-California: Proposal to Prohibit Judges with Ties to Boy Scouts

There is a new proposal in the State of California to prohibit judges from having membership ties with the Boy Scouts.

According to the ‘Ethics Advisory Committee’ of the state Supreme Court, the Boy Scouts are discriminatory against homosexuals and atheists so state judges should be free of any ties with that sort of organization.  Here’s the story from SFGate:

The state Supreme Court’s ethics advisory committee wants the court to prohibit California judges from membership in the Boy Scouts…

Banning scout membership would "promote the integrity of the judiciary" and "enhance public confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary," the ethics committee said Wednesday.

The ethics committee’s unanimous recommendation is another sign of a changing climate that has included increasing public, political and judicial support for same-sex marriage.

Response: Is this really just the beginning? If the Boy Scouts are now considered to be an ‘undesirable’ discriminatory organization since they still do not allow Gay leaders and ask for members to affirm a belief in God can conservative Christians who support the same positions soon also find themselves on the same prohibited list? The rationale would be that everyone is still free to believe whatever they like but judges must be free from any exclusive discriminatory beliefs and ties.

The cultural climate is changing so fast in America it really hard to keep up. Recently in the news, several well qualified Christian professors had a hard time getting tenure at universities. Also in the past year were the stories of several students who were dropped from counseling majors because of their Biblical views. Then there have been a number of accounts of Doctors, pharmacists, and allied health workers who got in trouble for refusing to participate in abortions. Not to mention the Christians business owners who have found themselves in the middle of lawsuits over their refusal to participate in same-sex marriages.

As incredible as it might seem in a nation where religious liberty is supposedly supported by the Constitution, conservative Bible believing Christians might soon find themselves being barred from all sorts of different occupations, professions, and businesses.            *Top

    If membership in an organization which excludes atheists is now prohibited for judges, then how can any judge now belong to (or join) a church?

    Right Brian,
    When you take it to the logical conclusion that is exactly what you get and also my greatest fear. Soon Christians may be the only folks that can be safely discriminated against.
