Julianne Moore, Fran Drescher Stand Up For Lesbian Mom Ousted From Boy Scouts

Julianne Moore and Fran Drescher have stood up for Jennifer Tyrell, the lesbian mom who was ousted from her position as den leader from her son’s Boy Scout troop for being gay.

Both Moore and Drescher tweeted: “Dear @boyscouts, on Mother’s Day I support Jennifer & ALL moms, gay & straight! #scoutsforall http://change.org/scouts.”

Other celebs who have been involved in the campaign, spearheaded by GLAAD, include Josh Hutcherson, Benecio del Toro, Jane Leeves, and the casts of Glee and the Real Housewives.

The issue has even touched the California State Assembly, which passed a measure Tuesday recommending the Boy Scouts to end its policy of anti-gay discrimination. The L.A. Times reports:

The panel passed a separate measure by Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles), chairman of the committee, that honors the Boy Scouts while urging the group ‘to accept for membership and leadership positions all qualified boys and men, without discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or religious belief.’ “

Who’ll come out against the Boy Scouts next? Mitt Romney? Didn’t he already say he wanted gays in the Boy Scouts, like, 20 years ago?

      Hey, BSA! Your organization does too much good to throw it away like this, especially on a position logically contrary to what you’re supposed to stand for. Rethink while there’s still time.

      If you want studying how to become a developer, there are a few elements that you are going to want to do. Becoming a developer is certainly not simple, but it will be more than value it if you take your energy and energy and effort, and keep the right information in thoughts.
