"Should the Legislature congratulate the Boy Scouts of America on the anniversary of the granting of its federal congressional charter despite the fact that this organization steadfastly continues to discriminate against individuals because of their sexual orientation or religious views?"

The BSA must be supported against the leftist destroyers.
Liberals discriminate against Christians and heterosexuals. It’s time we fight back!
As a former Scout, a dad to a Life Scout working towards Eagle and a current Scout Leader in CA, I don’t want anything from the CA legislature, especially their “congratulations”.
I don’t need, nor do I want or seek their affirmation of anything related to Scouting. I do it because I know how important it is and because I believe in it.
Agreed. Leave the idiots pols alone to wallow in the stink of their own stupidity.
I refuse to let them change my vocabulary. Therefore they remain LIBERALS to me. I know it may sound nitpicky but this is exactly how they effected a 40-year coup of our country: one little baby step at a time.
They do not descriminate against anyone....but they DO uphold their own personal and Supreme Court approved private organizational beliefs. Get over it.
"Not allowing atheists into Scouts defies both American and Scouting values. It teaches kids to hate and to think of atheists as lesser people," lawmakers wrote. "It teaches them to fear differences rather than understand them."
Wrong again. They do not teach hate, their teachings do promote integrity, respect honor and obedience which are clearly defined in their publications. Read and learn and get over it.
The analysis, under Assemblyman Mike Feuer as chairman, also cited the "compelling stories of hurt and pain that this longstanding policy has caused individuals who are otherwise deeply committed to the values of and participation in this longstanding institution."
Any pain felt by individuals is the result of their own personal and private beliefs, which they are entitled to, just as the Boy Scouts of America are. The Boy Scouts of America are deeple committed to their values and welcome those who are willing to do the same. Those who have differnt values and principles are free to pursue their own personal lifestyles and beliefs in whatsoever manner it pleases them. So...PAH-LEEZE get--over--it!
I call them leftists.
What is galling to me is their perception of moral superiority and how the rest of us are supposed to march lockstep because they say so.
Your statement is quite succinct and extremely accurate.
Aw dang it! I got two merit badges in hate. I guess I will have to give them up.
Boy Scouts teach ‘hate’
Whew! Thank God that someone still is......there’s more things than ever that deserve to be hated.
“Not allowing atheists into Scouts defies both American and Scouting values.”
Where did politicians get the authority to say what “Scouting values” are?
The California legistlature is a bigger dispenser of hate.
Please refrain from using the word Progressives for these left-wing corrupt politicians. As a Conservative, I consider myself to be progressive. They are not deserving of that label.
The Catholic Church does, and how’s that workin out for them??
The Catholic Church doesn’t, and how’s that workin out for them??
So they’re intolerantly attacking the Boy Scouts over the freedom to associate.
What a queer position to take for those asking for more liberty.
Indeed it is. I only got to spend 5 years as a Scout but enjoyed it just the same.
