Boy Scouts

Gay advocates will argue to the Supreme Court that the Boy Scouts violated the public accommodations clause of the Constitution by expelling an openly gay scoutmaster in New Jersey. Commentator Joe Loconte argues the Court should resist government's effort to remake a private organization in its own "secular, egalitarian image."
