Depends on the troop. Mine had a number of open atheists, including myself. The only time I ever felt pressure was when I was with OA instead of my troop. When the troop would recite the law, we'd all -not just the atheists- put a loud sarcastic twist on the word 'reverent'. After a few years of that, we got a new very conservative assistant scout master who took offense and made us stop. He also complained about my openly gay friend and harassed him until he quit. I quit then too.

Well, yeah, but this was just down the road from the council headquarters and being gay is against the policy so.... I was actually the SPL when I quit. I just couldn't take how the whole tone of the troop had suddenly shifted. Basically all the older scouts left at the same time. I don't even think they had anyone left who was over star.

If you knew what your father was like, why did you come out the them? Why not wait until you were on your own already?

How did you end up there?
