I was never a Scout so I'm starting from scratch here. I know that in the past the Boy Scout leadership has voiced anti-gay opinions that bother me personally, and as an Agnostic/Atheist-esque I'm quesy about the Scout's adoption of faith and God into their program. I'm also not thrilled about selling $30 bags of popcorn.
But my little guy's really excited about camping and so forth so I'm trying to decide if it would be good for him. Anyone former or current Scouts out there with an opinion, positive or negative?
