Never afraid of making complete arses of themselves, the National Secular Society and the British Humanist Association have targeted the Scouting oath for a legal action. Let us be clear about this - the only boys likely to be put off joining the Scouts by the wording of this oath are the thoroughly indoctrinated offspring of militant atheist prigs (and who wants them in the Scouts?). If God has no existence or validity, what's the problem, guys? This is just the usual anti-religious grandstanding, and one more splashy drip in the relentless drip drip drip of secularisation. Anyway, the whole thing misses the obvious point - the ones being discriminated against here are republicans, who might well balk at swearing to do their duty by the Queen.
