PC and the Boy Scouts

Kathleen Arnn examines the old and new versions of the Boy Scouts' handbook and her conclusions are not encouraging. An excerpt:

The old handbook spoke proudly of the chivalric tradition; the new apologizes for the antiquated example of the knights. It sandwiches a few cursory paragraphs on moral virtue between a lengthy discussion of drugs and alcohol and a section on sexual responsibility. Moral choices are reduced to healthy choices. Doing the courageous thing becomes equivalent to refusing a cigarette at a party.
