I am not an athiest by no streatch...
but doing duty to
God is interpreted by our beavers (Scouts age 5-7) and brownies (Guides age
keeping the world clean
picking up garbage
walking instead of driving
not killing animals
looking after family and friends
staying healthy by exorcise, eating etc...
anyway you get the picture...
We don't push religious beliefs at our youth, they are spiritual in text for
promise, scouts own etc.. but each week I ASK randomly at opening 'How did
you keep your PROMISIE" if we don't ask then they are just words right? I
get lots of great answers but never have I gotten 'By going to Church' or by
'donating my allowance to Church' they are always 'community relevant'.
And even the worst Athiest keeps his back yard clean.
