Maybe someone who is a lot smarter than this dumb pig farmer from the back wash of PA can explain to me how this is NOT a first amendment issue.
The first amendment guarantees the right of association. Inherent in that right, in my uneducated opinion, is conversely the right to DISASSOCIATE.
In other words, my right is to associate with like minded people or those I CHOOSE to associate with.
FORCING me to associate with people that I would not willingly want to associate with, is a violation of that right.
Where is the flaw in my thinking?
The flaw in your thinking is that you assumed you were living in a constitutional democracy. You aren’t. You are living in a sort of Europeanized Nanny State.
I believe the courts have upheld the Scouts right to choose their leaders and their members, but jerks such as this Ernst & Young CEO are still free to use other types of pressure to try to change Scout policy.
