PHILADELPHIA (AP) The nation's third-largest Boy Scout council expanded its nondiscrimination policy to include sexual orientation, defying the national group's official position.
    The board of the Cradle of Liberty Council, which has 87,000 members in Philadelphia and two neighboring counties, voted unanimously this month to make the change after discussions with homosexual activists and other community leaders that began two years ago.

I applaud the Philahelphia decision.

The boy scouts decision is inexplicable and unfair, although a private organization does have that right.

Me: "I have a job and five credit cards and am looking into signing a two year lease.  THAT MAKES ME OLD."
Josh: "I don't have a job, I have ONE credit card, I'm stuck in a lease and I'm 28! My mom's basement IS ONE BAD DECISION AWAY!"
~~ Josh, winning the argument.

I likewise applaud the Philadelphians.

And, if said "private organization"  is accepting government funds, they do not.

And if they're soliciting public donations and participation they damn straight better be upfront about their agenda.

Way to go, Philadelphia!
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.

Re: Gov't funds.

I concur. And I think by now that the entire public nows their policy on gays. :).

Well the courts have agreed that the scouts have the right to decide their membership requirements. The scouts get money becasue they have a long histroy of doing exceptional acts of civic involment. Sometimes at times when no one else would.

I personally do not agree with their polices but I respect the right that the court says they may do as they have.
