Sure, attack an organization that teaches wonderful values to young boys and teaches them hard work, service to others and dedication. The state of Moronfornia isn’t about any of those things. So kill off the Boy Scouts in California so we get more juvenille deliquency and street gangs, all because the sacred protected class of deviants gets their feelings hurt if someone doesn’t accept their perverted lifestyles. “Accept me! Accept me!” << The credo of the Stalinist gay movement.

Yep but its “accept me so I can destroy you from the inside” because the sexual progressive homosexuals don’t really want to be boy scouts or to be a part of the church they want to undermine and make those organizations irrelevant, meaningless, and powerless. They want to define Christianity and normalcy as bigotry.

Scout leadership is voluntary and not a paid position, so I cannot see how Government
can impose any regulations on a non-profit for choosing who they want in the club.
But then, we're talking about a state full of IDIOTS who vote these asshats into office.

“I’d agree but that is surrendering and of course it is behaving like Boy Scouts have something to be ashamed of when they do not.”

I understand your view. But being right in California is like being a virgin in prison. It’s a good feeling while it lasts.

“free exercise”
“freedom of association”
“establishment of a state religion”

This is the same state where they want mandatory fertility insurance coverate if two man having intercorse with each other does not produce a pregnancy. (but they have to try for one year. How will that be proven?)

This provision would be an unconstitution infringment on freedom of association and would violate the equal protection clause by discriminating on the basis of religion. It would be a blatently unconstitutional law and California knows this yet they are trying to bully the scouts with the high costs of litigating the issue to victory.

The homosexual crowd have depended on freedom of association to assert their privilege of consenting sex with whoever in private.

Now they don't like the freedom of association?

Time to act ~ prohibit homosexual association in other states ~ punish it with a special tax.

Two can play at this game.

Homosexuals ALWAYS end up over-reaching, which is why they AWAYS end up getting prohibited and punished. They have no sense of self control, nor do they respect the rights of others.

This is exactly why I am against “Gay Marriage”.

Wow. Haven’t they ever heard of the Freedom of Association?

What a mad house California has become and all for the support of what we were once convinced was “private behavior between consenting adults”.

Next it will be churches, and preachers will be thrown into jail.

Of course.

If this flies, I expect that the Catholic church will have its tax exempt status threatened next unless they endorse gay marriage.

And I fear some bishops might in order to preserve their property.

Legislation forcing the rest of society to accept the behavioral choices of others is not freedom, but tyrannical insolence.

Under the bill, SB 323, California would strip tax-exempt status from any “organization organized and operated exclusively as a public charity youth organization that discriminates on the basis of gender identity, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, or religious affiliations.”

Under this law, could they get rid of CAIR? Or any other mosque that preaches hate? Do they dare?

“liberalism” is the political expression
of the religion of humanism
which began with the lie in Genesis 3,
“you will be as gods, knowing good and evil”.

It will end only when its author is plucked up
by an unnamed angel and flung into the Pit forever.
