Rule 6.1 Religious Policy

Rule 6.1.1 (a) The Association recognizes all religions and expects every Scout to belong to some religious denomination and to understand his duty to his own religion.
(b) Every member of the Association shall show acceptance and respect for the religious convictions of others.
Rule 6.1.2 If a Group is composed of Members of several denominations or religions, the Scout Members shall be encouraged to attend services of their own form of religion. Any form of devine service in camp shall be of the simplest character, attendance being entirely voluntary.
Rule 6.1.3 Scouts' Own Services may be held for the worship of God and to promote a fuller understanding of the significance of the Scout Promise and the Scout Law. Such services shall be regarded as being supplementary to rather than a substitute for formal attendance at the services of the individual's own form of religion.
