    • I'm not sure what you mean. How does a business directly benefit any unit? Is your CO the PD? If so, go ahead and ask and just let them know you're fine if they say no. They may have money set aside for making donations and they might think it's a great idea.
    • And you are completely welcome to that opinion and I don't judge you based on such, but I hope you acknowledge that it is opinion. Even if your faith proscribed or had a specific doctrine on proper attire for men and women (I am not aware that you faith does but some do), then I would hope you would no more want to force such behaviors on all scouts (not just those in your unit) than you would want Mennonites to force their own clothing opinions/doctrines onto all scouts. If I understand your faith correctly, being attracted to someone of the same sex is not a sin, but acting on it is (much like premarital stuff is with many faiths). It does not appear that cross-dressing or any other form of "platonic" gender dysphoria is an actual sin but I freely admit I am no expert (or even a layman) but Elder Dallin seems to suggest that Mormons are starting to view gender and birth sex as two different things. http://archive.sltrib.com/article.php?id=2112602&itype=CMSID Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles states, "This question concerns transgender, and I think we need to acknowledge that while we have been acquainted with lesbians and homosexuals for some time, being acquainted with the unique problems of a transgender situation is something we have not had so much experience with, and we have some unfinished business in teaching on that." Lastly, I am sure you are familiar with your own Brigham Morris Young's history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B._Morris_Young Brigham Morris Young (January 18, 1854–February 20, 1931 (aged 77)) was one of the founders of the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association (YMMIA), the predecessor to the Young Men program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). ... Shortly after returning to Utah, Young began publicly performing as a cross-dressing singer under the pseudonym Madam Pattirini.[1][2][3] Young performed as Pattirini in north and central Utah venues from 1885 to the 1900s. He could produce a convincing falsetto, and many in the audience did not realize that Pattirini was Young. ----------------------- If the founder of your own Young Men movement was a cross-dresser for at least 15 years, then I would certainly think the church would allow for some grace on this issue.
    • A well working and organized committee will make the scoutmasters job easier not more difficult. A good scoutmaster should just hire you have a strong and organized committee chair. Any scoutmaster that once a week committee to ensure no one challenges his opinion is a warning sign in my book.
    • Patrol boxes for each patrol with all the cooking gear, stoves, etc. Tents are checked out as needed by each patrol. Scouts have their own sleep systems and packs. We have dutch ovens, bear containers and some misc gear in the trailer as well.
