Philadelphia Punishes Boy Scouts for 'Discriminating' Against Homosexuals

The action by city officials means that 30 new Cub Scout packs won't be organized, and that 800 needy kids will not be going to the Council's summer camp...

A pro-family activist devoted to countering the homosexual agenda says the United States has clearly reached the depths of depravity when a major U.S. city can decide to financially punish the Boy Scouts of America because they refuse to allow homosexuals into their group.

The Cradle of Liberty Council of the Boy Scouts of America, which serves about 64,000 scouts in Philadelphia and its suburbs, has been paying $1 a year rent for its downtown office. But recently the city decided that the Scouts must pay the fair market rent of $200,000 a year to remain in that city-owned location because the group "discriminates" against homosexuals.

Please take the time to contact the mayor to express your disgust at the treatment of this fine organization for young men.
