American Samizdat

Friday, December 22, 2006. *
Six years ago, the Boy Scouts convinced the U.S. Supreme Court that their deep-seated principles gave them a constitutional right to exclude gays and atheists. Now the California Supreme Court has been asked to look at the other side of that coin - whether the Scouts are a religious organization ineligible for certain types of government aid, including dollar-a-year leases of public land.

[Article continues at link. I support the Boy Scouts of America being able to exclude anyone they want, as long as they remain a private organization. When they get tax funding, they have to play by the same rules everyone else does.]
