Boy Scouts sue Philadelphia over rent, gay rights

The Boy Scouts Cradle of Liberty Council in Philadelphia actually tried to do the right thing and enact a nondiscrimination policy, but the Boy Scouts of America forced them to rescind it and to kick out those pesky gays and atheists. And now they're getting kicked out, and so they're suing to avoid eviction.

Inasmuch as the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly acted to allow municipalities to sever ties with groups that violate local nondiscrimination requirements, the Boy Scouts' last best hope may be finding an activist judge.
