So a subject came up at Troop meeting tonight (between the Woodbadgers of course) - is there an “and” before Reverent in the Scout Law. Thought it would be simple answer, but not sure.

It is written on my daughter’s scout book with and.

as typical the first scouting.org website I pulled did not have the “and” LOL

oh do not get me started on this topic and the stuff related to it

You all are lucky that I can’t remember where I put my handbook!

If you take it with the rules of grammar, the end of a list is marked with and. So with reverent being the final point after a list of 11 others you would say and.

Scoutbook says A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. so obviously the and is included :smile:


I try to avoid “Mandela Effect” topics whenever possible… :joy:
