A Catholic Church Says No

Recommended Posts

When I say that His Excellency seemed to act more for legal reasons than moral, it's because of what he wrote about the lack of protection for parishes and schools that sponsor troops. I am speculating here but I'm thinking he is concerned that parishes and schools will be taken to court for not permitting homosexual leaders in the troops they sponsor and that he doesn't put much stock in the BSA's ability to defend and idemnify them.

I suppose anything is legallly possible though it is hard to imagine a court intervening or even listening to a case about how a religious organization selects its adult volunteers.

 

Recently a Kentucky parish rejected re-instating a gay ASM, no legal rumblings just a Charge.org petition. Time is short, I think he and his son should transfer to another troop.
