I'm sure glad I'm a Republican...

...and have no connection with this latest lunacy:

AP: The Pentagon has agreed to warn military bases worldwide that they should not directly sponsor Boy Scout troops, partially resolving claims that the government has improperly supported a group that requires members to believe in God.

The settlement, announced Monday, came in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, which says American military units have sponsored hundreds of Boy Scout troops

This has nothing to do with "separation of church and state," religious liberty, discrimination, fairness, or concern about the Constitution. The ACLU is a classic leftist organization, and they HATE Christianity. And they HATE the Boy Scouts for supporting traditional American values and patriotism, and for defying leftist attempts to destroy traditional morality (disguised as a campaign for gay rights, though the left really only cares about gays as a useful tool of destruction, and would dump them in an instant if they left the reservation.)

If the Boy Scouts required a belief in Buddha, do you think the ACLU would be starting lawsuits? No way. Or Allah? Then they would be defending the Scouts.

Specifically, the BSA endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness; have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principles of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation's role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; and are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.

Imagine how your local lefties sneer at stuff like that...
