Wait till Lambda Legal hears about this. Since the Boy Scouts “discriminate” against homosexual leaders, they are a worthless organization per the gay groups.
Oh, boy, look out! The homosexuals are gonna sue over that one!
The ACLU will never allow this...the Scouts discriminate against moral relativism.
Actually, several other states already do this, so if Lambda Legal or the ACLU plan to sue you’d think they would have already done so.
If you could ping the list, sir, I’d appreciate it.
