I believe that atheists should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts of America. I will debate against anyone, as long as they are not biased a/o trolling.

Whoops sorry, I live in Australia where we have a slightly different version of the Boy Scouts. Just realised it was the American ones, whom I have no right to comment on given I know hardly anything about them.

Please disregard the previous comment

But boy scouts as nothing to do with religion anyway.
It would be like saying should Christians be allowed in the Boy Scout.

By the way, while I wasn't atheist at the time, and am now, I'm an eagle scout.

So, I am an atheist who is an eagle scout.

By the way, now that I thought about it, you might want to word this as "should atheists be allowed to be open about their atheism in Boy Scouts of America."

Technically atheists are allowed currently, as long as they stay in the closet.

Oh, I was thinking you were going to be con for some reason. I agree with your position though.
