Both atheists and homosexuals are not allowed a place in Boy Scouts and should anyone find out what they are while they are there, they will be turned away. Apparently these Christians can't accept anyone who isn't a Christian.

I think athiest will never be a good scout, so no use of argument. Maybe a pledge in hell for life is appropriate. But wait, I am talking about athiest who do violence, crimes and other wrong evil conducts in violation of the holy words. A belief will always be a belief needed to be respected, unless put it into action, then its another conversation.
