Scouts Still Want It Both Ways


The Berkeley Sea Scouts, a boys club that is affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America and teaches sailing, carpentry and plumbing recently lost their free berthing priveleges because the Boy Scouts discriminate against gays and atheists. Since it costs around $500 to berth a boat in Berkeley, the Sea Scouts are pretty pissed that they can’t receive the benefits of the policy without following its non-discrimination rule.

That’s why they are taking their ill-fated fight to the U.S. Supreme Court where it may or may not be heard. We personally are thrilled that all those Sea Scout boats won’t be cluttering up the harbors in Berkeley, because we’ve been on the waiting list for a berthing spot for months now.
