UK Scouts Considering New Oath for Atheists?

I never thought God would have been taken out of our schools or from public places. But now possibly with the Boy Scouts too?!  The UK Scout Association is considering a new oath for atheists.  As this interview mentions, I too wonder if BP is rolling in his grave…


A duty to God has always been the center of this program for the past 100+ years.  Is this the right step for Scouting to “keep up with the times”?  Is this movement coming to America so that Scouting can be more “relevant” in this country too?  I’d say the world is struggling based on the declining trend to acknowledge a Divine Being in our lives.

Watch this spirited discussion on the proposed alternative to the Oath from HuffPost Live.
