Diversity Merit Badge?

Recommended Posts

Has ANYONE heard of this or have any idea what it is? Our Scoutmaster is insisting it exists and is trying to find a counselor for it.


It is not American Cultures. It is not Disability Awareness. It is not any of the Citizenships.


I've Googled it, but there doesn't seem to be one that ever existed. So I'm assuming it's a different name.

"BSA has repeatedly stated its opposition to diversity."


No it hasn't.


The BSA has long be diverse, in times when other groups weren't.


The BSA has welcomed people of a wide range of ethnic backgrounds (blacks, american indians, jews, etc) when they weren't welcome in general society.


The BSA has welcomed people of a wide range of faiths (catholic, jewish, buddhist, muslim, etc) again, when they weren't always welcome in general society.


Diversity, however, is not and should not be a primary principle or value that needs to be pushed, as some seem to think.
