As long as it exists, the Scouts have as much right to it as any other organized group.

Be careful what you wish for. Whenever the subject of a private organization's access to public assets comes up, I always present a hypothetical scenario in which a radical Islamic sect wants the same access to these public facilities as an organization like the Boy Scouts.

And what makes you think the America-haters in Berkeley would have the slightest problem with a radical Islamic group?

I've always thought of it as your having (and exercising) the right to exclude people from your organization for whatever reason you wish to you want to exclude them for, gives others the right to exclude you from using facilities, standing on the very same right that you stood on to justify your right to exclude.
