Format: Paperback
I am a 48 yr old Arrow of Light and Eagle Scout, Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow, current Den Leader and District Trainer, former Unit Commissioner and COPE Instructor, with approaching 20 years in the program. (Which only means I been around a while and may have something to say worth saying.)
I like much of what I read in this book.

1. I agree with Jay Malmstrom that Scouting is not and has never been a Christian organization. However, the BSA has _always_ insisted that all Scouts acknowledge a Higher Being. It does not have to be God as I understand God to be (a great relief to the Christian Scientists, I am sure.) Our Promise and our Law require at least a superficial statement of belief in this Higher Power and at least token participation in some form of religion. Let us not be carried away on the wings of conservative religio-political fervor. Scouting is not an Evangelical Christian nor Conservative Republican movement. It may, at times, share common goals with either, but it has room for my Jewish, Muslim, Hindu brothers and even Roman Catholic, Baptist, and Lutheran neighbors. The point is that with regard to faith, there is room in Scouting's big tent for all people of good will. However, militant Athiests have started to pick a fight with us. They would assert their right to be free of religion to the point that we who believe anything can no longer feel free to practice and discuss our faith in public.

2. Our disagreements over homosexuality are more complex than can be presented in a book such as this. Hans does as good a job as he can to lay out the issues. Reviewer Jay Malmstrom would draw the distiction "between homosexuality and pedophilism" and complain that the BSA is alone in it's confusion about the two.

Format: Paperback
Zeiger, a 19-year-old college student has done a splendid job of tracing the liberal assault on the Boy Scouts of America. He points out that all other scouting programs that have allowed themselves to be separated from the guiding principles and morals present when they were founded have floundered and ceased to be a dynamic force in building tomorrow's leaders out of today's youth. I love his references to Churchill on the place of Scouts in the future of Western Civilization.

The book is sobering in that it paints the stark reality that BSA programming is being injured because of the costs required to defend themselves on two simple matters of self-determinination, including reference to "God" in their motto.

I would almost get a little discouraged were it not for two facts: (a) Zeiger gives practical ways we can support the BSA and (b) the fact that an intelligent and articulate 19-year-old is sounding a clarion call for America to return to its moral roots in all areas of public life! Very encouraging.

33 of 48 people found the following review helpful By Joseph on February 27, 2006
Format: Paperback
Hans Zeiger, a 19-year-old Hillsdale College student, writes a fascinating history and social commentary on the Boy Scouts. Documenting the unchanging, solid values upon which the Scouts were established, he delves into the honorable past and current attacks on the Boy Scouts.

In the face of a modern-day assault, he writes, "honor has been nearly forgotten by a generation of Americans...products of a morally relativistic culture." Though never a Boy Scout myself, I can see where Zeiger is coming from. He makes a good argument about the necessity for the Scouts to retain their traditional honor, which he believes has been thrown by the wayside by a current "relativistic" generation.

As a fellow Seattleite (Hans Zeiger is too), I have read the attacks by the gays, atheists, and even the Seattle Times (though masked) against the Boy Scouts. Their policy is to constantly criticize and whine about the Boy Scouts in hope that they will someday give in to their demands for gay and atheist Scout leaders. Living here in Seattle, I have already heard enough of their "progressive" opinion. But Hans Zeiger writes from a different perspective. Even if you are in disagreement, it is refreshing to hear the other side of the argument.

Yes, he may be unabashedly conservative, but at least he doesn't try to hide it and feign neutrality. I like his honest, upfront style of writing, and it makes for a very good read in "Get off my Honor".

Format: Paperback
First off, while I am a long time scout and scouter, and do not like how some groups have been attacking the BSA, I don't fully agree with the author.

One glaring issue I have with the book is that the author needs to do better research. Too often he used second/third hand works instead of going to the source. If you're going to quote B-P, read his works and cite them, not someone else who quotes him from another source. I also saw several area in which the author is not knowledgable about something (he is very ignorant of the originals of Girl Scouts/Girl Guides) and should have done his home work.

Required reading if you have a son in Scouts. Written at age 20, Hans Zeiger is now a Washington State Representative and active proponent of Scouting.

I have never read such a well written, engaging and researched book by an author so young. It covers a very controversial issue in Scouting today. This timely book is a must read for any Scouting family.
