But the Boy Scouts are not secular. In the past few year they have kicked out members and leaders for the sole reason that those members and leaders were atheists, which is utterly despicable behaviour. My Eagle Scout medallion does not have the same shine that it once did for me.

This came as a shock to me. I used to be a scout in the early sixties in the uk and religion was never an issue. No prayers or hymns.

I found this scandalous case while googling. It seems to be a case of atheism not allowed, at least in the USA and UK; probably other countries as well.
