Boy Scout ~ bye bye
I just got done watching the news on FOX, and I’ve been doing a happy dance since one of the stories aired. The story was about the local Boy Scout Council that is housed in the Art Museum in Philadelphia. They are being evicted! Why? Because of their views on Gays and Lesbians. They were in the public building, rent-free. That means the public was footing the bill for them to be there. The same public they are discriminating against! They won their law suit in 2000, stating that they can discriminate against Gays and Lesbians, because they are a private company. So, they need to privately pay for their own space now! HA!
Yes, I’m glib about it, and I make no bones about it, either! When they won their Supreme Court suit in 2000, I vowed to never allow my Son to join the Boy Scouts, unless they changed their rules. It would be awfully hypocritical of me to allow my Son into an organization that would discriminate against his own mother!
Anyway, the news website hasn’t been updated yet, but here is a link to last year’s story about the possibility of them being evicted: http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?section=local&id=4369463
