Should atheists be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts of America?Posted by: arcuttle
I am an Eagle Scout who, after leaving the program, now identifies as an agnostic. With pressure to allow homosexuals into scouting (and as a result, the change in rulings), the topic of atheists being allowed in scouting came to light. In my personal opinion, religion did not have an impact on my success in scouting, and I'd like to hear opinions, from scouts, scouters, and anyone with thoughts on the matter.

Yes because just because someone has a different belief than you does not make them any different. nor does a black from white, just because their skin colour is different does not mean they cannot participate in regular activities. Atheists are no different from christian, the only difference is their religion. It should not matter what religion they practice, everyone should have equal rights.
I was/am a scout and religion never affected how good of a scout I was.
Why not? I mean they don't have to participate in prayer, but seriously at that age, almost everyone believes in God.
We should do something with the boy scouts. Kids are getting molested constantly in the boy scouts.
