The Boy Scouts of America may have the Supreme Court’s approval to hate fags but they certainly don’t have Philadelphia’s consent. In 2006 the city told the BSA to vacate their 80-year-old rent-free headquarters because the BSA’s anti-gay policies run afoul of the City Charter.
The Scouts cried foul and starting today they’ll face off against Philly in a U.S. District Court. The question is whether the city applies their charter’s rules consistently. After all Philly lets the anti-gay child molesting Catholic Church use public lands, so why not the anti-gay child molesting Boy Scouts? Dan Savage was right — between the two, you’re better off sending your child to a gay bar.
