I understand he took an oath.

But maybe at the time he took the oath he wasn't nearly as secure in his atheist beliefs as he may be now. Or maybe he did believe in God at the time he took that oath, but over time his beliefs changed.

How'd the people find out that he was an atheist, anyway?

I know he took an oath, but okay, they found out he was an atheist-he's still a good person, he still did a lot of good stuff for the community and for the troop and all that...can't the people in there just let the matter drop, just leave him alone?

You take an oath to believe in God..
Like he did..

The next person dosent/never believed in God but now DEMANDS to be let in because of the Athesist #1..

Do you see the pt?
Boy Scouts profess a belief in God
Its still a private instituion..
Therefore find an institution where you are comfortable, instead making an institution conform to you..
Make sense?

Insulting to women as well, assuming that our delicate and weak natures must be protected from the ravaging and sex-hungry impulses of all men everywhere.
