“Philadelphia Mayor John Street is slamming the door on the Boy Scouts this holiday season, all while he is putting out the welcome mat for homosexual activists. Yesterday I talked about a triumph over unconstitutional hate crime laws in. However, that victory happened despite the city mayor’s efforts to promote the homosexual lifestyle at the cost of religious liberty and freedom. has given the local Boy Scouts chapter until December 3 to renounce their belief that it is morally wrong to have homosexual scoutmasters, or the city will break a longstanding lease on the city-owned facilities the local chapter rents. Mayor Street has made it clear that the faith behind the Boy Scout policy is not his concern, and neither is the safety of the children whom the Boy Scouts implemented the policy to protect. If you need to know more of where the Philly Mayor’s sympathies lie, just look for him this Saturday at City Hall in , where he will be presiding over a same-sex commitment ceremony. While might be known as the City of Brotherly Love – that love is not shared for the good work of the Boy Scouts.”
