Boy Scouts and Civil Religion

I have a post arguing that the Boy Scouts of America are unlikely to drop their basic theism at any point in the near future at the "First Thoughts" blog.

    Very nice.

    Will First Thoughts be a regular gig?

    I'm only a guest blogger; the invitation is currently indefinite, though, so it's an option as long as they don't throw me out or change their policy on guestblogging. However, their stylesheet drives me crazy; I find it difficult to conform to it, just because the choices are (with a few exceptions) almost diametrically opposite to my own habits. So I'm pretty sure it will be more occasional than regular.

    That would be maddening.

    We look forward to seeing you bring some class to the FT joint, but don't go too mainstream, or you'll forget the little people. :)
