I remember in 2000 being furious by this garbage of 'you can't be a part of our organization!'
That handsome man is James Dale and he is the one who sued the Boy Scouts and made it all the way to the Supreme Court before the Court said the Boy Scouts can discriminate all they want.
That may sound like a long time ago. It was just 2000.
I remember following the case in the news and being so upset and then even more upset when Rolling Stone magazine did a post-verdict article.
James Dale just wanted to continue his Scouts path. His being gay shouldn't have been an issue.
So what I want to note tonight is Kelly Smith's Star Tribune article explaining gay Scouts are welcome in Minnesota where the Boy Scouts refuse to discriminate and fight for equality.
Good for them. I am very upset by the larger, national group's decision. But I am very proud of the Minnesota Boy Scouts who lead the way and show courage and wisdom. They are Scouts, leaders and heroes.
