I agree, this is way off the OP, sorry. We can start a new thread to discuss it if you think we should.
Scouting endorses no religion over another.
This is my understanding, except that while scouting doesn't endorse one religion over another, you need to have some
religion. "Not religious" is not an option.
Aside from the cases Drew mentioned, it is hard to misinterpret.
A - One requirement to join scouting is to "Understand and agree to live by the Scout Oath or Promise, Law, motto, and slogan, and the Outdoor Code."
B - The oath includes "To do my duty to God"
C - The scout law includes "A Scout is . . . reverent."
D - The scouts explain reverent as "A Scout is reverent, he is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion."
Based on that, I don't see any room for the non-religious. You can't do your duty to or be reverent toward something you don't believe in.
