Would the Scouts Reconsider Nudity?

This week news reports explained that the Boy Scouts of America is re-considering its ban on gay scouts and scoutmasters after decades. If approved by the national board, local chartering organizations such as schools, churches, and civic clubs would be free to admit or refuse membership based upon sexual orientation.

Does this mean that we could one day see a change in Scout policy on things like skinny-dipping too?  Well, probably not in the near future.  But it does show that mindsets and rules do evolve. We can only hope that exchanging swim suits for birthday suits becomes an option over time.

Then we could go back to the way swimming was once upon a time.
