BSA to keep discriminating against atheists

http://ffrf.org/news/action/item/16573-bsa-pl...

The BSA has been in the news lately for supposedly ending their Gay ban, but all they have done there is to allow local groups, who are mainly sponsored by churches, to continue the ban. So effectively there probably won't be a great amout of change in many areas of the country.

Quote, "BSA spokesperson Deron Smith said a change in policy toward atheists is not being considered because "Duty to God" is one of its basic principles."
A more important basic principle was to teach children principles and to provide inspiring role models. The prejudice against gays and atheists betrays everything the original scouting movement stood for.
