SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- The California Supreme Court is considering prohibiting state judges from being members of the Boy Scouts because of its refusal to admit gays, the chief justice said.

The move, announced Thursday, comes months after San Francisco's judges and others cut ties with the organization for the same reason. The San Francisco Bar association and other groups recently asked the high court to revamp the rules.

At least the CA Supreme Court still has more appointees from Republicans than Democrats, which leaves a chance that they'll come to the right decision.

Sorry for the duplicate posting. I even searched first. The titles were different so my "exact phrase" search did no good.

How else could I have searched? I listed several key words and searched for "all" the words. Should I have just searched for Scouts like you posted the link? I'm relatively new but I try to search before posting something.

Remember all of the complaints of using litmus tests to pick judges? Wow, a behavior is now seen as a constitutional right. But don't have an opposite opinion. So much for freedom from the left. Californians deserve what they get. They were always so arrogant. They set the trend for the rest of the country. They were "liberated" from conventional thinking. Alas even Robert Shueller and his "hour of power" are being shunned by real christians. a Ha! I won't call this McCarthyism because to do that would blemish his name. This is Leninism at it's best. Let's call this for what it is.

When people think of the boy scouts as a hate group you know the world is messed up. Presumably judges will not be able to remain Christian either due to the biblical references to sodomy.

The fascistic Gaystapo at work again to take away the rights of Americans. People have the right to associate with whomever they want for whatever reason they want.
