UK Scouts Can Remove God.......if needed

This is an absolute epic failure by the UK Scouts.  Read why here and then read below.
There is no religious "side" of the [Scouting] movement.  The whole of it is based on religion, that is, on the realizations and service of God.  Let us, therefore, in training our Scouts, keep the higher aims in the forefront, not let ourselves get too absorbed in the steps.  Don't let the technical outweigh the moral...Our objective in the Scouting movement is to give such help as we can in bringing about God's Kingdom on Earth..... (LBP, Headquarters's Gazette, November 1920)
I understand a program that changes to fit boys but the basics are the basics.  It appears that Lord Baden Powell's Scouting program is dead or dying.
