Obama Speaks Out Against The Boy Scouts’ Descrimination

Once again, President Obama shows he’s on the right side of history.  Through a statement made to the gay newspaper, The Washington Blade, the president, while praising the organization as a whole, calls out their recent decision to ban gay leaders and scouts as “discrimination”.

“The President believes the Boy Scouts is a valuable organization that has helped educate and build character in American boys for more than a century,” White House spokesperson Shin Inouye said in the statement. “He also opposes discrimination in all forms, and as such opposes this policy that discriminates on basis of sexual orientation.”

Either he sees his recent  statements supporting LGBT equality as a political plus (many polls show the acceptance of gays has increased dramatically in recent years) or he is doing what he thinks is right regardless of the political consequences.  Either way,  history will look back and see a pioneer in the new civil rights movement…. I wonder how we’ll see Rick Santorum and Michele  Bachmann?
