The Christian Institute reports that, unlike their counterparts “across the pond,” British Boy Scouts may soon end discrimination against atheist members.
The Scout Association is considering adopting a new “atheist” promise for the first time in its 105-year history.
Currently, in order to join the Scouts youngsters must pledge: “On my honour, I promise that I will do my best, To do my duty to God and to the Queen, To help other people, And to keep the Scout Law.”
And the [Girl] Guides are also thinking of rewriting their promise to love God and serve the Queen.
Don’t expect the American Scouts to follow suit any time soon.
