discrimination is in direct conflict with the Aims of Scouting. I am a straight, white, married, middle aged man. And incresingly, it was absolutely obvious that the National Council was so scared of these fundementalist Christians that they failed at courage. It takes courage to tell them that Scouting isn't exclusively for them. It takes courage and integrity to be inclusiv ...

As a lifelong Scouter, I hope you will join me in reclaiming the BSA from the Christian Fundementalists that give such a bad name to Christians and Scouting. It is time for the BSA to live up to the Scout Oath and Law.
With the Boy Scouts of America policy change debate going on - it got me thinking of what is "morally straight" which is in the Scout Oath. I need to continue this quest for knowlegde and understanding, but what I'm gathering is that morals are set by people and change by society's standards. I thought that morality was biblically-based, and I believe it still is if you are a believer in the Way, God outlined very specific "moral" and "immoral" behaviors. For our current US society which is getting farther and farther from the Way, the definitions of "moral" and "immoral" are very much different. Am I on the right track here?
Seems reasonable to me. IMO - This would be putting the Scout Oath & Law into practice. For us Christians, it...
Though I'm sure this subject will upset some, as a former Boy Scout I am concern of the direction they are going. By considering their intention to compromise, they are going against their Scout Oath - 'Duty to God and Country, Duty to Others, Duty to Self'. Though this change would not affect 'Duty to Others', cause we are all should help others no matter the issue; but 'Duty to God and Country' is being affected. Can't provide 'Duty to God' if you are going against what He has taught (it is in the Bible - check Romans 1:18-32 to start); or 'Duty to Self' if you are not truly taking care of your body or staying morally straight (not compromising your values). Sadly, we are compromising our values daily and making laws to hold those compromises intact. Eventually we will compromise our freedom and our country, and wonder what happened.
Celebrate Scout Sunday with us this coming Sunday, Feb. 3. A Psalm for Scouts and Scouters The Lord God is our Great Scoutmaster who provides all our needs. He lets us camp in forests tall and meadows green. He leads us on trails besides waters deep and still, brooks babbling, streams rushing, and rivers raging. He restores our bodies, minds and souls, even as we observe the eagle soaring to greater heights above. He encourages the Eagle Scout in his upward climb. He teaches Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers to live the Scout Oath and Law. Even though the trails may lead through dark valleys with towering mountains, we are courageous because he leads us onward. He continually blesses us with food for mind and body. Even when our enemies dislike or distrust us, he blesses us with the gifts of love and forgiveness. Surely, his goodness and mercy will sustain us all the days of our lives. And, when we climb the final trail through the awesome pass that leads to the Great Councilfire, we s ...
Sound the Alarm. It's a sad day for America! Another of its great institutions are falling victim to political correctness. The Boy Scouts of America have announced its intention to change its membership policy. If approved (and its reported nationally that it will be): "This would mean there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation, and the charted organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with each organization's mission, principles, or religious beliefs." This is very disappointing. The Boys Scout of America had been one of the last great bastions against Political Correctness. Where will all of this end.too many freedoms are being given up in the name of political correctness. The question now is how will you rewrite the Scout Oath or will you just do away with oaths. As the Father of two Eagle Scouts and former Scout Master, I will also be proud of my sons and the hundred+ Scouts that I mentored over the past ...
Methods of Scouting Ideals The ideals of Boy Scouting are spelled out in the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, the Scout motto, and the Scout slogan. The Boy Scout measures himself against these ideals and continually tries to improve. The goals are high, and as he reaches for them, he has some control over what and who he becomes. Patrols The patrol method gives Boy Scouts an experience in group living and participating citizenship. It places responsibility on young shoulders and teaches boys how to accept it. The patrol method allows Scouts to interact in small groups where members can easily relate to each other. These small groups determine troop activities through elected representatives. Outdoor Programs Boy Scouting is designed to take place outdoors. It is in the outdoor setting that Scouts share responsibilities and learn to live with one another. In the outdoors the skills and activities practiced at troop meetings come alive with purpose. Being close to nature helps Boy Scouts gain an appreciation for ...
Scouts, Leaders, Parents, and Fans; This page is meant to act as, in essence, a continuation of the Troop Meeting experience. This means that while posting, the Scout Oath and Law should be kept in mind. Don't post anything here that you wouldn't say at a Troop Meeting.
The Winter Court of Honor is on Monday, December 10th. I understand the Santa will be visiting with all the Scouts that have followed the Scout Oath and Law and will have a special gift. Lumps of coal for the Scouts who weren't good little boys. We look forward to a great dinner of chicken, pasta, salad, rolls, and dessert. We'll be passing out recognition for Scout Expo, Eternal Flame, Pinnacles National Monument, Mt. Wittenberg, merit badges, leadership, attendance, and rank advancement. Crew 380 has some special recognition too. See you on Monday!

Let me see if I have this right…..The Boy Scouts of America banned *** from joining, BUT it’s ok to cover up and dismiss Scoutmasters accused of molesting! I’m not saying Boy Scouts are horrible, I know a couple of Eagle Scouts who are incredible young men. However, Scout Oath & Law “to be morally straight, clean in thought, word and deed” Yep you’re keeping that Oath by covering up all these incidents and teaching a form of hatred. My son will never be a scout! This *** parent will teach him to be a respectful, kindhearted, strong, morally correct, and loving. Badges….we don’t need no stinking badges!
If you don't believe in the principles contained in the Scout Oath & Law, then don't expect to be given Eagle.
I signed it. Things have got to change. And it needs to start somehow. You can be *** serve in the military, defend American's freedom, die for this country, but you cannot be an Eagle Scout? It's disgusting and these people should be ashamed of themselves. It shouldn't be about what you are or who you sleep with. Being an Eagle Scout is about character, discipline, leadership, integrity, and compassion. Apparently, BSA's National Headquarters is saying if you're *** you don't have any of these qualities. This kid, and any other kid who works his butt off fulfilling all the requirements, putting in the time, effort, and dedication needed for this award, deserves it no matter what his preference is. Being "morally straight" does not mean they have to be "straight," just to keep on an ethical and moral path in life. NOWHERE in the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto, or Scout Slogan does it say, "a Scout will be Straight!" Wake up National!!! Would you rather have kids hiding in the closet, bei ...
6 of us went to the State Fair to demonstrate the Boy Scout ropes course for TV. Somehow we talked our way onto the fair grounds where we managed to park in the livestock exhibitors' lot. We also did an interview for radio. The MC spotted me in the crowd and called me up to talk about scouting. Johnny Her had to give the Scout Oath' which he did with his usual charm and grace -- same way he sells all that fruit.

The volunteer-led task forces supporting the 2011-2015 National Council Strategic Plan’s Goal 411, after considerable deliberation, have recommended moving to the use of the Scout Oath and Law for all BSA programs. This change would primarily impact Cub Scouts and Venturing.
I would do the same if this issue and the hypocrisy of the conflict between the Scout Oath and offering a Buddhist and Hindu religious medal. I wasn't aware of it until today, but the BSA apparently has not recognized the two Unitarian Universalist medals for over a decade because of the churches disapproval of BSA's stance on homosexuality. I am proud of the skills I learned as a Scout but not of the organization.
I recently had the great pleasure..one of the few associated with getting older...to attend the 50th Anniversary celebration of BSA Troop 450 at its long home in Severna Park, Maryland. The gathering took place in the school hall of St. John the Evangelist RC Parish..the original and continuing sponsor. I was there because I had been, with Andy Wagner, one of the first two scouts taken into the Troop in 1962. The hall was filled with dozens of scouts and an impressive number of uniformed adult leaders...and countless other adults who serve the Troop in many other ways. The Scouts were all the things I remember promising long ago to try to be in the Scout Oath...though I don't recall Enthusiastic as part of the Scout Law.they seem to have added that on their own. It was a joy to be int he presence of so many happy, dedicated, respectful, and engaging young people...and those who were once young but still serve our Youth. Anne Arundel County Councilman *** Ladd presented a certificate to mark this ...
