Pay Up or Leave, Boy Scouts!
Scouting for All has been fighting for this for years. It's about time something is coming of it. Still no mention of the discrimination against atheists though. I guess that is still acceptable.
Boy Scouts May Have to Pay to Keep Property in Phila.
The city of Philadelphia says the Boy Scouts have to stop discriminating against gays if they want to keep using a city-owned building rent-free.
The Boy Scouts' Cradle of Liberty Council is the third-largest in the country. It has been embroiled with the city for more than three years over its policy that forbids gays from being scout leaders.
The organization has made its headquarters on a half-acre property in the upscale Philadelphia Art Museum area since 1928. Now the city says the council must pay fair market rent or get out.
Council spokesman Jeff Jubelirer says Buy Scouts programs serve 40,000 Philadelphia children.
