You are a true liberty guy, aren't you , Rogue?From what Fox News is reporting, I have no problem as lifting the gay ban will leave the issue up the the local chapters.
I was an active boy scout in a troop sponsored by a Methodist church and if they do not want gays in their troop, they should have the right to do so. And if the want gays, they can do that too..
But what I object to in this piece is that the Wash. Post could not resist inserting Obama in to it. What does Obama have to do with the Boy Scouts? But the Wash. Post has to make a positive connection to help give Obama some credit for it.
Boy Scouts may reverse national ban against gays as members, leaders
Posted by Diana Reese on January 29, 2013
History’s being made this month. Last week, President Barack Obama became the first president to use the term “gay” in reference to sexual orientation in an inauguration speech. And on Monday the Boy Scouts of America — which successfully fought against allowing gays into its ranks all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 — said it may reverse its policy next week.
1. It is against the law to discriminate against anyone based on the colour of their skin;
2. It is against the law to discriminate against anyone based gender;
3. It is against the law to discriminate against anyone based on religion;
4. So, give it to me here. Is it against the law to discriminate against anyone based on sexual preference in the U.S.? Maybe it is, maybe it is not. Can you inform me?
Incidentally, I heartily applaud Obama's mention of gays in his inaugural speech. Enough of this discrimination. Bravo.
