Political Questions

The Boy Scouts of America shall not, through its governing body or through any of its officers, the chartered councils, or members, involve the Scouting movement in any question of a political character. However, this shall not be interpreted to prevent the teaching of the ideals of patriotism and good citizenship as required to fulfill the Boy Scouts of America's purpose. This policy shall also not limit the freedom of thought or action of any official or member as an individual.
