A Scout is Reverent.......He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion. To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed Religious Emblems Programs.
The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these Programs and allows the Emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the Programs.
