In the previous thread a scouter whom I respect very much, made reference to the fact that in his lodge Ordeals are no longer called ordeals but rather " service weekends". Apparently in an effort to make them sound less hazing or ominous to the new generation of snowflakes
If I recall correctly his new lodge advisor managed to somehow ram that past the LEC.
Given the current PC lunacy, I can only assume that this " water everything down stupidity " will soon be at our door as well.
I know the scouts pretty well and I'll bet a steak dinner that their response will be short and thoroughly unscoutlike.
But it is a rare chief indeed who has the sheer nerve to tell someone 20 years his elder " No, we are not doing that. Shut up and sit down"
Ok maybe not in those words, but you get the idea
So I figure "my boys" are going to need support.
Ps. Do we need to change the word ordeal to service weekend wherever it occurs in the ceremonies now?
Lets see... " bringing tokens of a struggle, a service weekend swiftly approching...
Doesn't have the same ring to it somehow
