It’s already a settled issue, per the Supreme Court.

I’d expect that most lawsuits along those lines would be dismissed. Those that aren’t would be covered by legal insurance provided through the national organization, or the sponsoring one.

I would expect the Mormon and Roman Catholic sponsored BSA councils etc to fight tooth and nail. Both have VERY deep pockets.

Yeah, that's what I thought after Bowers v. Hardwick (state anti-sodomy statute rulings). Then, only a few years later comes Lawrence v. Texas (with O'Connor reversing herself) and the floodgates opened.

Well, the Roman Catholic Church doesn't have as deep of pockets that it used to. They allowed homosexual leaders in their organization and it didn't work out so well.

Well some will. But...The Mormons have recently run tv ads showing a tolerance of homosexuals. As in they don't really approve, but they're welcome to join anyway. Traditional Catholic parishes (if any actually sponsor BSA -- I doubt it) WOULD fight tooth and nail. But many everyday Catholic "new church" type parishes would have no trouble with this at all.

BTW, I just heard a Fox News Radio report on this. Said it would be up to individual councils to decide. Maybe the best decision would be to leave and form a new, conservative organization.

Some individual Catholic church groups do, what makes you think mormons with fight this based on their very recent statements and their long term history.
