The Connecticut Human Rights Organization Affirmed Its Earlier Decision to Exclude the Boy Scouts from the State Employee Fund-raising Campaign


Associated Press, February 9, 2001
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)

Summarized Article

The Connecticut Human Rights Organization affirmed its earlier decision to exclude the Boy Scouts of America from the state employee fund-raising campaign because the states gay rights law prohibits the furtherance of discriminatory conduct in state facilities. The agency made a similar ruling banning the BSA from the fund-raising campaign last year, but decided to reconsider it after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the BSA has the right to exclude gays from leadership posts. Philip Tegeler, legal director of the Connecticut Civil Liberties Union, said the CHRO's new ruling emphasizes that the Supreme Court case was limited to volunteer leaders and ''does not give this or any other organization a general license to discriminate."

 

 

 

Scouting For All is not an alternative scouting program.
We are an education and advocacy organization reaching out to gay and nontheist youth and adults in our effort to get the Boy Scouts of America to rescind its exlusionary policy.
