America's finest youth organization that provides guidance and fun for millions of fine young men. It taught me outdoors skills like firebuilding and knot tying that I would never learn anywhere else and no else outside of scouts knows, and really valuable life skills like citizenship, finances, and communications. The Boy Scouts adhere to an oath of morals and guidelines that instill in its members a sense of pride, individuality, responsibility, and leadership, to name a few. People who do not adhere to these guidelines are not welcome; this has brought trouble to the Boy Scouts, but if you don't believe in God, you can't be Christian either, and if you don't believe in killing you can't join the Army. We welcome anyone who believes and practices what we do. I am an Eagle Scout, and this is one of my greatest accomplishments that I am most proud of and Scouts greatly affected my life. Outsiders will not understand the true spirit of Boy Scouts if they let society and its biased ideas toward Boy Scouts influence their opinions.
