UK Boy Scouts will admit atheists

Timothy A. writes:

Tolerant liberals are not willing to tolerate a private organization that requires an oath that acknowledges the existence of God, so the Boy Scouts in the UK are preparing an alternative oath so that atheists can join and lead the organization (for 40 years, the UK Scouts have allowed alternative forms of the oath for Muslims and members of other religions.) The founder of the Scouting movement, Robert Baden-Powell, listed atheism alongside other social evils such as gambling and excessive drinking.
