Together, the Scout Oath and Law form the general Code of Conduct for Boy Scouts. As taken from the Boy Scout Handbook, 11th edition, the Scout Law is as follows:
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
Whenever you hear something negative about the BSA, you are hearing about people who choose to ignore the Scout Law. The BSA is not an organization of bigots and liers. Make no mistake, these are NOT real scouts, but impostors and assholes who sully the name. I am proud to be a scout. If everyone in the world followed the Oath and Law, the world would be a wonderful place.
