    Fort Worth Catholic Bishop endorses Troops of St. George

    Troops of St. George is not scouting, so it is not Catholic scouting.

    I don't know in what sense Troops of St. George is supposed to be an "alternative" to the BSA ... it's not scouting, as they will tell you if you ask them.
  3. Typically they express concern, promise to review, and then decide that whatever it was is OK.

    BSA Executive Salaries

    Directors of non-profit corporations making nothing is normal. https://www.councilofnonprofits.org/tools-resources/can-board-members-be-paid
  5. It doesn't have any authority to speak for the Catholic Church, no. In my opinion it is basically an arm of the BSA (a trademark search will show that the BSA owns the trademark to the organization's name); it doesn't work with non-BSA scouting associations (not even the Girl Scouts of the USA) or recognize them in any way.

    The insignia (badge or patch) that is on the beret.

    No, actually, what B-P actually did do matters much much more than what you or I or anyone else thinks he might do today.

    Scouts Canada is about 1/4 the size it was in 1965 (its peak) and 1/3 the size it was in 1990.

    Is BSA Sustainable?

    Those are all the hardest things though - especially the last.
  10. It's almost like boys and girls are different.
  11. Only this time, they're not going to be able to put the toothpaste back in the tube.
  12. I'm sure that scouts in mixed units can do whatever they need to do, the real question is whether the individual character can be brought out in each in such units. I'm really skeptical about that.
  13. Yeah wouldn't want to say that WOSM and its member associations are bad even though many have made a hash of the Law and the Promise, would we?

    Daughter of Eagle Scout Perspective

    I didn't realize it either until yesterday! I did know that college credit seems to matter more than whether or not one is an Eagle Scout or Girl Scout Gold Awardee.

    Gold Award holders are treated the same as Eagle Scouts at least with respect to military enlistment - both can enlist at pay grade E-2 (Army, Air Force, Marines) or E-3 (Navy).
