"A Scout is reverent." All Scouts show this by being faithful in their duty to God.
Some go further and give special service. This can qualify them for a religious emblem.
Such an emblem is not a Scouting award. It is conferred on a Scout by his religious leader.
Each faith has its own requirements for earning its emblem.
