Some people are unaware but the boy scouts do not allow freethinkers aka nontheist to join. Like their ban on homosexuality this ban is discriminatory and should be lifted.

In addition to donations from individuals, the BSA receives extensive donations from major corporations. In 2010, their top corporate donors were, in order, Intel, Emerson, Verizon, 3M, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Pfizer, Valero, UPS, U.S. Bank, Eli Lilly, GE, and Monsanto. (Intel  and UPS cut funding to BSA in 2012)
When I refused to include God in the oath during induction (back about '81 or so) they kicked me out. I had no idea they were a religious organization at the time or I never would have tried to join (was a DEDICATED atheist up until my 30s).

While they're certainly free to do as they please, the problem is that there's really no alternative, except sometimes in very large areas. It's monopoly by demographics. In the end everyone suffers because kids have no other good options, get bent about no 'fitting in', turn inward and come back to shoot up their classmates (or at least don't become as good of citizens because they have no clubs/mentoring).
Rules like these, while within the bounds of law, are utterly immoral and decay societies.
