Atheist Scout given a week to declare belief
Ok, time for a good controversy again. What do guys think about this? Should this kid be kicked out?
I think this is such crap. If "higher power" is so all inclusive that it includes "Mother Nature", then doesn't it completely lose all meaning and relevance? As if enough people don't hate the Boy Scouts? I think it is a generally good organization that does a lot of really great things, but all this descension into sexual and religious preference is just so petty and I just can't understand at all. It almost sounds like the Spanish Inquisition. (ok - maybe a slight exaggeration - but nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! ) Oh, and it wasn't like he was refusing to do the scout or American pledge. It's just so bogus.
