    • Big week in the bankruptcy case.  Feb 9th and 10th will be the appeals hearing.  As mentioned, this will not be over zoom so we will have to wait to hear reporters take (unless any forum members attend).  
    • Thats incorrect but do as you please.  Everything in scouting nowadays is only a suggestion and it really doesn't matter what suggestions are followed or interpreted.   As long as noone gets a bad feeling and gets an award for showing up everything is fine.  I would encourage you to research the origins of the customs and traditions of the OA and that organization has the same rules concerning membership status and dues.
    • What Matt said.    True story:   At the local University of Scouting one year, I ran across a Scout who wore four medals : I recognized his Eagle, the  God and Country, the Ner Tamid, and the Ad Altare Dei...   These were the Methodist Church,  Jewish and Catholic awards, respectably.  As we ate lunch, I said, "you  know, I have to ask how you come to wear those three religious awards.?"   He said that his mom was Jewish, his dad Catholic and his Troop was sponsored by a Methodist Church. He said that when he asked about earning the awards, his father's priest, his mom's  rabbi and the minister at the Troop 's sponsor didn't  seem to mind the rest of his family arrangements.....   Refer them to : http://www.scoutingbsa.org/programs/awards/religious_emblems/Religious_Emblem_Information.html 
    • Welcome to the forum, @FirstClass . As each religious organization creates their own requirements my guess is the scout can either keep wearing the old award, or not. And if they want the new one then they'll have to earn it first.
    • Hello there, I'm not quite sure where to post this question so I'll post it here for now. I'll keep my question short as to quicken reading time. What does a scout do if they convert to a different faith? Say they earned the award as a Christian but they now practice Buddhism; do they need to do the program over again or can they simply switch the pin to the one corresponding faith they now follow?
