    I never would have let them go into scouting primarily because of the ban on atheists, considering I am one. So, yeah, it's lip service to gays, but only until they turn 18, and only if they still buy into the God Scam. Not nearly enough.

    Luckily, I had girls, and, although neither of them showed much interest in scouting, they could have, since the Girl Scouts doesn't traffic in the Only Godly Heteros Need Apply bullshit.

      and in each case, (there were two) I had the thought that I was off the hook about being a future Boy Scout leader. I was relieved.

      I made sure that each of them learned all the skills and we did a lot of camping. my younger one through-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2010 ( and no, she did not see hide not hair of Governor whatshisname..). I think by the time they were in high school they were Eagle qualified.

      I truly agree that the religious requirement also has to go.
