BSA's incessant fiddling with everything is not a sign of bold, serious action or bringing Scouting up to date; rather, it indicates a neurotic need to establish dominance within the organization while demonstrating a lack of confidence in our core product.How can I be so sure? Well, I've seen BSA do this before. And I'm seeing The United Methodist Church do it now. It goes like this:
1. We recognize that we're declining (or, outright dying).But what if we gave up control and went back to what we did best? Do we have sufficient faith in God and confidence in what we do to go that route?
2. We realize that we've got to do something.
3. So, we think, Somebody needs to seize control and redo everything.
