Charging the Boy Scouts for Their Views

The California legislature is attempting to pressure the Boy Scouts of America by making it ineligible for non-profit tax status unless it allows leaders who are transgender, atheist or gay.

It's a real example of left-wing totalitarian lawmaking.  The Boy Scouts can have their views, of course -- which reflect the group's heritage and traditional Christian morality -- but unless they're willing to knuckle under to the "tolerance" thought police, they've have to pay extra for them.

Of course, the "tolerance" crew is appalled that organizations not adhering to a lefty world-view are allowed to exist with non-profit tax status.  They are considerably less appalled that outfits like state Planned Parenthood affiliates are actually getting taxpayer money from the state, despite credible whistleblower claims of more than $100,000,000 in illegal overbilling.

But hey, that's just "tolerance" -- liberal style.
