Who Can't Join BSA?

Our troop (and pack/post) has had members who are Hindu.
I always wondered about their eligibility, but because none
of them refused to learn/repeat the Scout Oath, etc, I didn't
question their membership. Besides, they all attended the
Christian school that sponsors our units. Can anyone state
with certainty that they are not eligible to join?
I checked the Insignia Guide and did not see a religious emblem
for Hindus. However, there are emblems for some other
religions that might be suspect on the the grounds of not having
a divine being or neither affirming or denying a supreme reality.
Also, what is a Wiccan?
