The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Knowing the origin of the Boy Scouts as I do, I imagine they had no problem - tobacco was part of the transition to manhood.
Baden-Powell was literally creating a paramilitary training organization for city boys, based on the age 8-14 year old boys who voluntarily served as scouts, messengers, and spies at the Siege of Mafeking . Fascinating fellow, Baden-Powell .
