To: Do not dub me shapka broham; Jay777
When the BSA finds itself in legal hot water because it wants its members to honor God, this is not the America that I knew growing up. In my youth, acknowledgement of our faith and our country's Judeo-Christian heritage was common and accepted practice. Our country has lost its moorings, and too many Americans of Christian and Jewish heritage willingly have abandoned the faith that held their forbearers in good stead.

A federal judge has told the Boy Scouts that belief is unacceptable because the government must be "neutral."

The ruling in this case reaffirms the need to place judges on the federal bench who are committed to interpreting the law, not actively rewriting it. The Pentagon's support of the Boy Scout Jamboree does not establish a religion and surely does not violate the First Amendment.

Thanks for the link as well.
