The author is, of course, completely correct in his analysis of the First Amendment. For a more detailed assessment of the question, and of the ACLU's 85 years of treacherous assault on American religious freedom and other values, see Leftwing Word Games & Religious Freedom
Of course the ACLU particularly hates the Boy Scouts, because of another aspect of the ongoing Leftist assault on our values. (See The Boy Scouts Of America & A Leftwing Agenda.)
Ladies and Gentlemen, our world is under attack--and the greatest threat, by far, is within our midst.

The BSA is slowly going left these days. They are big into environmentalism and "low impact" camping, have dumbed down the BSA Handbook and made the requirements simpler. tons of pictures, compare and contrast one from today to a book from the 1960's. They took out stalking and tracking, animal tracks, tree identification. When I was a Scout we had to cook on wood fires started by ONLY 2 matches. Now they use propane stoves, that doesn't teach them about survival. They also put in an escape clause for certain requirements due to being classified "handicapped" with all the special ed. and ADHD classifications that's about 1/4 of most scouts.
They now are "looking" for women and minorities to serve on their boards and to be included in certain committees. In may councils, the wood badge course now has their token women and minorities as well as the silver beaver award, there always has to be just one.
I just hope they hold on to traditional values and not give in to the left on that.
