NYTimes Letter Watch

Today's Installment: Atheist Scouts

This letter writer thinks that Darrell Lambert should quit the Scouts and start his own organization, "one that actually respects the beliefs of others and encourages independent thought."

There's some good and bad here. First of all, I'm glad to see that this writer doesn't think that the Scouts should be legally compelled to change their views. At the same time, though, there's that little comment about "independent thought".

I don't know about our letter writer, but the characteristic I desire the most when it comes to my thinking is truth.
