I’m glad this refers to the Dale case of 2000, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the Scouts can set membership and leadership standards to exclude homosexuals. There have been so many actions against the Scouts using public facilities, etc. since then. The way governments have been treating the scouts, it’s as if that 2000 Supreme Court decision never existed, because they say, as they recently did in Philadelphia, that the Scouts violate their local anti-discrimination ordinances. That’s BS because this issue has been decided by the Supreme Court. The local ordinances are in violation of the Supreme Court decision, not the other way around.

Would love to see this issue get more publicity. The Scouts have been sued on this, it went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and people act as if it never happened.
