In 2000, the Supreme Court ruled in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale that Boy Scouts, and all private organizations, have the constitutionally protected right under the First Amendment of freedom of association to set membership standards.

Obama should keep his nose out of things he isn't a party to.

When the Scouts want to drop the ban on gays, they'll do it of their own accord.

Nah.......Obama has been in campaign mode for so many years that he just can't help pandering for votes, even after the election is over.

It was Bull Connor, a member of the Democrat National Committee, who turned the hoses on the marchers in Birmingham, and it was the Republicans who made up the majority that passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, over the filibuster of such Democrat paragons as William Fulbright and Al Gore Sr.- and Grand Kleagle Byrd.

The likely outcome is that the national organization is going to drop this particular hornets nest right square in the laps of the local groups. They're hoping to stem the tide of big donors cutting and running at their exercising their right to be silly bigots. It's going to backfire badly as local after local blows up over this.

As long as the Boy Scouts use public funds, which they do, they should not be allowed to discriminate against gays.

Will you ever stop displaying your painful ignorance all over these boards? Yesterday's Republican party has virtually no resemblance to that bigoted, stupid, hatemongering piece of excrement that calls itself the Republican party today.

God is not willing, you a'hole! The Boy Scouts has been infested with pedophiles forever. Allowing gays would actually decrease the incidence of pedophilia.
In would imagine God as a being who loves all his children, even cretins like you.

Obama's daughters should do porn with two bull dykes also, just to prove his real support.

The same for Acorn, Planned Parenthood and all the tree hugger organizations that get government funds but the people paying taxes get no benefit from.

The narcissis in chief only cares about himself. He's done more for gays,(2% of public) than he has for blacks (13% of public). Is it an accident? No, it's where his real love lies.
