Tell the Boy Scouts of America to Accept Atheists

Boy Scout Atheist

"The Boy Scouts of America maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God."

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has gained national attention for its longtime policy of excluding gay and trans boys and adult leaders, a policy which has changed in recent years. However, there is another discriminatory policy that stands firmly in place that no one is talking about: atheists are explicitly excluded.  

It's time to tell the Boy Scouts of America: no more religious tests. An atheist can be as upstanding and valuable a citizen as any other boy or girl of faith. Stand with us by adding your voice to the petition and share it with others so we can get to 10,000 signatures.
