      ATHEIST SCOUT FIGHTS DECISION TO BOOT HIM

      The Chief Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts has given Eagle Scout
      Darrell Lambert about a week to decide "in his heart" if he's truly
      an atheist. If he insists on sticking to his belief that there is no
      God, the Council will terminate his membership.
      "No way" is he going to change his beliefs, says Lambert, who has
      been in scouting since he was 9 years old. "It'd be like me asking
      them to change their belief. It's not going to happen." In 2000, the
      U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Boy Scouts' right as a private
      organization to ban certain members. The Scouts exclude atheists and
      gays. The 19-year-old has earned 37 merit badges, been a
      quartermaster and three-time senior patrol leader, and now he's an
      assistant Scoutmaster and a field leader in training as part of the
      Search and Rescue Program. In his senior year in high school, he
      racked up more than 1,000 hours of community service. He doesn't
      believe in smoking or taking illegal drugs. His mom offered to take
      him out for a drink when he turns 21. But he doesn't believe in
      drinking alcohol. And he doesn't believe in God — not since the ninth
      grade. And even before then he was unsure. [e]
