Instead of being mauled, I spent the evening with Christian gun owners AKA Cub Scout parents.
I kept my mouth shut.
I remember a friend of L's who was working on his Eagle. When I learned his father was atheist (and family not religious), I asked him how he reconciled that with scouting. He credited his wife.
"One nation under Pam" was what he would say instead of "God," b/c Pam ruled his world and he worshipped her. It used to work well with P, but now I need a substitution and I think "chocolate" is too long.
