Chicago Tribune (Sept 25, 1990) says:
"'On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and
my country,' goes the Boy Scout oath. The Boy Scout law
also invokes the deity. A Scout, it says, is 'reverent'
toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and he
respects the beliefs of others.'
'If a boy does not subscribe to these precepts, he cannot
be a Scout," a spokeswoman at the Boy Scouts' national
headquarters in Dallas explained."
