Boy scouts evil? God must be too!

Boy Scouts will have to find another location for their next gathering as a federal judge recently ruled that the Pentagon can no longer financially support the event.

A lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois contends that the Defence Department's sponsorship violates the First Amendment because the Scouts require members to swear an oath of duty to God.

On Tuesday, the Senate took a step toward allowing U.S. military bases to continue to host Boy Scouts events. By 98-0, the Senate approved the measure in a provision that's part of a bill setting Defence Department policy for next year.

In exchange for getting use of the army training base, the Scouts have spent about $20 million US on base improvements that include road paving and plumbing upgrades. The army says it uses the Jamboree as an opportunity to train personnel in crowd control, communications and other logistical skills.

Sounds like the boy scouts are infiltrating sensitive target in the US (and Canada).
Has anyone checked them out? Just who do they work for? This "God" they swear an oath to sounds an awful lot like Allah...
