Court Unanimously Bans Judges from Working with Boy Scouts Over Stance on Homosexuality

Scouts pdSAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — The Supreme Court of California has unanimously voted to ban judges in the state from working with groups such as the Boy Scouts of America due to their stance on homosexual behavior.

The court voted on the matter on Friday, taking up a recommendation from the court’s Advisory Committee on the Code of Judicial Ethics.

“The Supreme Court adopted the recommendation … to eliminate an exception to an ethics rule that prohibits judges from holding membership in any organization that practices invidious discrimination on the basis of race, sex, gender, religion, national origin, ethnicity, or sexual orientation,” it explained in a press release.

In 1996, the court had banned judges from being involved with the groups that purportedly discriminate against others, but provided exceptions for youth and religious organizations. Friday’s vote removed the exceptions surrounding youth organizations.

“The only remaining exception to the general rule is membership in a religious organization,” explained Fourth District Court of Appeal Justice Richard Fybel, chair of the Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on the Code of Judicial Ethics. “One other exception—belonging to a military organization—was eliminated as well, because the U.S. armed forces no longer restrict military service based on sexual orientation.”

The proposed rule change had been open for public comment last year, but the amount of response from California citizens is not known, nor whether there were those who expressed opposition to barring judges from being involved with youth organizations that decry sexual activity between those of the same gender. However, the California Judges Association offered its support for the removal of the exception.

Judges will have until January 21, 2016 to comply. Currently, 22 states have similar judicial rules surrounding homosexuality.

While the Boy Scouts of America was not singled out in the rule change, which pertained to all youth organizations that “discriminate” in regard to sexuality, many believe that the Boy Scouts are the most notable group affected. Although, the scout national council voted in 2013 to allow “open or avowed homosexual” youth to enroll in the group, it retained its ban on homosexual leaders.

Due to concerns over the membership allowance, Boy Scout officials also announced that “[a] general move toward individual toilet and shower facilities” was in the works and that “[e]ach unit’s leadership along with their committee will be responsible for working with their parents to determine appropriate sleeping arrangements.”

It additionally released a Membership Standards Implementation manual that provided answers to frequently asked questions, such as, “How does the BSA define ‘morally straight?’”

“The Boy Scout Handbook continues to define ‘morally straight’ as ‘Your relationships with others should be honest and open,” it outlined. “Respect and defend the rights of all people. Be clean in your speech and actions and faithful in your religious beliefs. Values you practice as a Scout will help you shape a life of virtue and self-reliance.”

Some still consider the Scouts to be “discriminatory” despite the changes, while a number of churches discontinued working with the organization as they viewed the move as being an unbiblical compromise.

“We don’t hate anybody,” said Mike Shaw of the First Baptist Church of Pelham, Alabama, which ended its partnership with the Boy Scouts in 2013. “We’re not doing it out of hatred. The teachings of the Scripture are very clear on this. We’re doing it because it violates the clear teaching of Scripture.”

    Then make sure none of them are members of the Democrat Party.

  • Gary

    Judicial ethics? LOL!!! Boy, they must think we are all a bunch of dimwits!

    • Fundisi

      The Courts, virtually all the courts, having taken sides with the homosexual movement, they are virtually all pro-homosexuality and gay marriage. This Democrat Party/Liberals are just like the Nazi’s, they are using the courts to advance their evil agenda and these same judges, having taken their oath to the Nazi/Democrat Party will soon send Christians to prison and death. See Judgment at Nuremberg!

      • Gary

        It includes the Republican Party. There is practically no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. They try to make it look like there is a difference in order to fool average people. They all work for the same rich people.

        • Fundisi

          I am not defending either party, but I do believe the Democrats and Liberals have been the driving force in our moral/spiritual downfall, albeit admittedly with far too much capitulation on the Right.

      • SFBruce

        Liberals are “just like” the Nazis? That’s completely irrational.

        • Fundisi

          It is just like the Nazi’s and the Soviets and others of their ilk, they are using the courts to enforce their political ideology upon others and using them to silence all political opposition.

          • SFBruce

            At the theoretical level, fascism and American progressive ideas are polar opposites, and liberals are hardly promoting genocide of anyone, let alone an entire ethnic group. So, sure, Nazis and liberals are “just alike” if what you mean by “just alike” is “completely different.”

          • Fundisi

            Genocide? Tell that to the 5+ million babies they have slaughtered in their American baby holocaust.

            Just like the Nazi’s and Soviets they are silencing all opposition to their godless socialist agenda, especially in their persecution of Christians.

          • SFBruce

            No one is being silenced. The Supreme Court has upheld the right of Westboro Baptist Church in its activities most would describe as hateful. This website continues to operate as it wants; you comment here freely. Free speech is alive & well. I suppose I should be glad you make such totally inappropriate analogies since I’m convinced only those who already agree with you are the only ones who don’t dismiss them out of hand.

          • Fundisi

            Tell your lies to the bakers, photographers and others that are being silenced by the State in an effort to FORCE them to compromise their faith or lose their businesses, their jobs and all they own. Tell that to every Christian that dares not share their faith in uniform or at work, tell your lies somewhere else.

          • SFBruce

            I say it again: no one is being silenced. The bakers and photographers you reference have all had their day in court, and so far, no judge has bought their defense that their religious liberty gives them the right to choose which laws to obey. The military and the workplace bring disparate groups together and aren’t always the right place to share your faith; conservative Christians aren’t the only group with rights.

      This sounds like an incoherent rant.

            Anti beast in Rome? Absolutely.

            The Vatican is overrun by sodomy. But if you are the one who needs ‘verifiable’ facts, see here for hundreds of articles compiled that prove Daniel 11:37, “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the DESIRE OF WOMEN, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.” The RCC fulfills this verse in its entirety.

            sounds like a crazed Seventh Day Adventist rant

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            You really have it out for the SDA church I see. I don’t know why, they are about as apostate as they come. There are Sunday keeping SDA churches now, they are calling Allah “God”, embracing trinity doctrine, ordaining women pastors, teaching Islam in the SDA schools, forgone the health message taught by their own prophet, engaging in politics (Ben Carson) and declaring that redefinition of marriage is ok. So really I don’t get you. But if this is what floats your boat with Ellen White this or SDA that then go for it. I preach Christ crucified and the third angels message of Revelation 14. Why don’t you just follow me? It will be easier for you to troll my posts.

          • pax2u

            I see that you post incoherent anti Catholic rants and post links from Seventh Day Adventist websites

            do you believe that ellen g white was a for profit prophet of God?

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            Actually the links is a list of compiled articles that display the
            hundreds of RCC child molestations, pedophile priests, cover ups of scandals, mischief in confessionals, and much more. I find it
            difficult that over 1000 sources are quoted and verified to be
            anti-Catholic simply because you say so.. Would it have mattered if
            this link was from the National Enquirer or TMZ? Stay on topic. If
            you must comment, comment on the topic at hand. Thank you.

          • pax2u

            actually the links are from the Seventh Day Adventist Church websites, what an amazing fact

            I am glad that you deny the Seventh Day Adventist and ellen g white as a prophet of God

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            No, the amazing fact is that you refuse to stay on topic. 🙂 And by the way, the site is not an SDA site. The site owner makes that quite clear so much so that one page is dedicated to the SDA body to show them the obvious apostasy in their churches. You missed that one though. But because you saw the word “Ellen White” you declared the automatic assumption “Must be SDA”. LOL. I can easily post things shes has written hundred years before you were born that are literally being fulfilled in our day. And these cannot be found in the Word at all. Only a prophet can do such. But why bother? You have already shown your wall of conceit. I will never take your word that you say someone is a false prophet until I take the writings and compare them with the infallible Word of God. And how does one do that? By actually reading the writings. And from someone who was Baptist 30+ years and just started reading her writings last year, I can personally say I have never read books that were authored as if it was God Himself guiding her pen. But you couldn’t care less so maybe someone else will be blessed by this reply instead of clinging to those sites that plagiarize and slander her (which you frequent). Matter of fact, I will type in your reply for it is guaranteed it will include the words “Ellen White” or “Seventh Day Adventist”. But I like to stay ON TOPIC, and the discussion is Boy Scouts and homosexuality. May I suggest law school? You would make an excellent prosecutor. All of the traits are there.

          • pax2u

            I agree with you that ellen g white was not a prophet of the Christian God, and I agree with you that the many of the Seventh Day Adventist Church are filled with hatred of Christianity, and your links from Seventh Day Adventist web sites are crazed and filled with hatred, I agree

          • Tobias Valentin

            I am not an SDA member, but I consider EGW is a genuine prophet for the last time… She explained the Holy Bible so well, all her writings send to Bible… There is nothing unbiblical in her books… All the members of my church, now believe in her, as prophet, because i shared to them her awesome words ….#HallelujaAMEN

          • pax2u

            so you believe that ellen g white spoke for God?

          • Tobias Valentin

            Yes I trully believe Ellen G white was a genuine prophet of the most High and she spoke in God’s name… Even though I am not an SDA and do not intend to become a member I still believe in her as prophet of the Most High….

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            Please don’t go back and forth with this guy. Heed the wise words of Solomon

            Proverbs 26:4-5, “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.”

            Don’t give that guy pax2u a reason. He obviously hates Ellen White and the Truth and has probably not read any of her writings…just visited some anti Ellen White site.

          • James Grimes

            Paxy, I expected no less from you. Besides being incoherent, you accuse people of things that you know are false. You ramble on without doing any thinking. You post comments without thinking. You call people names without thinking. You have never had an original thought here on Christian News. All you do is to repeat false information, some as many as 35 times. I feel sorry for you, as you have never exhibited basic intelligence.

            Now, when you reply to this and try to insult me, try to come up with something new and try to be coherent for once. I do belong to a denomination, so you have to take a different line. I don’t hate Christians, so you don’t have to repeat that lie. I don’t know anything about the Seventh Day Adventists, so you don’t have to go there.

            Some new insult? Go for it.

          • pax2u

            Jimmy Grimmy I realize that your denomination is the Seventh Day Adventist Church and worship your for profit ellen g white if that is not your denomination what is your denomination or are you ashamed to name it?

            “Jimmy Grimmy I realize that your denomination is the Seventh Day Adventist Church”
            Paxy, you can do better than this. You know that I am not a member of the SDA church, yet you tell a lie. This must make you a liar. In fact, it makes you a lying Catholic, as you give Catholics a bad name.
            “and worship your for profit ellen g white if that is not your denomination what is your denomination or are you ashamed to name it?”
            Paxy, you are being incoherent again. What did I tell you about denominations? You are repeating yourself again. This must be 100+ times that you have brought this up.

            “you are an incoherent “useless”, and since you are new to America your English skills are minimal”
            You know this isn’t true. You are a liar 2x over

            “your hatred of Christians is very sad”
            Again, another lie. Is this all you know how to do? Is this what you are taught in church?

            “I will pray for your eternal soul to my Christian God Jesus Christ, amen”
            No you won’t. While I appreciate the prayers of my Christian brothers and sisters, I know you will not pray for me in a genuine way. This is another lie.
            You were told to think through what you were going to write. Why didn’t you do as you were told to do? Try using capitalization and punctuation next time and work on your sentence structure. This is third grade knowledge. Use it.
            You have a very bad habit of lying. You violate God’s law every time you lie. Again, your shameful behavior makes the Roman Catholic Church look bad.

            I am not ashamed to name my faith as a Catholic of the Latin Rite, are you ashamed to name your denomination?

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            Nope, not at all, especially since I am not SDA as you so badly want me to be. But now I see why you are so angry. I would be too if someone kept calling my beloved church antichrist (which it is) and that I was going to go to hell for being a Catholic. As a Catholic I would declare Ellen White to be an “enemy of the state” because she exposes the RCC as antichrist and the popes as the man of sin in just about ALL her writings. I understand brother, and I will pray for you that you come out of Babylon and turn to the true Creator God and not the created creature (beast) in Rome.

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            Was a Catholic…thus blinded by the truth. Its all good brother. Every Catholic that sees any smidgen of Truth that points to the RCC as antichrist, they label it as conspiracy. All of them. You have been trained to so such. Not you fault. Just the way you were trained just like the way you are being trained now to accept liberal ideas…like homosexual marriage. Did you ever wonder how you got here? I don’t. I could care less if to men love each other or not. It’s wrong…yep. But just like those two men, and you, and me…we all got here by one way and one way only…by the copulation of a MAN and a WOMAN. God Bless 🙂

          • Spoob

            I’m not homosexual, but I don’t judge those who are. They didn’t choose it and they aren’t doing anything wrong. As for Catholics, no, I was never “blinded by the truth”, that was Christianity and there was nothing wrong with it.I learned the very same Ten Commandments, Lord’s Prayer and everything else you did.

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            The Lord calls on his followers to use RIGHTEOUS judgement. Are His called to just point fingers? No and this is what you are implying. When a man is drunk do I judge him drunk? Or does his slurred speech, wobbly walk and foul order TELL me that he is drunk? Warning a person that they are in sin is not judging them if there works give it away that they ARE in sin. This, my friend, is exactly what the Scriptures teach.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Thanks, James! I’m not Catholic, but I know and serve the Lord with many faithful Catholics who are more conservative than the most fire-breathing Protestant. And, they are holding the line and fighting the Abortion president, who is attacking the Sanctity of Life and Marriage. There are as many Catholics-in-name-only as there are RINOs. (Pelosi, Kerry, etc.)

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            They can’t fight the abortion president because his bossman, the Pope, won’t allow that. Obama being a Muslim…hold up…I though Muslims hate Christians, uh, never mind. I am not anti Catholic. God makes it clear in Rev 18 that His people need to come out of Babylon. In order for Him to make such a prophetic statement means His people must still be IN Babylon correct. God has His people in all churches and they are just going in the light that they have been given. But many do know, and willingly turn a blind eye to Truth.

            And I wouldn’t be to hype on Pelosi and Kerry…they may scream pro life but they favor death panels…contradiction, heh? 🙂

  • Reason2012

    Ask them why they demand that males who are sexually attracted to males have access to little boys. By design girls are kept out of boy scouts because it’s girls that are attracted to boys and vice-versa. For this reason alone, they should flat out recuse themselves since they claim to have this attraction.

    But you can see the real motive is about males who are attracted to males getting access to little boys – they couldn’t care less about the rights of everyone else.

    • Aislynn

      Actually, men who are gay are attracted to men and masculinity. Little boys are not masculine and don’t embody maleness, and thus are not attractive to gay men. Being a pedophile is similar to being a rapist…it isn’t about sexual attraction it’s about domination, power and control.

      They allow den mothers, who are generally women, to interact with the scouts. Once again though…a heterosexual woman is attracted to MEN and masculinity, not children.

      It’s a tired and demented argument to equate homosexuals with pedophiles…give it a rest.

      • bowie1

        But some of the boys might be nervous to have some other boy touch them even in a non-harming way, if they knew he was gay.

      • Trey

        I remember having den motheRs. One was quite hot. But this is a purely ethical thing. People need to get that

      • SundayWorshipistheMARK

        So how do you explain group like NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association). The rare exception to the rule? If a man stores hundreds of images of child pornography on his computer, who is controlling? He is infatuated…and infatuation leads to attraction. That’s common for any relationship.

        • Spoob

          NAMBLA is a pedophile group, not a homosexual group.

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            From “Wikipedia” yes. NAMBLA’s own website. No. NAMBLA is group for men who are attracted to boys or vice versa as they claim on their site. This can compose of men of all sexual preference, not just homosexuals.

          • Spoob

            No, homosexuals are not pedophiles. Look up “consenting adults”.

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            Liberal ideas hey? Little boys are not adults.

          • Spoob

            No, they’re not, so why do you keep confusing the two? Homosexual adults are not interested in boys.

          • colt721

            That is not the way they act. I have seen dozens of stories in the last year where a Proclaimed or admitted Homosexual some of them working to promote the LGBT lifestyle were caught and convicted fro child pornography and pedophilia. What I did NOT see in any of those cases was the LGBT community doing or saying anything to condemn the perpetrator/s in any of the cases.

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            So you are speaking for every single homosexual man on the planet? Which goes back to my original point. The RCC is loaded with homosexual priests. And its been know for eons that the RCC has a problem keeping its hand off little boys. Do I really need to put two and two together? A blind man off the streets can figure this out? Did you ignore the list of the thousands of articles I sent you with homosexual men abusing little boys? I highly doubt those boys were “consenting”. I’m not confusing the two. You are. Th only way you can possibly defend your stance is…well…you ARE a homosexual and can actually frame the homosexual mindset, and even if you are…you are just one person. I gave you a list of thousands.

          • Spoob

            No, I can speak up for homosexuals without being one, I think you know this very well. And in fact I don’t dispute what you say, the RCC DOES contain many homosexuals. But guess what? So does YOUR church. So do ALL Christian churches, so do ALL Muslim churches and every single denomination of every faith everywhere, because homosexuality exists in ten percent of the human species.

            And the RCC isn’t the only one with a pedophile problem either, try this website on for size:
            http://www.stopbaptistpredators.org

            And there are many others.

            So maybe it’s time to stop with the superiority complex.

          • SundayWorshipistheMARK

            I’m not. The RCC claims power over ALL churches.

            “No man has a right to choose his religion.” (New York Freeman, official journal of Bishop Hughes, Jan 26, 1852)

            “The Church…does not, and cannot accept, or in any degree favor, liberty in the Protestant sense of liberty.” (Catholic World, April 1870)

            “Protestantism has not, and never can have, any right where Catholicity has triumphed.” (Catholic Review, June 1875)

            “Religious liberty is merely endured until the opposite can be carried into effect without peril to the Catholic Church.” (Rt. Rev. O’Connor, Bishop of Pittsburgh.)

            “It no longer can be said today that the U.S. is a Protestant country.” -Cardinal
            Strich of Chicago, quoted in Time Magazine, Aug. 5, 1955 ”

            “It is error to believe that Every man is free to embrace and profess that religion which, guided by the light of reason, he shall consider true.” Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus (of Errors), Issued in 1864, Section III, Indifferentism, Latitudinarianism, #15.

            “It is error to believe that hence it has been wisely decided by law, in some Catholic countries, that persons coming to reside therein shall enjoy the public exercise of their own peculiar worship.” Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus (of Errors), Issued in 1864, Section X, Errors Having Reference to Modern Liberalism, #78.

            So in essence each demonstration represented at the United Religious Council answer to one man…and it aint God. Only one entity has a chair at the United Nations as a church AND a state…go figure.

            So who has superiority?

            Today I would say the American Christian fundamentalists, the evangelicals, the “non-denoms”, the pentecostals CLAIM to have superiority. No one else would have the gall to tell the Catholics who were the original Christians that they aren’t Christians at all.

            If the RCC claimed power over all Christian churches it would have been centuries ago.

            it is very sad the intolerance of those who say that they are the only “true” Christians,

            Jesus Christ spoke of a God of Love and Mercy

            I notice that the anti Catholics hate the message of Pope Francis who said, “who am I to judge”

            but it is interesting that these “true” Christians never belong to a Church, they have no denominational doctrine, and their theology is that of hate

            they truly are the useless lunatic fringe of anti Christian hatred and bigotry

            Umm those quotes are centuries old…and I only gave you a small sampling, I have PLENTY. Like I said, who is the only rep in the UN as a church. It surely isn’t the fundamentalists (which is a really overused expression) “non-denoms” or any other entity. Only one can make this claim. The Vatican.

            superiority complex???imposition of the new leftist fashion on existing culture???you fruits are bad apples

          • Spoob

            Fruits, eh? Think I made it clear I’m not gay. I just don’t want to lynch gay people, I think they did that a few years ago and you probably approved.

          • BREEDER

            Your weak, you just made a
            False claim,, thats gay, and the tactic used to justify your causes.
            you know its all about overcoming establised society
            Vengefully, pathetically

          • Spoob

            Are you the kind of Christian who thinks Jesus is telling to take a gun and shoot homosexuals in the head? Because that is kind of how you sound to me.

        Hello. If you read more carefully I also pointed out girls are kept out of boy scouts because of attraction issues – so boys who admit they are attracted to boys should not join the boy scouts for the same reason. Parents do not want their daughters going on such overnight trips with other boys. They don’t want their sons going on overnight trips with boys or men who profess unnatural attractions to males either.

      You are clearly mentally ill and are suffering from religiously based paranoid delusions, Most likely the result of parentally inflicted mental abuse and emotional blackmail via childhood religious Indoctrination. I pity you. Seek professional psychiatric help.

        Hello. Yet why is it you’re the only one offering hate here?

          Oh… the hypocrisy and lies…

          BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

          What you call hate, I call a dose of reality.

    Gay rights have always been about God deniers and nothing more. The Boy Scouts have always honored God and so doing had decided to obey God’s Law and when man’s law over rides God’s law you have an impasse that is not easily crossed and you are fueling the flames of insurrection. Keeping God’s law was the intention of the founding documents of this country, we left Europe to return to god of the bible. The Boy Scouts were founded to raise a boy to be a God fearing man of principle and today we can not even spell the word let alone define it properly..

    The Judges that are members and involved with the Boy Scouts or the other more Christian organization called ‘Trail Life’, should just ignore the ruling and continue their involvement until there is a law suit brought up and then take that case to the Supreme Court where that ignorant California court ruling will be quickly over-turned .

    i guess it is time to invade california and set it straight

    Godless secularism has been wrong all along. It has no morality. It treats blasphemy as freedom, infanticide as choice, and sexual perversion as equality.

  • William Tyndale

    And the moral decline and fall of the American Republic continues unabated.

  • datakcy

    As we watch the rapid decline and destruction of Western civilization, may we be reminded that history repeatedly demonstrates that the morality of a nation is the barometer of its stability. Sodomy, fornication, adultery, pornography, and all immorality are symptoms of the collapse of the foundation that under girds a healthy nation, society, and culture.

    Christian values are non-negotiable. They are anchored in the Law of God who is immutable. The world will do what the world wants. Christians are called out the world for the purpose of serving the Savior who paid for our sins with His blood and life. The word “church” means ‘called out ones.’ It is not a building or institution. In Hebrew, the word for “God” is the same as ‘judge.’ We are to judge righteously according to His Word.

    God is the Judge of this world and He will judge the unrighteous acts of all who have forsaken the atoning gift of His Son, the Messiah of Israel. We are either under the umbrella of His cross or left to our own devices to face His righteous (lawful) wrath. History shows it did not work out very well for the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah. For those seeking mercy and pardon, read the Word of God, the Bible and find eternal peace and forgiveness. None of us has any hope without Christ Jesus.
