Supposedly marriage-focused NOM promotes Boy Scouts discrimination

by Jeremy Hooper

They can say there are only focused on "protecting marriage" all they want. When NOM promotes events that have no purpose other than to keep the Boy Scouts' discriminatory anti-gay policies, they show their broader animus:

As you surely know, the proposed Boy Scout policy change would simply allow openly gay minors (not even adults—just children) to remain in the program. That is what NOM is fighting here: Little vulnerable boys who, as of now, are kicked out if anyone finds out they are gay.

It's not just about marriage, folks. It never has been.
