California Proposes Ban On Judges Linked To Boy Scouts
You know, because tolerance. But, in Liberal World tolerance is a one way street, and you will be made to care. And comply. Free association and free thought are Not Allowed
(Daily Caller) California is proposing to ban members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) from serving as judges because the Boy Scouts do not allow gay troop leaders, The Daily Caller has learned.
In a move with major legal implications, The California Supreme Court Advisory Committee on The Code of Judicial Ethics has proposed to classify the Boy Scouts as practicing “invidious discrimination” against gays, which would end the group’s exemption to anti-discriminatory ethics rules and would prohibit judges from being affiliated with the group.
The committee is, in fact, a government entity, and is essentially determining that the Boy Scouts are a “hate group” for refusing to allow inclusion of gay men, as that lifestyle goes against what the BSA stands for. Furthermore, there is always the concern, fair or not, about gay pedophiles spending lots of time with young boys, especially on camping trips.
“This proposed amendment has as its overtly-stated purpose the branding of the BSA as an organization whose members must be assumed to be biased and thus unfit for the bench. The Committee states that ‘eliminating the exemption… would enhance public confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary,’” Catherine Short of the pro-life group Life Legal Defense Foundation said.
“On the contrary, by promoting a hierarchy of politically-favored ‘victim’ status through pointlessly impugning the integrity of members of a venerable American institution, the proposed Amendment will communicate to the public that judges are being told by the California Supreme Court what to think, whom they may associate with, and what are permissible opinions to hold, and that only those who toe the line will be allowed to sit on the bench. The public can hardly expect impartiality from the judiciary in such a climate of intolerance,” Short wrote.
Progressives do not care about free thought, freedom of association, Belief, or anything else if it offends them, if it goes against Progressive ideology. Anything offensive is banned.
