Liberals in California Target Judges with Boy Scout Ties
Renew America ^ | April 23, 2014 | Gina Miller

Listen to an audio version of this column

Give them an inch, and they'll demand a mile. We warned you that the terrible decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow openly homosexual boys into membership would only lead to further attacks against the organization by the militant homosexual Left. We were right, and the target is now judges who have ties to the Scouts.

In California, the Supreme Court Advisory Committee on the Code of Judicial Ethics has proposed amending the Code to ban judges who participate in, or are members of, non-profit youth organizations that "discriminate" on the basis of sexual orientation – that is, the Boy Scouts of America. The organization is specifically named in the proposal, because it still does not allow open homosexuals to be troop leaders. This proposal was open for public comments until April 15th, so I'm a little late to the twisted party, but this is still something you should know.

From the nine-page proposal:

Of the 47 states that bar membership in organizations that discriminate on the basis of certain enumerated classes, 22 (including California) list sexual orientation as one of the protected classes. California is, however, the only state whose code contains a prohibition against membership in organizations that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation that also has an exception for membership in nonprofit youth organizations. The [American Bar Association] Model Code of Judicial Conduct, upon which much of the California code is based, also contains no such exception.

California's status as the only state with an ethics code that prohibits membership in organizations that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation but has an exception for nonprofit youth organizations, combined with recent developments in the law relating to recognition of same-sex relationships, is anomalous and inconsistent with other principles in the canons. In the committee's view, eliminating the exception would promote the integrity of the judiciary.

The committee analyzed the exception in the context of a judge being a member of the [Boy Scouts of America (BSA)]. Until recently, the official policy of the BSA read: "While the [BSA] does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA." In May 2013, after a national council meeting, the BSA announced its decision to permit openly gay boys to participate as scouts until age 18, but to continue its bar against gay and lesbian adults as troop leaders or in other leadership positions. Because the BSA continues to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, the committee agreed that eliminating the exception, thereby prohibiting judges from being members of or playing a leadership role in the BSA, would enhance public confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary.

Only in a world run on lies would it be considered "ethical" to shun those who uphold right, moral standards. Only in a nation polluted by degeneracy would we see celebrations of abominable sin and the punishment of those who oppose it. This is insanity. For this "ethics" committee to exclude from the California judiciary people who are affiliated with an organization that has historically worked to help boys grow into good, moral citizens is simply disgusting.

This has nothing to do with enhancing "public confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary," but has everything to do with the radical homosexual movement's war against truth, reason, morality, and fundamentally, against God. The Left cares not a whit for judicial impartiality, as evidenced by so many Marxist-minded activists who routinely make unconstitutional law from the bench. The Left didn't give a rip about impartiality when a lawless federal judge, a homosexual, did not recuse himself from California's Proposition 8 case, in which he overturned the will of over 7 million Californians who had lawfully amended the state's constitution to correctly define marriage. No, the Left only cares about "bias" when it goes against its own anti-Christian, anti-freedom, unconstitutional schemes.

We can warn you of the danger to our freedoms posed by the militant homosexual movement till the cows come home, but unless millions of Americans are willing to stand forcefully and vocally against this evil agenda, it will continue to succeed in crushing freedom under its Godless boot.

Here's another little gem from that judicial "ethics" proposal that you'll just love:

The committee also proposes amending the commentary following canon 2C. Under the committee's proposal, the commentary would retain the language noting that membership in religious organizations is constitutionally protected, but references to military and nonprofit youth organizations would be deleted.

The existing penultimate sentence refers to "individual rights of intimate association and free expression." The committee proposes that this sentence be deleted; the code prohibits judges from being associated with any organization if that association would affect the integrity or impartiality of the judiciary. Because this sentence was inserted to apply to nonprofit youth organizations, the committee proposes that it be deleted.

God-given, First Amendment-protected, unalienable rights? Not for judges in California, if this proposal is adopted. This is warped beyond belief. A judge being involved with the Boy Scouts, in the view of the atrophied minds of this committee, would "affect the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary"? We are in mighty big trouble, folks.

Don't imagine for a minute that these people won't continue their scorched-earth campaign against freedom until they manage to outlaw any opposition to the devilish goals of the radical homosexual movement. Unless they are stopped, they will not stand for anything less than making any expression of Christianity illegal, because that's where this leads. Now, they have their cross-hairs set on judges to dictate their associations. I know it's an overused term, but this is horribly Orwellian, and it must be stopped.

How many of you would have thought 10 or 20 years ago, that an organization such as the Boy Scouts would be targeted for destruction?

How many of you thought it would be targeted for destruction by a legal association on the issue of judges?

How many of you would have thought that homosexual groups would get so much power in our society, that they can target everything from chicken fast food places to youth groups such as Boy Scouts? And that there is such fear of these homosexual activists, that the activists get their way most of the time???

Things are happening today that would have been unimaginable just a few short years ago.

And now that they have openly gay in the military, they will purge all officers who are not ‘fellow travelers’

Does everyone here understand the term ‘fellow travelers’? It means other communist sympathizers

Virtually everything known as wholesome, good and sometimes uniquely American are, and have been, under direct and vicious assault.

The problem with conservatives are that they don’t tend towards activism. They just want to be left alone to lead their lives in peace. They work, take care of their families, and don’t have time for marching in the streets.

What I have learned from watching all the leftist movements of the last 40 years is that something ridiculous like this is easily promoted by a few leftist activists, because the vast majority of people just take it in stride.

It can be easily slapped down if conservatives engaged in “social activism” the way the Left does.

Any judge affected by this should just sue these panel members individually in Federal Court and take their homes, cars, everything. Should be a slam dunk once it gets past the 9th circus.

Back in 2001, I endeavored to put this insane war on the Boy Scouts into perspective. That the malicious & utterly illogical attack has only gathered momentum, tells a great deal about the collapse not only of moral values, but of reason itself, in contemporary America--or at least in places like California.

Of course, when you have a President who repeatedly describes those who advertise their deviant inclinations as "heroes," you know that we live in very peculiar times.

Here is the 2001 analysis: Boy Scouts Of America & A Leftwing Agenda.

Gee, what a surprise. The homosexual lobby got BSA to cave on boys, and of course, it’s not enough. It’s never enough.

Too bad. Once they cave, it’s easier and easier.

The Homosexual Fascists won’t quit until all little boys are brainwashed like the little boys in Afghanistan who are in harems. It is a learned “worldview” (habituated behavior) and it has to be inculcated in childhood. Innocence of children is necessary for normal sexual identity formation. Without innocence there is no Awe and Mystery and respect for sex. There will be no “dignity” or “romance” or beauty in the sex act.....it will be reduced to an animal act devoid of beauty (harmony) and without morality (Miley Cyrus).

Freud stated (correctly) that when sex has no restraints, or divorced from moral principles, culture will collapse (can not be “civil”.) The weak are never protected-—they are ALWAYS used and discarded. Sex is the easiest way to corrupt a culture—because the sexual instinct is so strong—especially in males who tend to be more brutal with no female influences. All homosexual cultures (like the Samurai) were incredibly brutal and horrible places for women and children.

Sexualization is the aim of the Cultural Marxists—and Sex Ed was a Lukacs invention in early 1900s to destroy that “innocence” which creates a Christian Worldview—a respect for the dignity of others—especially of those who are physically, the opposite which takes maturity (true diversity).

Narcissists are immature—and homosexual activists are ALL immature and narcissists. They are only concerned about themselves and their “pleasure” and the access of the children for recruitment.

With the destruction of the family unit, the protection of children’s innocence is destroyed. With “day care” institutions the innocence of children is usually destroyed along with the “trust” in others, that only forms naturally within the family unit with healthy bonding to both mother and father.

The idea that perverted worldviews promoting Vice could help form the “worldview” of children is obscene and warps healthy formation of children.

This, of course, it the Leftist intent-—to destroy the type of Mature Masculine Male, who will die for their wife and children (family). They are normalizing Vice to destroy Virtue in the children. When they destroy Virtue, they destroy the ability to create “healthy” families-—without family of mother and father, children are vulnerable fodder for the sex perverts.

It is why the Marxists instilled “No Fault Divorce”.....the camel under the tent to discredit real marriage, so their “lifestyle” becomes “normal”. Vice is Normal and becomes “Good” because everyone does it.

Socrates: Without Virtue, there can be no Freedom. Republics are not possible since Public Virtue is essential.

If they can limit a judge because he belongs to the BSA which limits homosexuals.

They they will be able to limit a judge because he belongs to a bible believing church which does the same.
