Senate Acts to Protect Boy Scouts!
The U.S. Senate voted 98-0 to ensure that the Boy Scouts of America will continue to be able to use federal facilities for their meetings and group outings. The amendment was necessary because of recent decisions from federal agencies and rouge federal judges who are trying to kick the Scouts off of military bases and other federal facilities because of their requirements that members and leaders be morally straight and declare their non-denominational faith in God.
The measure was an amendment to the defense appropriation bill, which was later temporarily scrapped because of the failure of a procedural vote that would have cut-off further debate and amendments. When the bill is reintroduced, Public Advocate will work to ensure that the Boy Scout provision remains in the legislation.
"This vote was a victory for pro-family Americans who want to support the Boy Scouts of America's rights to their religious beliefs and their freedom to protect their members from sexual predators," said Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio. "The fact that it was supported so overwhelmingly, by even some of the most radical liberals in the Senate, shows that these elected representatives know that the American people will support the Boy Scouts over the ACLU and the radical homosexual lobby an day of the week. Public Advocate will continue to fight to see that this legislation becomes the law of the land."
Public Advocate has been fighting for the American family for over 25 years, and is exempt from federal taxation under IRC section 501(c)4. Contributions for gifts to Public Advocate are not tax-deductible.
