-California Bans Judges from Boy Scouts

by Dr. D ~ January 28th, 2015

The California Supreme Court has banned all state judges from belonging to or participating in the Boy Scouts. Here’s the story from CitizenLink:

The California Supreme Court says no state judge may belong to the Boy Scouts of America. That’s because the group does not allow openly homosexual scout leaders and the state high court says that’s discriminatory.

Part of a code of ethics passed in 1996, the rule is supposed to protect a judge’s impartiality. A group of more than 100 attorneys spoke out against the decision.

“The proposal creates an unconstitutional test for public office,” they wrote in a letter, “threatens the constitutional rights of California judges, and states unabashedly that it is designed to punish the Boy Scouts of America by prohibiting California judges from participating in that group’s activities.”

Response: This ruling is going to be challenged in Federal court. Nevertheless, watch out for similar legislation and rulings in your own state.

For now, participation in churches and religious groups with similar restrictions on homosexual leaders is exempted. Look for that to change in the future if this ruling is successful. Even now in the present environment, it is really difficult to see how a conservative Christian could ever be appointed and serve as a state judge in California.

A Muslim or two with similar views toward homosexuality might get appointed in the name of diversity and it will still be open to ‘Christians’ who belong to liberal churches and turn their backs on the Bible and traditional Christian teaching. Nevertheless, a ‘pro-homosexual test’ is now in place in the state.          *Top

    As a lawyer, I assume the next step in California will be for the Calif. Supreme Court to ban all attorneys from participating in Boy Scouts. After all, an attorney is an “officer of the court”. Then, of course, you ban all state employees from participating.

    And, of course, any ban would then be extended to their families, so the sons of judges/lawyers, etc will soon be banned from participation.

    Brian, obviously you can see where this may be going. An actual ‘pro-Homosexual’ is being created in the state and may be extended eventually to others employed by the state. It also may go the way of British Columbia, Canada where graduates from a Christian law school can no longer receive a license to practice law in the Province.
