Taking God out of the Scouts.

Sam Jones write for theguardian.com that “From 1 January next year, atheists yearning to slip on a woggle and embrace the self-reliant yet altruistic philosophy of the Scouts will find the organisation well prepared.”

And furthermore, “After more than a century, members will no longer have to promise – on their honour – to do their duty to God when they make their pledge to the movement. They will, however, still be required to promise to uphold Scout values, observe its law, do their duty to the Queen and help others.”

Why???? This is like when people wanted to take “one nation under God” out of our pledge of allegiance. This does not affect me personally, at all. But it still bothers me and I do not agree with this decision at all.
