Southern Baptist Leader Calls Bigotry "The Heart and Soul of Scouting"

Posted by Paul Constant on Thu, Feb 7, 2013 at 2:44 PM

Crooks and Liars says:

Dr. Richard Land, who is in charge of addressing social, moral, and ethical concerns as president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, says that dropping the ban on gay members and LGBT leaders will be a "catastrophe" for the Boy Scouts of America because excluding homosexuals represents the "heart and soul of scouting."

Huh. I can think of a few other organizations whose "heart and soul" consists of exclusion and bigotry. If you would like to watch video of Land saying this on Crooks and Liars' horrible, rickety proprietary video player, you should go check it out on their site.

On Topic...
