The Boy Scouts of America leadership simply doesn’t like non-heterosexuals, and is encouraging the boys under its charge to follow along with this bigoted attitude. That’s an ugly and unhealthy message for children to receive – and it’s incompatible with the patriotic Americans who support the Constitution of the United States of America, which outlaws inequality under the law.

The Boy Scouts of America organization found itself scrambling yesterday with the news that two of the big performers for this summer’s Boy Scouts Jamboree have pulled out of the event. Carly Rae Jepsen and the band Train told the BSA that they won’t sing and dance at the Jamboree […]
