Clergy and Scouting (continued)

III. The worldview of the clergy

A. Theological/Ideological

Clergy view the world in terms of their doctrine and values. Religion provides explanations for how the world is and what it should be, and declares answers for how to make it that way. Their openness to Scouting depends upon their ability to fit it into their usual way of looking at the world.Collapse )
