Scout laws relevant this election year
While reflecting on the recent death of a friend from 58 years ago who, as a Boy Scout, worked with me to earn our Eagle Scout and God and Country awards, I noticed how relevant the 12 Scout Laws are for this election year. Our leaders had extreme moral integrity and character and taught what being the best type of men involved.
Our current manure spreaderin-chief is not any of these things: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean or Reverent. The Dumpster’s backup plan may even be producing “Real Housewives of Mar-a-Lago.”
It’s frightening today’s youth must see adults of all stripes still supporting this reality show con artist extraordinaire. Will they learn it’s OK to cheat, steal, bully and lie to get their way … and if caught, to never apologize, but always double and triple down by blaming others?
I’m a spiritual person with many flaws, but if religious worshipers can still justify giving this version of the Antichrist their votes, I no longer consider myself one of them. My faith in God is unwavering, but I’m taking a selfie of myself losing my religion. See … that’s me in the corner.
